    That was disappointing. It was fine, but definitely didn't continue the trajectory of the first two books. And yes writing to a formula is bad, but writing messy isn't necessarily better. And what's with Travis and Lisa's relationship anyway - as written it doesn't ring true. Too compl...

    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. ...

    [July 22, 2018] This is the third installment of the Manticore Rising series and it was a pretty good space adventure. The struggling Star Kingdom of Manticore sends off two different ships in different directions to try to find out what they can about who recently attacked them. One ...

    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...

    I am quite enjoying this series about the early days of the star kingdom of Manticore. In this story as the title implies, Manticore is out for revenge against those who attacked it. They are also desperately trying to discover why some shadowy entity wants to conqueror the star kingdo...

    (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...

    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 ...

    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...

    About halfway through this book, I realized what bothered me so much about this series. I REALLY dislike Travis Long. He is an annoying character who feels like he should develop and grow, but never does. In the first book, it made sense for him to be hidebound and rules-obsessed, but ...

    David Weber, Timothy Zahn, and Thomas Pope continue their tale of Manticore centuries before Honor Harrington. The Manticore barely fought off an attack in the previous tale, and now it?s a matter of A Call to Vengeance(hard from Baen) by tracking down the mercenary admiral who led t...

    There is a problem with the Honor Harrington series --- Manticore is a huge and for the most part successful kingdom. A few hints have been dropped about a troubled past but not much else. With the Ascendant series we see a very young and na´ve Manticore with little if any strengths i...

    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...

    Apr 16, 2018
    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...

    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...

    With the third prequel of the series leading to the Honor Harrington series, David Weber and his co-authors, Timothy Zahn and Thomas Pope, have written their best novel yet. 'A Call to Vengeance' is the most action-packed and the most riveting characters. Lead characters Travis Lon...

    I preordered this for its original release date, and then again after the delay due to David's illness... so I was very much looking forward to it. The Manticore Ascendant series is a much lighter read than the main Honorverse series - hence the 48 hour read! As a result there's a bit ...

    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...
