Publisher's Summary

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.

Mispronounced words are driving me batty!!!

Would you listen to Cold Welcome again? Why?

Probably will -- love the author and series.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

If the narrator can't be bothered to get common pronunciations of words as COMMON as "potable" and "commandant" they need a better narrator.

Pathetic narration

What did you like best about Cold Welcome? What did you like least?

Typical Elizabeth Moon quality, poor choice of narrator.


What didn’t you like about Brittany Pressley’s performance?

Mispronunciation of a significant number of words. Command-dent for Commandant, saying that the Command-dent was an alley, etc, etc.
