This book was a disappointment for me. This book is 700+ pages of slow moving overcomplicated plot with so many different characters, each described and talking, talking, talking for hundreds and hundreds of pages, that it is almost unreadable.

So when Travis enlisted in the Royal Manticoran Navy, he thought he’d finally found the structure he’d always wanted … Continue reading A Call to Duty – Good but not great addition to the Honorverse
