A brilliant start to a brilliant series. Honor Harrington is a character who inspires admiration and affection as does her empathic companion, the treecat, Nimitz. Tight science for the technophiles, plenty of action for adventure buffs, complex and multilayered background world promising a rich environment for future development...
I am addicted to this series and its spinoffs... 5 stars from me...

This book is an enjoyable read and I am looking forward to reading the second in the Honor series. This is written in the same vein as Elizabeth Moon's and Lois McMaster Bujold's novels.

One of my favorite Honor books as she goes up against the powerful elite and proves her reliability and leads her crew with dedication to serve with integrity.

"Having made him look the fool, she's been exiled to Basilisk Station in disgrace and set up for ruin by a superior who hates her. Her demoralized crew blames her for their ship's humiliating posting to an out-of-the-way picket station. The aborigines of the system's only habitable planet are smoking homicide-inducing hallucinogens.
Parliament isn't sure it wants to keep the place; the major local industry is smuggling; the merchant cartels want her head; the star-conquering, so-called 'Republic' of Haven is Up To Something; and Honor Harrington has a single, over-age light cruiser with an armament that doesn't work to police the entire system.
But the people out to get her have made one mistake. They've made her mad.

This is a truly wonderful book, and a terrific main character - a woman in space who manages to just be a great character! I've read all of these, and love them...
