The tide has been running against humankind and its allies. Fourth, the ending is a shocker. When you take all that interesting stuff away you get Brothers in Valor. The bulk of the book is involved in a daring and dangerous mission or two missions, really behind enemy lines. I can just see people wandering into the room to get David Brin to autograph their books and wondering who the hell the fat guy is in the corner. English was not the cradle tongue of either of her parents, and all four of her grandparents primarily spoke Cajun French.
Because of setting the book up as a war piece there is actually very little in the way of character development or advancement. Sahin, chief medical officer and special ambassador, adds good humor with his side comments and views from a nonmilitary aspect. I would love to meet as many of my readers as I can when I am there, so please try to attend if possible. Although it means they may end up stranded with the enemy they have to take the risk to capture a key leader to have a chance of stopping the war. Honsinger currently lives in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, with his beloved wife, Kathleen, and stepson, Chris, as well as two highly eccentric cats. I enjoyed the book immensely and I certainly hope that Mr.
Sent on a covert mission behind enemy lines, Max and his crew are poised to strike a blow so hard that, if successful, it could turn the tide of the war. I, we all here i can speak for, hope you are well. Quite early in the book there are some great space combat and Max gets himself both in and out of some serious pickle. And I can't wait for Book 4. In addition the ending was frustrating. There are no tasty morsels about Vaach or Krag origins, nothing to keep me thinking about this book for weeks to come.
This Space Marine Sci Fi provides great entertainment. Max is a great character who comes up with ingenious tactical solutions and is willing to trust his crew to know their jobs and make effective suggestions. Ibrahim Sahin at his side as ship's surgeon, adviser, and friend, must use all his skill to defeat the enemy, only to find that Admiral Hornmeyer has an even more challenging mission for the destroyer and her intrepid crew. Brothers in Valor really ramps up the action compared to the previous Man of War novels. Honsinger masterfully blends the classic 'ripping yarn' style of 18th and 19th century naval warfare with a technically sophisticated grasp of modern sci-fi and modern naval warfare. This book reads like Master and Commander on the Far side of the World in space, with a mix of Red October. This gives a lot of insight into the culture and the way they think, making it one of the best chapters of the book.
I highly recommend reading this book and the next one also. Despite waiting what seemed to be an interminably long time for book 3 to be released I'm glad to say it was worth it. Mike liked it a lot or, perhaps, spared my feelings by telling me that he did , shot me back a few more suggestions that I pulled an all-nighter to implement in 20 hours of straight work, and shot back to him. Sent on a covert mission behind enemy lines, Max and his crew are poised to strike a blow so hard that, if successful, it could turn the tide of the war. Oh, and one more thing, not only is Admiral Birch hopping from star system to star system in an armed convoy, there is a very good chance that the whole mission is an elaborate trap designed to destroy the Cumberland and kill its promising new commander. With Honsinger working on another trilogy, I cannot wait to see where Robichaux and his crew go next. The near-constant warfare does make this book feel shorter; and it is shorter too, with a noticeably lower page count than the other two.
Expect it to appear in a later book, in a separately issued novella, or some other place. For the past couple books I was able to put aside my distaste for the writing because the overarching story that was being told was actually pretty cool, the war with the krag, humanity's various independent nations, the alien races, pretty much all the sci-fi stuff was all interesting, it just kinda got drowned out by all the info dumping and anachronistic dialog. It is still gravely deficient however, in that the participant list still does not include the brilliant and scintillating H. Sure the battles were fun, the jokes funny, and the book enjoyable, but it just didn't quite feel the same. Brothers in Valor is the third novel in his Man of War series, which also includes To Honor You Call Us and For Honor We Stand. I will go out on a limb here and say, unlike most other reviewers, I didn't exactly like, but I did appreciate, the ending. He also has to manage a few challenges to his authority.
Please abide by the group rules, which I consider entirely reasonable as I wrote them, I suppose I would. The action starts as Max has to help the ship and crew escape from overwhelming odds. Still worth a read but quite disappointing after the long wait and the higher quality of the first two self-published books and th Not quite as well-written as the first two in the series. All three volumes of the trilogy are now in print, issued by 47North Press, a Division of Amazon Publications. This third book is closer to full-on war with Robichaux and his crew jumping from one battle to the next. Especially given the ending which leaves Max and his crew in quite a bit of a mess.
