    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.

    What did you like best about Mission of Honor? What did you like least?

    When we got to finally pickup from the previous books plot I really enjoyed it, and as always like the POV shifts to fill in for us and bring other characters alive.

    That said, I am not a fan at all of a book that goes back into previously covered material, even if it was only alluded to to 'flesh it out'. This is the first book of the series were I found myself wondering if I wasted my money. I think Mr Weber could have succeeded in far less pages with the same clarity and provided newer content then the few parcels that really made it to the book. I think this might be because originally this was supposed to be the last book with Honor in it but changed in the stream of writing?

    I still enjoy the book but hope this is the last that bounces back and forth in time perspective.


    Would you be willing to try another book from David Weber? Why or why not?

    I am actually planning on trying the Star Kingdom series next. I was 'turned on' to Mr Weber from his collaboration with David Drake and Eric Flint. After reading Drake's RCN series I noticed via other works done by Mr Drake and then remembered the name from some of the Grantville 'verse books.


    What about Allyson Johnson’s performance did you like?

    She is talented and does an admirable job of bringing life to characters with emotional depth and her skills are an asset to the series.


    Did Mission of Honor inspire you to do anything?

    No, nothing that I can say other then it might have inspired my patience with a writing style I do not like as noted above.

    "All over Seattle, humans have been going missing, only to turn up as newborn vampires - the sure sign of a rogue vamp on the loose. It looks like Dredge is to blame - the same sadistic Dredge who gave me my scars and who may well be in cahoots with the demon Shadow Wing. If so, Otherworld and Earth are screwed. The only way we can hope to defeat Dredge is for me to travel home to Otherworld and face my own demons. For unless I sever the ties that bind me to Dredge, all hell is going to break loose."

    What did you like best about Darkling? What did you like least?

    Having read the preceding books I enjoyed the fleshing out of the main character. I enjoyed the look into her own personal baggage and found her more "connectable" then the other two sisters. I found the romance points far less jarring then with Witchling.

    Overall I was surprised and happy with the series to date.


    Would you recommend Darkling to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the series to friends who enjoy this type of read. The type of characters are not for everyone.


    What does Cassandra Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings accented reads and lends emotions were I might not have done so with my inner voice. Those emotions made some characters more likable.


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

    I am not sure, I would like to say yes but these books are fairly short so would have to either take large liberties with the plot or combine several into a movie. Supernatural transfers to the "big screen" often seem to miss something from the books that takes away from their charm. In the end I would say probably.
