Mysterious Galaxy is thrilled to again host author David Weber. Hailed as a “science fiction powerhouse,” David has sold more than eight-million copies of his many books and has had so far thirty titles appear on the New York Times bestseller list. His newest title, Uncompromising Honor, is the nineteenth in his highly regarded Honor Harrington series. The “Mandarins,” bureaucrats who rule the Solarian League Navy, grow increasingly desperate as it becomes apparent that its navy’s is technologically inferior and its central government teeters on the brink of bankruptcy. In their desperation, they embrace a new strategy that leads to the worst atrocities seen in a thousand years, as well as the deaths of many of whom Honor Harrington loves. The supreme fleet commander will avenge them, bringing Hell with her in the process.

David Weber … at his best. A chance to meet old friends: Elisabeth III, Tom Thiesman, Hamish Alexander, Anton Zilwicki, and Honor and Nimitz, among many others; and to make new friends, Fire Watch, Plays with Fire, and More. As the story progresses, David reacquaints us with the villains: The corrupt, colony-crushing, juggernaut war-machine of the Solley Mandarins, the Machiavellian interstellar manipulations of the genetic slave-trading Mesan Alignment and its secret masters, the genetically-enhanced Detweiler clone-clan.
David’s last few books were short – for David – and anti-climactic. Not so Uncompromising Honor; it gathers the multiple threads and subplots from prior staging and slowly weaves them into a building crescendo, ending in what can only be described as a David Weber Climax. Mandarin entrenched bureaucratic reflexes and ruthless machinations of the Mesan Alignment drive the plot through heart-stopping but mathematically precise space battles, and galactic-scale intrigue and treachery, to the unexpected but powerful grand climax. The story, however, is not finished; it is ready to go in new, unexpected, and interesting directions that readers must impatiently wait for. – Guest Reviewer Eric Lowenhaupt
