Publisher's Summary

The Star Kingdom of Manticore and the Republic of Haven have been enemies for Honor Harrington's entire life, and she has paid a price for the victories she's achieved in that conflict. And now the unstoppable juggernaut of the mighty Solarian League is on a collision course with Manticore. The millions who have already died may have been only a foretaste of the billions of casualties just over the horizon, and Honor sees it coming.

She's prepared to do anything, risk anything, to stop it, and she has a plan that may finally bring an end to the Havenite Wars and give even the Solarian League pause. But there are things not even Honor knows about. There are forces in play, hidden enemies in motion, all converging on the Star Kingdom of Manticore to crush the very life out of it, and Honor's worst nightmares fall short of the oncoming reality. But Manticore's enemies may not have thought of everything after all. Because if everything Honor Harrington loves is going down to destruction, it won't be going alone.

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.

    "Great book and a good solid reading."

    I feel compelled to add a counter-review, I found nothing wrong at all with Allyson Johnson's reading and thoroughly enjoyed the book as I have all of the others in the series. The distinct voices and accents of the characters help to stage each scene correctly and when flipping between multiple characters from several star nations it really helps to be able to tell them apart by voice alone.

    "not the best in the series but still a great book"

    the person reading the book really struggles with accents.

    good setup for next book but a bit of a slog to get through. still worth it.

    "Great stuff"

    Great book though clearly in between even more important events. Only minor complaint is about the narrators accent selection at times but really that's not important.

    "Awful accents and characterisation"

    This was truly dreadful reading of an excellent book. It sounded like she was trying to copy Barbara Rosenblat's excellent dramatisation of War of Honor, but it fell way short of the mark, apart from the French Havenite accents. The attempt at 'British' Manticoran accents was atrocious. Stick to the flat delivery of all the other books you have read in this series please. I do hope that A Rising Thunder will NOT be read in this way. Frankly it spoiled the book for me. I struggled to listen to it.
