"If we never see each other again, Victor, I want you to know that I have cherished you since the day I first laid eyes on you in Chicago and will continue to do so until the day I die. You've been the guardian dragon in my life, watching over those I love as well as your own. I am eternally in your debt." -- Anton Zilwicki

This book, as usual with Honourverse novels, has left me wanting to find out what happens next. It gives essential backstory to the main storyline books and is as exciting as any of them.

A typical Honorverse novel with Weber's characteristic writing style. Weber quite enjoys dialogue and there is a lot of it; sometimes you wish he would just get on with the plot. Weber also likes a large cast and sometimes it is difficult to keep up with all of the characters. Fortunately, there is a character list at the end of the book. However, for all that it does end with the fast-paced action he is known for. When it comes to describing military action Weber is unsurpassed and he delivers in the last one hundred or so pages of the book.

Without wishing to give away much of the plot, the novel follows Victor Cachat and Anton Zilwicki once again as they attempt to infiltrate the Mesan Alignment to determine what the secret organization is planning. Naval action is limited in this novel, but if you enjoy following Cachat's antics you will find the read rewarding.

Another decent book set in the Honorverse. You'd really only be interested in this book if you've kept up with the series. Unfortunately this series isn't as good as it once was. Some of the conversations feel very rehashed (like they've been used in previous books). Especially the first half of the book. However, the book continued the overall storyline of the Honorverse and for that alone it was worth the read.
