The Honor Harrington Series (II)

by David Weber

Honor Among Enemies; In Enemy Hands

A book review by Elisabeth Carey

Weber's using a better grade of cardboard for some of his villains, at least; Hauptmann seems to be made of lightly corrogated cardboard. And Ransom is at least a stiffer grade, not the soggy kind he was using before. Most of the Peep naval officers are even made of the same grade of cardboard as the lesser characters among the Manticorans and the Graysons.

I will confess to being a sucker for the treecats. I'll forgive a lot for the treecats, and their new program of colonizing other worlds.

And the last hundred pages of In Enemy Hands is surely one of the best escapes in adventure fiction.
