Book Note: David Weber, In Enemy Hands

I read this book about 8-Aug-2007. I've read this book before. The book is copyright 1997. This note was last modified Saturday, 16-Apr-2016 20:09:24 PDT.

This is book 7 of the "Honor Harrington" series.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


I seem to have skipped one, mostly accidentally. But I guess I'll finish this one.

Honor and her crew are captured by the Peeps, and have the bad luck to run into Cordelia Ransom making a front-areas inspection tour. Honor is grabbed and sent off to Cerberus to be executed, and the others are sent to prison there.

But the others manage to break out, rescue Honor, steal shuttles from the ship, blow it up, and escape down to the surface of the planet without anybody noticing.

It doesn't bother me, but it's a bit strange that Honor is essentially a passenger most of this book. Since she's isolated from the others, it's pretty much a plot necessity.

Oh, and Nimitz gets badly injured in this book. For that matter, Honor loses an arm, too, and has her prosthetic eye and facial nerves burned out.
