Publisher's Summary

For eight bloody years, the Star Kingdom of Manticore and its allies have taken the war to the vastly more powerful People's Republic of Haven, and Commodore Honor Harrington has been in the forefront of that war. But now Honor has fallen, captured by the Peep Navy, turned over to the forces of State Security - and executed on the interstellar network's nightly news. The Manticoran Alliance is stunned and infuriated by Honor's death and grimly resolved to avenge it. But its military is over-extended and the People's Republic is poised to take the offensive once more. The war is about to enter a phase of unprecedented ferocity, and the Alliance is on the short end of the stick. But even as powerful Peep fleets hurtle towards their objectives, neither they nor the Alliance are aware of events occurring on a distant, isolated, inescapable prison planet called Hell. For what no one knows, not even State Security, is that Honor Harrington is not dead. She and a handful of her people are trapped on Hell, and determined to disprove the Peep boast that no one can ever escape it. Honor Harrington is going home, and taking her people with her - even if she has to conquer Hell to do it.

A Note from Author David Weber
There's been some confusion—not to say, um, energetic debate, readers and fans being readers and fans—about the correct pronunciation of "Manticoran." The truth, alas, is that a stitch was dropped. An error occurred. A mistake was made… and it wasn't Audible's fault. It was mine. Before Audible recorded the very first Honor Harrington book, narrator Allyson Johnson and I not only corresponded by e-mail but actually spoke to one another by phone. She wanted to make absolutely certain she had the correct pronunciations for names, places, star nations, etc., and I tried to make certain all of her questions were answered. And so they were. Unfortunately, at some point in the process, I replied to one of her e-mails by telling her that "Man-ti-core-ahn" was pronounced "Man-tik-er-ahn." Exactly how this happened is more than I can say at this point, except to blushingly disclose that the original e-mail remains intact, confirming to all the world that it was, indeed, my fault. I can ascribe it only to a temporary mental hiccup on my part and crave your forgiveness. If, however, you must blame someone for the mix-up, that someone should be me and not Audible, who have done everything they could to get it right.

Listen to another Honor Harrington adventure.

What the Critics Say

"[Echoes of Honor] produces its usual quota of high drama, political intrigue, and military adventure set in a richly detailed far future. This example of space opera at its very best belongs in most sf collections." (Library Journal)
"It is impossible not to be entertained, delighted, even enthralled by this splendid piece of storytelling." (Booklist)

    "Echoes of Honor"

    I am enjoying this series can hardly stand to put the story down. Echoes of Honor kept me holding on by my finger tips as she takes two years to escape the prison island. Her leadership ability bringing all the various people that have been in prison from various planets was interesting to watch. The battle scenes were great. Honor is beginning to remind me of Admiral H. Nelson of the British Navy. First the lost of an eye, now an arm what next? Allyson Johnson does a great job reading the series. She is Honor to me now. Can not wait to start the next book in the series.

    "Probably the best or top 3 of series"

    The Harrington series are great except sometimes they drag on a little for me because the narrator is not the best, I've grown to know her as the voice of Honor but she is not one of my favorite female narrators. This book has action of all forms, like a space seal its on land, sea, & air/space... If you have read the prince Roger series, I think that is the best series by this Weber & just like with this series there are suppose to be more to come.

    This particular book is such a great shot in the mouth to all the different antagonist's Honor has, & there are many, she is assumed dead which is not a spoiler obviously but the way she ultimately gets back home & the manner she does it can only bring a smile to your face. With many of her books there are at least a few sections I speed up a bit because frankly, its a bit slow.... but this book is one crazy ride & I did not skip anything, I replayed certain parts because of the entertainment the author paints with characters & situations that are solved, or terminated.... with Extreme Prejudice! Great read, highly recommend this book. You should read at least the last 2 books before this one but if you read this for the first time you would not be too confused, Weber rarely lets down

    "Honor Harrington Universe Book 11"

    The whole Star Alliance Mourns for Honor Harrington
    Manticarans Swore to Execute all State Security (SS)
    Grayson's Swore Blood Vengeance "For Lady Harrington and NO MERCY"!!!!!!
    The war continues.

    Meanwhile on hell nothing ever will be the same.
    The point of any prison is to contain maximum number of prisoners with the least number of guards.
    This means that prisoners always outnumber guards!!!!
    Try to Imagine Honor's thoughts on this topic.


    PS
    IMHO one of the best books in the series.

    NEXT BOOK IS " Ashes of Victory "

    "A solid addition to the series"

    If you are looking at this review, you like the series. David Weber does things a bit different in having large chucks dedicated to particular actions around the universe. The entire book is dedicated to the two years it takes for Honor to get back home. I liked it.

    "Very glad to have read this book."

    It was a very fulfilling story. A difficult challenge with an amazing mix of camaraderie. I wish more of these lessons would be sent to others in real life.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Go Honor!!"

    Okay, I guess you have to suspend a lot of disbelief, Honor gets really lucky and everything just happens to go her way.

    Still has a Harrington fan I enjoyed this book quite a bit. The action scenes were fun, and the character building for her mother and father and others was nice to have.
