    After centuries of stasis, the island kingdom of Charis began to defy the edicts of the Church of God Awaiting - egged on, some say, by the mysterious warrior-monk Merlin Athawes. Now, in the wars and intrigues that have cascaded from Charis's declaration of independence, the populous Republic of Siddermark is sliding into chaos.

    What made the experience of listening to Midst Toil and Tribulation the most enjoyable?

    The story is the only enjoyable part of what Audible and McMillian have offered up. Buy the book and sit down for a good read but since Audible and McMillian have refused to listen to their readers/listeners I suggest that you avoid this offering as it will give you little joy. The "so called" publishers have used a fourth narrator on this series and have yet to offer a reason why. They started with an incredibly tallented reader in Mr. Oliver Wyman and after two books switched to Jason Culp. Mr Culp was a shock because his reading felt wrong. Then after Mr. Culp we got Mr. Keating. Let's just say that my enjoyment went from south of good to what the heck are these morons doing to David Weber's story?


    What didn’t you like about Kevin T. Collins’s performance?

    I hated the fact that he pronounced things wrong and was the fourth performer in six books. This would never have stood for any other series of books, why is it standing for this series?


    Any additional comments?

    Switch publishers Mr. Weber If they won't listen to you when you make comments then DROP them and site attempted destruction of your work product, and credibility.

    There are two sides to any quarrel... unless there are more. Queen Elizabeth of Manticore's first cousin and Honor Harrington's best friend Michelle Henke has just handed the "invincible" Solarian League Navy the most humiliating, one-sided defeat in its entire almost thousand-year history in defense of the people of the Star Empire's Talbott Quadrant. But the League is the most powerful star nation in the history of humanity. Its navy is going to be back – and this time with thousands of superdreadnoughts.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book carries on the side story of the Honorverse with great gusto. Lots of detailed and personal scenes.


    Have you listened to any of Allyson Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She does a wonderful job but the shifting of narrators from Jay Snyder makes it tough to take the publisher seriously.

    Peril and strife strike on a double front for Honor Harrington and company. After a brutal attack on the Manticoran home system, Honor Harrington and the Star Kingdom she serves battle back against a new, technologically powerful, and utterly nefarious enemy. And as if that weren’t task enough, Honor must also face down a centuries-old nemesis in the crumbling, but still mighty, Solarian League.

    What did you love best about A Rising Thunder?

    That it was an Honor Harrington novel and a continuation of a story that I have been following since 2000.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Rising Thunder?

    The Treecats and the refusal of the so-called educated politicans that refuse to believe that they have anything to add to a discussion or are afraid to be around them for fear of being found out.


    Have you listened to any of Allyson Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to them many times and I wish that she would STOP with the accents. I understand that she is trying to make the story more intresting but she is just muddying up the story and making it harder to follow.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    disgust at the blind averice in the Solie politicians attitudes. I nearly screamed. They act just like Washington politicians.


    Any additional comments?

    Bring in a male narrator for the scenes where a male is the focus like the ones for the senior undersecretaries. The breaking up between male and female voices would enhance the books. The publisher might even go back and redo all the books that way. I know that I'd get them.
