Product Description

About the Author

With over seven million copies of his books in print and seventeen titles on the New York Times bestseller list, David Weber is the science fiction publishing phenomenon of the new millennium. In the hugely popular Honor Harrington series, the spirit of C.S. Forester’s Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O’Brian’s Master and Commander lives on–into the galactic future. Books in the Honor Harrington and Honoverse series have appeared on fourteen best seller lists, including those of The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA Today. While Weber is best known for his spirited, modern-minded space operas, he is also the creator of the Oath of Swords fantasy series and the Dahak science fiction saga. Weber has also engaged in a steady stream of bestselling collaborations, including his Starfire series with Steve White, which produced the New York Times bestseller The Shiva Option among others. Weber’s collaboration with alternate history master Eric Flint led to the bestselling 1634: The Baltic War, and his planetary adventure novels with military science fiction ace and multiple national best-seller John Ringo includes the blockbusters March to the Stars and We Few. Finally, Weber’s teaming with Linda Evans produced the bestselling Multiverse series. David Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife and children.

David Weber's "Honor Harrington' series has been a delight to read...however he's begun dividing and interweaving his timelines thru several Novels and seems reluctant to get on with it!
A Rising Thunder is the perfect example,while it is a lot of fun to read and almost stands alone it really dosn't move the 'Honor" timeline much,and it seem to be the first half of a book ...Or the third part of a separate timeline...

The series begins > On Basilisk Station

Format: Hardcover
"A Rising Thunder" reads like the unfinished prelude to the grand finale of the "Honor Harrington" saga; not surprisingly, it is the first half of a manuscript Weber has written already chronicling the war between the Solarian League and the Star Empire of Manticore and its allies. While this isn't by far the best in the "Honor Harrington" series, it is not the worst, and is commendable to the extent in which Weber describes Harrington, Queen Elizabeth Winton of Manticore and President Eloise Pritchart of Haven in almost realistic, three-dimensional terms; however, too often, the plot revolves around secondary characters far less compelling than these key protagonists and their closest friends and allies. One major objection I have with Weber's ongoing plotting is in demonstrating how quickly Manticore and Haven transform themselves from deadly enemies to stalwart allies in the face of Solarian League military aggression. Devoted fans of Weber's "Honorverse" will find much worth noting in "A Rising Thunder"; however, those who are seeking the space-opera science fictional equivalent of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series will be disappointed unless they are familiar already with Weber's "Honorverse" novels.

Great Book. Every time I think David Weber has run the course with this series he finds a new plot line for his characters. I really enjoy how well he distributes the writing between the characters and ensures their development. Fantastically well written and I'm looking forward to more.
