Publisher's Summary

For eight bloody years, the Star Kingdom of Manticore and its allies have taken the war to the vastly more powerful People's Republic of Haven, and Commodore Honor Harrington has been in the forefront of that war. But now Honor has fallen, captured by the Peep Navy, turned over to the forces of State Security - and executed on the interstellar network's nightly news. The Manticoran Alliance is stunned and infuriated by Honor's death and grimly resolved to avenge it. But its military is over-extended and the People's Republic is poised to take the offensive once more. The war is about to enter a phase of unprecedented ferocity, and the Alliance is on the short end of the stick. But even as powerful Peep fleets hurtle towards their objectives, neither they nor the Alliance are aware of events occurring on a distant, isolated, inescapable prison planet called Hell. For what no one knows, not even State Security, is that Honor Harrington is not dead. She and a handful of her people are trapped on Hell, and determined to disprove the Peep boast that no one can ever escape it. Honor Harrington is going home, and taking her people with her - even if she has to conquer Hell to do it.
A Note from Author David Weber
There's been some confusion—not to say, um, energetic debate, readers and fans being readers and fans—about the correct pronunciation of "Manticoran." The truth, alas, is that a stitch was dropped. An error occurred. A mistake was made… and it wasn't Audible's fault. It was mine. Before Audible recorded the very first Honor Harrington book, narrator Allyson Johnson and I not only corresponded by e-mail but actually spoke to one another by phone. She wanted to make absolutely certain she had the correct pronunciations for names, places, star nations, etc., and I tried to make certain all of her questions were answered. And so they were. Unfortunately, at some point in the process, I replied to one of her e-mails by telling her that "Man-ti-core-ahn" was pronounced "Man-tik-er-ahn." Exactly how this happened is more than I can say at this point, except to blushingly disclose that the original e-mail remains intact, confirming to all the world that it was, indeed, my fault. I can ascribe it only to a temporary mental hiccup on my part and crave your forgiveness. If, however, you must blame someone for the mix-up, that someone should be me and not Audible, who have done everything they could to get it right.

What the Critics Say

"[Echoes of Honor] produces its usual quota of high drama, political intrigue, and military adventure set in a richly detailed far future. This example of space opera at its very best belongs in most sf collections." (Library Journal)
"It is impossible not to be entertained, delighted, even enthralled by this splendid piece of storytelling." (Booklist)

Honor Harrington Universe Book 11

The whole Star Alliance Mourns for Honor Harrington
Manticarans Swore to Execute all State Security (SS)
Grayson's Swore Blood Vengeance "For Lady Harrington and NO MERCY"!!!!!!
The war continues.

Meanwhile on hell nothing ever will be the same.
The point of any prison is to contain maximum number of prisoners with the least number of guards.
This means that prisoners always outnumber guards!!!!
Try to Imagine Honor's thoughts on this topic.


PS
IMHO one of the best books in the series.

NEXT BOOK IS " Ashes of Victory "
