Command And Decision

Moon, Elizabeth
Kylara Vatta commands the Third Fleet of the Space Defense Force in the fourth book of the Vatta's War series.

Words I Had To Look Up:

Latrine (pg. 33) -- I thought it would be called the "head" on a ship.

Quote:

"The rule with hypothermia: they're not dead until they're warm and dead." -- pg. 129.

Divided Allegiance

Moon, Elizabeth
Book II of The Deed Of Paksenarrion. Since there is another book I guess she hasn't done the Deed yet. Ha ha. I liked reading this book very much, but the print is too small in paperback, 522 pages worth of small!I am looking forward to book three.

Engaging The Enemy

Moon, Elizabeth
Book 3 in the Kylara Vatta series. Ky learns something about Stella, escapes from a space battle with pirates. Aunt Grace loses her grip for a while...

Quote:

"...For one thing, they don't break. They never require cleaning. They never need repair or adjustment. Anything that damages one of them will destroy the house around it. They all monitor for a wide range of health concerns. And they have the most comfortable seats..." (pg. 59) -- Sounds like quite a toilet!

Kings Of The North

Moon, Elizabeth
Paladin's Legacy book 2. I find myself starting off slow, then getting all enthused. Now I've finished this one and I don't have the next. What shall I do? Glad to see a "loose end" may be getting tied up soon.

Marque And Reprisal

Moon, Elizabeth
Further adventures of Kylara Vatta. Her family and their business are attacked by persons unknown, she meets a fellow name Rafe, and gains a new understanding of Stella, and her aunt Gracie. A rotten pun on page 311. Be forewarned!

Words I Had To Look Up:

Inchoate (pg. 211) -- Not yet completed or fully developed; rudimentary.
Relative Vee (pg. 63) -- Still I don't know what relative vee and delta vee are!

Oath Of Fealty

Moon, Elizabeth
Paladin's Legacy #1. I wasn't real motivated by the book in the beginning, but all of a sudden I was nearing the end and I'm think, "I really like this!" So there you are.

Trading In Danger

Moon, Elizabeth
Kylara Vatta is kicked out of Space Academy and is sent by her family on a trading voyage. Good space opera, but the print is too small! I was noticing there was no cussing in the book, but near the end there was a B**** and a ***hole. Why?

Reminiscent of The President's Analyst, we learn do not mess with the Phone Company!

Words I Had To Look Up:

Ansible (pg. 93) -- An instantaneous communications device. First noted usage by LeGuin in 1966. http://www.jessesword.com/sf/view/16

Gorked (pg. 147) -- Medical slang for a terminal patient whose brain is nonfunctional.

Quote:

The old woman was still angry. Not scared a bit--well, the old were like that, if they weren't scared of everything. (pg. 180)

Quote:

"How well do you know that old code they used in the war?" -- (pg. 222) This is why we learn Morse code, folks!
