5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the read
If you are a huge fan look away this is a "SPOILER ALERT"

As a captain she is superb, this books shakes it up for as the title says she becomes a prisoner of the Peeps. Despite this turn of events the story line keeps its pace and still manages to throw in a story twist or two!

its well worth the read!

3.0 out of 5 stars In Enemy Hands - more of the same, but not as good
This was my least favorite of the Honor Harrington series. The characters were even more cardboard in depth than previous novels.

Someone else's review said "everyone that is good is good and everyone that is bad is bad". I agree completely.

Now, I like the Harrington series, but maybe more for the combat scenes than I had realized (which...

Honor and Co have been caught! But these are not just the usual bunch of prisoners!

This has some pretty gruesome fire-fights - excellent sense of action.

Highly recommended!

Just when you're high on your pedestal comes the greatest likelihood of a fall! More detail of what makes the characters tick generates greater opportunities for drama and this volume doesn't' disappoint! Can't wait for the next episode!

5.0 out of 5 stars In Enemy Hands, 10 Feb. 2004

This review is from: In Enemy Hands (Honorverse) (Mass Market Paperback)
The Harrington saga continues. Of course, the Peeps are still out to win the war that never ends. The create devious plots that challenge Manticore to the utmost. Ms. Harrington is drafted into service again, though her duties as Steadholder are more than enough for one person to deal with. Because of her extreme experiences, the bond between Honor and Nimitz are even stronger, and Honor is constantly fed the feelings of others. Through this she discovers that Earl Hamish Alexander is strongly attracted to her. This proves too much for Ms. Harrington and she uses the opportunity to take command of her new squadron.
Though all other ships are saved, the one that Ms. Harrington is on is captured and Honor is now "In Enemy Hands". Cordelia Ransom, the Peeps PR person, plays this for all it's worth. But keeping Honor and her friends captured might not be as easy as Ransom thinks.
I've enjoyed all of the Harrington books thus far, and this is no exception.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wait for the other half of the book!, 2 Mar. 1998
By A Customer
I love Honor Harrington and the whole universe that David Weber has created. I especially like the rewards that he bestows upon the righteous endeavors and heroic activities of his leading characters. This story is only half done though. It is obviously a pre-quel to a second book in an already long saga of stories. It seems unfair to the fans to have to wait for months for the end of the story and pay double for the story. One other comment, David's villains are being drawn with to much attention to their horrid-ness. We don't need any more depravity in our recreational reading. Suffice that the bad guys are bad. Please don't go to such detail about how bad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Calvary to Honor's Rescue!, 15 Nov. 1998
By A Customer
Honor finally loses bad. Not only is she captured, but she is sentenced to be executed by the head of the Peep's Bureau of Comunications. She also loses sight in one eye, and is dependent upon others for everything. What I loved about this book is how David makes the truly evil bad guys believable, and that there could be very good guys fighting for the Peep's. An excellent yarn with plenty of good sub-plots to keep you up all night. What I like about this series is David's views on politics and military stratagies.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid exploration of characters as well as action, 25 July 1997
By A Customer
In Enemy Hands violates one of the key rules of series fiction--this episode doesn't end at the book's end--but overall the book significantly advances the series, allowing Weber to develop his characterizations within a solid action plot. We discover reasons to like some members of the People's Republic; we learn more about the psychology of treecats; and Weber gets closer to the female psyche in its many forms. If only his grammar were better! But the book is definitely worth adding to any space opera collection.
