Hounded by political enemies and cut to the heart by the death of the man she loved, Honor Harrington has retreated to the planet Grayson to take up her role as Steadholder while she tries to heal her bitter wounds. But the People's Republic of Haven is rising from defeat to threaten Grayson anew, and the newborn Grayson Navy needs her. Yet even as she accepts the duty, powerful men who fear the changes she brings to their world are determined to reverse them. They have a plan - and for it to succeed, Honor Harrington must die. Two irresistible forces are rushing together to crush Grayson between them, and only one woman - uncertain of her capabilities, weary unto death, and marked for murder - stands between her adopted planet and its devastation.

David Weber is one of the top science fiction writers of the 1990s whose acclaimed Honor Harrington series has gained him a devoted and dedicated readership. His many other books include the epic fantasies Oath of Swords and The War God's Own (also Baen).From Booklist:
Here comes Honor Harrington again, and her entire crew of fans will man the yards to cheer. In her fifth adventure, she is trying to overcome self-doubts about her competence, grief over her lover's murder (despite having splendidly avenged it), and the barriers to a woman's being an effective feudal ruler on the fiercely patriarchal planet of Grayson. She is making headway when a Havenite fleet shows up, bent on the destruction of Grayson, and she must go back into space as an admiral while her enemies resort to open treachery and murder in trying to bring her down. Honor triumphs again, but with a believable amount of difficulty; she is growing into one of the more complex protagonists in military sf. Meanwhile, her fandom will continue to fall in love with Nimitz, the empathic treecat, and admire Weber's sheer ingenuity in so many aspects of creating Honor's universe. Roland Green
