Vatta's War
3 : Engaging the Enemy (1 of 2)

by Elizabeth Moon
Jun 1, 2010
6 Hours
Ages 13+
In the aftermath of the cold-blooded assassinations that killed her parents and shattered the Vatta intersteller shipping empire, Kylara Vatta sets out to avenge the killings and salvage the family business. Ky soon discovers a conspiracy of terrifying scope, breathtaking audacity, and utter ruthlessness. The only hope against such powerful evil is for all the space merchants to band together. Unfortunately, because she commands a ship that once belonged to a notorious pirate, Ky is met with suspicion, if not outright hostility...even from her own cousin. Before she can take the fight to the enemy, Kylara must survive a deadly minefield of deception and betrayal.

Vatta's War 3 by G. (Posted on 8/18/2018)
The writing is fluid but stays on subject. The characters are becoming more well fleshed out. Good start to third book.
Book 3 Sets All the Pieces in Motion by Bill (Posted on 11/22/2017)
Third book in the intriguing VATTA'S WAR saga finally begins to coalesce all the disparate parts and adds backstory to the major players, with teasing hints at how they all might intersect. Moon makes even the mundane activities of everyday business and life interesting, and manages to mix in some humor, and odd characters that has me scratching my head at times. But I've come to trust the author, and believe it will all make sense. However, the narrative is not all sugar and light, as bad things sometimes happen to good characters. I fear for the fate of Rascal....As always, the GA squad (actors, music, effects) are top notch. A truly fun space series.

My husband and I enjoy this series
Engaging the Enemy by Beetle15 (Posted on 1/21/2017)
I liked these books when I read them years ago and GA's production has made them even more enjoyable. Excellent acting, music and sound effects. Extra points for the great (and consistent) accent of Cascadia's people. Make sure to listen to the first two books before starting on this one.
Universe Expansion and Character Depth by Travis (Posted on 8/19/2016)
I'm really liking this one so far. The addition of more character POVs provides the story with more depth and expanse. GA's production is, as always, superb. The combination of music and sound effects with the narration and dialogue enhance the listening experience.
Vatta's War 3 (one of two) by Arlon (Posted on 2/17/2016)
Really gets you involved and with more surprises. Easy to get into the Vatta family.
Deepening the Characters by Catdaddy (Posted on 9/18/2014)
As we get deeper into the Vatta series, the scale keeps getting larger and larger. What began with one woman's story expanded to the story of her world, and here we expand again to the story of organizing galactic conflict involving several planetary systems. It also becomes increasingly important to have listened to the earlier books. This follows directly on the heels of “Book 2: Marque and Reprisal," with only a little time spent on catching the listener up. The pace remains deliberate, but the details are extremely rewarding. Even so, some action scenes come as a surprise and others are delivered delivered in retrospect, from the perspective of various participants.

It is extremely rewarding listening. If you've already invested some time into the series, this does not disappoint in any way. In fact, it benefits from your relationships with the characters in measurably. I mean, who wouldn't want to learn more about Aunt Gracie's backstory? She's kind of awesome.

Again, the rating is a soft PG-13, with some intense violence and a bit of bloodshed, but no sex and, sometimes incongruously, no "bad language" at all.
Review by William Wiggins (Posted on 5/23/2013)
While the third book throws an over abundance of characters at you early on, it continues on course, delivering great plot lines, good humor, and a fair amount of interstellar action. Can't wait for Book 4 to get finished.
