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.

Fantastic to see The Vatta series continuing with Vatta's Peace. Character development through the series continues with this work and the Admiral's years of experience is portrayed in the story very well. The addition of Brittany Pressley as narrator was a masterful stroke. After this book, in my mind, she has become the voice of Kylara Vatta.

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.
