    Honor Harrington has been exiled to Basilisk station and given an antique ship to police the system. The vindictive superior who sent her there wants her to fail. But he made one mistake: he's made her mad....

    Overall

    Stellar book! Just be warned, the entire series is not available from audible.com. Only the first seven books are in audio format.
    The narrator is okay - not great, but not wretched. The book itself, and it's heroine, Honor Harrington, is fabulous, and I encourage anyone to read this series in any format they can get their hands on.
    I have not read much science fiction previous to this book, but I must say this is exceptional storytelling. I was afraid that I would not be able to follow the intricate strategies outlined in the series, and it only gets more politically complex as the series goes on, but found that I was up to the challenge. Honor Harrington is a well developed heroine. She has a special relationship with a Treecat, an intriguing species from her own planet with empathic powers and of high intelligence, which is what led me to download the audiobook. This is just one side of the well rounded person that is Honor Harrington. A gifted tactician, you will be drawn into her struggles to unite a less than enthusiastic crew behind her in the struggles she faces at Baslisk.
