Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Perfidious Plots,
Courageous Resolve—and,
of course,
Starships Blown to Smithereens!

The Solarian League Navy has been the premier navy of the galaxy for centuries. Indeed, no one can remember a time when it hasn't been acknowledged as the most powerful fleet in existence.

Until now, that is.

A conference to end the terrible war between the Peeps of Haven and the Manticorean Star Kingdom is slated. Peace is finally within reach.

Yeah, right.

Not with the slaver conspiracy that calls itself Manpower, Inc. pulling intergalactic strings. The plan To plunge the Star Kingdom into a two-front war with Peeps and Sollies—a process calculated to blast Honor Harrington's home system to smoking ruin!

Assassination's afoot. And out on the galactic frontier known as the Verge, big trouble boils over as Solarian League arrogance butts up against the steely resolve of Harrington protégé Michelle Henke, aka Admiral Gold Peak.

Too bad for the Sollies. For Harrington's officers have a habit of coming through in the clutch and finding a way to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. But most of all—whatever the odds—they never, ever give up the fight!

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

Shadow of Saganami sequel—and the latest entry in David Weber's astoundingly adventurous, phenomenally popular, and multiply USA Today and New York Times best-selling "Honor Harrington" saga!

"Following in the best tradition of C.S. Forester, Patrick O'Brian and Robert A Heinlein! These hugely entertaining and clever adventures are the very epitome of space opera." —Publishers Weekly

"Weber's descriptions of space combat remain magnificent." —Science Fiction Weekly

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.

If you don't yet know Honor Harrigton's series it is not a book to begin with, and if you're not an unconditionnal fan(like I am) don't buy it.

But if you are, well, it is not the greatest book of the series : poor in combats and main carracters are mesan leaders and certainly not Michelle Henke like it was annonced. Still it's very promising for next books from main stream, saganami's island stream and crown of slaves stream. If you buy this one you'll have to buy those.

Mr Weber really needs a good editor because of useless stuf this book is full of. But the political plots are promising as are new weapoms systems a,d this time those are in bad guys' hands.

So if you're a long time fan buy it : it's an important(if not very interesting peace of plots taking place in honorverse. But if you're not begin this basiliks station.

j'ai découvert la saga, il y a quelque mois et j'ai dévoré tous les tomes parus en Francais et je piaffais tellement d'impatience, qu'en attendant la suite en Francais. je me suis jeté sur les tomes non traduits en Francais (en juillet 09). En ce qui concerne ce tome, il scelle mon arret d'achat sur la série. Comment dire, j'ai l'impression que ca ressemble trop à une série brésilienne qui ne finit jamais.le personnage principal change mais c'est toujours les mêmes trames qu'on nous ressort et on accroche moins à l'histoire

2.0 étoiles sur 5 weber still hasn't fixed his writing problems 30 janvier 2014
Par some reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I was a big fan of the early Honor books but stopped reading the series years ago when the infodumps and lack of editing overtook the story. Recently, I decided to give the series another try with the first two saganami books. 'Shadow of Saganami' gave me hope because it seemed that he was getting back to his roots with a new enemy, some younger characters that were not (yet) all-powerful and even a few cameos of Ginger and Aubrey all 'grown up'. But with 'Storm from the Shadows', all the old problems are back, worse than before. The cast of millions doesn't give the reader anyone to really care about --they're on screen for a couple of chapters and then discarded-- the minute details of dastardly plotters plotting, plotting and plotting yet again, are just plain tedious, and the infodumps are literally mind-boggling --for example, 5 pages about a new missile right in the middle of a conversation, and by the time the character remembers that she was asked a question by another character (5 pages ago) the reader has also forgotten what the conversation was supposed to be about in the first place.

I can appreciate that these books require a tremendous amount of work, and that all the details about the politics, the motivations, the hardware, the tactics --all those things need to be worked out. But in the end, as much work as it takes, that stuff is not "the story". It's like building a house --you need scaffolding to build the house, but the scaffolding is not part of the house and you don't deliver the house with the scaffolding still attached!

It's unfortunate, because Weber has been so good in the past. I would love to have great new books in this series to look forward to, to give Mr Weber a big chunk of my book budget and recommend him to all my friends. Sadly, none of those things are going to happen.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Another example of the weakness of Weber's writing. 24 septembre 2016
Par Mvargus - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I hadn't reviewed this, although I had reviewed some of the later books in this series that has gone on far too long. This isn't the worst in the series, but the flaws are all visible.

Frankly, if you haven't started reading this series, stop before you get this far. I'd say everything after Echoes of Honor is not worth the effort to read overall. Some of the books aren't bad and the main plot thread has the potential to be very compelling, but David Weber seems to need to show us everything that happens from the viewpoint of everyone involved and that turns what should be a short tale into a long slog.

The best way I can show this is to tell people to look at the time frame for the tales. Storm From the Shadows actually starts considerably before the end of Shadow of Saganami. However Shadows of Victory, Torch of Freedom, and A Rising Thunder all share the same 18 months of storyline. Shadows of Victory actually won't be officially published until November 1, but I've seen an advanced reader copy and it starts BEFORE Storm from the Shadows does and ends after Storm from the Shadows ends. It just looks over different people's shoulders.

It makes the stories much weaker. There is nothing new in each book for the most part, and the huge number of characters destroys most of my enjoyment.

Baen Books needs to tell Weber to move forward in his tale or they won't publish, or they will soon find no one will touch his books.

David Weber, that most Victorian of science fiction writers (he writes 'em long and involved), has set “Storm from the Shadows” in The Talbot Cluster arc of the main Honorverse series. It’s a direct sequel (with a bit of backtracking—more clever than just tacking on a prologue in my opinion) to “The Shadow of Saganami,” and as the author notes in his introduction, “some of the earlier chapters in this book retell, or fill in between, events which occurred in “At All Costs.”

