4.0 out of 5 stars A distinct improvement, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cauldron of Ghosts (Crown of Slaves, - Honor Harrington universe Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Whilst there are a couple of the chapters transplanted from other branches of the series that have become common (for reasons I understand but annoy me) in the 'Honorverse', and the book (or at least the kindle version) could have done with another proof-read, I really liked this book.

Particularly after the first third, it has both the overarching plot contained within a single book that is missing from too many of the recent books in the series, and the mini-plots which are interesting in themselves as well as feeding the series narrative. This is so much better than most of the recent books, perhaps reflecting the fact that wars are generally much more 'exciting' when loosing is understood to be a realistic prospect. If you were, like I was, wondering whether it was worth buying this, buy it.

Obviously the warning about this book being so deep into the series that you shouldn't read this without having read the rest of them applies.
