The People's Republic of Haven's sneak attack on the Kingdom of Manticore has failed. The Peeps are in disarray, their leaders fighting for power in bloody revolution, and the Royal Manticoran Navy stands victorious. But Manticore has domestic problems of its own, and success can be more treacherous than defeat for Honor Harrington. Now, trapped at the core of a political crisis she never sought, betrayed by an old and vicious enemy she'd thought vanquished forever, she stands alone. She must fight for justice on a battlefield she never trained for in a private war that offers just two choices: death...or a "victory" that can end only in dishonor and the loss of all she loves.… (mere)

    Kushiel's Dart af Jacqueline Carey (bunnygirl)
    bunnygirl: I know, the base subjects (military sf vs. semi-erotic fantasy) are different, but if you're one of those who love the character dynamic between Honor and Andrew LaFollet, the protagonist and her bodyguard are quite similar...but with a quite different ending.… (mere)

This story concentrates on Honor's relationship with Captain Lord Pavel Young. After his cowardice and desertion on the field of battle that was near the end of the previous book, this book begins with his court martial. But Young has powerful friends and the government needs to appease them if they are going to get the declaration of war against Haven that the need so badly.

An almost hung jury saves Young from being shot but enough was proven to have him cashiered out of the Navy. After his father's death just after the verdict is given, Young becomes the new Lord North Hollow who inherits his father's secrets and position in the House of Lords. But he blames Honor for all his problems and won't be content until she is dead.

Before he gets to Honor though, he decides to make her life terrible by killing Paul Tankersley who is Honor's love and lover. North Hollow hires Denver Summervale to challenge Paul to a duel. Summervale is a cashiered Marine who is a killer for hire who has killed many men on women on the field of honor.

Honor had been sent to Grayson to get her out from under the massive publicity the court martial has stirred up. When she hears about Paul's death, she is determined to challenge Summervale to a duel and kill him herself. But Honor has friends on her side who get to Summervale and convince him to tell them who hired him. To no one's surprise, the man was hired by North Hollow and Summervale's confession is on tape. Of course, with the confession gotten by less than legal means it is impossible to take the take to law enforcement.

Honor publicly calls out North Hollow and demands that he meet her on the field of honor even though she gets a lot of pressure from the Queen's government and her own superiors to back off. North Hollow's support is still needed in the upcoming war effort. But Honor won't be dissuaded. She feels that the cost to her career is a cost worth paying if it gets justice for Paul and shows North Hollow for the coward he is.

The story was packed with emotional intensity. Honor's grief for the loss of Paul was very movingingly written and narrated. ( )

This tale really puts Honor through the wringer as plots to harm her come to fruition and in order to fight back she must choose between revenge, justice and her career. ( )

Given the title and the short description this is really not a surprise but I did not like this book in the Harrington series. I mostly read this one since I didn't want to skip a book in the series.

The entire book revolves around political bullshit and vendettas. It's more or less all planet-bound. No ship action at all. The only positive part is that the bratty coward of a ship captain (those who read it knows who I mean) finally bites the dust at the end.

I will not give it a one-star since that's what I reserve to the crappiest of the crappy ones and there's nothing "technically" wrong with the book but it's not at all my cup of tea. ( )

Books 3 through 5 have a pretty tight story line, almost all linked, and almost all having a misogynistic villain of some form. I'm getting ahead of myself, though.

We begin where we left off in [The Short Victorious War]-- With the establishment of Pavel Young's cowardice, the political backwash that's expected from his court marshal, and the honors heaped on Honor. The greater expansion of the political intrigue shows here.

Realize there isn't really a naval battle in this book. Yeah, okay, may or may not be a spoiler. This is a lot of dirt side maneuvering, arguing, and action. Politics is not just heavy handed here, it is the book.

I waver a little on if I continue to recommend from here. ( )

It was very quiet in the huge, dimly lit room. The Advanced Tactical Training Course's main lecture hall boasted the second largest holo tank of the Royal Manticoran Navy, and the rising, amphitheaterlike seats facing the tank seated over two thousand a full capacity.
