The first story in the collection is “By The Book” by Charles Gannon is set earlier in the Honoverse than other stories about 1609 years before Honor’s birth. It is a story about Lt. Lee strong of the Custom Patrol of the Earth Union. “Call to Arms” by Zahn gives background behind the attempt takeover of the Manticore Binary system by the Axelrod Corporation. Lead character is Lt. Travis Long. “Beauty and the Beast” by Weber is one of the stories I enjoyed the most and is about the meeting of Honor’s parents when they were students in medical school on Beowulf. It also gives some background information about both Alfred Harrington and Allison Chou. “Best Laid Plans” by Weber is the other story I enjoyed the most is about how 14 year old Honor meets and bonds with Nimitz. “Obligated Service” by Joelle Presby is about Clair one of the first women of Grayson to graduate from Saganami Island Academy. The story is mainly about the resistance of Grayson men to accept women in the Grayson Navy. Each story had a different narrator who did a good job narrating the stories.

the only stories I seriously enjoyed were the ones about Honor and Nimitz and to a lesser extent the story about her parents. the male performers were mostly dull but Allyson hit it out of the park as always. It's a shame the story I enjoyed the most (Honor and Nimitz "The Best Laid Plans") was the shortest.
