This novel IMO is where Honor Harrington jumps the sharkHonor is captured by the Peeps who don t like her and xecute her Well xcept for the part where No never mind that would be spoilingThis also contains the very start of the Lord Nelson approved affair with a married woman r man Weber maintained he had to do it to be fair to Nelson in Space Many of his fans at the time replied No you don tThe first six novels are good space opera although the sixth Honor Among Enemies is a bit longer than it should have been No 7 isn t a lucky number The sheer weight of Lachlan's Protg (English Edition) exposition buries In Enemy Hands I read it when it first came out and wasn t impressed I recently tried re reading it and couldn t None of the subseuent main thread novels have been better than the first five A couple have been as good as the sixth This one isn t the worst but it s a clear plummet onto the downslopeMy onexception to the above generalization is the FlintWeber Crown of Slaves which Eric Flint manages to pull out of the morass of Weberian infodumps Just when Honor seemed to be back on track in the RMN resuming her illustrious career there the universe seems to turn against her Caught in a surprise ambush she manages to save the rest of her convoy but the ship she is on is capturedNow the Peeps have her and and their ueen of propaganda Cordelia Ransom has specific designs on Harrington s fate and those plans don t include longevity of lifeIn several of the xceptional books of this series the pace has gone from steady to urgent and then a climatic rush to the nd Here it is of a very long crash landing The pace is pretty uick to start with and then the initial military ngagements are xcellently written with a fast pace As Honor s circumstances spiral out of control Weber does an xceptional job switching viewpoints so the reader knows verything heshe needs to about what is going on does an Conflict in Blood exceptional job switching viewpoints so the reader knowsverything heshe needs to about what is going on he does not cross the line of coherency where the various viewpoints become confusing than intricateThis book delves ven deeply into Honor s character specifically how her imprisonment and treatment therein affects her psyche Her internal struggle is done pretty well though Weber might have overdone the climax of her internal battle against hopelessness Just a tad over the topI do highly recommend this book though if you ve never read any of the other Harrington novels they would provide a great foundation for understanding many of the characters and the political setting Harrington is maneuvering within I would also recommend getting "Your Hands On A Copy Of Echoes " hands on a copy of Echoes Honor which is the novel which follows this oneAll in all I would call this one of the better Harrington novels specially if. The Road to HellHonor Harrington's career has its ups and its downs She's survived ship to ship battles assassins political vendettas and duels She's been shot at shot down and just plain shot had starships blown out from under her and made personal The Crucified Ones: Calling Forth the End-Time Remnant enemies who will stop at nothing to ruin her and somehow she's survived it allBut this time she's really in troubleThe People's Republic of Haven has finally found an admiral who can win battles and Honor's orders take her straight into an ambush Outnumbered outgunned and unable to run she has just two options see the people under her command die in a hopeless futile battle or surrender them and herself to the PeepsThere can be only one choice and at least the People's Navy promises to treat their prisoners honorably But the Navy is overruled by the political authorities and Honor finds herself bound for a prison planet aptly named Hell and her scheduledxecutionPut into solitary confinement separated from her officers and her treecat Nimitz and subjected to sy. ,
review In Enemy Hands,
Itting in a chair and musing for a whole chapterDon t introduce so and so if so and so isn t going to do suat in the book Give them a few speaking lines but I don t want their life storyIt s just too long The Grace Hopper and the Invention of the Information Age (Lemelson Center Studies in Invention and Innovation series) ending is full of action and intense but it doesn t make up for before Honor s capture whereveryone is sitting around If it doesn t make any sense for the characters to be discussing the information than sitting in a room just limit these scenes and the amount of knowledge the reader is privy to There are some treecat scenes Samantha s clan basically invades Honor s home on Grayson Miranda is adopted by a cat I ve always liked the treecats so I consider their scenes as a fun diversion to the long talking scenesWhere the characters are at the Logic, Labels, And Flesh end set up the next book nicely unless it skipsverything Hoping these books shorten up and then they would be Dialogue: Relationships in Graphic Design enjoyable Not one of the best of this series It takesven longer than usual for anything to happen about 200 pages The situation that puts Honor in a position to be captured seems contrived as does the whole The Originality of the Avant-Garde and Other Modernist Myths escape scenarioI think Weber has introduced a Lady Barbara for his Horatio Honor has fallen in love with the Earl of White Haven I ve been careful to avoid spoilers on this series but if I had to guess things don t look good for White Haven s wife Jettison the debris clear the missle tubes abandon ship Whatever it takes to stop myyes from further bleeding This is a sad day I ve rated most of these books to this points with 4 stars with one of them good Modeling and Analysis of Communicating Systems enough toarn a coveted 5th star Most of them have infodumps and boring spells but this one has had nothing lse for the first "thirdToo many books out there I want to read so no point in continuing to torturing " many books out there I want to read so no point in continuing to torturing might pick it up again later but for now I m resigning my commission While not the best book in the series it certainly has its moments As usual the title is a spoiler but that s OK Unfortunately it gives Weber a chance to make lots usual the title is a spoiler but that s OK Unfortunately it gives Weber a chance to make lots people go all gooey over Honor until the heroine worship already cloying becomes just too much We definitely get a much deeper look into Haven s society problems Weber has done a fine job there the book is worth reading for that if nothing lse He s done a fine job of drawing parallels to our current welfare system Communist countries the French Revolution The abysmal stupidity ignorance of generational dole recipients as a whole is perfect his pointed remarks about where our The Chinese Economy: Transitions and Growth educational system are heading were right on target IOW he s a bit preachy politically again but it didn t bother me as much as in the last While hexplains as much he showed which helpedOn to the next Echoes of Hono.
