Beschreibung

The Star Kingdom's ally, Erewhon, is growing increasingly restive in the alliance because the new High Ridge regime ignores its needs. Add to that the longstanding problem of a slave labor planet controlled by hostile Mesans in Erewhon's stellar back yard, a problem which High Ridge also ignores.
Finally, the recent assassination of the Solarian League's most prominent voice of public conscience indicates the growing danger of political instability in the League - which is also close to Erewhon. In desperation, Queen Elizabeth tries to defuse the situation by sending a private mission to Erewhon led by Captain Zilwicki, accompanied by one of her nieces. When they arrive on Erewhon, however, Manticore's most capable agent and one of its princesses find themselves in a mess.
Not only do they encounter one of the Republic of Haven's most capable agents - Victor Cachat - but they also discover that the Solarian League's military delegation seems up to its neck in skullduggery. And, just to put the icing on the cake, the radical freed slave organization, the Audubon Ballroom, is also on the scene - led by its most notorious killer, Jeremy X.

listen to it with the Honor series in release orde

I listened to this book after I listened to the book Honor Harrington At All Costs. In the latter in some places it is referred to events described in this book. though it is not essential fr the Harrington series to understand the whole plot of this book, it is definitely helping.
besides this, this book is worth listening to. make no mistake, it s not an Harrington book. hence, all the fighting is missing and most of all war action. in my opinion, this is not a downside. I never liked the Harrington series only for the action.

the only downside to me is the narrator. because I am so used to Honor's narrator, I was never getting used to a male narrator impersonation characters from the Honorverse.

Manticore ohne Honor? Nein Danke!

Honor Harrington fasziniert einfach, obwohl sie eigentlich als einseitiger Protagonist dargestellt ist: Stur, von sich selbst überzeugt, taktisches Genie. Aber zusammen mit ihren Getreuen gelingt es ihr immer wieder, gegen alle Widrigkeiten zu obsiegen.

Leider hat sie hier nur einen kurzen Cameoauftritt, und nichts von ihrem Flair kommt auf. Gespräche über Taktik und Politik von Kapitellänge wie in "War of Honor", woraus "Crown" größtenteils besteht, hält man schon MIT Honor nur schwer aus, aber da wird man ja später noch mit Action und 3D-Taktik belohnt.

Nicht so in "Crown", leider! Ich hoffe, "Crown" und "Torch of Freedom" sind nicht elementar wichtig für hauptsächlichen Handlungsstrang, der mit "At all Costs" wieder einsetzt.
