In Fire Forged (Worlds of Honor 5) by David Weber et al

Title: In Fire Forged
Author: David Weber
Series: Worlds of Honor #5. These are the anthologies spun off from the Honor Harrington series, she is not always a major character in them.
Genre: Space opera, anthology.
Setting: The Manticoran Empire, the People's Republic of Haven, the Silesian Confederacy - made-up stellar empires.
Reason for Reading: Boredom.
Finished In: Days
Pages: 336
Copyright Date: 2011
Cover: A woman with a blaster leaping down the corridor of a spaceship.
Themes: Kidnapping, religious fanaticism, intrigue, spaceships, telepathic cats.
Best part: I loved the first story, "Ruthless" by Jane Lindskold.
Worst part: I am just not the type to appreciate essays on the design of imaginary spaceships, though I realize after a conversation with gentlescholar that such people do, in fact, exist.
Imaginary Theme Song: Let's Dance by David Bowie
Grade: C+
Recommended for: Actually, this wouldn't be a bad introduction to the Honor Harrington series, for those who are not yet sure they want to commit to reading 15 volumes.
