My reason for doing so is that I read them out of order before, and I wanted to re read them in order to get a sense of the continuity of the story.
For the most part, I appreciated them more the second time around, although my objections to some of the ones toward the end of the series wasn't fundamentally changed. I do have to say that this doesn't apply to 'Storm From the Shadows,' which I disliked. I also have to add that Parker, my second son, tells me that I'm flat out wrong. All that being said, I had missed 'Shadow of Saganami. Its cover does say it's a 'New Series. However, this series does introduce major incidents that are part of the "main" series and its characters appear in the main series.
So, after having reread ALL of the Honor books twice, I realized I really had to read the Saganami books to understand the whole series. It's excellent; the idea of following the fate of a group of cadets works very well as a dramatic device.

The book also introduces another captain, Aivers Terekok, who is as good a strategist as Honor Harrington but who is also an interesting, complex, somewhat damaged person. Very, very well done. Plus, since Honor has become the equivalent of a four or five star Admiral, she's lost the ability to command a solo ship on her own Admirals don't do such things. While this is believable because competent admirals do "move up," Honors believable growth as a character has hampered the series ironic, but true. The introduction of Terekov allows Weber to reintroduce some good butt kicking space opera to one of his major characters.
Good stuff. Nov 23, Oni rated it really liked it Shelves: science-fiction , space-opera.
Series by cover
This novel is another spin-of from the Honor Harrington series. It is telling the story of the new cadets of the Royal Manticoran Navy in their first cruise. All of them are expected to follow the example of Edward Saganami, the name inscribed in their academy. The story has the same feel as the original series, even without seeing Honor Harrington in the center of the action.
Maybe it is not so surprising because it is indeed written by David Weber himself unlike the Torch series which is the c This novel is another spin-of from the Honor Harrington series. Maybe it is not so surprising because it is indeed written by David Weber himself unlike the Torch series which is the collaboration between David Weber and Eric Flint, which gives a different taste. As you can expect from a decent Honor Harrington series, the novel included lots of political intrigue; this time it is about international diplomacy. The entire events is initiated by the discovery of Lynx terminus, linking the Manticoran system with the Talbot Cluster.
What supposed to be an easy assignment unexpectedly turned into a major interstellar incident. All of these will test whether he and his entire crew is actually following the shadow of Edward Saganami or not. The naval battle, as always, is as brutal as it can be. The enemy is cunning, ruthless, and unpredictable. The homefront is also not as helpful as it can be, being crippled by the previous idiot Highridge government. It is going to be an ultimate test of skill, technology and especially the human spirit.
It is a thoroughly exciting reading, from the beginning to the end, especially when you are already a fan of Honor Harrington series. If your are not, it does not hurt also, because this book is the first book a new series. Knowing the Honorverse is of course helpful, especially to catch up with the basic vocabulary, but even if you don't, you can always check on the glossary in the Internet.
Jan 03, Dan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Quite good! Jun 29, Steve Pierce rated it really liked it. Loved it. I can see this spinoff of the main series really going somewhere. Well worth reading.

Must be in a bad mood tonight because this is the second book I've given a mere two stars, and it too isn't Actually poorly written, nor does it suffer major plot holes, awkward dialog, or any of the other major deficiencies of most books I rate so harshly. IMHO "Saganami" should be read first: it does not contain spoilers for "All Costs," while the reverse is not Must be in a bad mood tonight because this is the second book I've given a mere two stars, and it too isn't Actually poorly written, nor does it suffer major plot holes, awkward dialog, or any of the other major deficiencies of most books I rate so harshly.
Also, Crown of Slaves should apparently be read before either one: Weber was actually compelled to give a plot synopsis of it via a character in "Saganami! I am probably in serious Weber overdose, 'cause this is hardly a new problem of his, but this one really took Work to get into: hundreds of pages before the plot started happening instead of just getting carefully, painstakingly, Boringly set up. Yeah, it paid off in the end with one of his signature battle scenes: in the face of terrible odds, terrific bravery, honor, and better tech wins the day.
And as much as I can get bored, I do actually enjoy his little essays on comparative governments - it's amusing and even a little convicting to read between the lines when he's describing a system that obviously shares roots with our own.
So, devotees to the series must read this one, and I am sure I'll read the next few myself. I'm not willing to give up on the Honorverse the way I did with Robert Jordan 's "Wheel of Time" some decades ago: at least Weber's stories are on the whole positive and redemptive! MAY - One of the problems with the Honorverse series is figuring out where a book fits in.
Is this part of the mainline Honorverse with only a brief glimpse of Honor herself or a new subseries, or At any rate, this book picks up with the new Talbot Cluster, where the most recently discovered wormhole from Manticore leads. Even as Manticore is stretched thin fighting off the new war with Haven, the systems of the Talbot Cluster have applied to become part of the new Empire of Manticore, MAY - One of the problems with the Honorverse series is figuring out where a book fits in.
Even as Manticore is stretched thin fighting off the new war with Haven, the systems of the Talbot Cluster have applied to become part of the new Empire of Manticore, rather than be absorbed by the Solarian League And into that, comes the HMS Hexapuma, a heavy cruiser commanded by a heroic captain possibly still traumatized by a previous wartime incident, and crewed by a variety of people we've seen before, but also some brand new midshipmen, fresh from the Academy at Saganami Island.
It's all plenty of fun, and soap opera, and space opera, and drama, and pathos, and politics, and stereotypes, and looming menace. In some ways it's a fine leaping on point for new readers, but it still suffers from far-too-convenient division of the world between Good Guys and Bad Guys, and conflicts that resolve themselves through the Bad Guys being evil and mean and stupid, and the Good Guys being good and noble and smart.

But, dagnabbit, it's still a fun read. Apr 12, Vickey Foggin rated it it was ok Shelves: sci-fi , space-opera. I have been referring to this book as the Talbott Clusterfuck.
This is the worst of the Honorverse books I have read so far. The idea of following some of Honor's top students as they begin their careers is good but the execution is terrible. I really struggled through this one--it took me 2 weeks and these normally take me 2 days to read. There are just too many characters, too many planets, and none of them are really unique enough to make them interesting. Some stand out but most just blur to I have been referring to this book as the Talbott Clusterfuck. Some stand out but most just blur together.

Some of those might be systems or planets or cities, I can't really remember. I will read the second one in hopes that now that the setup is done the story and character development can progress, but I don't have high hopes for this spinoff. Jun 20, Dj rated it really liked it. Another of David Weber's breakaway Honorverse books. This one again mostly ignores Honor Harrington, the mainstay character of almost all of the previous books. This one moves the focus to a new area of space where the Kingdom of Manticore has been asked to take the new planets under their protection in an Annexation.
