Admiral Ky Vatta should return to her childhood home a war hero, but on the way her shuttle is downed by sabotage.

Marooned in a hostile landscape it'll take every bit of wit, skill and luck she can muster to lead her fellow survivors to safety, knowing that the mysterious enemies who destroyed the ship are on the hunt, and may have an agent in the group ready to finish the job at any moment. And was the sabotage an attempt on Ky's own life, or someone else's?

About the Author

Elizabeth Moon served in the US Marine Corps, reaching the rank of 1st Lieutenant during active duty. She has also earned degrees in history and biology, run for public office and been a columnist on her local newspaper. She lives near Austin, Texas, with her husband and their son. Twenty-six of her books are in print, and she won the Nebula Award with her science fiction novel Speed of Dark (also shortlisted for the Clarke Award), and was a finalist for the Hugo in 1997.

If you get a buzz from dodging assassins, wheeling and dealing, and zooming around space at FTL speed, then check out this SF military adventure . . . When Ky engages the enemy, Moon does a cracking job of engaging you

A rollercoaster ride of combat and intrigue. Fast-moving action set in a classic space-opera universe, with plenty of plot surprises and a likeably tough heroine

Gorgeous . . . I galloped through them . . . I don't know when I enjoyed a trilogy so much

Strong characterisation, subtle humour and a feel for military SF make this dynastic space opera a strong addition for all SF collections
