I think this was slightly shorter in length than the previous books. However it didn't effect my enjoyment of this read.
I was quite pleased with the result of the injury to Honor, which took place in book 2.
I liked the plot and the drama in Haven. I'm not sure what will happen in the next book, because of the incident.
I was extremely pleased with Pavel Young's actions.(show spoiler)
I was happy to see Honor loosen up a bit regarding her newly formed romance with Paul. I think he'll be good for her and he clearly have Nimitz's blessing.
