I’ve just read the sequel to Crown of Slaves by David Weber & Eric Flint. Fun read and certainly major setup piece for the next mainline Honor Harrington book.

I will note that the authors have in the past come up with some truly memorable one-liners (despite not being particularly well known for brevity generally).

The very last line of Torch of Freedom is one such, and possibly right up there with “Oops.” 🙂
