Ages 13+
For Ky, it's not just about liberating the star systems subjugated by Turek and defending the rest of the galaxy's freedom. There's also a score to be settled and payback to be meted out for the obliteration of the Vatta Transport dynasty . . . and the slaughter of Ky's family. But the enemy have their own escalation efforts under way-including the placement of covert agents among the allies with whom Ky and the surviving Vattas are collaborating in the war effort. And when a spy ring linked to a wealthy businessman is exposed, a cracked pirate code reveals a galaxywide conspiracy fueling the proliferation of Turek's warship fleet.

Matching the invaders' swelling firepower will mean marshaling an armada of battle-ready ships for Ky to lead into combat. But a violent skirmish leaves Ky reeling-and presumed dead by her enemies. Now, as Turek readies an all-out attack on the Nexus system-a key conquest that could seal the rest of the galaxy's doom-Ky must rally to the challenge, draw upon every last reserve of her strategic skills, and reach deep if she is to tear from the ashes of tragedy her most decisive victory.

Epic Conclusion by Travis (Posted on 10/11/2016)
GA does what it does best, making a movie in your mind. The final battle between Kylara Vatta's SDF and the pirates commences. The space battle was done extremely well, with the combination of music and sound effects adding to the narration and dialogue. There was one point where the theme song started to play during a brief lull in the battle, and it gave me goosebumps. It was so epic. What I liked the most is that the story doesn't end with the battle, but gives you some of the aftermath, so you can have some character storylines wrapped up.

I enjoyed listening to this series. It had just the right blend of action and drama, and sci-fi action, with a good dash of character development. A very satisfying listen. Thanks.

My wife and I both enjoyed the full series. We found it very entertaining and it held our attention. If you like a strong heroin and enjoy scfi we highly recommend this audio book.

The Payoff by Catdaddy (Posted on 10/3/2014)
One might expect the last half of the last book to be a six-hour battle – but that would not be in keeping with the Elizabeth Moon's style in this series. Instead it is intensely tactical, with plenty of time for battle plans and surveillance. But the individual storylines do get emotionally intense.

There are some peculiar problems with the sound mix in this final half of the book: in part 4 at 12:30, a music cue notably over-balances the narrator for one minute, and in part 3 at 57:16, we have fully a nine-minute scene where one background sound effect (a helicopter, hovering) suddenly drowns out the dialogue for no apparent reason. In part 5, we have an oddly awkward scene transition at 23:00. Perhaps the editing work on the first hours of the last section was done in some haste?

Apparently, GraphicAudio was saving their best work for the biggest scene of the last two hours, which is explosive. The layers of sound in the battle are meticulous and captivating.

None of this, of course, reflects on the writing and especially the voice work, which is outstanding and utterly gripping. These sixty hours - all 10 parts of the five books - tell a single, long story. It is one that will hold you in its clutches for as many hours after you are done.
Vatta'a War set by David (Posted on 11/3/2013)
I imensely enjoyed the entire set. Started with CDs & ended with downloads.
There were numerous mentions of 'human occupied space'. I would like to hear Ky's encounters with non-human races.
Review by William Wiggins (Posted on 5/23/2013)
OMG! The finale to this series was incredible, the final battle for Nexus was absolutely riveting. Had to listen to that twice. The complete series(5 Books) is the best investment I've made in years. I have listened to the first 4 books 3 times while waiting for the last book to get finished. This is the BEST series I have come across of anything out there. Get the WHOLE Series to appreciate all that this story has to offer. Definitely 10 out of 10 Stars!
