Nebula Award-winning author Elizabeth Moon makes a triumphant return to science fiction with a thrilling series featuring Kylara Vatta, the daring hero of her acclaimed Vatta's War sequence.

After nearly a decade away, Nebula Award-winning author Elizabeth Moon makes a triumphant return to science fiction with this installment in a thrilling new series featuring the daring hero of her acclaimed Vatta's War sequence.

Summoned to the home planet of her family's business empire, space-fleet commander Kylara Vatta is told to expect a hero's welcome. But instead she is thrown into danger unlike any other she has faced and finds herself isolated, unable to communicate with the outside world, commanding a motley group of unfamiliar troops, and struggling day by day to survive in a deadly environment with sabotaged gear. Only her undeniable talent for command can give her ragtag band a fighting chance.

Yet even as Ky leads her team from one crisis to another, her family and friends refuse to give up hope, endeavoring to mount a rescue from halfway around the planet--a task that is complicated as Ky and her supporters find secrets others will kill to protect: a conspiracy infecting both government and military that threatens not only her own group's survival but her entire home planet.

I love this author's writing. She has a unique perspective as an older woman with a military pedigree and her strong female characters in a sci-fi universe are a great role model. I really like her other book 'Remnant Population' but this book looks like a good beginning for a new series.

Its been so long since I read the books that happened before this, i felt a little bit lost and confused throughout. The ending hints at a sequel.
But i enjoyed this book and I don't think it works that great as a stand alone. Read the others first.

After the first five books about Kylara Vatta, this was extremely slow and uninteresting -- and the ending was particularly ridiculous.
