Given how easy it is for me to be sucked into book series, you'd think I'd be more careful than to read a book that's the first of (at this point) seventeen novels. Oops.
On Basilisk Station introduces Honor Harrington who is, more or less, a space (and female) version of Horatio Hornblower. Pretty good, if you like that sort of thing (space and naval fiction, that is).
