Another part of the epic story of Honor Harrington and the Honorverse. As the author states in the afterword, this story closes a few story arcs. There is a lot of story in this book. An obvious must read if you have read the series and it doesn't disappoint. The author at least hints at possible future chapters as this one closes on the main story line. ( )

Very good entry in the series with lots of action. A bit predictable towards the end and an ending that felt too easy after all those struggles, but overall very enjoyable. ( )

The book takes the plot forward and closes out large parts of the plot. The problem is that it tries to make each situation come alive in 50 pages. Then does it again and again. Introducing characters one knows will have minimal impact on the overall story. In many ways it felt like many short novels strung together to a long book. Due to that I often found myself skimming while reading. Entire sections showed a scene that has no impact on the book and one could easily tell that while reading it.

I liked the book but would likely have liked it more if they cut out 200 pages from it and made it a more focused story, Especially the last third had impact and was interesting. ( )

This is the final instalment in the Honorverse that directly involves Honor herself as the Manticoran Empire takes its war against the Solarian League directly against those that proved too stupid to be able to stop the fighting that had already consumed millions of Solarian lives and destroyed the League's economy but first we see examples of Solarian atrocities against citizens of independent systems in a fashion that the Solarian Navy was generally supposed to defend against. And when an aborted Sollie attack on Beowulf led to the loss of Lord Whitehaven, Honor's husband, Honor lets loose the inner beast that she had been so careful to keep chained leads to the final confrontation in Sol System itself!

Okay, this was not entirely a bad read and it sort of wraps up the series (though if you've been following along you'll have noticed signs of trouble to come...), but oh boy, was it was wordy! Weber reckons that he will be writing other stories in this universe but Honor is so stupendously senior these days, he'll have to develop other characters just to keep the story grounded in the common folk ( )

Perhaps, the penultimate book in this excellent series. If we develop prolong, David Weber should be an early recipient. Much planetary mayhem as the Detwiller Plan is enacted by long-hidden moles of the Mesan Alignment. The Solarian Mandarins are delighted until The Dutchess and the Allied Grand Fleet translate into their home system. Will Honor finally be able to retire to raise her family? Not likely as long as the Alignment and the Detwillers still exist. ( )
