Admiral Ky Vatta should return to her childhood home a war hero, but on the way her shuttle is downed by sabotage.

Marooned in a hostile landscape it'll take every bit of wit, skill and luck she can muster to lead her fellow survivors to safety, knowing that the mysterious enemies who destroyed the ship are on the hunt, and may have an agent in the group ready to finish the job at any moment. And was the sabotage an attempt on Ky's own life, or someone else's?

Reviews for Cold Welcome (#1 Vattas Peace)

If you get a buzz from dodging assassins, wheeling and dealing, and zooming around space at FTL speed, then check out this SF military adventure . . . When Ky engages the enemy, Moon does a cracking job of engaging you A rollercoaster ride of combat and intrigue. Fast-moving action set in a classic space-opera universe, with plenty of plot surprises and a likeably tough heroine Gorgeous . . . I galloped through them . . . I don't know when I enjoyed a trilogy so much Strong characterisation, subtle humour and a feel for military SF make this dynastic space opera a strong addition for all SF collections
