Should have been an Honorverse Novel!
Reviewed in the United States on September 26, 2019
Why should this have been an Honorverse novel you ask? Well for one, it is written in the exact same manner/style as the majority of the Honorverse series. The difference is that instead of the huge naval battles in the Honorverse, Alicia is a marine/drop Commando, so all the action sequences are ground based. Should have been an offshoot series like the Shadows of Saganami series. The only real major differences is that "In Fury Born" has a supernatural element to the book, which doesn't manifest until about half way through the book. Don't get me wrong I liked this book and I actually really like the Alicia Devries character aswell as her friend Tannis. But there are so many similarities to the Honorverse books I can see how people might accidentally mistake this for one. I just feel it would have made a better fit to lose the supernatural element of the story and fit into the Honorverse series. Below is a list of the things that I noticed. I have not read David Weber's Safehold series, but this really should be an Honorverse novel.
-Terms used in "In fury Born" are re-used from the HonorVerse series (i.e. BuPers/BuShips, refernces to Machiavelli and to Hauptman) like come on, just a plain old copy!
-Style and description of the books, especially action/battle secquences
