Vatta's War
2 : Marque and Reprisal (2 of 2)

by Elizabeth Moon
Apr 1, 2010
6 Hours
Ages 13+
Although the exciting military career she hoped for never got off the ground, Ky Vatta ended up seeing plenty of combat when she took the helm of one of the commercial transport vessels in her family's fleet...and steered it into a full-blown war. Now the lessons she learned in that trial by fire are about to pay off - because this time, the war has come to her. Someone has launched a full-throttle offensive against Vatta Transport Ltd., Ky's father's interstellar shipping empire. In short order, most of Ky's family is killed, and subsequent attacks sever vital lines of communication, leaving Ky fighting, in every sense, to survive.

Ky is determined to identify the ruthless mystery enemy and avenge her family's name, but she needs not only firepower but information. And she gets both in spades-from the band of stranded mercenaries she hooks up with; from her black-sheep cousin, Stella, who has been leading a secret life; and from Stella's roguish ex-lover, Rafe. Together they struggle to penetrate the tangled web of political intrigue that is wreaking havoc within InterStellar Communications, on whose effective operation their own livelihoods-and perhaps lives-depend.

But the infighting proves to be infectious, and it isn't long before Ky's hired military muscle are turning their suspicions on the enigmatic Rafe, whose wealth of knowledge about ISC's clashing factions and startling new technologies has begun to make him smell like a rat...or a mole. With swift, violent destruction a very real possibility, the last thing Ky needs is a crew divided against itself-and she's prepared to take whatever measures are necessary to ensure that Vatta stays in business, as well as in one piece.

What she is not prepared for is the shocking truth behind the terror-and a confrontation with murderous treachery from a source as unexpected as it is unrelenting.

Vatta's War 2 - Part 2 by Travis (Posted on 8/5/2016)
Loving the direction the story is taking with this one. The addition of Stella and Rafe are great, and I enjoyed listening to this story. Graphic Audio, as always, does a superb job of adapting the book for audio. The acting, music, and sound effects all add to the enjoyment. I look forward to listening to the next in the series.

just keeps getting better by Mason (Posted on 9/21/2014)
I really like this series. the suspense and action is a very good. If you have kept up to the series to this point, keep going because it keeps getting better.
Continuing one of GAs finest productions by Catdaddy (Posted on 9/18/2014)
The second half of Book 2 deeps the story. Elizabeth Moon continues to fill situations with such detail that the verisimilitude is palpable, as she did in her trilogy, "The Deed of Paksenarrion" (and, GraphicAudio? These truly are set in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth. You need to adapt them. I'm sure you've noticed that Those Movies have made more then a few dollars?)

Here you get the full language of trade agreements and concerns for shipping out with enough pairs of underpants. And, apparently, bloodstains make a spacesuit smell terrible.

It’s a good ride. As with Part I (and the entire series) the rating is a soft PG-13, with some intense violence and a bit of bloodshed, but no sex nor any "bad language" at all. Listening to "Marque and Reprisal part 1 of 2" first is essential to following this story. Highest marks.

Excellent story. I love all the space trading mixed in with corporate espionage. Keep them coming
Review by William Wiggins (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Another great book in the series. The plot keeps advancing, drawing you deeper into the action and intrigue of the story line. A most enjoyable listen.
