In Fury Born (Fury Series)
by David WeberWell THAT was fun.
Just a great BIG (800+ pages) space opera with a Honor Harrington-esque military superwoman. Good guys are good and bad guys are very bad - what you expect and want from a Weber story, I think.
Lots of dizzying military action (I'm not one to take notes - I trust him to know his universe) and typical Weber plotting - add in a bit of "The Ship who Sang" and one fanatstic - as in fantasy - character (a Fury from Greek mythology, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tisiphone) and you've got a fun story - and I hope the beginning of a new Weber series.
This is a reworking/inflation of an earlier book "The Path of the Fury" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Path_Of_The_Fury).
Some reviewers prefer the original work - not having read it, I don't know - I certainly enjoyed this one.
