By David Weber, Timothy Zahn and Thomas Pope I am hoping that this new book in the series lives up the to first two, and expect it will. The Manticore Ascendant series is a prequel series to David Weber’s multiple New York Times best-selling Honor Harrington series.
After the disastrous attack on the Manticoran home system by forces unknown, the Royal Manticoran Navy stands on the brink of collapse. A shadowy enemy with the resources to hurl warships across hundreds of light years seeks to conquer the Star Kingdom for reasons unknown, while forces from within Manticore’s own government seek to discredit and weaken the Navy for reasons very much known: their own political gain.
It’s up to officers like Travis Long and Lisa Donnelly to defend the Star Kingdom and the Royal Manticoran Navy from these threats, but the challenge is greater than any they have faced before.
