    What price victory? The war with the Republic of Haven has resumed . . . disastrously for the Star Kingdom of Manticore. Admiral Lady Dame Honor Harrington, Steadholder and Duchess Harrington, the single victorious Allied commander of the opening phase of the new war, has been recalled from the Sidemore System to command Eighth Fleet. Everyone knows Eighth Fleet is the Alliance's primary offensive command, which makes it the natural assignment for the woman the media calls "the Salamander."

    Would you listen to At All Costs again? Why?

    I love Honor and her world. This whole series is really a good listen. Weber tends to get a little bogged down in the technical details but the action is well worth the wait, he really knows how to write the drama into it and bring the reader into the scene.


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

    I've listened to the entire series and this reader is a superior performer!!


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

    I cry pretty regularly and get absorbed into the characters mindsets.

    In the second book of the Star Force series, Kyle Riggs has another bad year. The Nano ships have a new mission--one that sentences their pilots to death. Meanwhile, the governments of Earth want to steal Star Force's Nano technology for their own. Worst of all, Earth has made a promise to the Macros, and the machines are coming to collect.

    What made the experience of listening to Undaunted the most enjoyable?

    I am famillar with Kris Longknife and like her character.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like the main character, her interaction with her crew is interesting to listen to.


    Any additional comments?

    I think its cool that Kris has a love interest that is finally compatible. She deserves to be loved by a good man/character. Hope he doesn't get dead.
    The story moves along quickly and was done too soon. I was expecting and wanting more length but what there was was enjoyable.!!

    Stephanie Harrington had always expected to be a forest ranger on her homeworld of Meyerdahl until her parents relocated to the frontier planet of Sphinx in the far distant Star Kingdom of Manticore. It should have been the perfect new home - a virgin wilderness full of new species of every sort, just waiting to be discovered. But Sphinx is a far more dangerous place than ultra-civilized Meyerdahl, and Stephanie's explorations come to a sudden halt when her parents lay down the law: no trips into the bush without adult supervision!

    What made the experience of listening to A Beautiful Friendship the most enjoyable?

    I loved the story, I am hoping my 10 year-old-daughter will listen too.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The girl was terrific, Steffanie. SHe is a great, brave, and tenatious character which is just what tree cats seem to like.


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

    No, but she is almost as good at the reader of the Honor series.


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

    both in several places.


    Any additional comments?

    THis book was set way before the Honor Harrington character, the girl in the book is actually an ancestor several generations before Honor and the first persone to ever be adopted by a tree cat and this is the story about how humans and tree cats first made friends. Its a wonderful adventure and a great story!!
