Revue de presse

"Honor, my favorite space war character, doesn't give up easily when In Enemy Hands. I can't wait for the next".

--Philadelphia Weekly Press

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Road to Hell

Honor Harrington's career has its ups and its downs. She's survived ship-to-ship battles, assassins, political vendettas, and duels. She's been shot at, shot down, and just plain shot, had starships blown out from under her, and made personal enemies who will stop at nothing to ruin her, and somehow she's survived it all.

But this time she's really in trouble.

The People's Republic of Haven has finally found an admiral who can win battles, and Honor's orders take her straight into an ambush. Outnumbered, outgunned, and unable to run, she has just two options: see the people under her command die in a hopeless, futile battle... or surrender them-and herself-to the Peeps.

There can be only one choice, and at least the People's Navy promises to treat their prisoners honorably. But the Navy is overruled by the political authorities, and Honor finds herself bound for a prison planet aptly named "Hell"... and her scheduled execution.

Put into solitary confinement, separated from her officers and her treecat Nimitz, and subjected to systematic humiliation by her gaolers, Honor's future has become both bleak and short. Yet bad as things look, they're about to get worse ...for the Peeps.

At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

A lifetime military history buff, David Weber has carried his interest in history into his fiction.  In the New York Times best selling Honor Harrington series, the spirit of both C.S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and history's Admiral Nelson are evident.  With over five million copies of his books in print, David Weber is the fastest rising star in the Science Fiction universe.  His Honor Harrington series boasts over 3 million copies in print, and Weber has had over thirteen of his titles on The New York Times Best Seller List.  War of Honor, book 10 in the series appeared on over twelve Best Seller lists, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and USA TODAY.

While he is best known for his spirited, modern-minded space operas, he has also developed a fantasy series, of which two books have been published:  Oath of Swords and The War God's Own.  David's solo work also includes three novels of the "Dahak" series, and the stand alone novels:  Path of the Fury and The Excalibur Alternative.

Weber's first published novels grew out of his work as a war game designer for the Task Force game Starfire.  With collaborator Steve White, Weber has written four novels set in that universe: Insurrection, Crusade, In Death Ground, and The Shiva Option.

Recent bestsellers in planetary adventures also include the teamwork of John Ringo in the best selling Empire of Man series where the titles March Upcountry, March to the Sea, March to the Stars and We Few have made appearances on The New York Times List.

Weber's proliferation continues with author Eric Flint, where they joined forces in the Best Selling "Ring of Fire" alternate history series, for 1634: The Baltic War, coming in May.

A popular guest at science fiction conventions, Weber makes his home in South Carolina with his wife Sharon, three children and a passel of dogs.

Ne pouvant pas attendre la traduction française de la suite de la série Honor Harrington, je me suis décidé a l'acheter en anglais; et je n'ai pas été déçu.
Même si j'ai parfois eu quelques difficultés avec certains termes techniques, l'histoire se comprend bien et est toujours aussi passionnante, avec ses cotés tactiques et psychologiques toujours aussi présents.
D'ailleurs, je n'en peux plus d'attendre de recvoir la suite(toujours en anglais)
allez y, meme en anglais, cette serie est toujours aussi captivante

HASH(0x8e005720) étoiles sur 5 Honor captured by the Peeps - say what ?! 7 janvier 1999
Par William Underhill (trode@geocities.com) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Ok, Mr. Weber, you've thrown me a curve. What makes it frustrating is that the curve is one of those things that's so obvious in retrospect that you want to kick yourself in the forehead (not easy to do :-) Honor's skill, courage and luck had to meet its match sooner or later, and similarly, the Peeps sooner or later had to get the upper hand. Military campaigns of this length are *never* one-sided, after all.
I'm glad to see the contrast between the Peep 'regular Navy' officers, and the State Security thugs. It seems obvious that StateSec's goons are cast in the same spiritual mould as Hitler's SS (even the initials...) I grant that the purpose and political requirements of StateSec do not require naval expertise of the highest calibre, but I found their personnel to be just a little too 'dumb Imperial stormtrooper'-like for my taste. On the other hand, they *were* up against Chief Harkness, a personage whom even the RMN, not to mention the Marines, has had trouble dealing with on occasion.
My biggest single complaint is that this book, much like Lucas's "Empire Strikes Back" sort of leaves you hanging at the end. The general feeling I got was "So our heroes are OK for the moment, but..." Nevertheless, an excellent read, and I'm waiting with bated breath for the eight volume to come out. Keep writing, Mr. Weber!

