A Rising Thunder was a long wait for us Honor Harrington fans. For those of us that were hooked after Basilisk Station by the space battles and how Honor had a force of will, A Rising Thunder is more of a sign that the series has morphed into something else.
Most of the book has nothing to do with Honor Harrington. It talks about the entire Honorverse. What is going on all over the galaxy. All the intrigue. It is an amazing universe that I think would be a very interesting MMO. But I just didn't feel the love of the older books here. Especially with the long wait for this book. I was disappointed.
I have heard of the Dresden Files but never read them. I have read the Harry Bosch series and the Dragonlance Chronicles and enjoyed both. So I thought I'd like the idea of this series.
Storm Front feels like a gritty detective novel with the concepts of magic, demons, and other fantasy concepts in the world.
I truly enjoyed the book and was engrossed by the main character Harry Dresden. Very much seems to have just about everything against him but he is just a good guy trying to get through life with the cards deal to him. I'll definitively try the next book.
I have been itching for the release of the latest in the Lost Fleet. Invincible delivered all that I have come to expect from Geary and the Lost Fleet story. Military Science Fiction with Space Battles delivered with excitement. I had no idea how Geary was going to get out of the bind the fleet was in. Now set up for the next book I will be waiting eagerly.
I'd recommend anyone that enjoyed the original Honor Harrington before it was mostly covered in the political intrigue would love the Lost Fleet series. Don't start with this book. Start with The Lost Fleet: Dauntless.
The only negative I can think to say about Invincible is I enjoyed it so much I am really wishing it wasn't over. So waiting for the next book is going to be long.
