The review of this Book prepared by Janet Dailey

This is part of the Honor Harrington series although this is the only one I have read. The main character Honor is thought dead, but actually captured by her enemies and imprisoned on a prison planet. She and others plan their escape. This book doesn't flow very well but the story was interesting. There is a lot of unnecessary detail which makes the book a harder read than it should be. There were a couple of times I was just not going to finish this book, but I got through it.
