Product Description

From Amazon

David Weber provides intergalactic thrills and political intrigue in this far-flung military space adventure, continuing where In Enemy Hands left off. The People's Republic has publicly executed Honor Harrington--or have they? While the Star Kingdom swears revenge, Honor (alive and kicking) plans escape from the prison planet of Hell. Weber's extensive knowledge of military protocol combined with deep technical exploration make for a highly detailed book, yet he avoids bogging down in it. His great storytelling skills keep this book racing along like an action-adventure movie. Fans of Star Wars and old-fashioned seafaring tales will find lots to their liking here, as will those looking for a future setting in which women play an equal role. If you're new to the Honor series, start with On Basilisk Station, the first of Commander Honor Harrington's adventures. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Extrapolating Horatio Hornblower into a rousing far-future galactic conflict, sex-changing him into Admiral Lady Dame Honor Harrington and setting in motion a myriad of teeth-baring space-naval commanders make Weber's military SF (In Enemy Hands, etc.) irresistible. This hefty eighth installment of the Harrington saga opens with Honor's supposed execution?but wait! She and her empathic treecat, Nimitz, though wounded, are really on Hades, a prison planet of the nefarious People's Republic (Peeps), where they are hatching a plot to spring its POWs, smash the Peep fleet invading the space of Honor's Manticoran Alliance and bring everybody safely home. Meanwhile, unscrupulous Peep politicians hamstring their own commanders with bumptious informers, while the Manties' Admiralty officials cope with lukewarm allies and the bloodthirsty polygamous Calvinist Graysons of Honor's other homeworld, a Puritanical society hell-bent on dispensing with Lady Harrington "and no mercy!" Weber's enormous canvas allows for masterful combat sequences, technological expertise and appealing character painting. Most of the military types (among whom women abound) on both sides are tough, decent and efficient, while most politicians (including those in uniform) are self-serving numskulls?portraits that most readers will applaud, along with the rest of Weber's rousing novel.

I actually read this before "In Enemy hands", and was shocked at the opening. DEAD? But the book had only just started! Honor Harrington is harder to kill than that, however.
This book wasn't what I expected, but I don't mean that in a bad way. Although people pick "Ashes of Victory" as a turning point for the Honor Harrington books, this is the first novel where it begins to focus on the lives of those who fight alongside her, or, in this case, in her absence. The universe of Honor Harrington ceases to revolve around one very impressive character, and takes on a life of its own. The glimpse into Havenite politics is fascinating, as is Honor's own family.
If you've never read Honor Harrington before, I wouldn't advise you to start with this one. Try "On Basilisk Station", because it is the first novel in the series, and its a series well worth reading. If you're familiar with HH, you'll get everything you've come to expect from this: great battles, internal struggles, dirty politics, and above all, wonderful characters.

First of all, let me say that this was an enjoyable read. However, it was deffinitely not David Weber's finest work. To start with, it was too long for its plot. We could have done without the first half of the novel, which consisted entirely of shocked reactions to HH's "death", which the reader knew was fake anyway. And then lots of the rest was naval action sans Honor! I think this should be classified less as an Honor novel and more as Manties vs. Peeps, with Honor action sequences to liven it up.
I WAS impressed with the fact that the Peeps were finally humanized. You got to see the war from both sides, and I actually started to feel sorry for them. But the end when HH and company finally return home against all odds was too short. I was looking forward the whole time to her reunion with White Haven and how that affected the RMN, but all you got to see was the com transmition when they arrived! Well, I guess that's another book. (See Ashes of Victory)

I've read a few of the reviews before this and have to say that thank god we are not all alike! I loved this book, in fact, I have loved all of the books and can say that this is a series I hope goes on for a LONG time. I enjoy the story and the character. I don't think the world revolves around her any more than the world revolves around Bill Gates but if you listen to the news it certainly does. It's all in how you view the story.
This is a series about a woman who has deep convictions about what her duty is to herself, her country and her job. She's not perfect, she makes mistakes, but she doesn't quit! She doesn't do everything like a god or a superhero but she holds herself to a strict moral code and inspires the people around her to believe in themselves and their abilities. I've had the pleasure of working briefly for a person who had some of Honor's ability to inspire people to be better than they believed they could be and I wish the world had more people like them.
The characters are human, they make mistakes. What makes them better than average is that they keep trying. It's said that hero's are no better than anyone else, they just kept going in spite of the odds.
This is the first author who I can say I have enjoyed everyone of the books I have read. I have just one word to Mr. Weber....MORE!

Look, I like space opera as well as the next guy, but the Honor Harrington series just strikes me as increasingly suited to juvenile readers. The characters all speak in exclamation points (the density of exclamation points per page seems to be rising), characters' statements always have to be characterized ("she said pertly," "he chuckled," "he said angrily") instead of being written in a way that allows the reader to infer how the character meant the statement, the "good guys" are always completely wonderful in their own saintly ways, and people ramble on endlessly about every permutation of an obvious point.
I really enjoyed the initial Harrington novels. I bought this one after forgetting how I'd become increasingly disenchanted with the series for the above reasons, and because of the "Jack Ryan" effect -- "just declare her empress of the whole universe and be done with it," is the tone of the statements I started muttering while reading the more recent novels. HH seems to always be put through the torture of the week, in the same manner that soap operas and bad action shows ham-handedly try to cudgel viewers into thinking "oh, that poor girl," or "oh, that man is so evil." If I were a character in one of these books, I'd start thinking "you know, it's amazing how the ENTIRE UNIVERSE seems to revolve around this ONE PERSON. It's like everyone else is just a minor character in a bad novel..." I cite Lois McMaster-Bujold's excellent Barrayar series as a great example of how multiple strong and interesting characters can exist in the same universe and plot line.
