On Basilisk Station is the first book in a quite lengthy series of space military novels. Honor Harrington is a young woman whose first command of her own ship results in her banishment to the equivalent posting of the Aleutian islands. There, her superior office, who dislikes Honor, leaves her and her ship as the sole naval presence. Honor shakes everyone in the establishment up by enforcing the rules and regulations. Enemies, political and military, abound. Her own crew doesn't trust her or respect her. The story unfolds how Honor deals with several related crises and a large, very hostile threat.
I like David Weber's stories and this is no exception. I will be reading all of the Honor series. The characters became real people to me, even the bad ones. The space battles are exciting and damages occur to both good and bad sides. The technology is realistic and sufficient explanations are given without overdoing it.
I like that right triumphs. And, it's clear that troubles are not over for Honor or the kingdom she serves.
