    One thought on “Mission of Honor”

    1. Book 12 in the “main” Honor Harrington series finds Manticore finally confronting the Solarian League. As Weber has been hinting at for years, Manticore (and to a lesser degree, Haven) have both achieved very significant technological superiority compared to the league with regards to military hardware. The Solarian League is huge and powerful, but also complacent, arrogant, and full of self-delusion. Added to the mix is the growing threat from Mesa/Manpower. The main action in this book is [...]

    2. While an interesting addition to the Honor series, Weber is getting far too wordy for my taste. The universe has expanded a lot, so it does require more points of view & explanation, but I think he's going too far. There were a lot of long meetings between characters. I avoid meetings in real life. They're certainly not the stuff of which my fantastic dreams are made of, so their sheer number were a disappointment. Weber tries to capture some immediacy with a lot of little sections from the [...]

    3. The is the 12th outing in the Honor Harrington series, which has grown to the point that it's spawned short story collections and off-shoots elsewhere into the same universe. I was addicted to these for a while, but book 10 was disappointing and book 11 was even worse so I'd kind of given up.The book made me happy to be back.One of the biggest problems I was having with the series is at a certain point characters like this run out of places to go that have the same kind of action of the earlier [...]

    4. This book was false advertising in my mind. It claims to be the 12th book in the Honor Harrington series but really it's another worlds of Honor book with her making a few appearances in some of the chapters. I'd be fine with that if the book jacket, cover, etc. made that point apparent. Moreover, this book has moved so far away from everything I loved about the early books. There is very little of the great action scenes and fun character interaction. Instead, almost the entire book is devoted [...]

    5. Weber is on a roll. I hesitate to award this book five stars because of the way it ends but the story doesn't. But, as any Honor Harrington reader who has gotten this far in the series knows, "If you can't take a joke. . . ."Now that his new threat has found traction, Weber has left the mind-numbing recapitulations behind and forged into new plot territory. The action is varied, interwoven and galactic.A good read.

    6. Mission of Honor begins shortly after the events of the previous book At All Costs following on from the build up of tensions with the Solarian League and the Battle of Manticore where the Manticorians essentially knocked their long term enemies the Republic of Haven out of the war they had been de facto fighting between them for almost two decades! :D Much of Mission of Honor is spread over a wide breadth of characters with naturally Honor featuring heavily as she leads for a large proportion o [...]

    7. First read 24 Nov 2010 and again 7 April 2012.I do like to catch up with all the books in a series. On the other hand, I hate to catch up when I'm dying to know what's gonna happen next. Gawd, there is so much happening on so many fronts in Mission of Honor and I was so terrified at what would happen I couldn't decide if I should tear through the book or set it aside every few chapters to stave off the bad news.While this particular story is supposedly about Honor with her diplomatic mission to [...]

    8. Mission of Honor is the twelfth book in the Honor Harrington series by David Weber. The story takes place right after Storm in the Shadows and At All Costs. In At All Costs Honor and her eighth fleet have smashed the Havenite navy and the war between both star nations is over. The only thing left is to finally have a treaty between them. In the Talbott cluster, Admiral Michel Henke has just defeated a squadron of the Solarian navy, and the Solarians are not happy about it.Throughout the history [...]

    9. Ugh. For an "Honor Harrington" book she was hardly freaking in it. This could have been 200-300 pages less, or had more content about the main characters of the series, and it would have been MUCH better. I'm ashamed to say that I skimmed nearly all the sections with the Solarian League and barely gave more attention to the stuff with Gold Peak - and I actually like her.Very disappointed. I even took a break from the series before reading this one so I wouldn't be burned out.

    10. As usual, Weber tells a winding tale with long-running character, Honor Harrington. This book is chocked full of intrigue and the resulting tension - but only after a bit of a slow start. At times it's as dense as a Le Carre book but seems to bog down at times for no reason. Overall, I enjoyed this edition of the series.

    11. 74 out of 100 for 2010As I flipped the last page I screamed out loud at David Weber, "You jackass--you CAN"T stop there." I then shared several salty phrases, which, as an ex sailor, I am entitled to utter.That's how engaging this book is.The war with the Haven is militarily concluded, and yet, people on the Haven and the Manticoran sides are unwilling to conclude a peace agreement--partially because of a generational distrust between the two peoples, and partially because some within both sides [...]

    12. My oh my, when Weber wraps up a long running story arc he does it in style. For long time fans of the series--this is the book we have been waiting for. Finally the truth about the doctored documents (War of Honor,2002), the assassination of Ambassador Webster, the attempted assassinations of Queen Berry and Honor (At All Costs, 2005) are laid out during peace negotiations between Haven and Manticore. Finally, the leaders of both countries wake up and smell the coffee, as it were, regarding the [...]

    13. In some ways, this was better than the previous book in the series -- it was less about huge numbers and starting to get more into intrigue. Honor Harrington was in fewer military battles; I've read that she was originally intended to be killed in the previous book, and here it seems Weber could have pulled it off.On the other hand, Weber has either one or maaaybe two voices that he uses consistently for every single one of his characters' dialogue; for a book that features as many POV character [...]

    14. Okay, the series is still entertaining, I'll give the author that. But several books ago it started getting too damn complicated for its own good, and this book is a perfect example of that. Weber seems to be running out of ideas and therefore resorts to introducing bigger and badder superweapons, more devastating battles with the Worst! Casualties! Ever! (including the deaths of even more of our favorite characters, just to keep us "invested"), and insanely Byzantine and improbable conspiracies [...]

    15. It has been over five years since I last read a book in the Honor Harrington series. I had forgotten how much each book deals with the politics of the Star Empire of Manticore, the Republic of Haven, the Solarian League, Mesa, and Manpower. Not that there isn't any space-opera action, because there is -- it just takes a back seat to political maneuverings. And, every once in a while, we get to catch up with what's happening with Honor, her family, and her adorable empathic treecat, Nimitz.

    16. This dragged more than a lot of the Honor Harrington books. It has some really good parts (view spoiler)[ (Honor's trip to Haven to negotiate peace, the Mesan Alignment's attack on Manticore's shipyards, Andrew Lafollette's heroism, the return of Victor Cachat) (hide spoiler)] but had too many infodumps about how the different missiles worked. While the info about how the spider drive worked was probably necessary, it was way too long. And the meetings of the Solarian bureaucrats were also borin [...]

    17. oh david weber. i enjoy your plotting (although the politics is getting old) and yet I skip probably a quarter of the book. way too many characters who aren't central to the storythough at 600 pages this is shorter than some of the recent onesso, the Honor Harrington plots have gone downhill since he ran out of Horatio Nelson. He should have killed her off as originally planned. Probably not the best move revenue wise, but the new books haven't been nearly as good as the older ones.

    18. It's David Weber and it's Honor Harrington. That's enough for me. I know some people are tired of all the political talk and the repetitions, but Weber is still on my "read everything he writes immediately" list.

    19. I dragged myself through 800+ pages of interminably dry interchanges between politicos, enemies and allies, and then FINALLY we get a bunch of explosions that rip a couple planets' space stations apart. Whelp. Everybody is sad, shocked, devastated also sad. Did I mention shocked? Yes, also devastated. People tender their resignations for failing to see this coming. They are turned down. Does that stop them? NO! They tender those resignations again!Also turned down. Is there a bright side? NOT th [...]

    20. Best Honor Harrington of the last three. Book 10 was pretty bad for a lot of reasons. 11 was getting better and 12 was very good indeed. Weber brings back his successful original formulae in this book and it works quite well. I did notice however that just as Book 11 uses "Shadow of Saganami" as backstory this one used "Crown of Slaves" as backstory and as I'd not read this one I felt quite confused about how the characters were referencing the events from that book's happenings quite a bit. So [...]

    21. Mission of Honor marks David Weber’s twelth main entry into the Honorverse as it’s known amongst fans; though it is in truth a follow up to Storm from the Shadows; which Baen is marketing as a Disciples of Honor novel. Mission of Honor returns the titular character to the forefront though the sprawling events of the novel indicate that Weber’s Honorverse has become increasingly informed by his work on the Safehold series; a fact that is something of a double-edged sword. Some spoilery summ [...]

    22. This series gets farther and farther from Honor Harrington. Once you become a full Admiral, the war fighting goes out the airlock and the tactics are more what happens. With the two side series, the political intrigue has really ratcheted up. I can't wait to pick up the next book in the series.

    23. I looooove David Weber's Honorverse. Something-verse, for the socially capable, is geek-speak for the world or universe in which one or a number of an author's works appear. It has a long history: Robert E. Howard's grim warriors slew their way though the same world, although at different times. Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan visited Pellucidar, the hollow interior earth of Burroughs "Earth's Core" books, and his Venusian adventurer Carson Napier had intended to reach the Barsoom of John Carter un [...]

    24. Too many side characters that only appeared 1 or two times. It makes it hard to determine who is who, especially since the scenes switch so quickly. Too many unnecessary details. For example, I did not want to know the length, width of the missles. How many are in the ship and how fast they go under different conditions. Especially sinceI was told this for every ship in the book. This book is a fun read. If I have to study, take notes and memorize in order to understand a fun read.Also there wer [...]

    25. After enjoying the first couple of these I've felt the series has gone downhill substantially and have only been reading out of a sense of obsessive completism.Honor Harrington, as well as being an excellent captain, markswoman, swimmer, glider pilot, teacher, stateswoman, and businesswoman also turns out to be an amazing diplomat despite having had no prior experience. Fortunately Harrington isn't actually a major part of this. Something that most of fans that have stuck this far will probably [...]

    26. While this is certainly not the place to start reading Weber's Honorverse novels (I'd begin at the beginning, On Basilisk Station), this is a worthy and fun continuation of the series, and represents the beginning of a new period in the series, where the war with Haven is no longer the source of major conflict. The seeds of that were sown in At All Costs, of course. It's less focussed on Honor, too. The fact is, Honor has gotten too senior, too important and too powerful to write good stories fo [...]

    27. From Publishers Weekly Weber (Storm from the Shadows) combines realistic, engaging characters with intelligent technological projection and a deep understanding of military bureaucracy in the long-awaited 12th Honor Harrington novel. The long war between the Star Empire of Manticore and the Republic of Haven is in its death throes, and the Manties are poised to win. Honor, now a duchess and admiral of the Manticore Empire and one of the few imperial leaders to believe that the Republic's new lea [...]

    28. "Mission of Honor" is book #12 of the Honor Harrington series. It is just tremendous, both in size and the change in the story line. Frankly it had looked like the series was winding down, but the new storyline of genetic slavery and the Mesan Alignment is just fabulous.The Story: The war between Manticore and Haven has come to an impasse. In the previous book, At All Costs, Haven's military has been reduced to almost nothing in their last bid to overwhelm the Manticore Space Navy. Now it is tim [...]
