Great Author Poor Read
on 9 December 2009
Let me start by saying I love David Weber and have 99% of his work. Some I have numerous times as they have fell to pieces from the amount of reading I have devoted to them. unfortunately this will not be one of the ones needing replacing.
The story is well paced and well put together but I could not find myself caring about the majority of the new cast and was just wanting the next mainstream book to come out to get on with the story. All the pieces have been covered in general in other books and the extra detail this imparts does not seem to me to justify this book .
This book fills in a few blanks which may become important later but those blanks don't look enough to me to justify the purchase .
If you have the rest of the Honorverse books buy it , if not either wait for the paperback or give it a miss .
You wont have lost out on a lot if you don't read this
