Publisher's Summary

Honor Harrington has survived ship-to-ship combat, assassins, political vendettas, and duels. But this time, Honor and her crew, ambushed and captured, are aboard an enemy ship, bound for a prison planet aptly named "Hell" - and her scheduled execution.

Yet the one lesson Honor has never learned is how to give up. She and her people are going home - even if it means conquering hell to get there!

A Note from Author David Weber
There's been some confusion—not to say, um, energetic debate, readers and fans being readers and fans—about the correct pronunciation of "Manticoran." The truth, alas, is that a stitch was dropped. An error occurred. A mistake was made… and it wasn't Audible's fault. It was mine. Before Audible recorded the very first Honor Harrington book, narrator Allyson Johnson and I not only corresponded by e-mail but actually spoke to one another by phone. She wanted to make absolutely certain she had the correct pronunciations for names, places, star nations, etc., and I tried to make certain all of her questions were answered. And so they were. Unfortunately, at some point in the process, I replied to one of her e-mails by telling her that "Man-ti-core-ahn" was pronounced "Man-tik-er-ahn." Exactly how this happened is more than I can say at this point, except to blushingly disclose that the original e-mail remains intact, confirming to all the world that it was, indeed, my fault. I can ascribe it only to a temporary mental hiccup on my part and crave your forgiveness. If, however, you must blame someone for the mix-up, that someone should be me and not Audible, who have done everything they could to get it right.

Listen to another Honor Harrington adventure.

    "A great series but some flaws"

    I really do enjoy the HH series. I have read them all in paperback and am now re-enjoying them in the excellent rendition of these audio books. I have only one real negative criticism - a criticism that seems to be exacerbated by the audio versions. This concerns the plot devices that Mr Weber uses to ensure that Manitcorian ships lose battles. He will know, as a student of Hornblower, that it was usual in the British Navy, to meet the dawn at action stations. It seems this particular approach has not translated to the Manticorian Navy. I am just listening to the chapter that Prince Adrian translates back into N space in the Adler system. Surely, any Commodore facing jumping into, an even considered friendly system, would be at Battle Stations. ALso the continued apparent uncetainty about various inconsistencies seems to me to be manufactured. When reading one can skip these bits that annoy - it is much more difficult to take in the audio books. The continued delay is, of course, used to increase tension but, in truth, in a war situation, it seems contrived. The whole situation in Adler is a manifestation of previous situations.
    Having said this, the books are still excellent and I enjoy every one. I would recommend the series.

    In enemy hands, at some point it must happen.
    There is always a moment when your luck runs out, and you have to survive on your own, but sometimes you know that you have no chance and the best you can hope for is to take as many of them with you as you can.

    Fortuna shifted her attention and now PRH has her support. :(
    The center of gravity and technological superiority changed.

    I never expected such actions from

    "Bridge between books"

    I'm a big Harrington fan. However, this book was probably my least favorite. It's a very good book, it explores some of the motivations behind some of the main characters.

    Mostly though this book seems to be a link between a few of the other books. I think much of the story could have been shortened and included in the next book.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Get rid of the first half of the book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Weber again?

    Sure.


    Did Allyson Johnson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The first HALF of this story was complete fluff. Only one important point was made, besides that, it can be summarized in two sentences, but I won't spoil it for you, please, feel my pain.

    I've listened to all the series up to this one...and wasn't sure how this one would play out. I won't spoil this for anyone because this one played with my emotions.... all I can say is that this (book) Episode is Awesome.

    "Honor at her worst and best."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I loved having someone read this story to me.
    My only complaint is a woman trying to imitate a man's voice is usually disappointing.And the same goes for the reverse.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Honor


    Which character – as performed by Allyson Johnson – was your favorite?

    Honor


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Honor sends Nimitz flying toward Cordelia Ransom,,I always hope he'll reach her in time to do some damage.


    Any additional comments?

    No.

    "I give up"

    Sorry but the series is pretty good but I kept trying to get used to the narrator but finally, I gave up. That I made it this far- through 7 books- is perhaps a testament to the storyline but I have never before so hated a narrator than this woman. People pay their money to be entertained, not distracted. She sounds as if she's reading a news story and she never seems to care about that which she is reading. I've been an Audible member for over 10 years and have listened to hundreds of books but this is the first time I've been so nauseated by a reader. I've heard other books by her and she was fine, but in this series actually makes me angry. lol.

    "Too long, but good overall"

    I really enjoy this series, and Allyson Johnson does a great job narrating. I have to say that this book is way too long. The first 8 or so chapters probably could have been reduced to about 2. Sometimes, while listening, there would be so much internal dialog that I'd forget what was happening. The ending was good and I'm going to start the next book in the series.
