Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Peril and strife strike on a double front for Honor Harrington and company. After a brutal attack on the Manticoran home system, Honor Harrington has rooted out a plan designed to enslave the entire human species. Behind that plan lies the shadowy organization known as the Mesan Alignment. Task number one for Honor is to shut down and secure the wormhole network that is the source of the Star Kingdom's wealth and power—but also its greatest vulnerability. Yet this is an act that the ancient and corrupt Earth-based Solarian League inevitably takes as a declaration of war.

The thunder of battle rolls as the Solarian League directs its massive power against the Star Kingdom. And once again, Honor Harrington is thrust into a desperate battle that she must win if she is to survive to take the fight to the real enemy of galactic freedom—the insidious puppetmasters of war who lurk behind the Mesan Alignment!

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.

As usual with David Weber, action and politics combine themself to lead to an unbearable suspense. You literrally need to go on, to read one chapter more,... until you reach the end, and then the only thing left to you is a huge pressure to go buy the next one. Which, unfotunatelly, is not out yet...

in this book, all pieces are finally in place, and the final war, the final confrontation may begin at last. Space will be filled by death and destruction... And Honor Harrington will be at the heart of it!

Excellent nouvel opus de David Weber. Ce nouveau roman fait le lien entre l'univers de Honor Harrington et les événements survenus sur Torche. Du souffle, des rebondissements et un vrai plaisir à la clé.

Par ailleurs, cerise sur le gâteau, ce volume en anglais rassemble les aventures parues en français en 2 tomes proposés à des prix indécents

3.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a setup novel, laying the ground work for great-things to come - I hope. 2 septembre 2014
Par Joe Prior - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As a Caveat I love the Honorverse Books and the spin-offs, so I'm probably biased.

I feel like Rising Thunder must be building toward something, because those whole book was pretty much a lot of politicking and foreshadowing and planning.

I understand that this sort of thing was kind of inevitable in a story about an officer in a star-faring Military. Honor is repeatedly successful in a string of Naval engagements of Trafalgar-levels of import - she's going to be promoted. I get it.

But "Thunder" spends so much of its time on Earth, dealing with "the bad-guys" that Weber forgets to write about his main character. I think Weber was so concerned about writing a novel about his heroes going to war against Earth, that he needed to go out of his way to establish that Earth has been so thoroughly corrupted that our heroes are *really* responding to the Machiavellian maneuverings of a small cadre of super-corrupt bureaucrats and the well-meaning, honest Earthlings who are just following orders. I get it Mr. Weber, everyone gets it - lets get back to our heroes please.

I've spent all these books reading about Manticore and its Allies, and Honor and her colleagues in the RMN. I want to keep reading about them! I don't care about corrupt bureaucrats on Earth, I get plenty of that in my News, thank you very much. This series was touted to me as the best of Military Sci Fi, with an emphasis on Hard SF - and up until now this has generally held true. But in "Thunder" I think this series has moved beyond the realm of MIL SF and into general SF or Political SF.

I don't really know how to fix it, but something, which made Honor's earlier outings so special, is missing in Rising Thunder, I think.

tl;dr - A somewhat longwinded set-up for something grand in the next novel. If you've followed Honor this long you may as well keep going, but this is not Weber's finest hour.

Incidentally, if you haven't read them - the Shadows of Saganami series is beyond excellent.

I don't recommend purchasing this book unless you have a grounding in prior Honor Harrington books. I did plod through and finish the book and feel badly about the two star rating. While I have read the entire Honor series twice, this book lost me.

This is allegedly an Honor Harrington book but aside from one very short mention of her relative to some peace negotiations with Haven, she is not a presence until Page 129. In the meantime all you have are pages and pages of dialogues and background babble. Just how many conversations can you listen to before losing interest? Many typos and excessively wordy sentences (some more than 4 lines long) make it difficult to read

There are just too many characters and titles to keep track of. And, "Permanent Senior Undersecretary Innokentiy Arsenovich Kolokoltsov" is just such a mouthful that I finally gave up on most of them. Fewer, more thoroughly developed characters would have been much more enjoyable and given the book more substance. And what's with all the multi-national hyphenated names (e.g. Jacques Benton-Raminez y Chou)? I would like to know the details (sizes, capabilities, comparisons) on the myriad starships used in the ongoing battles between the warring political entities. While they are the same descriptions used in ancient Old Terra wet navy battles, if you aren't familiar with battleships, destroyers, etc. you can get lost. I've found star maps on Weber's web site which helps, so how about the warships, too? don't have $300+ to purchase Jayne's Intelligence Review.

