    Peril and strife strike on a double front for Honor Harrington and company. 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. And as if that weren’t task enough, Honor must also face down a centuries-old nemesis in the crumbling, but still mighty, Solarian League.

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

    Weber has grown complacent that his books in the Honorverse will sell simply because the previous ones have done so. I purchased this book expecting a full story, like On Basilisk Station, and instead got a teaser with no plot arc whatsoever.

    This novel is a jumbled mishmash of words with poor pacing, lack of finality, and two-dimensional characters shoved into the limelight. For an Honor Harrington novel, it manages to actually have her in it for all of probably 20-30 pages.

    Don't waste your money or download credits on this book.


    Has A Rising Thunder turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes. I will not be getting the next Weber book.


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

    No. It would have no ending.

    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.

    G. M. says: "A Must Have Series!!!"
    "Solid book but far below par for the series"
    Overall

    This novel tends to wind and skip around randomly between settings, failing to tie together plot points as well as previous books of the series.

    Sometimes the narrator's accents in this book get down right painful. I would have preferred her to just read the book with some variation of vocal pitch than have so many bad accents.
