The Korpes Agenda by J.I. Rogers My rating: 5 of 5 stars WARNING: Contains spoilers for The Korpes File. I exchanged copies of my books for copies of J.I.

I’m re-reading the last ten books in the Honorverse space opera series by David Weber in true chronological order. That is to say, I am reading it all as if it were one big story, not several separate books, in the order in which the events described took place (as much as possible.)
