This book is “Worlds of Honor #5” which denotes that it is an anthology of stories by Weber and other authors set in the Honor Harrington universe. The stories are all pretty good, and Weber’s own is especially welcome because it involves Honor in the past, before she became as high ranked as she is ‘now’ in the latest books.
As in real life, success brings promotion and you can’t be a ship captain or even admiral forever even if those make the best stories. The recent main books are strategic, with large casts and events taking place all over the place. This is all well and good, but there’s still a need for the smaller stories with just a few characters facing problems that will not destroy the world.
