Book three in the nationally best-selling Manticore Ascendant series, a
prequel series to David Weber's multiple New York Times best-selling Honor
Harrington series. Sequel to A Call to Duty and A Call to Arms. After the
disastrous attack on the Manticoran home system by forces unknown, the
Royal Manticoran Navy stands on the brink of collapse. A shadowy enemy with
the resources to hurl warships across hundreds of light years seeks to
conquer the Star Kingdom for reasons unknown, while forces from within
Manticore’s own government seek to discredit and weaken the Navy for
reasons very much known: their own political gain. It’s up to officers like
Travis Long and Lisa Donnelly to defend the Star Kingdom and the Royal
Manticoran Navy from these threats, but the challenge is greater than any
they have faced before. Weakened but not defeated, the mercenary forces and
their mysterious employer could return at any time, and the anti-Navy
faction within Parliament is growing. The situation becomes even more dire
when fresh tragedy strikes the Star Kingdom. While the House of Winton
faces their enemies at home, Travis, Lisa, and the other officers of the
Royal Manticoran Navy must reunite with old friends and join new allies to
hunt down and eliminate the forces arrayed against them in a galaxy-
spanning conspiracy. Manticore has learned that the universe is not a safe
place, but the Star Kingdom’s enemies are about to learn it's dangerous to
mess with the Manticore!
