Ky Vatta is a highly promising military cadet with a great future ahead of her, until an apparently insignificant act of kindness makes her the focus of the Academy's wrath. She is forced to resign, her dreams shattered. For the child of a rich trading family, this should mean disgrace on a grand scale. And yet, to her surprise, Ky is offered the captaincy of a ship headed for scrap with its final cargo. Her orders are absolutely clear, but Ky quickly sees potential profit in altering the parameters of the journey. Because, whatever the risks, it's in her blood to trade - even if the currency is extreme danger. 'I thoroughly adored Trading in Danger and wholeheartedly recommend it' THE BOOK SMUGGLERS

Nebula Award–winning author Elizabeth Moon makes a triumphant return to science fiction with a thrilling series featuring Kylara Vatta, the daring hero of her acclaimed Vatta’s War sequence. 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. Praise for Elizabeth Moon Trading in Danger “A mix of space opera, military science fiction and human drama, this is an exciting and often touching novel.”—RT Book Reviews Marque and Reprisal “Excellent plotting and characters support the utterly realistic action sequences: swift, jolting, confusing, and merciless. It’s a corker!”—Kirkus Reviews Engaging the Enemy “Moon has created a richly imagined universe of different cultures, replete with intriguing characters and the sense of unlimited possibility that characterizes the most appealing science fiction.”—School Library Journal Command Decision “One of scifi’s best military space series . . . confirms Moon’s place with Lois McMaster Bujold and David Weber in the top tier of turn-of-the-millennium military SF writers.”—Syfy Victory Conditions “Rip-roaring action and intriguing science and tactics distinguish Nebula winner Moon’s fifth and final Vatta’s War installment. . . . A fine and fitting conclusion to Moon’s grand space opera tour de force.”—Publishers Weekly

Μια ιστορία για χαμένους παράδεισους, χαμένους έρωτες και χρόνια χαμένα στη σιωπή. Η Κατρίνε έχει μια στρωμένη ζωή στο Λονδίνο ως ραδιοφωνική ανταποκρίτρια. Όλα όμως ανατρέπονται όταν χάνει τη δουλειά της λόγω περικοπών και αναγκάζεται να επιστρέψει στη Στοκχόλμη. Η επάνοδός της στην πατρίδα θα τη φέρει αντιμέτωπη με την τραγική κατάσταση της μητέρας της, η οποία πάσχει από προχωρημένη άνοια. Τακτοποιώντας τα πράγματα της μητέρας της, η Κατρίνε θα διαπιστώσει πως υπάρχουν πολλά που δεν γνώριζε για την οικογενειακή τους ζωή, μεταξύ των οποίων και ένα περιουσιακό στοιχείο: ένα σπίτι στο βορινό χωριό Κιβικάνγκας, κοντά στον ποταμό Τόρνε, όπου πρόσφατα ένας διάσημος σκιέρ δολοφονήθηκε με το ίδιο του το τσεκούρι. Ανατρέχοντας στις σκοτεινότερες στιγμές της πρόσφατης ιστορίας της Σοβιετικής Ένωσης, η Alsterdal ξετυλίγει το κουβάρι ενός νουάρ οικογενειακού χρονικού ξεκινώντας από το βόρειο άκρο της Σουηδίας, από τις όχθες του ποταμού Τόρνε…

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Elizabeth Moon's Echoes of Betrayal. NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Peace and order have been restored to the kingdoms of Tsaia and Lyonya, thanks to the crowning of Mikeli of Tsaia and the half-elven mercenary Kieri Phelan as their respective kings. But trouble is brewing. Mikeli cannot rule safely as long as the few remaining Verrakaien magelords are at large. And a strange rift has developed between Kieri and his grandmother and co-ruler, the immortal elven queen known as the Lady. Meanwhile, both monarchs are targets of the ex-pirate Alured, who plots to seize their thrones for himself—and to the north, the aggressive kingdom of Pargun seems poised to invade. As threats of war, from without and within, divide the two kings, old alliances and the bonds of friendship will be tested as never before. And a shocking discovery will change everything.
