I was very disappointed with this book. I'm not generally into military SF, so maybe... this sub-genre is okay with page upon interminable page of exposition? I resorted to skimming in order to make it through the textbook-like passages. I liked Honor, would have enjoyed the treecat if it had played a more active role, and enjoyed watching Fearless's crew "coming around." Ultimately, this book fell completely flat for me, and I was thrilled to finally find the last page.

I love David Weber because of this book. A fabulous start to a truly AWESOM series.
