Ky Vatta teams up with a' band of stranded mercenaries, he black-sheep cousin Stella, and Stalla ex-lover to penetrate a web of political intrigue...". Another Moon adventure...a good read!
I thought this was better than the first book. Good read, good characters, even a dog this time!
Some of the scenes and dialogue don't quite ring true, but especially when the action starts it pulls you along. I plan to read the next in the series.
Elizabeth Moon is an author who gives you a good story and keeps the excitement up. THis whole series is well thought out. I like it and my son, 15 when he read it liked it too. It has a smart, strategically strong thinking female hero and a cast of interesting characters.
Reading her makes me think and I like that.
A nice continuation of CHANGE OF COMMAND.
This book is actually titled AGAINST THE ODDS. Same book as MARQUE AND REPRISAL. Which title depends on whether it was printed in Great Britain or in the US.
Book 2 - Trading in Danger is book 1
This is a wonderful Space Soap Opera with 5 books, and a strong female lead. I enjoyed the first book the best, and went with Kindle for the immediate gratification of reading the next 4 books.
