About the Author:

David Weber is a science fiction phenomenon. His popular Honor Harrington space-opera adventures are "New York Times" bestsellers and can't come out fast enough for his devoted readers. Weber and his wife Sharon live in South Carolina.

From Booklist:

The archetypically villainous People's Republic of Haven is seeking to divert attention from domestic difficulties by the means indicated in the title. Honor Harrington, commanding a crack ship, plays a steadily increasing and finally decisive role in bringing the Havenite plots to a sticky end. One hopes the third (after On Basilisk Station [1993] and The Honor of the Queen [1993]) is not the last of Weber's tales of Honor Harrington, captain in the navy of the Manticoran Star Kingdom. These yarns rather make one think of Star Wars as it might have been written by C. S. Forester, creator of Horatio Hornblower. They do not pretend to be more than fast-paced entertainment, and Weber's creative ingenuity has guaranteed that they are that very nicely. Roland Green
