INTRODUCINGHONOR HARRINGTONHaving made him look a fool, she's been exiled to Basilisk Station in disgrace and set up for ruin by a superior who hates her.Her demoralized crew blames her for their ship's humiliating posting to an out-of-the-way picket station.The aborigines of the system's only habitable planet are smoking homicide-inducing hallucinogens.Parliament isn't sure it wants to keep the place; the major local industry is smuggling; the merchant cartels want her head; the star-conquering, so-called "Republic" of Haven is Up To Something; and Honor Harrington has a single, over-age light cruiser with an armament that doesn't work to police the entire star system.But the people out to get her have made one mistake. They've made her mad.At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (DRM Rights Management).

This book isn’t good. I was told it was “Space Opera” but this is more like “Military Space Adventure”. Think Star Trek but with more guns death and jargon.Did I mention the jargon.

3.0 On Basilisk Station (Honor Harrington # 1) [Audible] - Not quite what I was expecting
For my thoughts on the book, plot, characters, etc. please see my review. As can be seen from my review above, I love this series and have revisited Manticore and its universe many times.
