BOOK FOUR IN THE NATIONALLY BEST-SELLING MANTICORE ASCENDANT SERIES, SET IN THE WORLD OF DAVID WEBER'S MULTIPLE NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING HONORVERSE SERIES Yesterday, the Star Kingdom of Manticore was a small, unimportant interstellar backwater with no navy, but today, Manticore has become a target. The Star Kingdom isn't certain who is attacking it or why, but Queen Elizabeth I knows she has to find out. She knows that whatever some of her subjects think, Manticore needs a navy. And it needs allies--friends like the dynamic Republic of Haven and the Andermani Empire. It needs their trade . . . and to learn from their more experienced and powerful navies. Officer Travis Long and his wife, Lisa, must acquire that experience. And Travis's brother, the inexperienced diplomat Gavin, Earl Winterfall, must build those alliances. They've been sent to the Andermani Empire to do just that, for their navy is one of the most potent and experienced fleets in the galaxy. But the Andermani have problems of their own: their Emperor's death has triggered insurrection, and their navy is locked in civil war. The Manticoran visitors are in the path of the storm, and before they can accomplish anything else, Travis, Lisa, and Gavin first have to survive. About A Call to Arms: "The plotting is as solid as ever, with smaller scenes building to an explosive, action-packed crescendo, and the authors strike a nice balance between technical details of space flight and the human cost of war."--Publishers Weekly Praise for prequel A Call to Duty: "This exciting book marks the first collaboration of two powerhouses . . . fans of both writers should be quite pleased with the result. Like Robert A. Heinlein and Orson Scott Card, Weber and Zahn are telling a story about a teenage character but writing for readers of all ages."--Booklist "A new series set in the universe of Weber's popular heroine Honor Harrington gets off to a solid start. . . . Cowriters Zahn and Weber do an excellent job alluding to events known to longtime fans. . . . [T]his astronautical adventure is filled with . . . intrigue and political drama."--Publishers Weekly About the Honor Harrington series: "Weber combines realistic, engaging characters with intelligent technological projection and a deep understanding of military bureaucracy in this long-awaited Honor Harrington novel . . . Fans of this venerable space opera will rejoice to see Honor back in action."--Publishers Weekly ". . . everything you could want in a heroine. . . . Excellent . . . plenty of action."--Science Fiction Age "Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!"--Anne McCaffrey "Compelling combat combined with engaging characters for a great space opera adventure."--Locus "Weber combines realistic, engaging characters with intelligent technological projection . . . Fans of this venerable space opera will rejoice . . ."--Publishers Weekly About Timothy Zahn: "Zahn keeps the story moving at a breakneck pace, maintaining excitement."--Publishers Weekly "[Y]ou can count on Timothy Zahn for three things: clean, sparse prose; good pacing; and great action scenes. The first book in the Cobra War series hits all those marks in admirable style and makes for a quick, entertaining sci-fi novel." --Blogcritics "[Conqueror's Heritage] is another finely wrought space adventure . . . [with] social, political and emotional complications, all of which Zahn treats with his usual skill."--Booklist "Zahn paints every detail [in Angelmass] with gleamy realism . . . scientific dialogue that streams with starship hardware and military trooper talk . . . immensely appealing."--Kirkus Review
