The Mesan Alignment is revealed, and for Honor Harrington and the Manticoran Star Kingdom, this means war!

Unintended Consequences

Sometimes things don't work out exactly as planned.

The Mesan Alignment has a plan - one it's been working on for centuries. A plan to remake the galaxy and genetically improve the human race - its way.

Until recently things have gone pretty much as scheduled, but then the Alignment hit a minor bump in the road called the Star Empire of Manticore. So the Alignment engineered a war between the Solarian League, the biggest and most formidable interstellar power in human history. To help push things along, the Alignment launched a devastating sneak attack that destroyed the Royal Manticoran Navy's industrial infrastructure.

And in order to undercut Manticore's galaxy-wide reputation as a star nation of its word, it launched Operation Janus - a false-flag covert operation to encourage rebellions it knows will fail by promising Manticoran support. The twin purposes are to harden Solarian determination to destroy the Star Empire once and for all and to devastate the Star Empire's reputation with the rest of the galaxy.

But even the best laid plans can have unintended consequences, and one of those consequences in this case may just be a new dawn of freedom for oppressed star nations everywhere.

Parallel Story to the last three books

After enjoying the last book I was looking forward to how the story would evolve in this book. Sadly, I had to encounter that the timeline of this book starts about three books in the past. It deals with the story of the Talbert cluster and the work of Firebrand to undermine he credibility of the Manties. During the course of the book there are several time jumps which come without any explanation.
After 3/4 of the book, we arrive relatively close to the current events of last book, ending about 5 hours after the last. I do not want to spoil too much for people who have not listened that far, that's why I choose these vague and strange wordings.

In total the only annoying thing is the continues usage of Czech terms when the book continues a story of Czech origin. After the use of a Czech word, it is always translated. This probably is good, but I gave me a bad feeling. Why not use the English word in the first place.
this book is no a waist but I can not understand why I was not written right after the Talbert clusters book and the rest of the side stories that explain more about the events that lead to the finally were split. It felt to me that only about the last third of the book was really fitting the point we were left of at the last book.

I would recommend to listen to this book right after the book at the Talbert cluster and stop it about 2/3 in, than continue with the other books and come back to it after the last.

Good book - challenged narrator

The narrator makes a horrible hash out of non-English names and term - of which there are many in this book.
Collins is a quite good narrator as long as the language is 100% English.
However, non-English terms (e.g. lots of Slavic terms and names in this book) get pronounciated and spoken completely out of the normal flow of sentence and language.
This makes for a quite disruptive listening experience...

Allyson Johnson was way better

Great story but after all other stories being read by Allyson Johnson the new speaker sounds strange.
