This is #15 in the Honorverse series & #2 in the spinoff series about the planet Torch.
As the slavemasters of Mesa plot against the Star Empire of Manticore and the newly liberated slave planet of Torch, Anton Zilwicki and the notorious Havenite secret agent Victor Cachat set off on a dangerous mission to uncover the truth concerning a wave of mysterious assassinations that have been launched against Manticore and Torch. Most people are sure that the Republic of Haven is behind the assassinations, but Zilwicki and Cachat suspect others of being the guilty party.
Queen Berry of Torch was one of the targets of the unknown assassins. The former head of the Ballroom slave liberation organization, Jeremy X—now one of Torch's top officials, but still considered by many the most dangerous terrorist in the galaxy—calls in some past favors owed to him. In response, a security officer from Beowulf arrives in Torch to take charge of Queen Berry's security—a task made doubly difficult by the young monarch's resentment of bodyguards and the security officer's own growing attachment to her.
Meanwhile, powerful forces in the Solarian League are maneuvering against each other to gain the upper hand in what they all expect to be an explosive crisis that threatens the very existence of the League itself.
Wow, good book! Some sections of the timeline tie in with Storm from the Shadows and At All Costs but from the other person's perspective.

This begs the question: Have you seen Galaxy Quest, and: Do you recommend that I see Galaxy Quest?

After Googling it, I'm sure I've seen it but don't really remember it. Does that make it a forgettable movie? lol
If you like Star Trek, watch it just to see how many episodes are parodied from the series!

I like...making fun of Star Trek. Does that count? (No, I'm kidding, honest. But I really haven't seen that much Star Trek.) (Oh, wait. I really like Seven of Nine. Is Seven of Nine in that movie?)

Having fun with ST is what that movie was all about! It's got Sigourney Weaver in it, does that count?

That's how I found out about it. She was on Leno last night.

When are you going to get on Facebook already? I need you to be my Farmville neighbor. ;)

Becauuuuse...LJ doesn't have Farmville on site. Yet! :D I just think you should be over there AND stay over here. That's what I think. *nods*

What is Farmville? Do I get to ride some horses?

No, no, it is much lamer than that. You grow crops and you keep animals and milk cows. You can have a horse, but all you do is sell its hair. You don't ride it or anything. Also, some of the animals mate and have children. And there are green cows. That's about that.
