really liked it
Read in April, 2009 , read count: once was enough!

Change from my previous comment... "was a complex story". Until the last that is...

After 800+ pages of building tension towards either an accidental peace between the Star Kingdom of Manticore and the Republic of Haven, David Weber chose instead a rather rushed and anti-climatic final battle where destroyed 4 space fleets a couple of semi-major supporting characters and several million unknown crew members from both sides all within a less than tidy 40 page Ultimate Showdown.

Probably NOT my most favorite of the "Honorverse" but heck I rode it out through all the previous books to this (one assumes) the closing chapter for Honor Harrington.

A happily married threesome with 2 newborns all in the very same >900 page tome? Alexander-Harrington WAS NOT a hyphenated name I needed to read repeatedly for 300+ pages. How very steadholder of her?
