War of Honor (Honor Harrington Series) ebook

by Allyson Johnson,David Weber


Even with the series in-hand, I am re-purchasing the series on Kindle, which I hope is a very small way of saying thank you for an incredible amount of entertainment, wonder and satisfaction.

David Weber (Author), Allyson Johnson (Reader). Book 12 of 14 in the Honor Harrington Series. There is on awesome piece where David Weber focuses on Hamish as he observes Honor for the first time ever he gets to see the Salamander. It leaves him both chilled and in awe but you have to read it. I'd worry about it being a spoiler but its the inside page blurb piece in my book. We get to see Michelle Henke in action again and she is almost a good at this stuff as Honor, but she admittedly doesn't have the cool detachment that is evident in the Salamander.

NO ONE WANTED ANOTHER WAR Thomas Theisman didn't  . A person that is used to David Weber and his Honor Harrington series has to slog through about two hundred pages of stuff before things start looking up. One begins to wonder if it is a matter of having so many successes already that it seems important to beat a dead horse. The oddest part of all of that is that much of what is in those pages might be there as a sort of War of Honor (Honor Harrington by David Weber. The two times that I have read this I think I came up with the same problem.

Thomas Theisman didn't. After risking his life and a fresh round of civil war to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety's reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution, an interstellar war was the last thing he wanted.


Baron High Ridge didn't. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and as long as he could spin out negotiations on the formal treaty of peace, his government could continue to milk all those "hostilities only" tax measures for their own partisan projects.


His Imperial Majesty Gustav didn't. 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 could achieve them without a war of his own.


Protector Benjamin didn't. His people had made too deep a commitment to the Manticoran Alliance, in blood as well as treasure, for him to want to risk seeing it all thrown away.


And Honor Harrington certainly didn't. The "Salamander" had seen the inside of too many furnaces already, knew too much about how much war cost.


Unfortunately, what they wanted didn't matter….

Even though this Honor Harrington book has a 4.09 rating on a 5.0 scale on one site, it seemed that all I saw there were one and two star reviews. People HATED this book! They thought there was too much politics and not enough action. Well, I completely disagree and I loved this book. Yes, there is a heck of a lot of politics, but it’s all completely critical to understanding the buildup to the beginning of the new war between Haven and Manticore. Without seeing the politics and the behind the scenes dialogues and scenarios, we’d have no idea why hostilities have resumed. It’s critical to the book and the series. I suppose Weber probably does go overboard on the amount of politics he shoves into this book. He has a tendency to do that in his books. But it’s still critical to the book. In fact, I wish we had seen more of Grayson’s politics in action, personally. That was probably pretty critical too, but Weber largely skipped over that.

In this book, the Opposition government, led by Baron High Ridge, has downsized Manticore’s navy by an extreme amount, because of sheer arrogance and stupidity. Meanwhile, in the four years of negotiations, during which time Haven has actually tried to get a peace plan in place and High Ridge won’t negotiate cause he’s a greedy jerk, Haven’s been rebuilding its navy. Big time. At the same time, the Andermani Empire is trying to take Manticore on to take over Silesia and Honor is named task force commander of a largely obsolete group of ships sent to Silesia to watch over the Andermanis. Fortunately, Grayson sends a group of its state of the art superdreadnaughts to support her, so that’s awesome. Communications between Haven and Manticore disintegrate over time, in part because Haven’s Secretary of State is modifying them to tick off the High Ridge government. So finally, Haven attacks Manticore’s many systems it had taken from Haven in the previous war, as well as Honor, and they have great success, accept for Honor, of course.

One thing in this book which is odd and which is a carry over from the previous book is a budding romance between Honor and Earl White Haven, who is married. It doesn’t seem realistic, like her relationship with her dead lover, Paul. It seems forced, strained, unbelievable, and the government’s opposition releases news that they are lovers, when at the time they are not, and it damages their reputations. Yet they yearn for each other. And White Haven’s crippled wife, whom he loves, meets Honor and loves her immediately and approves of their romance like any wife would — in a stupid, unrealistic sci fi novel written by an arrogant, dumb man! This carries over to the following book too, which I’ve already started.

This isn’t the best Honor book I’ve read, but it’s quite complex and juggles many scenarios and issues simultaneously and does so rather well. Honor is still perfect, a bit too much, but one unique and cool thing about this book is Weber turns the tables on the systems. In this book, the Havenites are portrayed as the reasonable, peace loving, nice, realistic people while the Manticorian government is portrayed as arrogant, greedy, snide, deceitful liars, and much worse, so that you actually find yourself rooting for Haven for the first time ever. It’s brilliant! Good book. If you’re reading the series, strongly recommended.

"Fast-paced" is an adjective no discriminating reader could conceivably apply to this novel. The author does have a story to tell but he tells it in the most boring manner imaginable. Almost the entire book is a roundtable discussion whether there is a table in evidence or not. Every aspect of every element is examined in exhaustive detail. Then it is turned over, restated, and re-examined from a hypothetical standpoint.

To exacerbate the torrent of unnecessary verbiage, the author can hardly finish a sentence without interrupting it to insert distracting descriptions, ruminations, technical information etc. in the middle of it. Often times the insertion is extraneous to the subject of the sentence. A simple salutation may require several paragraphs before a discussion begins.

Many readers will probably find the political mechanizations dull in this 10th episode. I am not one of those. But a less verbose author could present the salient material with 90% fewer words without losing anything worth the reader's time.

I had high hopes for this series when I started, but the more books I got through, the more inner dialog the characters engage in. Character 1 can make a statement, and then Character 2 can literally go off on a 10+ kindle screen of thoughts and inner ramblings before responding, and by that time, I had to go back and read what the person was responding to.

I'll set it aside and maybe in a few months I will be able to start it over and get through it, as it is a good series (at least the first 6-7 books), but for now, I've moved on into books that move a bit faster with less character navel gazing.
