Torch of Freedom - Weber/Flint
This is the second book in the "Wages of Sin" spin off by David Weber and Eric Flint. It's set in the Honor Harrington universe and runs parallel to the main story line with minor characters in the main line being fleshed out as major characters in this spin off.
This is a space/spy thriller type of book. Wonderfully paced. Nail biting action. Great characters. Genetic slavery is the back drop of this spin off with Haven and Manticore, bitter enemies in the main line, teaming up to fight Man Power and Mesa in this story.
I love the entire HH Universe and this book doesn't disappoint. I guess the only sad thing is that I'm now caught up with all the HH books except the anthologies. It's been a fun year reading something like 15 or so books.
Also credit should be shared about Baen as a publishers. In addition to hard backs and paper packs, the ebooks are sold without DRM for $6. If that's too much, many of the books are available for free in the Baen Free Library (www.baen.com/library). Most all of the series are available at The Fifth Imperium where cd images are hosted (with permission from Baen) that had been distributed with the hard back books.
