Although the exciting military career she hoped for never got off the ground, Ky Vatta ended up seeing plenty of combat when she took the helm of one of the commercial transport vessels in her family's fleet...and steered it into a full-blown war. Now the lessons she learned in that trial by fire are about to pay off--because this time, the war has come to her. Someone has launched a full-throttle offensive against Vatta Transport Ltd., Ky's father's interstellar shipping empire. In short order, most of Ky's family is killed, and subsequent attacks sever vital lines of communication, leaving Ky fighting, in every sense, to survive. Ky is determined to identify the ruthless mystery enemy and avenge her family's name, but she needs not only firepower but information. And she gets both in spades--from the band of stranded mercenaries she hooks up with; from her black-sheep cousin, Stella, who has been leading a secret life; and from Stella's roguish ex-lover, Rafe. Together they struggle to penetrate the tangled web of political intrigue that is wreaking havoc within InterStellar Communications, on whose effective operation their own livelihoods--and perhaps lives--depend. But the infighting proves to be infectious, and it isn't long before Ky's hired military muscle are turning their suspicions on the enigmatic Rafe, whose wealth of knowledge about ISC's clashing factions and startling new technologies has begun to make him smell like a rat...or a mole. With swift, violent destruction a very real possibility, the last thing Ky needs is a crew divided against itself--and she's prepared to take whatever measures are necessary to ensure that Vatta stays in business, as well as in one piece. What she is not prepared for is the shocking truth behind the terror--and a confrontation with murderous treachery from a source as unexpected as it is unrelenting.… (meer)

I am a big fan of fantasy and science fiction novels especially if they are long and have several books in the series. I really enjoy a series of books that I can immerse myself in and I first picked up an Elizabeth Moon novel because it was long and part of a multi-novel series. I continue to read her books because I find them engrossing and highly enjoyable. ( )

Ky Vatta's survived her first encounter with a hostile universe and thinks she's cut out for life as a trader after all but back home on Slotter Key, dark forces are at work that will see Vatta Enterprises almost destroyed and Slotter Key cut off from the rest of the universe. With the future of her family dependant on Kyla and her supposedly no-good cousin Stella, those people hostile to Vatta thought they would have an easy time implementing their nefarious plans, but Ky and Stella have their own ideas, and they have no intention of letting Vatta go down the drainpipe of history's failures.

This book mainly deals with the initial effects of the attack on Vatta and Ky's realisation that Stella isn't as silly as her reputation ( )

Vatta's War #2
  Ronald.Marcil | Jul 7, 2019 |
After the delightful discovery of this series with the first book, Trading in Danger, I did not wait too long to read the second volume in Elizabeth Moon's Vatta's War, because my curiosity about the main character's continuing journey needed to be satisfied. Sadly, Marque and Reprisal proved to be something of a disappointment, or maybe the victim of excessive expectations, because it did not meet the standards of its predecessor.

In the aftermath of the adventures in book 1, Kylara Vatta does not have time to enjoy her new-found independence [...]
