Publisher's Summary

No one wanted another war.Thomas Theisman didn't. After risking his life and a fresh round of civil war to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety's reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven's ancient Constitution, an interstellar war was the last thing he wanted. Baron High Ridge didn't. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and as long as he could spin out negotiations on the formal treaty of peace, his government could continue to milk all those "hostilities only" tax measures for their own partisan projects.His Imperial Majesty Gustav didn't. Now that the fighting between the Star Kingdom and the Havenites had ended, the Andermani Emperor had his own plans for Silesia, and he was confident he could achieve them without a war of his own. Protector Benjamin didn't. His people had made too deep a commitment to the Manticoran Alliance, in blood as well as treasure, for him to want to risk seeing it all thrown away. And Honor Harrington certainly didn't. The "Salamander" had seen the inside of too many furnaces already, knew too much about how much war cost.Unfortunately, what they wanted didn't matter...

I've loved all af the Honor Harrington books I've read before this. Unfortunately I was quite dissapointed by this one. The narration and production quality were excellent.

However. When I finally got to the end and heard in the END credits that it was an abridgement I'd been listening to I realised why I wasn't satisfied with this book.

I'll be going back and reading the full-length dead-tree version to get the real story and put this cut-down version behind me.

In the future I'm afraid I'll have to assume titles are Abridged unless stated otherwise. If only the assumption could be made the otherway round: 'Unabridged, unless otherwise stated'.
