Butt-kicking, take-no-prisoners heroine Kylara Vatta is back. Once the black-sheep scion of a prosperous merchant family, Kylara now leads a motley space force dedicated to the defeat of a rapacious pirate empire led by the mysterious Gammis Turek. After orchestrating a galaxy-wide failure of the communications network owned and maintained by the powerful ISC corporation, Turek and his marauders strike swiftly and without mercy. First they shatter Vatta Transport. Then they overrun entire star systems, growing stronger and bolder. No one is safe from the pirate fleet. But while they continue to move forward with their diabolical plan, they have made two critical mistakes. Their first mistake was killing Kylara Vatta's family. Their second mistake was leaving her alive. Now Kylara is going to make them pay. But with a "fleet" consisting of only three ships--including her flagship, the Vanguard, a souped-up merchant cruiser--Kylara needs allies, and fast. Because even though she possesses the same coveted communication technology as the enemy, she has nowhere near their numbers or firepower. Meanwhile, as Kylara's cousin Stella tries to bring together the shattered pieces of the family trading empire, new treachery is unfolding at ISC headquarters, where undercover agent Rafael Dunbarger, estranged son of the corporation's CEO, is trying to learn why the damaged network is not being repaired. What he discovers will send shock waves across the galaxy and crashing into Kylara's newly christened Space Defense Force at the worst possible moment.… (altro)

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 has assembled a meager fleet under her command and is determined to root out the pirates who are attacking defenseless planets. Meanwhile her family is rebuilding after being nearly wiped out. She has ship-board ansibles for sale.

Ky Vatta ahs put together a squadron of ships but they're not really a unified command yet after years of working as independent privateers and her problems aren't helped when a coup against the head of ISC leads to Vatta Trading being registered as an enemy of ISC, and ISC had a harsh policy against those who attempted to break its monopoly on interstellar communications. Meanwhile, Ky aids a mercenary fleet escape the pirate ambush as the first action of her new fleet. Meanwhile Stella and Toby start making inroads on re-establishing Vatta's trading empire.

This book has a lot of action going on and Ms Moon just about keeps on top of the various threads ( )
  JohnFair | Dec 13, 2019 |
Feels very much like a setting up book, not that much happens, and there's a wider focus on characters away from Ky who spends a lot of time 'training' her little fleet, and not actually doing.

The other main characters this time around are Stella, who's found her feet running what's left of the Vatta business, and Rafe who discovers his family - the head of the IFS ansible monopoly - to have been abducted without the rest of the corporation knowing. This alongside Ky provides various opportunities to look at different circumstances of command, between the military obvious ones, through to more personal choices of family and finance.

It all moves along quite well, but it's hardly deep writing. But if you've enjoyed the previous ones this is no worse. We get to meet more humods in another shape/size/colour but this hardly adds to the cultural contexts. ( )
