Mission of Honor - eARC
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.

i have read the comments on this work and am disappointed by what seems to be a basic lack of understanding of how a series evolves we have now been given a glimpse into the motivations of all the sides to the conflict that are involved in honnorverse some persons seem to just want fast non stop action others just want Honor's view and views Hamish, the Queen the Bureaucrats the run the League and the slavers of Messa as unnecessary. They limit the character the profess to love to a one dimensional cutout that has no depth. Had the author just told us that pavel attempted to rape Honor when the were at the island together and her reaction to it then an important element would have been missin with out pavels motivations his reasons behind all what he and his family has done to honor to engender the hate that honor had for him. Also with the messa's motivations why would be the biggest question why include an entity that both the Star kingdom\Empire and the Republic of haven (in all its incarnations) have as an enemy in common if you don't show that that enemy is real ad is taking steps to defeat them. is manpower just there to be beaten up on. We must get their perspective to truly understand some of the actions they have taken. in my view to have a well rounded main character you must have well rounded supporting characters so you can understand their impacts on the protagonist. the only reason that i did not rate it a 5 is that i was wanting more

Some have noted long windedness and others have note a plethora of characters. It has all that and I'm still on the edge of my seat. I read Storm of the Shadows just before this didn't realize it was canon to the current story arc. Now I have to wait for the next book...

When the goods bit happened it was great, but as soon as the descriptions of how many missiles was controlled by x amount of bala, bla bla, I skipped a quite a few paragraphs. I skipped the boring meeting between Sollies, Mesas etc. I thinks very few readers, like me are interested to know exactly was is going on in the Mesan's, Sollies heads. I hope that DW does away with the boring meetings and in the overkill on the armament. It is enough to say the Manties hardware is better. The ending is a dog, and I can't wait for the next book.

Loved it! A couple of small errors are in the text of course (only to be expected from an early unproofed texr) but it was well worth the money.

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!

Wow! I wouldn't recommend that you start reading this series with this book. However, if you have ever read any of this series, this book is amazing! It ties up the loose ends and sets up a truly titanic struggle which will probably be good for at least 5 to 10 more fabulous books! A+

7. Markus on 4/9/2010, said:

What I really like about the Harrington books is the absolutely believable universe David Weber has created. Even though I think "On Basilisk Station" and "The Honor of the Queen" were the best books of the series and even though I prefer the "frigate action" as someone here has said before, it wouldn't be logical for Harrington to get involved with said action. This again contributes to the believable universe, and I'm not really surprised by my own discovery that I don't enjoy shows like Star Wars or Star Trek anymore because of their logical flaws. Because of Weber's consequent development of the Honorverse, "Mission of Honor" is lacking in focused storytelling. There are myriads of characters, and it is difficult not to get lost in the book. However, Weber nicely (and finally!) connects most of the dangling storythreads, and I'm absolutely looking forward to the next part of the series. I can't agree with the statement that much of this book is storytelling from different perspectives, even if this was the flaw of some of "Mission of Honor"'s predecessors. Overall I can definitely recommend reading this book to every fan of the Honorverse, even though I think a newcomer to the Honorverse should definitely start with a much earlier novel to grasp the whole story.

Another solid addition to the Honorverse that can either stand on it's own or as part of the series.

As I understand it, the original plan was for Honor to die and the focus of the stories to move onto her children. However, with the world (+ David!) having become fond of Honor, it was necessary to rework the overall plotline and introduce some new elements. As a result, the last few books have often felt somewhat contrived - and there's been a certain element of "Jordan-esque" branching, with yet more characters and viewpoints being added into an already epic tale. However, Mission of Honor appears to be the capstone of these refocusing efforts: it ties up a lot of the threads and sets the scene for the next stage - complete with a major cliffhanger. Old enemies have made their peace, new enemies have declared their intentions and the Kingdom is effectively back where it started, with some technological advantages but severe resource limitations. Things are looking up for the reader - so long as this new focus isn't lost!
