What price victory? The war with the Republic of Haven has resumed... disastrously for the Star Kingdom of Manticore. Admiral Lady Dame Honor Harrington, Steadholder and Duchess Harrington, the single victorious Allied commander of the opening phase of the new war, has been recalled from the Sidemore System to command Eighth Fleet. Everyone knows Eighth Fleet is the Alliance´s primary offensive command, which makes it the natural assignment for the woman the media calls ´´the Salamander.´´ But what most of the public DOESN´T know is that not only are the Star Kingdom and its Allies badly outnumbered by the Republic´s new fleet, but that the odds are going to get steadily worse. Eighth Fleet´s job is to somehow prevent those odds from crushing the Alliance before the Star Kingdom can regain its strategic balance. It´s a job which won´t be done cheaply. Honor Harrington must meet her formidable responsibilities with inferior forces even as she copes with tumultuous changes in her personal and public life. The alternative to victory is total defeat, yet this time the COST of victory will be agonizingly high. A Note from Author David Weber There´s been some confusion—not to say, um, energetic debate, readers and fans being readers and fans—about the correct pronunciation of ´´Manticoran.´´ The truth, alas, is that a stitch was dropped. An error occurred. A mistake was made… and it wasn´t Audible´s fault. It was mine. Before Audible recorded the very first Honor Harrington book, narrator Allyson Johnson and I not only corresponded by e-mail but actually spoke to one another by phone. She wanted to make absolutely certain she had the correct pronunciations for names, places, star nations, etc., and I tried to make certain all of her questions were answered. And so they were. Unfortunately, at some point in the process, I replied to one of her e-mails by telling her that ´´Man-ti-core-ahn´´ was pronounced ´´Man-tik-er-ahn.´´ Exactly how... 1. Language: English.

No one wanted another war. Thomas Theisman didn´t. Not after risking his life to overthrow the Committee of Public Safety´s reign of terror and restore the Republic of Haven´s ancient Constitution. Baron High Ridge didn´t. The Prime Minister of Manticore was perfectly happy with the war he had. No one was shooting anyone else at the moment, and his government could continue to milk all those ´´hostilities only´´ tax measures for their own partisan projects. His Imperial Majesty Gustav didn´t. Now that the fighting between the Star Kingdom and the Havenites had ended, the Andermani Emperor had his own plans for Silesia. Protector Benjamin didn´t. His people had made too deep a commitment to the Manticoran Alliance to risk seeing it all thrown away. And Honor Harrington certainly didn´t. The Salamander knew too much about how much war cost. Unfortunately, what they wanted didn´t matter....

Ready or not, Kris and the other trainees are recalled to the dangerous metropolis of San Angeles. But their transport is shot down and Ian Miller, the man she loves, is captured. Someone, it seems, is using him to get to Kris.

Rosa never thought she´d make it to 16.... When being unique puts you in danger and speaking your mind can be punishable by death, you might find yourself fighting to survive. Sixteen-year-old Rosa lives in one of the eight enclosed cities of The Woodlands. Where the lone survivors of a devastating race war have settled in the Russian wilderness because it´s the only scrap of land left habitable on the planet. In these circular cities, everyone must abide by the law or face harsh punishment. Rosa´s inability to conform and obey the rules brands her a leper and no one wants to be within two feet of her, until she meets Joseph. He´s blonde, fair-skinned, green-eyed, and the laid-back complete opposite of Rosa. She´s never met anyone quite like him, and she knows that spells danger. But differences weren´t always a bad thing. People used to think being unique was one of the most treasured of traits to have. Now, the Superiors, who ruthlessly control the concrete cities with an iron fist, are obsessed with creating a ´´raceless´´ race. They are convinced this is the only way to avoid another war. Any anomalies must be destroyed. The Superiors are unstoppable and can do anything they want. After all, they are considered superheroes by the general public. But not everyone sees them this way. When they continue to abuse their power by collecting young girls for use in their secret, high-tech breeding program, they have no idea that one of those girls has somehow managed to make friends even she didn´t know she had. And one man will stop at nothing to save her. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ali Ahn. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/023687/bk_acx0_023687_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

The families who rule the People´s Republic of Haven are in trouble. The treasury´s empty, the Proles are restless, and civil war is imminent. But the ruling class knows what they need to keep in power: a ´´short victorious war´´ to unite the people and fill the treasury once more. It´s a card they´ve played often in the last half-century, always successfully, and all that stands in their way is the Star Kingdom of Manticore and its threadbare allies: enemies in the past who have always backed down. Only this time the Peeps face something different. This time they´re up against Captain Honor Harrington and a Royal Manticoran Navy that´s prepared to give them a war that´s far from short - or victorious.

The People´s Republic of Haven´s sneak attack on the Kingdom of Manticore has failed. The Peeps are in disarray, their leaders fighting for power in bloody revolution, and the Royal Manticoran Navy stands victorious. But Manticore has domestic problems of its own, and success can be more treacherous than defeat for Honor Harrington. Now, trapped at the core of a political crisis she never sought, betrayed by an old and vicious enemy she´d thought vanquished forever, she stands alone. She must fight for justice on a battlefield she never trained for in a private war that offers just two choices: death... or a ´´victory´´ that can end only in dishonor and the loss of all she loves.

Hounded into retirement and disgrace by political enemies, cut to the heart by the murder of the man she loved, and bereft of confidence in herself and her abilities, Captain Honor Harrington has retreated to the planet Grayson to take up her role as Steadholder while she tries to heal her bitter wounds. But the People´s Republic of Haven is rising from defeat to threaten Grayson anew, and the newborn Grayson Navy needs her experience desperately. It´s a call Honor cannot refuse, yet even as she once more accepts the duty whose challenges she fears she can no longer meet, powerful men who hate and fear the changes she´s brought to their world are determined to reverse them. They have a plan ... and for it to succeed Honor Harrington must die. Two irresistible forces are rushing together to crush Grayson between them, and only one woman uncertain of her capabilities, weary unto death, and marked for murder-stands between her adopted planet and its devastation.
