Mission of Honor
by David Weber
Publisher: Baen Books

The Star Kingdom of Manticore and the Republic of Haven have been enemies for Honor Harrington's entire life, and she has paid a price for the victories she's achieved in that conflict. And now the unstoppable juggernaut of the mighty Solarian League is on a collision course with Manticore. The millions who have already died may have been only a foretaste of the billions of casualties just over the horizon, and Honor sees it coming.

She's prepared to do anything, risk anything, to stop it, and she has a plan that may finally bring an end to the Havenite Wars and give even the Solarian League pause. But there are things not even Honor knows about. There are forces in play, hidden enemies in motion, all converging on the Star Kingdom of Manticore to crush the very life out of it, and Honor's worst nightmares fall short of the oncoming reality.

But Manticore's enemies may not have thought of everything after all. Because if everything Honor Harrington loves is going down to destruction, it won't be going alone.

A few discrepancies through me for a few here and there but on the whole the book was good. I am not a particular fan of cliff hangers. The repeating of information seems a bit redundant but then I understand that he's following through. The only problem I had was with the long lead up to battle scenes not the lack of them. I like know what the characters are thinking as well as the dialogue but wish there were more conversation.

OK for $6, but only because I've learned to ruthlessly scan thru section after section of boring discussions repeating things already known to the reader.

3. Joyce on 8/13/2010, said:

This was another good addition to the series. Yes, there are a few occasions where it plods along a touch and it does leave us in a cliffhanger of sorts in respect of the overall story arc, but I am not sure that could have been avoided even if a few scenes by minor characters had been cut. I understand the lament by others in respect of the lack of battle scenes, but an Admiral is hardly going to be hopping out for anything less then the whole show, and we just got that in the last book. Overall I was very satisfied, and gave it 4 stars.

Very enjoyable, the downside now is the wait for the next book.

Having read of Honor books, I found this one just as enjoyable as the previous. However these later books are different from the earlier installments, not better not worse just different. This book does manage to converge a couple of threads, which should help to focus the story, while other threads which were already there become more prominent. I’ll admit I had to adjust my view about the books of the last few installments. I have read that Mr. Weber is a fan R.A. Heinlein, and as such the phase “make it march” could certainly be added into the mix. Some of the descriptive does get a bit long winded, which is minor, that descriptive however is also repeated in some cases repeated in full. I much prefer it when he makes reference to the previously spelled out analysis and moves on, rather than when he repeats it in its entirety. To be fair however this doesn’t happen as much as it feels like. Quite often the second telling adds some new tidbit, in those cases the repeat is necessary.

It did well in avoiding Kurtzitis. My only real complaint is that this series in the Honorverse is supposed to be in Honor's POV, at least in the great majority of cases. You have two other series to provide complimentary viewpoints with.

7. Richard on 7/3/2010, said:

It felt like a lot of redundant repetition was used to fill the book out. This story reads more like the first half of a whole book and the cliff-hanger was Obvious. I was left very disappointed by this book. More so since I never would have expected it after reading all his other books. And now we need to wait another year or more to read the other half of what would have been an excellent read in a single book.

It ends the way I thought the previous book would end, but all the intervening story was a great read. I wonder what title The Salamander will end up earning from The Republic? Well, what ADDITIONAL title...

9. Shaun on 6/27/2010, said:

great read the cliff hanger at the end leaves me wanting more and more can't wait for the next installment. the end of the Solarian League is to be preordained as the corruption that has ruled for so long finally kills it

10. Daniel on 6/6/2010, said:

Great read! But as a cautionary tale, please David look at what has happened to the 1632 series by Flint. So much telling of the story from different eyes (and authors) that the main tale gets lost. I beg of you, tighten up the story threads and lose the retelling of the same event from three (or more angles). Now that has been said, I am most definitely looking forward to the next book!
