David Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife and children.

Read an Excerpt

It was very quiet in the huge, dimly lit room. The Advanced Tactical Training Course's main lecture hall boasted the second largest holo tank of the Royal Manticoran Navy, and the rising, amphitheaterlike seats facing the tank seated over two thousand at full capacity. At the moment, thirty-seven people, headed by Admiral Sir Lucien Cortez, Fifth Space Lord, and Vice Admiral The Honorable Alyce Cordwainer, the RMN's Judge Advocate General, sat in those seats and watched the tank intently.

The image of a tall, strong-faced woman floated in it, sitting erect and square-shouldered yet calmly in her chair, hands folded on the tabletop before her beside the white beret of a starship's commander. The golden planets of a senior-grade captain gleamed on the collar of her space-black tunic, and she wore no expression at all as she faced the HD camera squarely.

"And what, precisely, happened after the task group's final course change, Captain Harrington?" The voice came from off-camera, and a blood-red caption in the holo tank identified the speaker as Commodore Vincent Capra, head of the board of inquiry whose recommendations had brought the audience here.

"The enemy altered course to pursue us, Sir." Captain Harrington's soprano was surprisingly soft and sweet for a woman of her size, but it was also cool, almost remote.

"And the tactical situation?" Capra pressed.

"The task group was under heavy fire, Sir," she replied in that same, impersonal tone. "I believe Circe was destroyed almost as we altered course. Agamemnon was destroyed approximately five minutes after course change, and several of our other units suffered both damage and casualties."

"Would you call the situationdesperate, Captain?"

"I would call it ... serious, Sir," Harrington responded after a moment's thought.

There was a brief silence, as if her invisible questioner were waiting for her to say something more. But her detached calm was impregnable, and Commodore Capra sighed.

Fans of History will also enjoy the nods to the French Revolution found in this series. Some fun "Easter Eggs" scattered through the books. Some fairly easy to spot: Rob S. Pierre, for instance. Others are more subtle such as Honor reading one of the Horatio Hornblower books, a Gift from a friend who thought she'd enjoy a bit of "Ancient History". Well thought out and generally gripping stories.

This is the fourth in a series of books with Honor Harrington that shows just how clever some science fiction writers can be. The book deals with great drama and complete character development. Unlike the heavy handedness and 2 D Star Wars characters, this book delivers the suspense of a mystery novel within the realm of an advanced military culture. A great book worth the reading, it has been re-isssued for that exact purpose.

The 1st book did take me a little while to get into, but once you get to know the character & her struggles, it is harder & harder to put these books down!
