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.
The war between the People’s Republic of Haven and the Star Kingdom is finally won and peace established, but grave danger looms - for there is a plan well on its way to completion designed to enslave the entire human species. Behind that plan lies the shadowy organization known as the Mesan Alignment.
Task number one for Honor is to defend against another devastating Mesan strike - a strike that may well spell the doom of the Star Kingdom in one fell blow. It is time to shut down and secure the wormhole network that is the source of the Star Kingdom’s wealth and power - but also its greatest vulnerability. Yet this is an act that the Earth-based Solarian League inevitably will take as a declaration of war.
The thunder of battle rolls as the Solarian League directs its massive power against the Star Kingdom. And once again, Honor Harrington is thrust into a desperate battle that she must win if she is to survive to take the fight to the real enemy of galactic freedom: the insidious puppetmasters of war who lurk behind the Mesan Alignment!

It was a very dry and slowly paced book. I understand the author needed to lay the foundation for this and follow-on books, but did he half to take most of the book to do it?! It would have been better if he started off with finishing the battle in the previous book There was so little action action in this book that I doubt I'll bother to listen the next one. This one certainly didn't have any 'Thunder'.
First, why in the world would you change the pronunciation of "Manticoran" after twelve novels? Second, although this installment was much more interesting that the 12th book, I still protest the absence of the main character in so much of the book. Last, for the second time in a row, David Weber has ended the book in the middle of the story. That is extremely irritating!!
david webber's last two audio books have been so different from the rest of the previous ones to make them seem like some other authors work. instead of being action and contests of the star nations. the last 2 books have been mostly politics and the tricks they like to play. the only thing that can make this book any better is take out most of politics and replace them with some action. i think you would not want to sell books not matching the previous ones in a long line of books on the same people.and in an ongoing series
i dont know if i can find another audio book since your site does not have a lot of the best books of some of my favorite authors
i have no cmment on any reader as as they can be understood.
anger for money spent for product i will not use; disapointment for loss of an audio book source i can trust
i am suprised and dissapointed with last couple of encounters ihave had and the slowness of your site. it is your choice to display or not. i guess since mine is negative it wont be posted.
I must say I found this book hard to listen to mainly because it really does not focus, or at least give enough attention to the main character Honor Harrington. Furthermore and most importantly it is just not that interesting, which is sad because I like David Weber, as a writer but this is not one of his best works. If someone looking for good recommendation regarding this book you will not get from me unless I'm tortured to death.
This is one of the worst audiobook I have ever purchase!
Will move on to CliveCussler audio's, but he has fallen into the repentative of the same plot and perdictable ending.
The focus of the main character was lost. If I wanted a book on politics , I would have purchase a Obamas guide on how to run the country to the ground. This story line was so boring as it was a skipping record that continue to go on and on on the same point of view of how Maticaore was weak. Please , this was like having a tooth pulled for about 8 hours with it still no conclusion. This book left me feeling like I was ripped off. The battle ended in 1/2 a chapter in the middle of the book and was described like a aftger thought. You could have put the main character Honor in just one chapter total. she was mention here and ther but never was really part of this book?
I could have missed this book and still not miss much in the storyline. This to me was a paycheck for the author and a real peace of trash. Did the publisher even read this story? , I doubt it.
I have all the series books on audio and am really disappointed with this book and would maybe like to wait for the final one of the series if at all. I don't really have much faith in the author effort in his story telling and see how he have buried this great character he has created.
After 12 books, they started pronouncing Manticoran "correctly." Honor makes a cameo, and the story is only minor characters and stories loosely held together.
Include Honor. More on the treecats.
After 12 books, she finally started pronouncing Manticoran "correctly." After hearing it pronounced incorrectly for 12 books, hearing it correctly was distracting and annoying.
I like the Manticoran universe. I think it interesting and full of opportunities, that Weber then fails to explore.
Whats the deal with holding the other half of the book??? if its ready then get it out here so i can darnwell finish the series!! making me wait is just going to push me to other series to listen too. Ya'll are trying to think like them dumb#$% movie people and hold up a sequel... IF YOU GOT THE THING WRITTEN, LIKE WAS SAID BEFORE YOU EVEN PUCLISHED THIS PART, THEN PUBLISH ALL OF IT!!!! i'd still buy both parts. just do it already!
It would have been if I could have finished it. This narrator could not do a male voice if she had a sex change. I listened to maybe a half hour before I felt like screaming and quit and then went to BAEN and bought the ebook. I have read all of the series and sincerely wish that they had gotten an male narrator for the male parts. As it is, this was truly awful and I have wasted my money.
Only if she narrated female characters and ONLY female characters.
Yes, go buy the regular ebook version from BAEN as this narration made it unusable and unlistenable.
I have learned to listen to the samples first.
I'm almost two hours into the story and we have yet to see Honor Harrington - really? I thought this book was about her, so where the heck is she?
I really want my credit back. The book so far is really slow and all that's happened is a great deal of military posturing and trying to remember who is with whom, whom is fighting whom, and wait... yes, the secret group that is fighting everyone plus yet another new enemy that the description says is coming... wow, I need a flow chart to figure out what's going on!!
I enjoy hearing about the relationships and characters in the stories, not so much the politics and descriptive space battles. I'm dumping this book and looking for something different. Maybe I'll come back in the future and try again. I doubt it...
IF your a fan of the series this book help set the stage for things to follow, and wile it is nota bad book its not a really good one either.
I find the accents the narrator gives some of the charcthers in the books to be very annoying.
If they made the series it to movies i would go to see them. But this would not be all that great as it got mostly talking in it and not that much action