OK? That’s where you’re at when you come to this book, presumably after the long journey to here from “On Basilisk Station,” where the Honorverse began.

By this time you know, or should know, whether you want to go on with this increasingly complex, more than just space opera, more than just military sci-fi. If you’re still in the Honorverse, you’ll want this one; if you checked out, don’t come back here, because, again, this novel contains dialogue, interior monologue, political science, geek tech, and lots of other stuff you don’t want.

And I’m not all that sure the book, for all its length, is even necessary. It repeats the same ideas that were in “Shadow”—the Mesan Alliance is intent on provoking the Manties into a war with the Solarian League, and this time—while the mechanations and decision-making are up to Weber’s standard--the whole setup here seems a bit far fetched. It worked better the first time.

Now I can’t read the mind of the author, mind you, but to be completely honest, it appears to me that Weber first planned “Shadow” as a one-off, and then decided to incorporate the milieu into the timeline of the enitre Honorverse. In doing that, he opted to bring Michelle Henke, the nominal star of this novel, into the fray. And this time she is the defender of Talbot.

Then, too, this book is—in the worst sense—a bridge book. For one example, you will not find out here what happened to the terrorist Nordbrandt, so much a part of “Shadow,” although it is mentioned several times that she is continuing to operate. And the bridge is a long one. The last 200 or so of the novel's 1050 pages are designed to set up the third Talbot book, “Shadow of Freedom.” That tried my patience.

I have therefore given this novel four stars—the first Honorverse novel I’ve not given the full five to, and not only for the reasons I’ve mentioned. In addition, the author—a great creator of interesting characters—simply can’t write dialogue that distinguishes one character from another. And since the book has a “cast of thousands” (they’re listed in the back), this time that matters. A lot.

Notes and asides: One cannot play the Amazon review drinking game with “the ending was rushed,” as that certainly does not apply here, May I suggest “the author must have been paid by the word” instead. It’s a good way to vent, even though book authors are NOT paid by the word. They sign a contract promising to deliver book T, by date D, with a word count of W. Some actually come close.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Infernal internal dialog 13 septembre 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I found DW's books when Honor of the Queen was published. Found them at a grocery store no less in the book section. Talk about synchronicity. The universe was in alignment that day. On Basilisk and Honor of the Queen sitting side by side on the shelf. I vividly remember picking them up and Knowing! these were going to be good books. They did not disappoint in the slightest. And he kept going, Short Victorious War, Field of D, and Flag in Exile. Very good books and not slipping a bit. And still more to come. For that thank you very much Mr Weber. Hard for me to name a favorite of his first 7 books. I shoved his books at everyone in earshot at the time with a 95% thank you rate.

More of the same old (later books) rambling go nowhere musings of events we already read about. This is a different perspective but still nothing happens. The 20 pages of story in here are pretty good.

This reads like he is transcribing into a tape machine and having an intern type it up. Of course with no editing involved at all. A recent reviewer I read said that he indeed does transcribe to his computer and does it ever show. Don't know if it is true but sure does fit. His last Honorverse book even had some of this meandering internal dialog in his Honor story, a blooming short story too.

Another thing that bothers me about his later books is the unanswered question. "And what should I do about xxx" insert paragraph and page after page of musings and thought experiments with rambling topics then snap back to reality. And the question is never answered! I go back and skim it again. He did not answer the question! Why did you waste my time. Why did you waste my brain power holding that question waiting for the result. A payoff is expected for effort. Did you expect/want me to forget? This has happened more than once. I have noticed this is mainly a bad guy device. See: Mesa Sol League Pirate et al. Austin Powers mental mini me.

And now where I become critical. There is no way you are vetting editing or whatever you did in those books to make them so good. Reads like a true lack of effort. You can write a book about paint drying and still sell X amount of copies. You have reached that stage. And I think you are taking advantage of it, and it is your right to do so. And it is my right to condemn you for it. I hope it isn't a lack of respect for us readers. That we will buy whatever drivel you put out. I hope not because you already got paid and that means these books are over. I stopped automatically buying your books for a while now. Even the Honor books. Once you made it your books stayed hardback for a year or more (a very long time anyway, above average) and I still paid it with a smile. I remember struggling when you first started going hardback and had to wait for for paperback or scrimp for hardcover. I went hardcover. I was just getting started then. Those days are a few years gone. I don't even know the release order for the last 3-4 books. When I check in on your progress I have to decode the order and if I read it. That is so very wrong. I easily track my favorite authors, books, and order. They are so unremarkable I don't even remember the title. Kind of sad. I feel a personal connection to this universe. I'm not a fanboy just a really big fan, no really don't laugh. In the end I am a realist.

Honor, a fallen great one. This makes think he is being lazy. Vivid imagination rambling off the top of his head, and done. Next book.

I write this review as long time fan that was involved in the rise of Honor. I am owed nothing. Enjoyed the ride.
Thank you very much for the good ones. Few authors have your proven skills. Yes all good things do come to an end.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not much Harrington, but quite a bit of honor in this book. 18 novembre 2016
Par Crash and Burn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
It moves fairly slowly, but mostly because its some talking heads and terrorists trying to maintain the status quo, (in the Talbot Sector) vs others in the Talbot Sector plus Manticore trying to annex the Talbot sector.

This book fills in a gap in the Honor Harrington series. One book its the Manticore Kingdom, and the next, its the Manticore Empire. There is a one-sided space battle about 1/2 way through, and then its a long slog until the next space battle.

There is also some involvment from the Mesan Alignment.
