    1. These are good short stories, if you like short stories All three books of this series Almost better than the main Honor Harrington story thread Better in some ways.



    2. An anthology of five short stories set in the Honorverse and second in the Worlds of Honor anthology series.The StoriesDavid Weber s What Price Dreams is a fascinating fill in on how the Crown Princess, Adrienne, was adopted by a treecat.Brief mentions of Stephanie Harrington as the first adoptee.He also wrote Hard Way Home which has two primary stories One is of Susan Hibson as a 12 year old and her dreams of joining the Royal Manticoran Marines while the other is of another of Honor Harrington [...]


    3. Worlds of HonorMix bag of short stories, the one s by David Weber and Jane Lindskold were good the other two were bad.1.The Stray by Linda EvansDisappointing, too many loop holes in the plot The story didn t feel consistent to what David Weber has built up of the Tree Cats in Sphinx Also the writing skill didn t have flow too many repetitions 2 5 2.What Price Dreams by David WeberLoved It A typical Weber story great plot and storytelling Full of Emotions, Intrigue, Thrill Politics Tells us off t [...]


    4. This anthology of stories set in the Honor Harrington Universe is very difficult to rate The first two stories, The Stray by Linda Evan, and What Price Dreams by David Weber himself, were pretty dull and barely a three star rating, while Queen s Gambit by Jane Linskold was a solid five stars The Hard Way Home by David Weber again was better than his first short tale, but not by much, and Deck Load Strike by Roland Green took a while to get going but ends dramatically and has some fun characters [...]


    5. Worlds of Honor is a great collection of short stories that fill in time between the settling of Manticore and contacts with treecats and how they have infiltrated society and how they come to change it for the better with great action and humour D Plus there is an in depth look at Honor when she was was a Lt Commander where Nimitz saves the day D as well as a different perspective on the State Sec Peep War which is shocking and brillaintly done DWorlds of Honor is brilliant, fast paced, clever, [...]


    6. A good collection of stories I really like the treecats, so it was fun getting information on them Much the same style as the other books I ve read by David Weber Expect lots of important characters, even in a short story.


    7. I love these collections of short stories set in my favorite Space Opera setting I especially like stories telling how humans get adopted by Treecats.


    8. Over all I found this a much better collection than the previous Worlds of Honor collection More Than Honor with the exception of the last story Deck Load Strike which was quite frankly dreadful and should never have been in there and certainly shouldn t have been the last story and so colour one s memory of the whole I have written a few words on each story The Stray by Linda Evans this was a good, enjoyable little story, though it did read a bit YA for me Not because of any YA protagionists th [...]


    9. So the second Honorverse collection pretty much follows the rules set out in the first one We get a treecat story two of them actually a story by Weber again, two of them a story with a Havenite point of view and a story that doesn t really fit The Stray is the first of two treecat stories, set shortly after A Beautiful Friendship from the first collection but using none of the same characters It s not a bad piece, but it does seem a bit off at points, Scott s psychic abilities seem to contradic [...]


    10. This is a good follow up on the first novel in the series There is a relationship between the two and it has a good underlying feel to it I am very happy with the editing and would suggest this for anyone looking to read a well founded SciFi series so far.


    11. Meh.Picked this up when I realized I wasn t patient enough to get into the latest Honor book It s a quick read, and most of the stories are fairly well done Most revolve around or at least feature treecats, easily Weber s most imagination grabbing invention Only one of the guest authors was allowed brave enough to touch Weber s characters Jane Linkskold s story about Elizabeth Winton s first days as queen at least tied with Weber s tale of the first cat adoption of a princess as best in the coll [...]


    12. This book has five short stories set in the Honor Harrington universe The first story, The Stray , by Linda Evans, is a murder mystery set on Sphinx with a human doctor and a treecat working together to solve the crime The second story is by Weber himself It is titled What Price Dreams and is about the first adoption of a member of the Manticore Royal Family by a treecat Queen s Gambit , by Jane Linskold, is a politically driven story about the rise of Queen Elizabeth III to the throne of the R [...]


    13. A Book of five short stories in the Honorverse.1 The Stray by Linda Evans Mildly interesting story about a treecat from the early days of Sphinx Grade B2 What Price Dreams by David Weber We find out how Elizabeth got her treecat Grade A 3 Queen s Gambit by Jane Lindskold How Honor s Queen Elizabeth came to power after her father s assasination Well Done, I ll be looking for other stuff by this author Grade A4 The Hard Way Home by David Weber An Honor story from shortly before the first book in t [...]


