After a brutal attack on the Manticoran home system, Honor Harrington and the Star Kingdom she serves battle back against a new, technologically powerful, and utterly nefarious enemy.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I spend a lot of time listening to audiobooks and I have listened to all of the other Honor Harrington novels that are available in audio. The time I spent listening to this book was not as enjoyable as it was with most of the other books in the series but it was still worth doing so just for the continuation of the series.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    More battle action and character development, less of the frustrating political BS. The Sol political leadership seems to be infested with dilusional idiots and I found myself tuning out thier dialogue. I may listen to it again because of this but I don't think I missed much. Some might think that becoming familiar with these Sol bureaucrats would be the character developement I wished for but how can you become invested with characters that seem to be complete fools? To me, this book almost seemed to be a prelude for something bigger. I was left wanting more of some plot lines and less of others.


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

    As I said earlier, I have listened to all of the other Honor Harrington novels and she does a good job with all of them. I agree with another reviewer that the accents can be distracting at times and I wouldn't mind a male voice for some of the male characters but overall I think she does a good job with these books.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not. I'd wait for it to hit the movie channels. Other books in the series would make a better movie.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though my review sounds negative, I have enjoyed this series. There are a lot of good characters in these books, excellent space battle scenes, good sci-fi tech, drama from many directions, and an interesting collection of societies and planetary systems. This particular book fell short of my expectations but if you are a fan of the series then you should get it. Even if it's just to continue the story. :)
