War of Honor: Honor Harrington, Book 10

No one wanted another war. Thomas Theisman didn't. Not after risking his life to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety's reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution. Baron High Ridge didn't. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and his government could continue to milk all those "hostilities only" tax measures for their own partisan projects.

Publisher's Summary

No one wanted another war.

Thomas Theisman didn't. Not after risking his life to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety's reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution.

Baron High Ridge didn't. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and his government could continue to milk all those "hostilities only" tax measures for their own partisan projects.

His Imperial Majesty Gustav didn't. Now that the fighting between the Star Kingdom and the Havenites had ended, the Andermani Emperor had his own plans for Silesia.

Protector Benjamin didn't. His people had made too deep a commitment to the Manticoran Alliance to risk seeing it all thrown away.

And Honor Harrington certainly didn't. The Salamander knew too much about how much war cost.

Unfortunately, what they wanted didn't matter....

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

"With War of Honor coming in at over 800 pages, Weber has room to expand subplots and secondary characters and bring to the reader a feeling of depth and completeness seldom seen in science fiction novels. Favorite characters from past stories return, many of them growing in stature from unimportant secondary characters to major players in the 'Honorverse.' Weber serves up trouble in Silesia, the excitement of a new wormhole junction, scheming in Manticorian politics, strange events deep in Peep territory, and plenty of exploding spaceships - and, as publisher Jim Baen says, "We like exploding spaceships."

    "I really enjoy this series!"
    Would you listen to War of Honor again? Why?

    Yes, right before the newest book comes out I like to listen to the series again.


    What other book might you compare War of Honor to and why?

    I really couldn't say what book, but it reminds me of Elizabeth Moon's "Vatta's War" series. Both strong female leads, saving the galaxy by just doing what needs to be done.


    Have you listened to any of Allyson Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listen to her performances in this series and have enjoyed them all. And I really like the fact that the author took the blame for the mispronunciation of "Man-tik-er-ahn."


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Greed, Betrayal, Anger...War!

    Brit Abroad. Nearly six hundred Audible books heard, many more than once. Yes I'm hooked.

    Story
    "A necessary but painful listen"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is by far the worst of the HH series (so far), because it spends almost the entire book building up the political background to a resumption of war and another change of government. It's all talk about doing things, with very little actually being done by anybody.

    I felt I needed to stick it out as there IS some important story arc in there, but it drags horribly. The essential story could have been written with a quarter of the words and a lot less filler.

    Hopefully the next one gets us back on track.


    Has War of Honor turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, since this is clearly an aberration from an excellent author.


    Have you listened to any of Allyson Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Allyson puts a lot of effort into putting some emotion into an empty story, but she's pushing a rock up a hill.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I can't say I was disappointed, since other reviews had warned me this was going to be a tough job of work to get through.
