Publisher Description

“An utterly satisfying adventure . . . In Kylara Vatta, Moon has created another tough and complex heroine.”—Scifi

Though the exciting military career she hoped for never materialized, Ky Vatta still sees plenty of combat. An unknown adversary has launched a full-throttle offensive against Vatta Transport Ltd., Ky’s father’s interstellar shipping empire—killing most of Ky’s family. Fighting for her very survival, Ky is determined to avenge her family’s deaths. Teaming up with a band of stranded mercenaries, her black-sheep cousin Stella, and Stella’s roguish ex-lover, Ky struggles to penetrate the tangled web of political intrigue that surrounds the attacks. Amid suspicion and deception, she is prepared to take whatever measures are necessary to ensure that Vatta stays in business. What she’s not prepared for is the shocking truth behind the terror— and a confrontation with murderous treachery. . . .

Marque and Reprisal

This is only the second book by Elizabeth Moon I've read, the second in the 'Vatta' series. I found it intense, in that I didn't want to put it down, but had to it digest it and slow the pace a bit. I found it well written, especially her descriptive language about the physics and movement in zero G space. I enjoyed her characterizations and their personal interactions and politics. I also enjoyed their banter and sexual tensions. The bearing of the on board personnel along with the mercenaries was spot on. The space station and downside interactions are portrayed well in that all peoples have these prejudices and mannerisms .
