    H Paul Honsinger is the author of the Man of War Trilogy, the first two volumes of which were a hit in self publication All three volumes of the trilogy are now in print, issued by 47North Press, a Division of Publications The first two volumes, To Honor You Call Us and For Honor We Stand were released in early 2014 The third volume, Brothers in Valor came out on June 30, 2015 All three volumes are available in Kindle eBook, paperback, and audio editions from Brilliance Audio, narrated by top drawer voice actor Ray Chase.The story of Max Robichaux, Dr Ibrahim Sahin, and the colorful personalities that populate the USS Cumberland will continue in the Brothers of the Black Sky trilogy The first volume, To Stations My Lads is expected in mid 2017 Space and military history are H Paul Honsinger s life long passions Lacking the physical attributes to be an astronaut or a soldier, and not endowed with the mathematical ability essential to become an Aerospace Engineer or an Astronomer, he settled for a career in law But, the study of space and war have always been a part of his life He became an amateur astronomer, made himself an expert on the history of space exploration if you ever tell him that the moon landings were a hoax, expect an argument expect to lose , and never stopped studying the history and the art of war He started reading science fiction at the age of seven starting with Between Planets by Robert Heinlein and has been a lifelong fan of the genre He also developed an interest in military history upon seeing the movie Patton on television in 1972 when he was twelve He has spent years studying in detail the campaigns of Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon, Lee, Grant, Jackson, Halsey, and Patton and perhaps most significantly thinking deeply and precisely about what it would be like if the stories about combat in space he read and saw on the screen were told in a way that made scientific and military sense.He never thought he would be a fiction writer His wife, Kathleen, one day pointed at his computer chair and said Sit Start writing Now The result was the first draft of Chapter 1 of To Honor You Call Us the Prologue was written later Paul tremulously presented it to Kathleen and asked am I wasting my time She said no and the rest of the novel followed Paul s goal is simple to write military science fiction done right stories in which the alien enemies are believable foes, fighting for a plausible reason, with weapons that don t violate the laws of physics, and where the tactics used by both sides make some sort of geometric and military sense He wanted to bring to space the same kind of realistic adventure one finds on the sea in the novels of Patrick O Brian and C.S Forester Why not, he thought, tell realistic human stories against the background of a realistic military conflict that just happens to be set 300 years in the future And why not try to evoke in the imaginations of readers vivid images of what the lives of these men would be like, fighting for the survival of mankind among the stars, thousands of light years from home

    This book won t be for everyoned I ll say why below BUT I like it The only negative I have for it is it endedwell maybe 2 There isn t a sequel for it yet This is the second in a fast moving, action packed military science fiction series It started just a bit slower than the first as it took it s time to give us of a build up That said it wasn t a problem As noted once it blasts off it wastes no time.It might be called a rip snortin adventure.Now for some of you you ll find the fact that the pro [...]

    This is an excellent sequel to the first book, To Honor You Call Us, in the Man of War series The book continues the adventures of Max and Sahin as they combat, not only the Krag but also the all too common incompetent officers, appointed by political maneuvering rather than actual merit and competence, within their own navy.It has all the good parts of the previous book The dialog is sometimes quite fun to read The characters are likable Heck I even like the loud mouthed Admiral There is a fair [...]

    TLDR When you have to explain why a joke is funny, it stops being funny The same thing is true here with the coolness factor, if you have to stop every 30 seconds and explain why things are cool or interesting, they stop being cool or interesting.As I was reading through the first book something really bothered me but I couldn t quite put my finger on it Finally, partway through the second book I figured it out, despite the series being how many hundreds of years in the future there are almost n [...]

    I received this novel through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review This novel picked up almost right where the previous installment ended Max and his crew, with a few new faces, are charged with a mission to visit Wothim Biggs a man whom Bram met in book one and some military and political maneuvering ensue The action is nearly nonstop in this one The Cumberland moves from battle to battle, getting her share of scrapes along the way The characters are fun and we get to know them throughly [...]

    What an enjoyable book The style and pacing remind me still of Forester s Hornblower series especially if one could imagine Mr Midshipman Hornblower from the perspective of Cpt Edward Pellew.The Dr Sahnin character seems to be there to make this feel like O Brian s Dr Maturin but the characters never seem to develop his same richness and depth While is may have missed its O Brian mark and it is not C.S Forester s equal in prose it is still very good fiction and a lot of fun to read

    Started out this book and in the first 100 pages started thinking I was going to have to downgrade it to a 2 This was a real bummer for me as I was just starting to enjoy the characters However it came back swinging and made it to at least a 3.5 4 Where to begin The dialogue Is unfortunately pretty atrocious and forced Every interaction is plagued with stereo types of characters previous behaviors and occurrences to the point of madness Reading every conversation between Bram and Max is pretty m [...]

    Initially, this second installment didn t grab me as firmly as the first one had The overall plot structure seemed a little weak, jumping from one thing to another However, it really picked up as it went on The aquatic alien race introduced in book 1 make a return appearance, but we also get to delve into another alien race, and get a little insight into galactic history.The story climaxed in a collection of scenes so tense that I simply couldn t stop listening I felt the same emotions as the p [...]

