"The Mesan Alignment has a plan--one it's been working on for centuries. A plan to remake the galaxy and genetically improve the human race--its way. Until recently, things have gone pretty much as scheduled but then the Alignment hit two bumps in the road: one called the Star Empire of Manticore, the other named Honor Harrington. In order to undercut Manticore's galaxy-wide reputation as a star nation of its word, it launched Operation Janus--a false-flag covert operation to encourage rebellions it knows will fail by promising Manticoran support. The twin purposes are to harden Solarian determination to destroy the Star Empire and to devestate its reputation with the rest of the galaxy. But even the best laid plans can have unintended consequences, and one of those consequences might just be the dawn of freedom for oppressed star nations everywhere"-- Provided by publisher.

Reluctant to read this book past two years due to huge negative 800+ reviews on Amazon.
Fans fumed on 3 year wait hoping for going forward starring Honor Harrington only to rehashing past year or so again from the bad guys perspective their galaxy takeover went south despite new sideshow subplots, minor characters & typical infodump tome.
One step forward, four steps backwards.
I have more questions than answers. Antagonist's children were cloned sons. What was antagonist's wife. Was she a female version of himself?
