A Note from Author David Weber
There's been some confusion—not to say, um, energetic debate, readers and fans being readers and fans—about the correct pronunciation of "Manticoran." The truth, alas, is that a stitch was dropped. An error occurred. A mistake was made… and it wasn't Audible's fault. It was mine. Before Audible recorded the very first Honor Harrington book, narrator Allyson Johnson and I not only corresponded by e-mail but actually spoke to one another by phone. She wanted to make absolutely certain she had the correct pronunciations for names, places, star nations, etc., and I tried to make certain all of her questions were answered. And so they were. Unfortunately, at some point in the process, I replied to one of her e-mails by telling her that "Man-ti-core-ahn" was pronounced "Man-tik-er-ahn." Exactly how this happened is more than I can say at this point, except to blushingly disclose that the original e-mail remains intact, confirming to all the world that it was, indeed, my fault. I can ascribe it only to a temporary mental hiccup on my part and crave your forgiveness. If, however, you must blame someone for the mix-up, that someone should be me and not Audible, who have done everything they could to get it right.
"It is impossible not to be entertained, delighted, even enthralled by this splendid piece of storytelling." ( Booklist)

Echoes of Honor
I am enjoying this series can hardly stand to put the story down. Echoes of Honor kept me holding on by my finger tips as she takes two years to escape the prison island. Her leadership ability bringing all the various people that have been in prison from various planets was interesting to watch. The battle scenes were great. Honor is beginning to remind me of Admiral H. Nelson of the British Navy. First the lost of an eye, now an arm what next? Allyson Johnson does a great job reading the series. She is Honor to me now. Can not wait to start the next book in the series.

Probably the best or top 3 of series
The Harrington series are great except sometimes they drag on a little for me because the narrator is not the best, I've grown to know her as the voice of Honor but she is not one of my favorite female narrators. This book has action of all forms, like a space seal its on land, sea, & air/space... If you have read the prince Roger series, I think that is the best series by this Weber & just like with this series there are suppose to be more to come.
This particular book is such a great shot in the mouth to all the different antagonist's Honor has, & there are many, she is assumed dead which is not a spoiler obviously but the way she ultimately gets back home & the manner she does it can only bring a smile to your face. With many of her books there are at least a few sections I speed up a bit because frankly, its a bit slow.... but this book is one crazy ride & I did not skip anything, I replayed certain parts because of the entertainment the author paints with characters & situations that are solved, or terminated.... with Extreme Prejudice! Great read, highly recommend this book. You should read at least the last 2 books before this one but if you read this for the first time you would not be too confused, Weber rarely lets down
