Honor in Trouble: - Having made him look a fool, she's been exiled to Basilisk Station in disgrace and set up for ruin by a superior who hates her. - Her demoralized crew blames her for their ship's humiliating posting to an out-of-the-way picket station. - The aborigines of the system's only habitable planet are smoking homicide-inducing hallucinogens. - Parliament isn't sure it wants to keep the place; the major local industry is smuggling; the merchant cartels want her head; the star-conquering, so-called "Republic" of Haven is Up To Something; and Honor Harrington has a single, over-age light cruiser with an armament that doesn't work to police the entire star system. But the people out to get her have made one mistake. They've made her mad.… (más)

    Dragget: There are some differences, but both of these are good military SF.

Both, however, focus the main characters' problem-solving and follow them as they rise to various military and diplomatic challenges.… (más)

The Mary Sue'ing is strong in this series. But it is still a lovely little space opera. The science bits seems to be glued on to fulfill the 'science' bit of science fiction, but in reality it serves most as wish-fulfilment.
Honor is an officer in the Royal Manticoran space forces, and she is being set up to fail on an impossible mission by her peers. She saves the day against impossible odds, and endears herself to everybody she meets - except the evil, evil people whose dastardly plans she foils. Oh - and she is a lot more beautiful than she thinks herself, so there is that as well. Beauty and brain, and becomingly humble about it all. Still, as an occasionally reread, it is a nice and satisfying few hours to spend. ( )

Enjoyed again on re-read. Did note that there are some minor visual quirks in this version, common to a lot of older stories hastily formatted in the earlier days of e-books. Mostly just less space than would now be expected between some POV transitions. Nothing too disruptive. ( )

If you enjoy military-sci-fi, and you haven't read Weber's Harrington books, then you are in for a real treat --- start with this one.

When Honor Harrington pisses off the wrong person she is sent to Basilisk Station, a dingy planet where the navy sends people to keep them out of the way and a cushy place for people to goof off. However, they sent the wrong person over since Honor isn't going to do anything less then her job.
I love Honor and Nimitz and the plot. I love competency porn and Honor and her crew are exactly that. The world David Weber builds is complete but also has room to grow. I am definitely continuing the series. ( )

(First read in June 2009)

It's been a long time since I returned to the beginning of this series, which is one of my favorite in the mil-sf genre and I believe the first of that genre that I'd ever read. Honor becomes quite the grande dame as the series goes on, so it was nice to revisit her as a young commander taking on her first captaincy of a ship big enough to have a name.

In some ways, I think this is the weakest of the series in terms of having little plot other than "let's recreate Queen Victoria's navy in space with gender egalitarianism." But it's as strong as any of the others in terms of character, which is the fundamental theme of the entire series, and a good introduction to Honor's character, virtues, strengths, and weaknesses.

And it's significantly stronger, to my tastes at least, for the relative paucity of detailed descriptions of weaponry and space battles.

The one thing that jarred me this time through was the casual racism of the language used to describe the natives of the planet. I really don't need 19th century level racism along with my 19th century Victorian navy in space. And it was very odd to see casual racism alongside such gender egalitarianism.

Aside from that, though, I enjoyed the re-read enough that I've decided to re-read the rest of the series. ( )
