A year ago, Flynn Cormac and Jubilee Chase made the now infamous Avon Broadcast, calling on the galaxy to witness for their planet and protect them from destruction. Some say Flynn's a madman; others whisper about conspiracies. Nobody knows the truth. A year before that, Tarver Merendsen and Lilac LaRoux were rescued from a terrible shipwreck - now they live a public life in front of the cameras and a secret life away from the world's gaze.

I'm so incredibly sad that that this is the end of what has been an incredible journey. The stories have been so well crafted and the narrators couldn't have done a better job of breathing life into the wonderful personalities that are in such abundance throughout all of the Starbound books from start to finish. I am definitely going to be reading more books from both of these very talented authors.

This was a really surprisingly brilliant book. I never expected it to be this good with caracters that are fun and I've come to really care about. It's a shame that the rest of the books in this series for some reason are not available for sale in Australia. I hope that will change soon.

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing - not even a smear of blood - to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This book was perfect in every way and as much as I loved the TV series this book left the season 1 behind in a pile of forgettable dust. I can't wait to read book two in the series and I hope that the story writing in the TV series improves a bit more to the level of the books.

The Mesan Alignment: a centuries-old cabal that seeks to impose its vision of a society dominated by genetic rank onto the human race. Now the conspiracy stands exposed by spies Anton Zilwicki and Victor Cachat - one an agent of Honor Harrington’s Star Kingdom of Manticore, the other a Havenite operative. The outing of the Alignment has turned the galaxy’s political framework topsy-turvy. Old coalitions have disintegrated. New alliances have been born.

I have come to love the Crown of Slaves series of books more than any of the other amazing Honer Harrington stories. The sense of friendship and light hearted comradery between the main characters is an absolute joy. This series of books deals with some of the most abhorrent aspects of the slave trade and it does so with complete honesty but at the same time there is a thread of humor that always prevents the story from getting to heavy. I have now read all the Honer Harrington books in sequencel order from start to finish and this book has been the last one written by David Weber up to this point. I will truly have the longest and most anticipated of waits for the release of a new book in a very long time. Can't wait. Thanks for a truly amazing series of books David Weber.

This particular series if books I love in some ways just that little bit more than the other Honor Harrington books because of the thread of slap dash humor that doesn't take it's self to seriously all the time. Sad thing is I'm just that bit closer to the end of all the Honor Harrington books. What the heck do I move onto next that will even come close to how enjoyable this series of books have been.

What price victory? The war with the Republic of Haven has resumed . . . disastrously for the Star Kingdom of Manticore. Admiral Lady Dame Honor Harrington, Steadholder and Duchess Harrington, the single victorious Allied commander of the opening phase of the new war, has been recalled from the Sidemore System to command Eighth Fleet. Everyone knows Eighth Fleet is the Alliance's primary offensive command, which makes it the natural assignment for the woman the media calls "the Salamander."

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.

On the planet Tython, the ancient Je’daii order was founded. And at the feet of its wise Masters, Lanoree Brock learned the mysteries and methods of the Force - and found her calling as one of its most powerful disciples. But as strongly as the Force flowed within Lanoree and her parents, it remained absent in her brother, who grew to despise and shun the Je’daii, and whose training in its ancient ways ended in tragedy. Now, from her solitary life as a Ranger keeping order across the galaxy, Lanoree has been summoned by the Je’daii Council on a matter of utmost urgency.
