As with the others in this series, this one contains stories written by other writers, about supporting characters from the series. And a story by David Weber himself all about Honor Harrington.
The first story 'Ruthless' by writer Jane Linskold, runs for just under one hundred pages. It tells of how a refugee's young daughter is kidnapped, as part of a plot to bring shame upon the Star Kingdom's royal family. This forces Crown Prince Michael, younger brother of the queen, into some tricky choices. This is capably written and readable enough but the prose isn't always the most involving. It does have some good character moments and a decent ending though. On it's own it would rate 3/5.
Next comes 'An Act of War' By Timothy Zahn. Featuring Charles, a mysterious con artist who gets caught out by the People's Republic of Haven. To save his own skin, he offers them a plan that will make Manticore and a would be ally fall out. He then has to try and stay alive and adapt to changing circumstances. The main character is intriguing and the story does start off very well. It does get a bit involved in the middle, but it does have some clever surprises and twists up it's sleeve, making for a satisfying finale. It would also rate 3/5 on it's own.
But then we have the Honor story.Read more ›
