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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too great March 18 2012
By Robert
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was a bit disappointed this time. The book arrived on time, but the front cover had been torn off. Why? I don't know. This is the first time it happened to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected... Nov. 4 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bowed, but unbroken... June 4 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Beaten, maimed, half-starved, yet our Honor assembles what remains of her crew and fights on. I have nothing but respect for this book. Mr. Weber writes with razor sharp clarity (something we don't see very often)and gentle wit. Honor's funeral was stirring for the participants, but for this reader it just made me want to cry.
Thank goodness she makes it back...with a company in tow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weber does it again March 4 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Well, David Weber has done it again. His Honor Harrington series is, in my opinion, the best science fiction available to true fans. It's wonderful. Echoes of Honor outdoes even In Enemy Hands and Flag in Exile, my two personal favorites. It's a must-read!

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding! Feb. 8 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of those books that is so good, five stars just isn't enough. Along with On Basilisk Station and The Honour of the Queen, this is my favorite book by David Weber. The vibrant characters and intriguing plot drew me in and kept me to the very end. A book I have and will continue to read again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars The other half of "In Enemy Hands" Dec 23 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
So - finally, I get to find out the other half of the story! I see there are a number of people who gripe about Honor, and how David Weber tends to write unbelievable characters. Well, his characters are definitely larger than life, but what makes them so is their depth of commitment to their respective causes. As for the story itself, given the preconditions established at the beginning (from the end of "In Enemy Hands"), it is possible - long odds, but possible. And long odds seem to be Honor's specialty, to the Peeps' dismay and ruination. Go, Honor!

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep them coming July 3 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This latest Honor novel is in my opinion the best yet. Don't buy this unless you've read the other Honor books, you won't appreciate the emotional maturity she's showing. This is my favorite but as one reviewer said the ending was too fast. Can't wait for the next installment in the series. Time for some romance though!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too little Honor June 21 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
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)
