For Kylara Vatta, it's not just about liberating the star systems subjugated by Gammis Turek and defending the rest of the galaxy's freedom. There is also a score to be settled and payback to be meted out for the obliteration of the Vatta Transport dynasty...and the slaughter of Ky's family. But the enemy have their own escalation efforts under way-including the placement of covert agents among the allies with whom Ky and the surviving Vattas are collaborating in the war effort. And when a spy ring linked to a wealthy businessman is exposed, a cracked pirate code reveals a galaxy-wide conspiracy fueling the proliferation of Turek's warship fleet. Matching the invaders' swelling firepower will mean marshaling an armada of battle-ready ships for Ky to lead into combat. But a violent skirmish leaves Ky reeling-and presumed dead by her enemies. Now, as Turek readies an all-out attack on the Nexus system-a key conquest that could seal the rest of the galaxy's doom-Ky must rally to the challenge, draw upon every last reserve of her strategic skills, and reach deep if she is to tear from the ashes of tragedy her most decisive victory.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen Helme | 2/9/2014

    " This is the final installment of the Vatta books and was a great finish. It started out right where Command Decision left off and tied up all the loose ends. All in all this was a great series that I will read again and highly recommend to anyone who likes SF. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah S | 2/2/2014

    " Ends with no loose ends, but the story wasn't driven by the individuals and their interactions either. "

    " great conclusion to the series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon Appelcline | 1/30/2014

    " Weaker than the rest of the series, with a feeling of inevitability and insufficient focus on the characters. Still, a fair ending to a good series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy | 1/5/2014

    " A satisfying conclusion to the "Vatta's War" series. To do a plot synopsis would give away too much. If you like space opera at all, or kick-ass space military heroines, check this one out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brad | 12/22/2013

    " While the series as a whole was good and I enjoyed it. It was very action packed. Overall I say the series was about a three stars. The good guys or gals mostly you knew were going to win. Not much time was spent on the bad guy. But still I was entertained. "
