5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult at times, but worth it..., 9 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Rising Thunder (Honor Harrington (Hardcover)) (Hardcover)
This book is, perhaps, the last of the books that David Weber says will retell the story from a different perspective. He explains this in an authors note in 'Storm from the Shadows'. Although there isn't much repetition, parts of the first few chapters happened before the end of 'Mission of Honor'.

I was tempted to make the rating four stars, but changed my mind and set it to five; my reasons being that it is difficult to do what david has set out to attempt and in my opinion he does a very good job.

He's trying to tie everything together, and set in place enough back-story/background to allow later occurancies to be both believable and more understandable; at least that is what I feel.

I enjoyed reading the book; it didn't quite satisfy my craving for a Honor Harrington novel, like the rest have done. Indeed, the two books featuring Michelle Henke as the lead were more enjoyable from a pure space-opera perspective, and very good in their own right.

I am however looking forward to seeing how all the threads introduced in the book both develope individually and come together.

I also wondered if David could continue to make the actions of the 'mandarins' from old terra believeable; without giving anything away, he managed it very well as far as I am concerned. The justification for the alliance between Haven and the Star Kingdom/Empire was also well handled; another potential stumbling block I thought.

So whilst you might not enjoy it as much as others, I think after consideration you'll be glad you read it.
