Not even its own government knows how enormous its economy truly is. And for hundreds of years, the League has borne the banner of human civilization, been the ideal to which humanity aspires in its diaspora across the galaxy. But the bureaucrats known as the "Mandarins," who rule today's League, are not the men and women who founded it so long ago.

They are corrupt, venal, accountable to no one Honor Harrington has worn the Star Kingdom's uniform for half a century and served her monarch and her people well. Very few people know war the way Honor Harrington does. Very few have lost as many men and women, as many friends, as much family as she has.

Yet despite that, hers has been a voice of caution.

Shadow of Freedom by David Weber

She knows the Mandarins and the Solarian League Navy are growing increasingly desperate as the truth of their technological inferiority sinks home, but she also knows the sheer size of the League. And she knows how its citizens will react if the Grand Alliance takes the war to the League, attacks its star systems, destroys its infrastructure Today's victory, bought on those terms, can only guarantee a future war of revenge against a resurgent Solarian League and its navy. The League is sliding toward inglorious defeat as it steadily loses ground in the Protectorates and the Verge.

Hundreds of budding civilizations had been eliminated by Trellixian battle fleets.

Honorverse

On Earth, years in the past, a scout ship fleeing from the Trellixians crashed. Scientists investigating the wreckage discovered what the Trellixians had done to the world the scout ship escaped from. They also discovered it was only a matter of time before the Trellixians reached Earth. Isaac Gallant is the heir apparent to the First Admiral.

Betrayal and failure, however, see Isaac Gallant and his allies captured. Rather than execute her only son, the First Admiral instead decides to exile them, flinging four million dissidents and rebels through a one-shot wormhole to the other end of the galaxy. There, Isaac finds himself forced to keep order and peace as they seek out a new home without becoming the very dictator he fought against. Our universe is ruled by physics, and faster-than-light travel is not possible - until the discovery of The Flow, an extradimensional field we can access at certain points in space-time that transports us to other worlds, around other stars.

Humanity flows away from Earth, into space, and in time forgets our home world and creates a new empire, the Interdependency, whose ethos requires that no one human outpost can survive without the others. It's a hedge against interstellar war - and a system of control for the rulers of the empire.

Saved from death by a passing Fleet ship, he is left with nothing but his skills, a gun, and a burning desire for vengeance. In fact, he was a history teacher - chairman of the Castle Rock University history department - and if his life wasn't perfect, it was close. The psychotic episode that turned his entire world upside down struck with absolutely no warning, and it was more terrifying than anything he should have been able to imagine. Leo Graf was just your average highly efficient engineer: mind your own business, fix what's wrong, and move on to the next job. But all that changed on his assignment to the Cay Habitat, where a group of humanoids had been secretly, commercially bioengineered for working in free fall.

Could he just stand there and allow the exploitation of hundreds of helpless children merely to enhance the bottom line of a heartless mega-corporation? Earth is conquered. Sol is lost. One ship is tasked to free them. One Captain to save them all. When an alien armada destroys the United Earth Space Force and takes control of the human homeworld, newly reinstated Captain Annette Bond must take her experimental hyperspace cruiser Tornado into exile as Terra's only interstellar privateer.

She has inferior technology, crude maps, and no concept of her enemy, but the seedy underbelly of galactic society welcomes her so long as she has prizes to sell and money to spend. The Solarian League's navy counts its superdreadnoughts by the thousands. Not even its own government knows how enormous its economy truly is.

And for hundreds of years, the League has borne the banner of human civilization, been the ideal to which humanity aspires in its diaspora across the galaxy.

But the bureaucrats known as the "Mandarins," who rule today's League, are not the men and women who founded it so long ago.

Honor Harrington - Fanvideo

The League is sliding toward inglorious defeat as it steadily loses ground in the Protectorates and the Verge. As its central government teeters toward bankruptcy and even some of its core systems opt to secede in the face of the Mandarins' corruption.

Hardback Editions

As the Solarian Navy finally realizes it cannot face an Alliance battle fleet and win. But the Mandarins have embraced a desperate new strategy, and in pursuit of that strategy, the SLN has committed atrocities such as the galaxy has not known in a thousand years. The League have violated its own Eridani Edict against mass civilian casualties, violated the Deneb Accords prohibition on war crimes. Hers is the voice of caution and compromise no longer, and the galaxy is about to see something it has never imagined.

I am a big fan of the Honor Harrington Series. It was the first Sci-Fi series that I got hooked on. Over the years this series is what I compare all others against. I found that I liked military science fiction with a strong female leader. I was so excited that the next book of the series finally came out. My only complaint is that I had to wait five years for it. The League is headquartered in Chicago on Earth and is a very old League and extremely enormous in size. Its Navy ships are in the hundreds of thousands and Manticore is just recovering from almost being completely destroyed.

I was surprised at how much I had remembered of the story considering the five-year gap. It was so great to be reading about the Star Kingdom again. My only complaint was there was not enough about Honor. I wanted the entire story about only Honor like in the old days of the series.

From what I have read, this might be the last book in the series. How sad to think of Honor coming to an end. I guess I will have to re-read the series. I have never re-read a series before. Over the years it is this series about Honor Harrington that I have measured against any new series I start. I imagine that will not change as this is still my first and favorite series. The book is long at thirty hours twenty-seven minutes. Allyson Johnson does a great job narrating this entire series.

Johnson started out as a teenage actress. She won an Emmy at age of twelve. For the almost past twenty years she has been a dedicated voice-over artist and audiobook narrator. She has won multiple Earphone Awards and was an Audio Award nominee.
