No one wanted another war.

Thomas Theisman didn’t. After risking his life and a civil war to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety’s reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven’s ancient Constitution, an interstellar war was the last thing he wanted.

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 as long as he could spin out negotiations on the formal treaty of peace, 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, and he was confident he could achieve them without a war of his own.

Protector Benjamin didn’t. His people had made too deep a commitment to the Manticoran Alliance, in blood as well as treasure, for him to want to risk seeing it all thrown away.

And Honor Harrington certainly didn’t. The “Salamander” had seen the inside of too many furnaces already, knew too much about how much war cost.

Unfortunately, what they wanted didn’t matter…

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 steve | 6/4/2016

    " I have read the hard copy of this book and did not realize when I bought audio that it was abridged. I regret that. The narrator is great but the story has been butchered by removing so much of it in the abridged version, I hope more of this series in a unabridged format will be added to the site soon, "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee | 2/19/2014

    " v9 of HH series. Overlong and too political, with far too much of the politics repeated unneccessarily. White hats all just a bit too pure while black hats are overly simplistically represented as regards actions and motives. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erik | 2/3/2014

    " Took too long to really get going and there were too many sub-plots/characters to keep track of. But 1/2 way through it did pick up pace and ended up being a decent Honor Harrington novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 M | 1/21/2014

    " A look at the politics of war in the Honorverse, this massive book feels more like a set-up for the one following it. Despite some unique intrigue over Honor's relationships and a quick outer space victory, the novel tends to drag out the uprisings and spend too much time exploring the inner workings of fictional government policies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/27/2013

    " I do enjoy these books! There's only one more left in this series, and I'm sad about that. A little post-series depression coming a little early. This book became more political than naval (although the spectacular battles did happen). I like political wrangling in novels. Rich does not. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bryan457 | 11/2/2013

    " Lots of politics! I hate politics! The government of Manticore becomes the evil system. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 9/22/2013

    " Action packed, especially if you like following shrewd political maneuvering. A must for the Honor Harrington fan; this series is worth the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 2/27/2013

    " Egomaniacs in the Haven and Manticore governments stumble their star nations back toward war. WOH is mostly political but heats up at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denis Barlow | 12/22/2012

    " Another great book in the Honor Harrington series, I think this was the best so far. Even though it was very long (36 hours of audio!) it kept my interest all the way through "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat | 7/27/2012

    " Lots and lots of details, very long but Honor and Hamish love story, I'm a little torn about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 7/17/2012

    " Uh, the review that's attached to this book is incorrect. There's not a war god to be found. Weird. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shen | 5/23/2012

    " this is where it started to go bad "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janne | 3/17/2011

    " Almost as good as the previous two books, but slower to start. It took over a third of the book until things really kicked off. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alicia | 3/15/2011

    " I really like this series but this particular book was a bit thinly plotted for my taste. I do think it needs to be read in order to enjoy the next book more but it feels like a bridge book to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bukminster | 3/6/2011

    " I'm a big fan of Weber's stories, and would have given this one 3 1/2 stars if I could. It didn't live up to the prior 2, but still an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachael | 1/28/2011

    " Character development is improving! The plot is still more interesting than the characters--and I'm enjoying it plenty--but I would like more multi-dimensional characters. Weber needs to take a chapter from McMaster Bujold. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Willy | 1/21/2011

    " This book took me a long time to read. I just quit smoking and it threw my whole routine all wonky. I'm interested and will read more Honor soon. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LaserWraith | 1/19/2011

    " Ok, but I wish Honor got at least one chance to use our new ship on less powerful ships. It gets boring when she keeps getting a new one, only to find that her opponents are always better too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray | 1/13/2011

    " I liked this. A little slower than the later novels but a good set up for character introduction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darrell | 8/17/2010

    " An excellent continuation of this series. Best space opera I've read, and the best science fiction I've read in a long time. "
