    The events in this third entry into the Manticore Ascendant series follow closely on the events of book 2. The Royal Manticoran Navy is trying to pick up the pieces remaining after the battle with pirates was won and the politicians, especially Lord Breakwater, are trying to further re...

    A solid continuation of the "prequel" Series set early in the Kingdom of Manticore's History. although I must say that Travis Uriah Long has become pretty boring, compared to his first appearances where he was constantly grating against expectations and social mores, meaning I much ...

    This is book three in the Manticore Ascendant series. This series is a prequel to the Honor Harrington saga. This one is by David Weber, Timothy Zahn and Thomas Pope. This book is simply a great read. It is a fine example of Space Opera/Military Science Fiction. Travis Long and Lisa Do...

    Been waiting quite a while for the third book in the Manticore Acsending prequel series to David Weber's Honorverse and was happy to see it up on the Baen Publishing eARC page. Because this is a co-authored series with Timothy Zahn and Thomas Pope is doesn't suffer from the usual Weber...

    Third and last in the Manticore Ascendant science fiction military soap opera series, a prequel in the Honorverse, revolving around the kingdom of Manticore, as we follow the career of Lieutenant Travis Uriah Long, and introducing us to the start of Elizabeth II?s reign in 1544 PD. ...

    Second half is much much much better than the first half. In fact, the second half is so much better it almost makes the awful first half palatable. Almost. ...

    Manticore is under attack. In the previous book, Manticore was attacked by mercenary forces, who were in an exciting battle, defeated. But at great cost to the Manticore Navy. Travis Long is now a Lieutenant in the RMN, and played an important role, as tactical officer, in defeating th...

    Read on I may never get tired of this series. Having Hung on all the books of the Honorverse we are now in the prequel Stages- this being the third in a series with Travis Long as the central protagonist. The Honorverse series is still spinning out of control in the future but this...

    (Volume 3 of "Manticore Ascendant") In two previous books, Travis Long has demonstrated his freak talent for tactics by saving the day in several battles. In this book, he demonstrates his freak talent for tactics by saving the day in a couple of battles - though in one case he actu...

    This is what David Weber does best, military space opera. His Honor Harrington series was probably the first real space opera that I read. I liked it greatly and Weber has stayed as one of my favorite authors of military science fiction ever since. His latest works have frequently s...

    Definitely a step down in this series. The space battles aren't as exciting as the ones in the previous two books, but are just as long. The political intrigue is a step up, but there isn't enough of it, and it fizzles out strongly at the end (embarrassing information about two of Brea...

    A Call to Vengeance kicks off after the previous book with Travis and Lisa back on Manticore! :D At the same time Breakwater is up to his political games! :D As the story progresses the reader gets put through the ringer again as one disaster after another seems to strike the Royal Fam...

    I wasn't as excited about this as other reviewers. The storylines didn't seem to intersect well, and while the battles were conclusive the personal development was largely through telling rather than showing. ...

    Very cool addition to the series This book gives you a good rollercoaster ride and as it has it's ups and downs and continues the excellent character development from the other books and i really enjoyed the story and can not wait for the next one in the series ...

    Nicely crafted. The ongoing characters remain engaging. Some of the loose ends of the series get tied up, but there is clear opening for a fourth book in the series. I can only hope the lag between books 2 and 3 is not representative of what we can expect this time around! It is not...

    I had hopes that this would be a quick series to read in between Weber's main storylines, but the authors seem bent on another long series. It's some six months after the events of the last book. The Royal Manticoran Navy is reeling from the aftermath of the attack on the home system....

    In many ways this is a typical David Weber book, there is a great story, but it is just too long winded. To be fair, it is better than some of the recent Honor Harrington books, but I just wish he would get to the point. The book develops slowly as several different storylines gradu...

    Another good book in the Honor Harrington universe. Unfortunately I?m starting to find this series a little repetitive and just repeating the formula set out in the first two. Where?s the connection to the overall universe? These are supposed to be a prequel series that gives great...

    Thoroughly fun read that hit all the high points of the previous two books. Would have rated this a five star book if I had not thought I was reading the 3rd book of a trilogy but turned out to a book that moved the story a certain distance but was not the ending I has hoped for. 4...

    Third in the prequel series to the Honor Harrington saga. Manticore is a young kingdom, still forming traditions in government and navy. It has been targeted by a corporation that wants control of the newly discovered wormhole to Manticorean space--which Manticore doesn't know about ye...

    Satisfying space opera Weber has this formula down pat. He sets up a half dozen plot lines, keeps them all interesting, the juggles them well. It keeps my interest up very well. It is clearly the third book in the series. The reader is warned to approach them in order. (About 7% of ...

    Superb Weber delivers again. The tale conveying the birth of Manticore and the Manticore Navy is entertaining and engrossing. Who was the genius before Harrington? The politics of Manticore remain the same, but new allies (both official and unofficial) and new threats. Great read. ...

    A collaboration of three great writers? Where can you go wrong? What one misses, the others pick up and run with it. I will say that space opera science fiction is primarily defined by its VILLAINS rather than their heroes (or anit-heroes, as the case may be), and ACtV does not disappo...

    Great story line! Not just action. Well built story line, good character development. Well written, but still missing the days when one of the sacred responsibilities of a good editor was ensuring proof reading was thorough. This book is better than most, but still had annoyingly ...

    Very good addition to the world that Honor Harrington eventually lives in. Nice to know the general details of the earlier days of Manticore before the Basilisk wormhole discovery. Easy to like the characters. Highly recommended. Hoping for the series to live long. ...

    Pretty good third volume in this prequel series, but a slight disappointment on technical grounds - it was announced more than a year ago, so there was some initial confusion about whether it would come out in 2017 or 2018. But despite the long lead time the proof reading wasn't as goo...

    Weber is, and remains, the undisputed master of mil-fi. But, oh boy, does he stretches his books. Even a collaboration with no less than 2 authors has plot barely advancing, minor milestones crossed, and what I expected to be a good enjoyable prequel trilogy looking like it's going ...

    Not bad. This series is a lot more approachable than the most recent entries in the main Harrington series. And I'd guess either Weber agrees or his co-authors on this series are pushing the pace, because these books have been popping out the way Honor books did back in the day. An...
