The People's Republic of Haven made a tiny mistake when it announced the execution of Honor Harrington. It seemed safe enough. After all, she was already dead. Unfortunately, they were wrong. Now Honor has escaped from the prison planet called Hell and returned to the Manticoran Alliance with a few friends. Almost half a million of them, to be precise including some who know what really happened when the Committee of Public Safety seized power in the PRH. Honor's return from the dead comes at a critical time, providing a huge, much-needed lift for the Allies' morale, for the war is rapidly entering a decisive phase. Both sides believe that victory lies within their grasp at last, but dangers no one could foresee await them both. New weapons, new strategies, new tactics, spies, diplomacy, and assassination all are coming into deadly focus, and Honor Harrington, the woman the newsies call "the Salamander," once more finds herself at the heart of them all. But this time, the furnace may be too furious for even a salamander to survive.

3.0 Ashes of Victory (Honor Harrington Series, Book 9)
Lots of thought dumps that detract somewhat from the story and has kind of put me off the series as each novel is very similar to the last whereby Honor is going to survive and be the hero. May return to the series in the future.

Honor is great!Honor is grand!Let's sing about Honor while we stand on our hands!And that is what is wrong with this. Honestly, I debtated, am still debating whether to give one or two stars. The Honor worships was so over the top, it wasn't even funny. I can't even write this review without tree...

3.0 Ashes of Victory (Honor Harrington Series, Book 9)
While I've always liked the Honor books, this one particularly frustrated me because I would read about what the enemies were planning right under the good guys' noses, it seemed. And then, that government which was installed in place of Cromarty is terrible, and frustrating too. :P
