Lets get the bad out of the way first. This is not the best Honor Harrington by a long way. The complexity and multiple story lines of the Honorverse have really come home to roost - and not in a good way. The major flaw with this book is that in order to tie off lots of interacting plot lines between the main HH series and the 2 spinoff series - Saganami Island and Wages of Sin, events from those 2 series have to be rehashed and take up probably 1/3-1/2 of the book. Anyone who has read Storm from the Shadows or Torch of Freedom will be overfamiliar with much of the background exposition. Certainly Storm from the Shadows and Mission could have been merged and lost a few hundred pages in the process. It also suffers from having far too many characters to track as a result.

Its quite unfortunate - the 300+ pages involving Honor and the core Oyster Bay plot are vintage Weber, the rest drag the score down.

However you can see why Weber was forced into this approach - the Honorverse has become too sprawling and complex, hopefully this is the end of his attempt to introduce a bit more segration into the Main and Sub series. If you read any Weber interviews part of this stems from Weber planning to finish the HH series with a Nelson-like Death for Honor during At All Costs, but deciding not to go ahead thus having to come up with a different way of putting a full stop in this section of the series.

This book is meant to be a closing chapter in the Havenite Wars and to sow the seeds of a new start. The book accomplishes this well with an excellent mix of Diplomacy and Action.

This is the 16th full length novel in the science fiction series set two thousand years in the future which David Weber initially created for his character Honor Harrington. Where the last six books in the series were organised into three linked but distinct sub-series which portrayed unfolding events with the focus on three different perspectives of the developing crisis, Weber appears to have abandoned that approach with "Mission of Honor" and this book covers the whole picture.

Mission of Honor gives you the initial outcomes of the attacks launched but not resolved in "Storm from the Shadows" which gave that book a "cliff-hanger" ending. But only the initial outcomes: it appears that the galactic order is starting to collapse into a catastrophic series of wars and chaos so vast and devastating as to make the wars which dominated the first eleven books look like a vicar's tea party.

This book is more disciplined in style than some of the recent volumes of the series, reminding me of Tom Clancy in the way it jumps between the perspectives of a very large cast while ruthlessly maintaining a clear storyline. Weber appears to be determined to eliminate the large-scale overlaps which were a consequence of the arrangement of the preceding books. He does this by restoring a clear chronological sequence, so that all the events of "Mission of Honor" follow on from the conclusions of all the recent books and you no longer find a battle or conversation which has already been described from the perspective of, say, Honor Harrington described again from the perspective of, say, Michelle Henke.

Weber's long series of books set in the "Honorverse" is thoroughly enjoyable if you like "military science fiction". That is, if you like mind-cheese with lots of stuff blowing up. Unlike most other authors in this sub-genre, Weber even manages to make his characters believable and sympathetic, to sometimes have realistic conversations and motivations. And the universe he creates is, on the whole, consistent.

The series went through a bad patch a few books back where there was lots of "jaw jaw" and very little of the "war war" that made the series so exciting. But I'm pleased to say that with the previous installment (At All Costs) and this one, he's back on form.

I have three criticisms. The first is that the books will make little sense unless you've read the previous installments. That's fair enough. Authors writing series have to strike a balance between making later works accessible to newcomers and annoying their established customers with repeated material. In a short series, a bit of repetition won't do any harm, but in this one - 12 books so far, with at least two more in the pipeline and quite probably more to come - it would be actively harmful.

The second is related to the first, but is, I think, rather more important. There are several spin-off series, also set in the same universe, which some readers may not have bothered with. Unfortunately one of them, the "Wages of Sin" series, turns out to be of vital importance, and the "Saganami Island" series is also of some relevance to this book and, to a lesser extent, to the previous one.
