I read the electronic copy of the book and I will buy the hard copy. If you are following the this Series with Harrington, you will find this book a refreshing read. I found myself looking forward to the next book in the series based on the writing and depth of the plot in this book. Mr. Weber has shown his skill in keeping this series interesting and very readiable as the plot becomes increasingly complex and detailed. I look foreward to reading this book in hardback on the back deck of a lazy summer afternoon, as all good books should be read.

I don't believe Mr. Kent has reread any of Weber's books or he would have known what was coming in this book. All the information and signs were available so how could he not know unless he is a skimmer reader. Sorry, but I have reread most of my favourite books at least 20 times; how else can you pick up suttle details. Mr. Weber has combined our hopes for a "future perfect" with our past history and come up with what can only be described as a "possible future reality". Keep up the great work; but - yes please, write a little faster.

It's been far too long since the last main series novel. Weber needs to stop pursuing several series at once and finish them one at a time; 4 1/2 years is way too long. It might help if he stopped making them door stoppers. But I digress. It's here, and that's what matters.

Ever since we learned just how involved Mesa has been, I've been waiting for the great Manticore-Haven alliance to start, and I wasn't disappointed. The first great curbstomp of the Manticore/Solarian conflict wasn't too shabby either. Everything else progressed smoothly, but as I alluded, he is creating too many plot points to fulfill easily (or quickly), and letting his editor immunity get the better of him in making this a doorstopper. But I've heard that he plans for the series to be 15 books, and if this is #12 i expect the last 3 to be a wild ride of threads coming together.

To my fellow reviewers; chill. Cartoon, the ARC(advance reader copy) has been on sale at Bean's site since early February. If you had actually read Kevin's review you might have realized that. It has typos and errors, but it is still the book. Pay attention. Kevin, kyle, have you been in hibernation since you read At All Costs and completely missed the two side novels where almost 'everything' you complain about was set up? Chapters of material both in this and the two previous side novels have been spent on the Mesan development of new drives and their preparation for what you call a "deus ex machina", but is nothing of the sort. If you missed something that big, I feel no need to address your other mistakes, like completely misreading the Queen's character growth.

I'm giving a 4 star book 5 stars to counteract the lack of thought by my fellow reviewers.

(this review based on the ARC sold by Baen in Feb-2010)

As much as I loved the first 5-6 books, this series has finally gone off the rails. The scale has just gotten so huge that the majority of the books are now just moving all the various universe bits forward, with little or no focus on the main character. This book also had the second stupidly arbitrary plot twist of the series, which was the final nail in the coffin. Some details (minor spoilers):
- Honor spends all of her time in meetings, away from any and all action. Yay for the hero.
- the outcome of the only space combat is known well in advance by everyone, including the characters
- way too much time is spent moving political plots forward. This is no longer just limited to Marty/Peep perspectives, now you also have Solly and Mesans as well
- there is a totally arbitrary thing that happens that cripples the Manty war effort. It is basically a reverse Deus Ex Machina that is completely unexpected, and unable to be detected or stopped. I can only guess this was to added to ratchet up tension, but it comes totally out of the blue and took me completely out of the story
- the massive Solly invasion/combat that the whole story builds towards... doesn't happen in this book. This is the first book in the series that doesn't end on a dramatic combat resolution, and just sort of ends abruptly.
- (spoiler) the queen abandons her long held hatred for the Peeps and agrees to work with them on a 'what the hell' (literally).
All in all, terribly disappointed in the direction this series is going. My guess is that since Honor didn't die in the last book (as was the original plan, from what I've heard), this book had to refocus the series on the new enemy to give the series someplace to go. It kinda succeeds, but makes me lose my interest in seeing it go there.
