That Mesa and Manpower are, as usual, up to no good, and ploting some incredably destructive move on the rest of the Galaxie is stated, but not a hint of what's going to happen.
With the time period between the publication of Honor Harrington books, the reader is somewhat frustrated at the wait to see what is actually going to happen.
I am looking forward to the New Honor Harrinton book due next year, which hopefully, will fill in some of the blanks.
I would personally also like to see further Prince Roger stories, which Mr Weber cowrote with John Ringo.
I'm not a huge fan of strictly military type stories, even if they are sci-fi, but I enjoy spy vs. spy capers and this book showcases the talents of two spies that are regularly described as the creme de la creme of spies and counter-espionage workers. David Weber's choice of names for the far-flung planets that the action takes place on and around --Erewhon for one plus Jeremy X as the leader of the Audubon Ballroom -- gave me some good mental chuckles as I raced through the action .
I'd recommend this for all who like novels of the early Tom Clancy genre. Although I found some of the descriptions of the military engagements a little on the tedious side, they were easy enough to skim through in order to keep the basic thread of who was thrashing who and who they probably were affiliated with without entirely losing the thread of the basic story itself.
I had read Crown of Slaves much earlier and now think that I should probably go back and read it again, if nothing else I should probably reread them both in order so that I can follow the political machinations more easily.Read more ›
I have given up on this series. Anyone want to buy this hardcover cheap?
