5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Start!, 16 Oct. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crown Of Slaves (Honorverse (Paperback)) (Mass Market Paperback)
Although set in the same universe as David Weber's Honor Harrington books, this book tells the story of Berry Zilwicki, formerly a street child from Old Earth, and her friend Ruth Winton as they are introduced to the political scene in the interregnum between the cease-fire and resumption of hostilities between Manticore and Haven. Ruth is sent as the Crown's personal representative to the funeral of a prominent member for political reform within the Solarian League and Berry goes along with her for company and a bit of camouflage. Berry's father, the star kingdom's premiere intelligence agent, is sent along to keep them out of trouble (hah!). With Anton out of the way, the two girls are drawn into a whirlpool of events that appear to be spiralling out of control!
As this has all the hallmarks of being written mainly by Eric Flint, the political background and interactions between the various parties have a greater depth than is usually present in the Honorverse. However, the military actions are also generally at a lower key than Weber's, though no less intense. The authors have brought in elements from earlier novels to build up a new generation's story while still keeping familiar elements from earlier stories.
I only hope that any further books in this series keep up the standard of this book.
