Cold Welcome

by Elizabeth Moon

Series: Vatta’s Peace  #1

Genre: Science Fiction

Publication date: April 13

Synopsis: 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.


The reasons this book appeals to me:
  • Elizabeth Moon is one of my favorite authors.
  • The Vatta’s War series is one of my favorite series.
  • I’m excited to see a new science fiction book by Elizabeth Moon.
  • I want to read this book!

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. I’ve heard of Elizabeth Moon but I haven’t read any of hers. I don’t read space opera, but I hope it’s a good one for you if you get it!


  2. Ooo… *hopping up and down in excitement* I LOVE this series and I hadn’t realised there was a new book coming out! I MUST get hold of this one – many, many thanks for the heads-up:)
