Uncompromising Honor, number 14 in the mainline thread of the Honorverse, is due to be published October 2, 2018. However, the eARC is available now from Baen.com. It's a long one, 768 pages, and is getting mixed reviews on the Baen site. It definitely follows Honor, and the conflict with the Solarian League. I'm reading it now, and will post updates.

Leonie (leonierogers) | 340 comments I really enjoyed the early Honor novels. The last one I started was Mission of Honor, but I got bogged down and didn't finish. I'll be interested to hear what you think, Betsy!

I'm about half way through it. Lots of snarky Honor conversations, several really exciting battles, not too much politics, so far no tech digressions. I'm really enjoying it.

Very good to hear. I’ll wait for the official edition.

I am awaiting it. Finally one about Honor.

Well, that does sound good. Really glad to hear that it sounds as though the info dumps have been reduced!

The info dumps have been reduced, but after the mid point the number of political "conversations" have increased. I have a pretty high tolerance for them, but I must admit, I've done a little bit of skimming. On the other hand, it's pretty clear it's building to some pretty major action.

Tony | 15 comments I'm a ways away from reading this one. The next one for me is Mission of Honor (HH #12). It sounds like this book veers away from some of the problems I've had with the other HH books (repetitive discussions regarding the tech and tactical situations, reduced focus of characters).

For those that are much farther along than I am in the series do you find that this starts getting better after Mission of Honor or is Uncompromising Honor the first book that really starts going back to the pace of the earlier books in the series?

I may not be the best person to respond. I enjoyed both Mission of Honor and A Rising Thunder, though not as much as the early books in the series. You might want to check out my review for A Rising Thunder. I do think they're both important for the overall plot continuity, but you could probably skip some large parts of both. As for Uncompromising Honor, so far it looks like it may be somewhat more action and character focused, but not like the very early installments.

Thank you. I'll get to these later Harrington books eventually. :)

Well, I finished it. At 4 a.m. this morning. The last third of the book was very suspenseful, exciting, maddening. I do recommend reading it, but it's long, and the middle section was a little slow.

Here is my review.
