    Honor Harrington has survived ship-to-ship combat, assassins, political vendettas, and duels. But this time, Honor and her crew, ambushed and captured, are aboard an enemy ship, bound for a prison planet aptly named "Hell" - and her scheduled execution. Yet the one lesson Honor has never learned is how to give up. She and her people are going home--even if it means conquering hell to get there!

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Good characters. Good tale.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course - Honor. Because she's a woman breaking barriers with intelligence and talent. Relate to her as a woman in business who has had to break quite a few barriers.


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

    I've listened to the Honor series. I think that Allyson Johnson is terrific. I'd listen to other stories she reads.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes - I fall asleep listening - wake up, wind back and re-listen. Awesome.

  • The Black Box: Harry Bosch, Book 18

    Story
    (1750)

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    Michael Connelly knows how to write. His characters are genuine, realistic and lasting. His plots are solid. His descriptions put the reader "into the picture". I enjoyed this tale immensely for those reasons.
