With more than eight million copies of his books in print and 33 titles on the New York Times bestseller list, David Weber is a science fiction powerhouse. In the vastly popular Honor Harrington series, the spirit of C.S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O'Brian's Master and Commander lives on--into the galactic future. Books in the Honor Harrington and Honorverse series have appeared on 21 bestseller lists, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA Today. Additional Honorverse collaborations include the spin-off miniseries Manticore Ascendant with New York Times best-selling author, Timothy Zahn; and with Eric Flint, Crown of Slaves and Cauldron of Ghosts contribute to his illustrious list of New York Times and international bestseller lists.
Best known for his spirited, modern-minded space operas, Weber is also the creator of the Oath of Swords fantasy series and the Dahak saga, a science fiction and fantasy hybrid. Weber has also engaged in a steady stream of best-selling collaborations: the Starfire Series with Steve White; The Empire of Man Series with John Ringo; the Multiverse Series with Linda Evans and Joelle Presby; and the Ring of Fire Series with Eric Flint. David Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife and children.
After the fall of the People's Republic of Haven, the newly formed government of Haven attempts to sue for peace in its ongoing war with the Manticorean-led Star Kingdom. Called home from active duty to help maintain an uneasy peace on the diplomatic front, Lady Dame Honor Harrington finds herself confronting scandal and internal treachery as the political situation steadily moves closer to a resumption of hostilities. The tenth novel in Weber's popular Honor Harrington series, which also includes three short story collections, expands the political and military aspects of his dynastic space saga into new arenas as new threats cause a shift in alliances and sets the stage for future spacefaring adventures. Series fans will enjoy the further exploits of favorite characters, while aficionados of military sf should appreciate the faithful attention to military detail in the battle scenes. A solid choice for sf collections, particularly for libraries that own previous series titles.
In previous installments of David Weber's bestselling space opera series featuring the intrepid Honor Harrington, she's won the sometimes unwilling admiration of friend and foe alike in her battles with the brutal and corrupt People's Republic of Haven. In her 10th outing, War of Honor, the People's Republic is no more, but Lady Admiral Harrington, following in the best tradition of C.S. Forester, Patrick O'Brian and Robert A. Heinlein, faces her most dangerous adversary yet: a new government in her own star kingdom run by the petty, venal and stupid former Opposition, who proceed to squander the hard-fought victory.
