Usual strong entry. The beginning of the Manticore star kingdom and the battle of Manticore. Travis Long begins his adventures. ( )

Very good, very rich. Travis' arc isn't quite as meteoric as Honor's was - he's having to climb in a Navy that's barely holding on against Parliament, not Honor's ready-for-war one. But similar sorts of - he's in the right place at the right time, with the right answer. Though he seldom gets any (official) credit for it. Winterfall is interesting - he keeps almost waking up, and then going right back to his complete focus on politics. Nice to see there's more to Ensign Locatelli than Travis gave him credit for. And there's a big spoiler in the royal family tree in the front papers - it should have been accurate to the beginning, not the end of the book. Fascinating watching Manticore develop the concepts and attitudes that infused the Navy in Honor's time. Next, please! Oh - and I'm very glad I reread the first book before reading this. I remembered many parts, but I'd have been confused - especially about people - if I hadn't done the reread. Chomps, Lisa, Metzger, etc. ( )

Fast read with some interesting characters that neatly fills a niche in early Manticore and Honorverse History. ( )
