I think so, because the series got a renaming - from Travis Long Trilogy to Manticore Ascendant.
After all, the real event that Manticore made to the star nation we learned about in OBS did not happen yet - the discovery of the Manticore Wormhole Junction.

I will then have an exercise in patience (probably at least a year) :D

Last I heard, a total of 7 books in the series are now under contract or written.

The author claimed he planned on killing Honor in the climatic battle of the series, similar to Nelson. Since he is continuing his main series, Travis might get the epic death scene, as his ship battles the enemy.

Yes, someone had to die for the emotional impact.

all I have to say is I love this new series almost as much as the original Honor Harrington series and I will be anxiously waiting by my computer to snatch the next book just as soon as it is released. Thank you to all the authors and people involved in providing me with such awesome entertainment.

That translates into 11 or 12 books in the main plot line and, since it's in the Honorverse, at least 2 spin off subplots of 3-4 books each, right? :D :lol:
