This is an Honoverse novel. That simply means the setting is in the Universe created for the terrific Honor Harrington series. This book deals with The Mesan Alignment a secret society on
Mesa that has been playing puppet master over
the nearby star systems.
I have trouble keeping track of the Honorverse. I do like both Weber and
Flint as authors. I, inadvertently, read this book out of
order so a great deal of it was confusing.
If I hadn't read all of the Harrington books I would have been
The story is good but a bit wordy. The action aspect is not as apparent as in many of the
stories. it was a good book but not up
to the Honor Harrington standards.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
