Publisher's Summary

Rear Admiral Michelle Henke was commanding one of the ships in a force led by Honor Harrington in an all-out space battle. The odds were against the Star Kingdom forces, and they had to run. But Michelle's ship was crippled, and had to be destroyed to prevent superior Manticoran technology from falling into Havenite hands, and she and her surviving crew were taken prisoner. Much to her surprise, she was repatriated to Manticore, carrying a request for a summit conference between the leaders of the two sides which might end the war. But a condition of her return was that she gave her parole not to fight against the forces of the Republic of Haven until she had been officially exchanged for a Havenite prisoner of war, so she was given a command far away from the war's battle lines. What she didn't realize was that she would find herself on a collision course, not with a hostile government, but with the interstellar syndicate of criminals known as Manpower. And Manpower had its own plans for eliminating Manticore as a possible threat to its lucrative slave trade, deadly plans which remain hidden in the shadows.

Wandering Accents

I found this audio book difficult to enjoy. The story was excellent as always with Weber but the narrator's ridiculous female voices made it very difficult to follow conversations.

In one conversation between characters Abigail Hearns (he has chosen a straight RP accent for this character) and Helen Zilwicki (a horrible sounding sing-song irish lilt) the accents actually switched several times so each character was speaking with the others voice. There are many more instances of this and it is incredibly frustrating. It doesn't ruin the audiobook but it does make it a lot harder to follow.

I may get other David Weber audiobooks in future but only if they feature a different narrator

Great story, one or two slips in narration

A great story, but there were a few times when the narrator broke the spell - things like "Peep reJECTs" rather than "REjects" if you follow me.
