The second of the Honor Harrington books, which is better contrived than the first. Honor's world starts to open up and (having read the rest of the series) Weber starts laying the groundwork for later revelations and plot lines. The gender discrimination story line is a little overdone for my taste, but knowing that it is important and will be handled more subtly in future installments does make it worth pushing through. Weber's skill at showing the many shades of a single issue (in this case, religion) is already at work here.

Overall, it's a fun space opera book, not to be missed by fans of the series or of military sci-fi & space opera.
