Summary:

NO ONE WANTED ANOTHER WAR
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....

    Weber continues to craft his Honorverse his way. He fills it with great definitions and descriptions of political systems as well as histories and myths and also battles. The battles however aren't as important as the general description of the human element in its many different worlds and how they interact and how they succeed or fail. For anyone who likes to get the whole story David Weber is the author for them.

    I have read this entire series numerous times. It has been one of my favorite science fiction series for years. You SERIOUSLY need to aquire the rest of these books here. It would be an instant sell for me, however I will not buy this until I can get the rest of the books as well. The low narrator rating is because, as I said above, I haven't listened to it yet and won't tease myself with it until the others are available.

    Too Bad that the other books in this series are not available. as it would be interesting to hear Weber's move to be the latest Forrester.

  • John Lieurance

    This is a serious DUDE. I never thought I would read a novel that contains the word "war" in the title without presenting a war within its text. The novel covered all of the nitty gritty details of politics that surrond a war and spent little to no time presenting the war scenes. The only thing that kept my focus through this novel was Barbara Rosenblat's EXCELLENT READING / INFLECTION OF VOICES. Barbara is simply the best I've heard to date, its a shame the material she was reading wasn't worth the paper it was printed on.
