I picked this book up at a library sale and I'm glad I did! This picks up the story of Honor Harrington on her adopted world of Grayson. This is as much a political novel as it is Weber's standard military sci-fi. Honor has brought change to Grayson and not everyone likes it. At the same time, the war between the Star League and the People's Republic continues. I thought the way Weber handled the politics was good, but a bit predictable as it felt like the end result was inevitable. I guess its difficult to write a novel of political intrigue if you know that somehow in the end, the heroine is going to end up winning. Maybe he should take a hint from G. R. R. Martin and have the heroine actually lose once in a while. Otherwise, this was well written and well paced, if entirely predictable. ( )

Another fun adventure. Poor old Honor is pushed to the max this time & it was well done. Info dumps got pretty old, though.

While my library has more of the series in audio, they're missing the next 3, so I'm going to quit listening to the series now. 6 were plenty, but it was a fun romp even though I'd read them all in paper before. There weren't any surprises, but it was still fun. Congrats to Weber for creating such heroine. ( )

In some ways, I think this book is just as strong as the first; death-rides meet politics. In others, I really think Harrington's becoming super-human, and it bugs me. Additionally, the Peep characters really gain some depth in this book, but I'm still sad to say that there isn't a lot to redeem the religious extremists that pit themselves against Harrington. I dunno why I'm so picky about villains that have something to redeem them; maybe it's just that I can't believe that anyone would truly be evil simply for evil's sake.

Good read either way. ( )

Another interesting book in the series. We should be coming to the point were some part of the book falls to pieces; however a good fast pace plot with interesting characters. ( )
