No one wanted another war. 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 and his people could achieve them without a war of their own

Review
  • /*Starred Review*/ The complexity of the latest and longest but not the most action-packed Honor Harrington yarn indicates that Weber is developing the characterizations and setting the political and strategic framework for grander action than ever to come. Manticore's Queen Elizabeth III is implacably determined to give the Republic of Haven not a single territorial concession, but the Havenites are getting their political and military act together such that they feel safe resenting Manticoran empire building. Meanwhile, the Andermani Empire is fishing in the troubled systems of the Silesian Confederacy and upgrading its navy, to the considerable dismay of Honor, whose own naval backing has been cut by an inept, penny-pinching ministry. Honor is also hopelessly in love with the earl of White Haven, and he with her. Out of respect for the earl's crippled wife, they refrain from acting on their love. That situation is at first apparently made worse when Samantha, the mate of Honor's lifelong-bonded treecat Nimitz, bonds with the earl! At least that matter is resolved more happily by the time full-scale war breaks out, and the reader wonders finally whether the climax and the conclusion of the entire Honor Harrington series are approaching, to be published, most appropriately, in October 2005, the bicentennial of the Battle of Trafalgar. (Reviewed September 1, 2002) -- Roland Green
  • After the fall of the People's Republic of Haven, the newly formed government of Haven attempts to sue for peace in its ongoing war with the Manticorean-led Star Kingdom. Called home from active duty to help maintain an uneasy peace on the diplomatic front, Lady Dame Honor Harrington finds herself confronting scandal and internal treachery as the political situation steadily moves closer to a resumption of hostilities. The tenth novel in Weber's popular Honor Harrington series, which also includes three short story collections, expands the political and military aspects of his dynastic space saga into new arenas as new threats cause a shift in alliances and sets the stage for future spacefaring adventures. Series fans will enjoy the further exploits of favorite characters, while aficionados of military sf should appreciate the faithful attention to military detail in the battle scenes. A solid choice for sf collections, particularly for libraries that own previous series titles. --Jackie Cassada (Reviewed October 15, 2002) (Library Journal, vol 127, issue 17, p97)
