I have the whole series, I love Honor. She's a strong woman in authority who has a strong sense of responsibility and justice. I love how the characters grow as the series progresses.
Honor defends a peaceful world from a world of religious fanatics.
This was as good or better than than the 1st one. Female Hornblower in space.
I enjoyed this book. I think it was better than the first one "On Basilik Station" which I also enjoyed reading. I found Honor's character to be more devoloped. Still has lots of action as in the battle scenes fought in space. I look forward to reading the other novels in the Honor Harrington series.
Honor Harrington, now officially a hero, is sent along with a diplomatic mission to the planet Grayson for a treaty. Once again Honor ends up in a pitched battle against a superior foe, during which her only fault is to blame herself for not doing more. I thought the patriarchal leaders on Grayson came around awfully quickly to the "we love Honor" camp...but this isn't a series with a lot of nuance. Great battle scenes and once again pages of tactical and weaponry info.
