Book 10 was a bit dry for my taste, but necessary to line this one up. This was a return to form with an enjoyable arc.
I'm getting closer to the end of the Harrington book series. All of them as I am reading all of the series in order. All I can say is that I am going to have one hell of a hole in my life when this absolutely amazing ride with the incredible characters in these books comes to an end.
I love this entire series. It is very lengthy at times, and I do feel that there is almost too much detail on every topic. But it's still worth the read. I would advice to download it at the highest quality though. When the book is downloaded compactly there is no pause between the transitions in scenes. So if your attention drifts for a second you could end up in Haven after just listening to Manticore characters and get VERY confused. Especially when it's a new character you haven't heard of before and you don't know what side if the war they are on. Ha! I noticed that with all the books that are 50 chapters and beyond.
Techno-Thrillers, Jack Reacher, Mitch Rapp fan!
struggled to finish
knew it would be good but too many questionable or meaningless paragraphs on "STUFF" that did not add to the storyline
Back to what we enjoy about the Honor Harrington series. Still a bit of politics, unavoidably, but more action oriented and directly involved than the previous book.

I became distracted by the breathing of the high, French accents. Otherwise, it was well performed. The story, as usual, was great. I hope he doesn't get bored writting the same characters over and over, because I want him to keep writting this story line.
Drama, humor, intrigue, heart pounding action, and great characters. Also excellent narration. The only way it could be better would be to make it a TV series. That would be outstanding!
Awesome book and series. sets the standard for space Opera and military Science Fiction. if a TV or movie series could be made of these books that were ture to the books, it would leave star trek and star wars in the dust.
70+, been reading SF since 1953. Vision is going so have switched to Audible.
I have really enjoyed this series so far and look foreward to the next book. I would recommend it to all who love a good epic. I am 68 and the actions of the characters allow me to revisit the ideals of my younger years. I love them in the audible edition. I started reading SF in the mid 50's and I include David Weber in the family of classical SF writers. Sometimes it does get somewhat confusing due to the multitude of characters and plots but then again I don't want the story to end and I look forward to the next book in the series.
The story is mostly ok but there is about 20min of strait up religious ceremony in the middle that serves no purpose except extending the book.
Also I think too much time was spent trying to convey specific signs the tree cats were making rather than something like 'made the two handed sign for x'
These factors make the book seem boated.
