In enemy hands
David Weber
Adult Fiction WEBER

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

In a surprisingly dreary outing, Weber (Honor Among Enemies) continues the military adventures of his perennial heroine, Honor Harrington. The most powerful officials in the People's Republic of Haven (at war with Manticore and its Royal Navy, for whom Honor fights) have decided to ease up a bit on their space navy, as annihilating officers' families after military mishaps has had a deadening effect on the troops. Cordelia Ransom, head of the Republic's Office of Public Information, takes a field trip to oversee how this and other policy decisions will affect the fleet. When Honor is captured by the Republic's forces, Cordelia uses every excuse to humiliate and try to break Honor. Meanwhile, Admiral of the Green Hamish Alexander and the loyal Grayson clan (including a tribe of the always adorable alien treecats) wait and worry, hoping that some miracle will save their beloved Honor. Far less exciting then previous volumes in the series, this novel is stuffed with backstory and political jockeying. With action sequences sparse until the final chapters, it is likely to disappoint all but the most avid of Honor's fans. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

This latest Honor Harrington novel (Honor Among Enemies, LJ 6/15/96) finds her promoted to commodore and adjusting to home life as her planet's first female feudal steadholder. On a routine flight, Harrington's enemies capture her spaceship, and she must escape execution on a planet called Hell. Weber blends a mix of political intrigue with space adventure for another satisfying tale. Recommended. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
