HONOR'S FINISHING WHAT SHE STARTED The Solarian League's navy counts its superdreadnoughts by the thousands. Not even its own government knows how enormous its economy truly is. And for hundreds of years, the League has borne the banner of human civilization, been the ideal to which humanity aspires in its diaspora across the galaxy. But the bureaucrats known as the "Mandarins," who rule today's League, are not the men and women who founded it so long ago. They are corrupt, venal, accountable to no one . . . and they've decided the upstart Star Kingdom of Manticore must be destroyed.Honor Harrington has worn the Star Kingdom's uniform for half a century and served her monarch and her people well. In the course of those years, the woman the newsies call the Salamander has grown from a tactically brilliant but politically nave junior officer to supreme fleet command and a seat on the highest military and political councils of the Grand Alliance. Very few people know war the way Honor Har...

Uncompromising Honor Reviews
I really enjoyed this. I loved how it wrapped up some story threads. I just don't want to give away any spoilers
There were some faults in the series from the beginning. Too many characters, a few pages of random information dumps here and there... But for all that, you could at least count on 200 pages of spaceship on spaceship violence that were almost impossible to put down. With each book in the series, the action diminishes and the bloat of characters, politics, technology and everything else takes up more and more space. I'm glad to know what happens as Honor's story seems to be wrapping up, but ther ...more
I am a big fan of the Honor Harrington Series. It was the first Sci-Fi series that I got hooked on. Over the years this series is what I compare all others against. I found that I liked military science fiction with a strong female leader. I was so excited that the next book of the series finally came out. My only complaint is that I had to wait five years for it.
The Manticore Star Kingdom is now at war with the Solarian League. The League is headquartered in Chicago on Earth and is a very old L ...more
After several rather lackluster books in the Honor Harrington series, I have to say that Weber seems to have his mojo back. I reckon this is his best book in a while. A solid 4 stars.
This seems to be the end of the Honor Harrington series. However, in the book's "Afterword" Weber strongly implies that Honor will make appearances in future books set in the Honorverse (but not as a main character commanding ships headed into battle hell). We shall see.
An unsatisfying conclusion with solid action (as always) despite its meandering.
A book by David Weber in the Honorverse that actually has Honor Harrington in it is always a treat. As usual, this also is an extremely long book which could easily have been edited down quite a bit. I read this as an eARC and it could be trimmed before publishing but it probably won't.
Manticore is reeling from an attack on their infrastructure by the Solarian Navy. The Mandarin's, the Solarian leaders based on old Earth have decided Manticore is a threat and are uninterested in any 'neobarb' ...more
HONOR HARRINGTON is one of my all-time favorite series but it's one of those which has suffered a bit of drift over the years. The best of the series was all about Honor versus impossible odds and heavily focused on her POV. Unfortunately, the past few books have gradually become heavily politicized stories about Character X talking with character Y about doing Z for three chapters then doing Z exactly like they talked about.
The fact the Solarian League is an incredible bunch of incompetents wh ...more
