Publisher Description

“Marvelously compelling . . . consummate military-adventure science fiction.”—SciFi

In the aftermath of the cold-blooded assassinations that killed her parents and shattered the Vatta interstellar shipping empire, Kylara Vatta sets out to avenge the killings and salvage the family business. Ky soon discovers a conspiracy of terrifying scope, breathtaking audacity, and utter ruthlessness. The only hope against such powerful evil is for all the space merchants to band together. Unfortunately, because she commands a ship that once belonged to a notorious pirate, Ky is met with suspicion, if not outright hostility . . . even from her own cousin. Before she can take the fight to the enemy, Kylara must survive a deadly minefield of deception and betrayal.

Customer Reviews

Mayakaath ,


Elizabeth Moon is a colleague and friend, but that's not why I think these books are so great. Elizabeth is simply a superb writer, and her Vatta's War series is one of the most highly addictive literary substances I've ever encountered.

She gives you characters that are multi-dimensional and complex, and therefore call a host of complex responses from the reader. Then she puts them in complex situations that are never black and white. I got completely caught up in the spot-on pacing of the action, the intrigue, and the characters (especially the marvelous protagonist, Ky).

Engaging the Enemy is my favorite of the series so far, and I literally finished it and went straight back to the iBookstore to get the next book.

So, at the risk of sounding like a pusher, you should really try these books!
