Publisher's Summary

The Star Kingdom has a new generation of officers! And this elite group hand-picked and trained by Honor Harrington herself is going to be needed immediately, as their first assignment turns out to be more dangerous than anyone expected.

What was supposed to be a quiet outpost, far from the blazing conflict between the Star Kingdom of Manticore and the People's Republic of Haven has actually been targeted by an unholy alliance between the slaveholders of Manpower, the rival star kingdoms of Mesa and Monica, and the bureaucrats of the Solarian League.

The alliance stands to benefit if the Havenites defeat Manticore, and are preparing for a surprise attack from the rear to divide Manticore's forces, which are already strained nearly to their limits. With their captain, the young Manticoran officers will risk their careers, if not their lives, on an unauthorized mission to expose and counter the threat to their Star Kingdom. Follow their journey as they show what they're made of.

New York Times best-selling author David Weber begins a new series that will be a must-buy for the hundreds of thousands of Honor Harrington fans.

    "Ouch!"

    I love the Honor Harrington series, and I downloaded this book thinking I would love it too.. I just can't stand the reading of it... Jay Synder's female voices drove me crazy... In the Harrington series Allyson Johnson read the series, and although I had to get use to her male voices, it was do able I could listen to the whole book. I'll try to listen to it again sometime down the road...

    "not so great"

    This is the only Audible book I have been disappointed with. This book isn't read by Jay Snyder, as advertised, it's read by Kevin Someone, whose voice I find much too affected-- it is too enunciated, careful, and dramatic, and doesn't seem natural. He sounds like he's reading for a car commercial. The women's voices are in cheesy falsetto.

    His voice is so distracting from the story that I couldn't finish more than 45 minutes of the book. I have never read any Honor Harrington books before and so can't comment on the plotline, but the style of reading never let me escape into the story. In my opinion, a wasted credit!

    "Great Story, performance only lacking in one area."

    The story is solid. The performance is solid except in one regard. Female voices seem to a difficulty for Mr. Snyder. None of the female voices were good. He needs to work on that. On the plus side, he did a very good job on all the diferent accents. Over all, I would recommend him in the future.

    "Horrible narrator"

    David Weber has many female characters in his books, but Jay Snyder makes them all sound like Monty Python characters.

    "Inconsistent author ruins it"

    Great series, but I've associated the characters with the voices Allyson has given them. The shift to a male voice imitating Honor was just too harsh. I couldn't get two hours in, no matter how I tried.

    "Great Honorverse story. Narrator not as good."

    The narrator takes some getting used to. His handling women characters is hard to listen to.

    "The Tradition Lives"

    This isn't just great military SciFi, it is great military SciFi that has the weight of tradition and woven into its woof and weave. After reading this one can only say that the tradition lives.

    "i couldnt finish and I really want to"

    I was used to listening to Ms. Johnson doing Honor stories. this narrator ruined for me the first time he did a female voice. I never got passed the first few minuets. I would gladly buy this title again if you got Ms. Johnson to read it.
