I had read the Vatta’s War series and enjoyed it. I just discovered Elizabeth Moon has come out with an addition called Vatta’s Peace. "Cold Welcome" is the first book in the new series.
Kylara Vatta is a Grand Admiral now and is returning to visit her home planet of Slatter’s Key. Instead, her shuttle is sabotaged. Vatta and crew are stranded in the icy waters of the South Polar Sea. The story then changes to one of survival. This is a much different situation than I was expecting from a science fiction story.
The book is well written. The characters are intriguing. The plotting is great and the story is realistic. I remember Aunt Gracie and her fruit cakes from the first series. She is back in this story. The story has lots of intrigue and suspense. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
The book is fourteen hours long. Brittany Pressley does a good job narrating the story. Pressley is a singer, songwriter and voice- over artist. She has won several earphone awards for audiobook narration.

I loved the original Vatta's War series, though there were a few discrepancies throughout the books and Ms. Moon went a little overboard with people's issues with Kylara's love life and it's impact on politics and her ability to perform her job. The new Vatta's Peace seems to be taking this ridiculousness to a whole new level. As a former member of the military I found the way the people who were stranded with her, especially a member of her own staff, behaved in their situation to be completely ludicrous. I know Ms. Moon is an outstanding author after having also read her Paksenarrion series so I am really hoping she will reign in some of the more silly plot devices as she continues the series.

Elizabeth Moon is one of my favourite authors and I was most definitely not disappointed with this one. The story was very good and I badly want to see that under ground base and work out what or who built it! Just like the rest of the series there was plenty of action without overdoing the techno talk, good characters and more then enough left unexplained for another couple of books. Hope we don't have to wait to long for the next one. 😁
Well written, well performed but a poor story. It might have made a short story but this was way too long.
