Storm From the Shadows by David Weber

The 14th book in the Honorverse series doesn't have much to do with Honor Harrington. Instead it seems to be a transitional book that takes the series from Honor Harrington to a new storyline. Many reviews that I read of this book didn't like it and specifically mentioned not starting with it, which is exactly what I did. If you like science fiction, I think that this series would be very interesting but you would need to begin with On Basilisk Station. The series, which I have seen called both military science fiction and space opera, seems to have a very large fan base and was well-written even though I was confused through most of it. There was some profanity and I thought it was very clean until right at the end there were a couple of f-words. I don't know what the earlier books were like. Rated R.
