Tocząca się ponad osiem lat wojna między Sojuszem Manticore a Ludową Republika Haven wkracza w decydującą fazę. Lady Honor Harrington „powraca z martwych”, z przyjaciółmi uznanymi za zaginionych lub także martwych. I robi to w naprawdę wielkim stylu, podnosząc tym nadwątlone morale zarówno załóg Królewskiej Marynarki jak i obywateli Gwiezdnego Królestwa. Są wśród nich tacy, którzy wiedzą jak naprawdę wyglądał zamach na legalny rząd Republiki i kto go zorganizował i przeprowadził.
Someone is assassinating the leaders of both the Star Kingdom of Manticore and the recently liberated former slave planet of Torch. Though most believe the Republic of Haven is behind the murders, Anton Zilwicki and Havenite secret agent Victor Cachat believe there is another sinister player behind the scenes. Queen Berry of Torch narrowly escaped one assassination attempt, and a security officer from Beowulf has been assigned to protect her, a task complicated by the young monarch's resentment of bodyguards, and the officer's growing attachment to her. Meanwhile, powerful forces in the Solarian League are maneuvering against each other to gain the upper hand, not realizing or, perhaps, not caring that their power struggle is threatening the League's very existence and could plunge the galaxy into war.
Once again New York Times best-selling authors David Weber and Eric Flint join forces in an exciting new novel in the Honorverse.
Following the explosive events of "Star Trek: Nemesis" the Romulan Empire is in disarray. When the Vulcan Ambassador Spock is publicly assassinated at a Romulan Peace Rally it falls to James T. Kirk to uncover the truth about the death of his beloved friend.
There are crises enough for James T. Kirk to contend with: a Romulan-Reman civil war, Ambassador Spock assassinated and closer to home, a violent rebellion against him by his son. Then comes a call when he least expects it: one last time, the Federation is asking for his help.