The first 10 or books of the Honor Harrington series were delightful; might as well go back and re-read again rather than try to contend with Weber's most recent offerings.

“A Rising Thunder”:

Where we are: Book 13 in the main series

Which books precede: “Mission of Honor” (main series), “Storm From the Shadows” (Saganami series), and Torch of Freedom (“Torch” series)

Which book follows: Main Series, TBA. “Shadow of Freedom” (Saganami Series) “Cauldron of Ghosts” (Torch Series)

Note: This Review assumes you have read the previous books in the series, or at least the ones mentioned above. Here be spoilers if not.

The Review: Picking up at the point where Queen Elizabeth III of Manticore and President Elizabeth Pritchart of The Republic of Haven agree to an alliance against the increasingly corrupt—and incompetently so—Solarian League, the author first backs up to show some of the effects of the junction point blockade the Manties have created, and then winds his way back (and repeats a three-page sequence) to the Haven-Manticore agreement. Then, with his usual skillful weaving of multiple points of view, Mr. Weber shows you the machinations of the Mesans and the Solarians, and throws in as a centerpiece Honor’s brilliant battle plan to protect the battered Manticore (still suffering from the Mesan Alliance’s strike) from yet another attempt by the Solarians to defeat Manticore.

The author is fond of citing Murphy’s Law, and much goes wrong; but unlike a certain other long and winding series, which has found its way to television on Sunday nights in the spring, not EVERYTHING goes wrong, and while we do lose some beloved characters along the way, not EVERYONE.

After the battle sequence there is more political scheming and of all things a royal wedding that includes Rabbi Yaakov O’Reilly. And, of course, there is much setup for the next book in the main sequence, which as of the fall of 2015 has yet to be announced.

Mr. Weber can, I believe, be called syfy’s Trollope (although you may not wish to), and this is just another segment of this amazing tapestry that has evolved from military syfy to something far more grand—something that seems to put off some readers more than somewhat.
I am not among those.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A necessary book, no real surprises... 4 septembre 2012
Par SRH - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Weber attempts to tie together a LOT of different threads from the different Honorverse books. If you are a main line reader (like me, just the Weber authored main HH books) then this book is an okay read but you have to slog through sections with characters that you don't necessarily care about. I'm not a huge fan of the whole gene-war Manpower arc but I can live with it. If you are a fan of the whole Honorverse then this book is probably a bit better for you.
Where Weber fails both groups of readers is that this goes BACK in time a bit and fleshes out (I feel unnecessarily) more of the story arc for both Honor and Cachat (and crew). Weber fills pages with details but none of them actually add to the story all that much, so this is why I give it 3 stars, it's pedestrian/utility writing but readable. Weber has done much better.
There are flashes of the better storyline and writing, however, they are just flashes. Weber needed to write this book to tie everything back into the main line, but he did it with no surprise or even the flair expected of him. I think he's carrying too many stories at the same time in his career at this point and he seems a little tired of poor Honor. I'm not sure he's enough in love with her at this moment to keep the expectation of the fans high enough here. He either needs to take a break from HH and get the noise of the other stories out of his head so he can come back clear minded or just write the ending tome (which will be weaker than it should be due to the distractions) for the HH main line and be done with it.
The one thing Weber does right with this book is assume that nobody picks up this book and reads it as if it were a stand alone. Those reviews that claim of being 'lost' are people who either came in from a couple of the shorter Honorverse titles or newbies that need to go back to On Basilisk Station, which I am jealous of, they have a real treat in store for them in the first set of books.

The scope of this series is immense but the reader remains drawn to the individual charismatic characters who continue to evolve in interesting ways. Honor and the treecats are pivotal, but there are an abundance of other fascinating cast members. If you haven't read any of these I recommend you start at the beginning.
