Nov. 1 2003 A Honor Harrington novel
The New York Times bestselling Honor Harrington novel is now in paperback! The new government of the Star Kingdom has brazenly ignored the wishes of Queen Elizabeth--threatening to end a shaky ceasefire agreement and destroy the very fabric of the Manticore Alliance against the terrorist Committee of Public Safety. As a senior political advisor, Honor has seen the cost of war on her people and vows to restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution--or die trying.

Product Description

From Amazon

David Weber's Honor Harrington series continues in this 10th novel, which picks up the action several years after the previous volume, Ashes of Victory. With a ceasefire in place with the Peeps, the new government of the Star Kingdom ignores the wishes of Queen Elizabeth and then threatens the very fabric of the Manticore Alliance against the People's Republic of Haven. We find Honor in the role of a senior political advisor, performing with her usual flair and élan.

With War of Honor coming in at over 800 pages, Weber has room to expand subplots and secondary characters and bring to the reader a feeling of depth and completeness seldom seen in science fiction novels. Favorite characters from past stories return, many of them growing in stature from unimportant secondary characters to major players in the "Honorverse." Weber serves up trouble in Silesia, the excitement of a new wormhole junction, scheming in Manticorian politics, strange events deep in Peep territory, and plenty of exploding spaceships--and, as publisher Jim Baen says, "We like exploding spaceships." --Ron Peterson --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Publishers Weekly

In previous installments of David Weber's bestselling space opera series featuring the intrepid Honor Harrington, she's won the sometimes unwilling admiration of friend and foe alike in her battles with the brutal and corrupt People's Republic of Haven. In her 10th outing, War of Honor, the People's Republic is no more, but Lady Admiral Harrington, following in the best tradition of C.S. Forester, Patrick O'Brian and Robert A. Heinlein, faces her most dangerous adversary yet: a new government in her own star kingdom run by the petty, venal and stupid former Opposition, who proceed to squander the hard-fought victory.

1.0 out of 5 stars A loooooong book for such thin rewards May 24 2004
Format:Hardcover
Why is it that almost every sci-fi writer late in a series starts to pad their stories with such ungodly boring fluff, that their books become almost unreadable.
Such a great series, up to maybe book 8.
I practically skipped (OK, I skimmed real fast) any chapter or section that dealth with the Havenites or High Ridge and his crew. And still did not miss one important fact about the story ARC.
When the whole story revolves (and it does folks) around a stupid president who allows a manipulating Sec of State to cut and paste her dispatches on his home PC, you know you're grasping for plotlines. Oh come on, like she never had a clue to check the integrity of her correspondences to a man she HATES.
To make this matter worse, literally 400 pages of this very long (and very very long feeling book) are dedicated to pointless "Gee, I can't believe they refused our demands" and "Wow, I can't believe they're demanding that" "Blah Blah Blah" crap that seems to go on endlessly.
This isn't Sci-Fi. It's Danielle Steele minus the sex. In other words, it is absolutely the most boring supposed sci-fi novel I have ever read.
Oh and 20 or so pages of action at the very end do not, I repeat DO NOT, begin to resemble the reward a reader should get for putting up with this flat 2-dimensional soap opera.
The author obviously tried to have too many people/groups/political affiliations in his novel to make all of them: interesting, relevent and practical.
We get it already! Please, after the first time Haven rejects Manticore, and Manticore rejects Haven, we understand there'll be no compromis. We get it! We get it! Move along pleaseeeeee....
But the author takes hundreds of pages to do so, and tortures us along the way.

2.0 out of 5 stars War of Meetings March 19 2004
By Dan Lee
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am starting to get the impression that Honor is slowly approaching that place fighter pilots don't ever want to be in: Low, Slow and out of Ideas.
I got cornholed by folks for my review of David Weber's Ashes of Honor because I thought it was slow and spent too much time dealing with minor sidebars instead of Honor being Honor. This book only confirms what I had feared in the last book.
The book was awful. I received this book for my birthday and as soon as I picked it up I got a bad feeling about this. After reading through it three months later, my instincts were proven right. Normally, I can finish one of his books off in one night, but this one was an epic struggle to go through this one.
Most of the reviewers are dead bang on about its characterization weaknesses so I won't dwell too much on that.
First of all, it spent so much time in discussions and meetings. This is what I do my damndest to avoid as much as possible at work so why would I want to spend my time reading about them?
As I said before and I am now pleading. David, please stop beating us over the head with the obvious. She's pretty, she's smart, she loves her Treecat and she's very humble. Enough. After ten books this is starting to come across as really needy and annoying.
Finally, I think David Weber is a good author as long as he can keep everything short and to the point. He's fallen into what I call Tom Clancy disease. It appears that he is so wrapped up into the world that he created and feels every minor twist is of absolute importance. This is why we end up with 900-1100 page painful to read monsters instead of a good flowing book of 500-600 pages.
Please get back to the descriptive, yet compact style that made Honor Harrington so good in the first place.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like the Politics, its the tactics I miss Feb. 27 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book has the flaws that several other reviewers not - the amazing ability to alter correspondence with no consequence, etc. - but the one that cuts to the quick is this seems to be the first time we see Sharon Foraker beating Honor at tactics. The Peeps use the "triple ripple" to wipe out the LACs at Grendelsbane but Honor can't defeat defensive systems of Lester Tourville based partly on LACs. We are told that the missles won't target them but the Peeps worked. It seems that something is missing here.
The book points out a number of the potential bad turns the series is faced with. Reading it helped me see what I hope for from future books and what I dread might happen instead.
First, I hope we avoid the "godess" complex that sometimes gets strong women in series. The Clan of the Cave Bear went there - if it was good Ayla discovers it. Hnoor is getting there. I think that the Crown of Slaves outgrowth will help the series immensely.
Next, let Honor get her own life. I understand White Haven creates interesting ethical questions and explores the treecats better but even Victor gets his own girl. Pursuing the contexts of love and life in a society isn't really what this series is about. I think most readers would prefer Honor to find a different path than this one - the political overtones were interesting until the High Ridge Government collapses (one of the more interesting set of scenes in this book) but now that value is diminished. Exploring the outrage of Grayson if this happens is, at best, of no interest.
Still, I love his books and this one is a great lead in to a numbre of very interesting explorations. Buy it to have the background but hope the path chosen from here returns to the politico/military realm and not the the psycho/social.

Either Weber is infatuated with his own rhetoric or he doesn't even bother to proof his writings.
