Flag in Exile, David Weber (Baen Books, 1995 {Brilliance Audio, Narrator: Allysson Johnson)

Flag in Exile is David Weber’s fifth book in the Honor Harrington series and focuses on the ramifications of her actions at the end of the last book, while simultaneously building more into the political and social background of the ‘Honorverse.’ It is an enjoyable read to anyone who likes the Honor Harrington series, but would likely prove unsatisfying to anyone who was not already a fan.