HASH(0x8e005774) étoiles sur 5 Picks up at the end 28 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
The author spends too much time in characters' heads. Conceivably this could be interesting but not here. About 1/4 of the way through I got fed up and skipped over about half of the book, reading only a paragraph here and there. However the last third or quarter is so riveting that I stayed up 2 hours too late simply to finish it, and the next day I bought the book that comes after this one. My general impression of Weber books is that they start slowly, filling in character, but they accelerate, so that at the end they are very exciting and moving - it's the endings that keep me coming back. Same occurs here, but the beginning of the book is too slow.

HASH(0x8e005948) étoiles sur 5 The Best HH Since OBS 27 janvier 2004
Par Ethan Jennings - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
After the superb 'On Basilisk Station,' 'In Enemy Hands' is my favorite HH novel. As the war starts turning in Manticore's favor, Honor is captured by recurring Peep admiral Lester Tourville. Cordelia Ransom, Citizen Committeewoman for Public Information, takes Honor aboard her flagship and announces that Honor will be executed for the events of OBS (remember, she was tried in absentia in the PRH). The rest of the story follows our heroes (including old series favs like McKeon, Venizelos, Tremaine, and Harkness) and Honor aboard Ransom's battlecruiser as it voyages to the secret Peep prison known as Hell... and Honor's appointment with the gallows. A good deal of the story is in character interaction, showing how the various members of Honor's crew (and Honor herself) deal with the brutality of their State Security (SS--get it?) captors. There is, though, quite the battle in the end, by far my favorite action sequence in an HH book. Longtime fans might shed a few tears as some old friends don't make it out alive, but the experience is definitely rewarding. This book ends in something of a cliffhanger, so you'll want the next one, 'Echoes of Honor,' on-hand as soon as you finish!

HASH(0x8e005f78) étoiles sur 5 Carry on, Mr Weber. 17 septembre 2000
Par Mike Galer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
My second Honour Harrington novel, which now has me firmly resolved to go back to the beginning and start from the first to catch up. There is a sense of dramatic irony which Weber takes full advantage of. We know from the back-cover description that Honour gets captured; it is what the novel is about after all. So as certain decisions take her closer to that end, it makes you scream "look out behind you" with a sense of exciting anticipation: "how is Honour going to get out of this one?" Action, character and plot are all handled excellently: background and motivation dealt with in an intelligent manner rather than two-dimensionally. Generally the novel goes off in new directions, away from pure space-battles of the last few novels. I can see further diversions ahead as the novels continue (as they must, please as this novel ended on a great 'to be continued...'). Recommended SF action. One note on quality: my edition fell apart during reading. Perhaps this is a one-off, but I'm going to read the next book very carefully.

HASH(0x8e005f9c) étoiles sur 5 Weber does it again 22 novembre 2005
Par rnorton828 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Honor Harrington returns for a seventh installment in David Weber's bestselling series with In Enemy Hands. Honor is now in command of a joint squadron of both the Manticoran and Grayson naval forces. When she and her crew are ambushed by a Peep squadron and find themselves outnumbered and outgunned, Harrington must choose between fighting to the last man and seeing her crew oliterated, or surrendering her crew (and herself) to the People's Navy. Honor chooses the latter and finds herself imprisoned, tortured and humiliated (not to mention sentenced to death) by the Havenite State Security force. With Harrington out of the action, that allows charactaers like McKeon and Harkness to step up to center stage. Weber gives a delightfully cold-hearted villain in Cordelia Ransome, the PRH head of publicity. The Manicorans escape with the help of a renengade, but find the only place they can go is the Havenites' secret prison planet. This is a story that is "to be continued" into the next book. Altogether, In Enemy Hands is a great read and a great entry in Weber's excellent HH series. And I am currently reading (and enjoying) Book 8 in the Honor Harrington series, Echoes of Honor.
