** spoiler alert ** It took me awhile to get into this installment in the Honor Harrington series, but once I did, I really got into it.

The leaders of the Republic are, right now, the most interesting characters in the saga. While I don't understand all of Secretary of State's maneuvering, I do understand enough to know that it didn't turn out quite as he planned. I have really enjoyed Weber's development of the "enemy" as 3-dimensional people who could just as easily be the "good guys" in certain circumstances. It's probably too late for this situation to be untangled anyway.

The real villains are the Manticorans who were allied with Baron High Ridge. And it was satisfying, if somewhat fleeting, for them to get their due.

I was also glad to see the relationship between Manticore and the Andermani Empire get more play.

The relationship I didn't much enjoy reading about was the triangle between Honor, Hamish, and Emily. Just doesn't ring true for me.

Next installment coming up...