    14. Three and a half stars, rounded up to four.Five novellas, all well written, offering different views of Honor s worlds Honor is not the main character in any of the stories, which just shows how rich and complex Weber s world building is My favorite story was the first, The Stray, by Linda Evans, which is a murder mystery with cats.While I m still not convinced that a six legged mammal is a life form evolution would produce, I m willing to suspend belief to enjoy the stories in this collection M [...]


    15. i don t know so much that i would call it a mistake to read this book, but it was certainly ill advised to read it during the first few weeks of a pregnancy i had read parts of it before, but this was the first time i d read the whole thing.i m giving it three and a half stars, merely because i didn t love all of the stories what price dreams , i is by far my favorite, and the descriptions from the treecats points of view was really sweet this was the one that made me weep like a child, but in a [...]


    16. Short stories in the HonorverseI really like the stories featuring treecats a great opportunity to learn about them, their abilities, their society and culture, and their relationships with humans.I also enjoyed the rather predictable story featuring Honor that takes place before On Basilisk Station.The last story was confusing and rather pointless, I thought I guess it told us a little about Erehwon.I know I will look at the treecats and their interactions with humans differently, having read [...]


    17. Worlds of Honor is book 2 of the short story anthologies in the Honor Harrington Universe I generally don t like anthologies, but I liked this one It fills in a lot of missing information mentioned in the main story line novels For example Mention is made of Honor Harrington s efforts at search and rescue during a snow avalanche That story is detailed here in The Hard Way Home.The book does contain some cursing It is not a lot but the F word is used on occasion It probably could have been avoide [...]


    18. Following the Honor Harrington stories in chronological order, these are back stories for On Basilisk Station, the first Honor Harrington novel.Two stories which give background on the treecat culture and their bonding with humans.3 The Stray, by Linda Evans4 What Price Dreams by David Weber Princess Elizabeth is adopted 6 Queen s Gambit by Jane Lindskold Elizabeth becomes Queen after King Roger is assassinated 7 The Hard Way Home by David Weber Young people struggle for survival in an alpine a [...]


    19. David Weber really knows what he s doing with this series now The first book, More Than Honor, started off so promisingly with Stephanie Harrington, but then meandered off in other directions This time Weber s got the pulse of the readership ALL TREE CATS, ALL THE TIME And it is awesome And adorable.


    20. Better than the last one Contains stories about Treecats, and a story of a younger, Lt Cmdr Harrington The story at the end about the Peeps I skipped Thus far these anthologies are completely filler and not needed for understanding the mainline story, and rarely feature any of the characters we know from the mainline stories, so it s just setting the background for the universe, which isn t bad, but sometimes you just want to read about your favorite characters


    21. The second collection of Honorverse stories is vastly improved over the first, actually making Weber s Honor story the least favorite in this grouping Linda Evans explores treecat human relations with a murder mystery, Jane Lindskold tackles an adoption assassination attempt on royalty, and Weber s one POV tale on treecats makes for a well received anthology.


    22. This installment was entertaining, enjoyable than the first of the series It contained stories featuring characters and identifiable incidents from the Honor Harrington series It provided interesting background information I believe Honor Harrington fans will get a kick out of this book.


    23. Much better than the previous half assed collection of background notes and chunks of detail that had been edited from the main books I enjoyed all the stories in this book but the final one by Roland Green I eventually gave up on that one It was like reading white noise I just couldn t stay focused on it.


    24. My gosh, it is in fact possible to write short stories in the Manticore setting As might be expected, how interesting this book is depends on which of the stories you happen to be reading at the moment, but tree pony fans will be delighted with two of the stories recounting early incidents in the development of the relationship between human and treecats.


    25. This was a series of short stories written by authors other than the one who wrote the series on which they were based This is always a warning sign that the stories are inferior, don t fit the rest of the series, or both Fortunately, that didn t happen Two of these stories were by Weber and the others met the same high standards.


    26. extra 1 3 star.Linda Evans The Stray 2.25 starsDavid Weber What Price Dreams 3.75 starsJane Lindskold Queen s Gambit 3.75 starsDavid Weber The Hard Way Home 4 starsRoland J Green Deck Load Strike 2.75 stars


    27. Probably would have been better titled World of Treecats, since all but one story were about them or featured them prominently Decent short stories, not as good or entertaining as the Honor Harrington novels, but interesting as backstory nonetheless.


    28. A solid collection of short stories in the HonorVerse.If you re interested in the Honor Harrington series this might interest you tip Check the reading order for the series to avoid spoilers.


    29. good read lots of military stuff to dig through but also the human squishy stuff that makes reading an honor Harrington book worth so much .
