    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.

    Story

    After 3 chapters I am giving up. The narrator and the Audible editor have either never listened to the pronunciations from all the previous books in the series... Or were just pathetically lazy!

    Almost every name and place is mispronounced. In an audio book series this is a mortal sin.

    I will read the book instead.

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    I am actually having trouble believing that the mind that created the Men at War, The Corps, and the Badge of Honor series had ANYTHING to do with this complete piece of [REDACTED].

    I strongly suspect that I have a streak of masochism in me after I realized I had somehow made it through this "book".

    Mr. Griffin.... What happened? Seriously!

    Also, I love narrator Dick Hill in the Jack Reacher series but he should have walked away from this one. Not his best work by a long shot.

    In the wake of apparent self-destruction of the Forerunner empire, two humans - Chakas and Riser - are like flotsam washed up on very strange shores indeed. Captured by the Master Builder, misplaced during a furious battle in space, they now find themselves on an inverted world where horizons rise into the sky, and where humans of all kinds are trapped in a perilous cycle of horror and neglect. For they have become both research animals and strategic pawns in a cosmic game whose madness knows no end....

    No one wanted another war. Thomas Theisman didn't. After risking his life and a fresh round of civil war to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety's reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution, an interstellar war was the last thing he wanted. Baron High Ridge didn't. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and as long as he could spin out negotiations on the formal treaty of peace, his government could continue to milk all those "hostilities only" tax measures for their own partisan projects.

    Maurice says: "Extensively Abridged"
    "All Meetings/No Action!"

    I highly recommend this book if you are suffering from insomnia. Author must be paid by the word.

    Rear Admiral Michelle Henke was commanding one of the ships in a force led by Honor Harrington in an all-out space battle. The odds were against the Star Kingdom forces, and they had to run. But Michelle's ship was crippled, and had to be destroyed to prevent superior Manticoran technology from falling into Havenite hands, and she and her surviving crew were taken prisoner.

    Daniel says: "Important for the Honorverse Story!"
    "What happened to Weber's writing? Or his editor?"
    Overall

    First off, The narrator has the most ridiculous cast of female voices I have ever heard (Think Monty Python).

    Secondly, Over the years I have really enjoyed the Honorverse series (with a couple of notable exceptions). However, this book reminded me of the incredibly boring War of Honor installment in this saga. Heavy on politics and political meetings, and very light on character development or even much action for that matter. Combine that with half the book being a re-hash of events previously presented in other books and you have a really long dull book.

    The author needs an aggressive editor... Or he needs to be paid by the book and not by the word.

    Did I mention the huge cliffhanger ending....

    Avoid this. I don't think you are missing anything significant in the series.
