The Short Victorious War

The Short Victorious War - David Weber This was a very enjoyable book but it felt like half a book, we spend a lot if time on the (admittedly fascinating) political build up only to fizzle at the end, where the climax is wrapped up in no time at all, mostly off screen.

Most disappointing was Pavel Young who has been built up a a monster for three books and brought onto the stage in a prime position to do damage, only to do nothing for the entire book except screw up at the en and get his comeuppance. A missed opportunity to give Honor a real challenge there.
