After a five year break, David Weber returns to his Honor Harrington series with his 19th book, Uncompromising Honor. Following Honor Harrington from a young space ensign to admiral and peer of the realm, the Honorverse is where hard science and space opera meet on a Venn diagram. Weber started the series in 1999 with On Basilisk Station. Since then, he has not only written 18 more novels, but he has also written multiple short story collections with participating authors as well as a YA series. Weber has also written other series and books along the way, but Honor seems to be the universe to which he always returns.
Honor has surpassed all the challenges thrown at her through the years, and each time the stakes tend to get higher and more dire for her and the Star Kingdom. But now she’s up against the Solarian League, the original home of humanity and the largest power in the galaxy. As much as she wants to avoid a direct conflict, the damage that the League can and does do brings out the protective instinct she has to take the battle to them and not on their terms.
The Honorverse is one of the great science fiction series. From giant space battles to hand-to-hand combat in the sewers of Old Earth, it is a series that delivers for everyone. If any complaint can be made, it’s that so many of the supporting characters are interesting in their own right and deserve stories of their own. But the Honorverse is about Honor Harrington, and rightly so, and any new book in the series is worth a celebration and a weekend free to read it in one sitting.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
