Poet At Large Reviews, Book, Torch of Freedom   Leave a comment

The book ‘Torch of Freedom’ by David Weber  and Eric Flint is the sequel to the book ‘Crown of Slaves’ and continues the expansion of the Honorverse beyond it’s Title Character of Honor Harrington.  As the new kingdom of Torch grows with transport after transport of former genetic slaves it also suffers growing pains in the expansion of it’s war with The planet Mesa and Manpower Unlimited. Who ruthlessly bread all of the genetic slaves for it’s own dark intentions. 

As is typical for a David Weber Book the Character’s drive the story and take one to a place that can be so real that you think you are right there in the action.  One minute you are with a young queen who has just seen the death of her friends and facing the truth that the Assassin was aimed at her.  The next you are with a man who has lost all that mattered to him because his daughter was deemed unfit to live. 

My only problem reading ‘Torch of Freedom’ is there were so many new characters that it was hard to keep track of who was who during the Battle of Torch.  Though the battle itself was well written.
