    Captain John "Black Jack" Geary's legendary exploits are known to every schoolchild. Revered for his heroic "last stand" in the early days of the war, he was presumed dead. But a century later, Geary miraculously returns from survival hibernation and reluctantly takes command of the Alliance fleet as it faces annihilation by the Syndics.

    Appalled by the hero-worship around him, Geary is nevertheless a man who will do his duty. And he knows that bringing the stolen Syndic hypernet key safely home is the Alliance's one chance to win the war. But to do that, Geary will have to live up to the impossibly heroic "Black Jack" legend.

    One of the hardest things about trying a new series is getting through the first book. This book captures you from the first few paragraphs and never lets you go. The ONLY reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because some of his rivals in this 1st book are little stupid and illogical in my opinion.

    The Star Kingdom of Manticore and the Republic of Haven have been enemies for Honor Harrington's entire life, and she has paid a price for the victories she's achieved in that conflict. And now the unstoppable juggernaut of the mighty Solarian League is on a collision course with Manticore. The millions who have already died may have been only a foretaste of the billions of casualties just over the horizon, and Honor sees it coming.

    Lawrence says: "Great series."
    "At last..."
    Overall

    I'll keep this simple. This book wasn't the best one in the "Harrington" series but this is a worthy addition to the ongoing series. This series is the best sci-fi I've ever read.

    Prince Roger is coming home, but home isn't what it was when he left. Traitors have murdered his brother and sister, his nieces and nephews. His mother, the empress, is still alive but in the hands of Roger's own biological father, who controls her through drugs and physical and psychological torture. A new heir to the throne has been conceived, and once the child is born his mother will no longer be necessary to the traitors' plans.

    Douglas says: "Great Ending To A Great Series"
    "...Can I have some more?"
    Overall

    The title of this review says it all. The ending was bittersweet but appropriate. I just love the characters and wish there were more books to follow. I gave this book 3 stars because it was so different from the preceding installments. I realize now that I was in love with the setting of scientifically advanced humans in such a primitive culture such as Marduk. I also missed a certain important character from the first 3 books.

    The world has changed. The mercantile kingdom of Charis has prevailed over the alliance designed to exterminate it. Armed with a multitude of small technological improvements - better sailing vessels, better guns, better devices of all sorts - Charis faced the combined navies of the rest of the world at Darcos Sound and Armageddon Reef, and broke them.

    B. Bozeman says: "Thought Provoked"
    "David Weber is Awesome!"
    Overall

    I gave this book only 4 stars because the first book in this series is so much better. The problem with this author is that he is so ADDICTING! I Have loved every book he has written and I've read or listened to at least 15 of his novels. You can't go wrong with Mr. Weber's work.

    Roger Ramius Sergei Chiang MacClintock was young, handsome, athletic, an excellent dresser, and third in line for the Throne of Man. So it wasn't surprising that he became spoiled, self-centered, and petulant. After all, what else did he have to do with his life?

    Euryleia says: "Lots of fun!"
    "A GREAT HERO MAKER"
    Overall

    I discovered David Weber by picking up "Off Armagedden's Reef" book on cd and I became an instant fan. I read the "Honor Harrington" series next which completely blew me away. Prince Roger is next and I can't wait to listen to the next one. Mr. Weber knows how to create a "hero". I must state honestly that I like the "Honor Harrington" series best but "Roger" is very good.

  • Salem's Lot

    Stephen King's second novel, Salem's Lot, is the story of a mundane town under siege from the forces of darkness. Considered one of the most terrifying vampire novels ever written, it cunningly probes the shadows of the human heart and the insular evils of small-town America.

    Eileen says: "Classic King on audio - FINALLY"

    Overall

    Stephen King's Salem's Lot was a good listen. I love how the story built up to the final confrontation with the lead vampire but the "epilogue" in my opinion was a bit disappointing.
