Kylara Vatta is the only daughter in a family full of sons, and her father’s only child to buck tradition by choosing a military career instead of joining the family business. For Ky, it’s no contest: Even running the prestigious Vatta Transport Ltd. shipping concern can’t hold a candle to shipping...
With the Vatta's War series, award-winning author Elizabeth Moon has claimed a place alongside such preeminent writers of military science fiction as David Weber and Lois McMaster Bujold. Now Moon is back and so is her butt-kicking, take-no-prisoners heroine, Kylara Vatta. Once the black-sheep...

The exciting military career she hoped for never got off...
THIS RATING AND REVIEW ARE FOR THE AUDIO EDITION I (TRIED TO) LISTEN(ED) TO ONLY. I WILL MAKE A FEW COMMENTS ABOUT THE BOOK BUT THE RATING IS ABOUT THIS AUDIO VERSION.
Some of you may know that Elizabeth Moon wrote one of my all time favorite series including a trilogy I think of as one novel. So I hate...

In this quite entrancing space adventure, we have Esmay Suiza as the main character. Now, those like myself who read previous books by this author will have met Esmay as a side character in Winning Colors (The Serrano Legacy, #3) where she was a key factor in the resolution of that adventure. The first...
Rules of Engagement is the sequel to Once a Hero (1997), and shares some supporting characters with the Heris Serrano trilogy (1993-95). It's reasonably self-contained, though you'll enjoy it more if you've read some of the preceding books, all of which I've liked.
Esmay Suiza is a likeably...

As Admiral Kylara Vatta learned after she and a shipfull of strangers were marooned on an inhospitable...
This book is the grand conclusion to the Serrano Legacy by Elizabeth Moon. In my experience in most series, the first book is the best and the rest don't quite measure up. Not so with this series. Each book was a great read but this one, the last is definitely the best. In this one all the surviving characters...

This omnibus wraps up the 7-book series. Everything is pretty nicely tied up. There are just a couple of loose ends (view spoiler)[ the heretic priest doesn't seem to have a real function except to introduce the captain to the actress, and I kept waiting for the professor to clear up the Altiplano history...