    First, how many sci fi rip offs of Aubrey Maturin saga is considered too many Because I m at nr 3 and I think I REALLY reached that no point Apart from that I would have still given this book stars mostly because I ve read worse, much worse , but I cannot abide silly plot points put there just to show the protagonist s heroism Spoiler At a certain point, the captain and the good doctor are asked to come personally to discuss an alliance with the Kingdom of Rashid Why someone would ask for a lo [...]

    the plot excellent, with less reliance on cliche than the first in the series the most notable of these is the incompetent superior officer who won t listen to anything you say.I m docking 1.5 stars for excessive, and I mean grossly excessive, use of the doctor among others as ignorant people who have to have things explained by doing this of course, the author conveys information to the reader, but it s really blatant, and it feels forced sometimes the omniscient narrator can just write a few p [...]

    Doc
    The second book of the Man of War series.As a longtime fan of Napoleonic era naval fiction and of sci fi, this story was doubly satisfying The book succeeds at combining many elements from the Age of Sail with good space opera The authors are obviously having a lot of fun working in stuff from the age of Nelson to that of Star Trek They treat the naval traditions and usages with respect Naval action can even include boarding, though this has yet to occur.The first third of For Honor We Stand is [...]

    I am really enjoying this series and feel connected to the characters I never get tired of the detailed descriptions of life aboard the ship I would in fact love to read about what the crew do while time is passing I was a US Navy sailor when I was young, a parachute rigger, occasionally stationed aboard an aircraft carrier, the USS Forrestal While there was little time too recreate while on alert, it was essential to do so when we were not I took leave in various ports and had many adventures [...]

    This series continues to please and live up to the high expectations I had after the first book When you find yourself reading and the idea of science fiction drops from your mind because the story is timeless, you know you have found a real treasure Too many science fiction authors have fallen into the sea of neural implants, AI driven action and technology that drowns the story and the human element I would rate these books in the same league as Starship Troopers and The Forever War I am anxio [...]

    First finished June 5th, 2014 While the early book threatened to take on a formulaic quality, it then stepped up the suspense and delivered a fun story.Second finish January 15th, 2016 not too much to add The book ends on an event that is somehow a satisfying conclusion and a cliffhanger in the what comes next sense I ve got the third waiting on my Kindle already and I look forward to reading that one for the first time to finish up the series.

    Enjoyed it quite a bit It was entertaining, with good narrative and gripping battle scenest quite as much as the first book of the series, but not bad at all Although, I must admit, I didn t quite enjoy the change in doctor s characterhe changed into a comic relief, or the fool of the book Anywayill not bad

    Barbara
    As with the first book, this was an exciting read and the author s enthusiasm for his subject was infectious The landing at the ministry was a hoot.I did not see that ending coming I m so pleased I came to this series late as I already own book 3, so I don t have to wait to find out what happens next.

    Highly reminiscent to Master and Commander without feeling derivative Excellent characterization and a tight narrative.

    Excellent second book in this series Good characterization, good progression, very good battle sequences Hope the third book is out soon.

    Definitely good stuff, with proper advancements in story arc and character development.

    If I could, I d probably give the first two books in this trilogy a 3.75, but because I enjoyed them both so much despite their flaws, they ve earned their rounding up to 4 stars These books were entertaining, gripping and many times so moving that I was surprised by a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes, that s how strongly I was able to connect with Max That s been pretty rare in my experience reading scifi not that I ve had vast experience I read a lot of scifi in my youth and am only just [...]

    The second book of Honsinger s military SF series delivers pretty much everything you d expect after the first book Unfortunately, the beginning parts of the novel have some problems I think he felt too much of a need to re introduce things with an in media res opening designed to show off Robicheaux s tactical cunning and generating suspense through use of off screen actions.That wouldn t be too bad as a first chapter prologue though I still think there s better ways to do it , but we re treate [...]

    HBalikov
    Honsinger knows his naval history He also knows his Horatio Hornblower and his Aubry Maturin novels That makes for some interesting references and a depth of naval lore and references that should satisfy, amuse and refresh a similarly situated reader That isn t to say that you have to plow through obscure references to enjoy this space warfare yarn Action starts with the prologue and it is often fast and furious As is the case with Patrick O Brian s novels about the British Navy, you don t have [...]

    More reviews and no fluff on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress This second book in the Man of War Trilogy manages to not fall into a sopho slump and continues in the tradition of the first book The characters are still smug, overexplain every situation, and do a lot of speeches Despite my frustration with the egregious use of telling and not showing, there is something endearing about the series that will keep me reading to the third volume.Story The Cumberland crew continue their work in space, b [...]

    The sequel to Honsinger s To Honor You Call Us continues the story immediately following the events of that novel You can read my review of it here and much of the same commentary there applies here Honsinger turns out another exciting and action packed story in For Honor We Stand, continuing the adventures of the Cumberland and her crew Honsinger, walks a rather deft line between space opera and military sci fi offering fast paced action and interesting characters in universe grounded with a di [...]

    This was a worthy follow up to the first book, and even exceeds it in pretty much every way For anyone who likes military space action, this is one you ll probably enjoy It has a feel of the best traits of Jack Campbell s Lost Fleet series or David Feintuch s Hope series, but does stand way out on its own with some very nice and original ideas.Although you will almost immediately recognize this world because of common traits you ve seen before, there is something refreshing about this series tha [...]

    This, the second in a series, lived up to my expectations after reading the first It has even interesting alien species, just the right balance of development and action, and suspense up to and including the last page.There is one alien species that is fish like The adolescents of the species grow up moving, fighting, and hunting in 3D, since they live their lives swimming That makes them the best fighter pilots in the known universe Their teamwork is as well coordinated as a school of fish or [...]
