This episode has a lot of overlap with AT ALL COSTS. It reprises the battle that has Michelle Henke captured. It expands on her conversation with President Pritchart that leads to a proposed peace conference. It also talks about the various assassinations that derail that conference.

This episode provides the viewpoint of the Mesan Alliance - a secret organization with galactic ambitions. Manpower, Inc., Manticore's long-time enemy, is just one branch of the Mesan Alliance.

Most of the action takes place in the Talbot Quadrant where Henke has been sent in command of a military force to help protect the Quadrant. The Mesan Alliance is continuing to foment situations which will lead to Manticore fighting a war on two fronts - against Haven and against the Solarian League. The Solarian League is immense and they can't believe that any neobarb could pose any threat to it. Unfortunately, they are quite mistaken. Their supposed superiority has led them to skimp on both renovation and refit and the research to keep improving their military hardware that Manticore and Haven had to so since they have been at war for a number of years.

When the Sollies sent a particularly arrogant admiral in the person of Admiral Bing to the quadrant, an incident that would likely lead to war is almost inevitable. And Manpower's agents are right there stoking the fires.

This was another entertaining and exciting episode in this space opera. ( )

This was another excellent book. There isn't as much in the way of military science fiction, but there is a good amount of political intrigue. I particularly enjoyed Mike Henke's role in this book and hope to see more of it.

I strongly suggest that At All Costs be read prior to this book. There is a huge amount of overlap in the books. Some may see that as a problem, but I enjoyed the different viewpoints.

Recommended for people who have read the other Honor Harrington books and still enjoy the books later in the series. ( )

This is an excellent story based upon the events in other books within the Honorverse. In particular the book Shadow of Saganami. Mike Henke’s role is expanded while the events in the Talbott Cluster. Watching the changes taking place within the Cluster was really interesting. Well worth reading. I'm looking forward to reading the next stories from that region. ( )

I'm a longtime Honor Harrington fan and even a fan of her sub-series', so it pains me to give one of her books a rating that is below a four. Normally I give Honor books five stars. But the reviewers are right about this book. Weber ruined it with talking, talking, talking. Holy crap, I know he's wordy and I actually normally don't mind, unlike many people. I know that politics play a big role in this series and it's important to lay the groundwork and see how things transpire. I actually like it. I like the intrigue. But crap, this was just meeting after meeting, meetings to hold meetings, chapter after chapter of meetings. Geez, that's practically all the damn book was! Virtually everyone knows Weber is the best military sci fi writer out there and can write a battle scene like no other. That's really why everyone reads his books. He *should* know that, asshole! So, how many battles were there in this book? One could say one. One might even say two, though they'd be wrong. In one scene, a Solarian fleet fires on three Manticorian ships, destroying them unprovoked, but even then, we don't really see it. So that doesn't count. And in the "battle," Manticore destroys exactly ONE Solarian ship. Wow! Exciting. Remember when Haven and Manticore used to fight those gigantic battles? Remember the Battle of Manticore? When some 2,000,000 people died? Seems a thing of the distant past. Maybe Weber has forgotten how to write battle scenes. It'd be a pity. Cause then I'd stop reading him. This is a near-1200 page book of fucking meetings, dialogue, monologue, plotting, spying, conjecture, crap, crap, and more crap with people from every star system, kingdom, and corporation (Mesa) pondering what every other entity in the universe has been, is, and will be doing and it's damned annoying as hell. In fact, it's a waste of time because as Weber writes in his author's preface, which I've never seen him do, some 300 pages or so are simply cut and pastes from other Honor books. We've already read this stuff. He's just trying to "give us a different point of view." By cutting and pasting? Seriously? How exactly? This is the first Honor book I've been truly disappointed in, I believe. There have been a couple that haven't been as good as the others, but this is the first that is truly sub-par, a lazy, pathetic effort on the author's part and here's hoping this is the only such effort on his part. Here's hoping he returns to his previous standard of excellence in future Honor works. Cause this is a great series and one he needs to keep writing for the tens of millions of fans out there that love this character and series. Two stars. Not recommended. ( )
