ELIZABETH MOON MARQUE AND REPRISAL PDF

Call it a 4. It definitely requires having first read Trading In Danger. Aside from these two very minor complaints, Marque And Reprisal is well done. Edit: I want to add how refreshing it was for Ky minor spoiler! I have published a longer review on my website.

Sadly, Marque and Reprisal proved to be something of a disappointment, or maybe the victim of excessive expectations, because it did not meet the standards of its predecessor. Ky finds herself cut off from any kind of help and must rely on her wits, her small crew and the help of the few friends she can find, namely the mercenaries she met in the previous novel and her cousin Stella, the family infamous black sheep: surviving the attempts on her life while staying financially afloat, and finding clues about the attacks and the people behind them, will require an even more difficult balancing act, and Kylara will need to grow a thicker hide and quicker wits if she wants to keep herself and what remains of Vatta in one piece.

While Ky works to show her competence has not been impaired by the good-faith mistake that had her thrown out of the Academy, and that she can learn from that mistake and better herself, Stella has learned to use her fiasco as a form of deception, as a mask for the cunning and skills she has honed since then. The moments in which the two cousins are able to compare notes, and to start understanding each other better, are among the best in the novel.

If you feel like rolling your eyes in exasperation, please do: I will join you gladly. Over the top does not even start to cover it…. What I enjoyed was the general attitude of planetary governments and private contractors toward Kylara and her crew: once it becomes clear that Vatta is the target of an organization capable of extreme violence, everyone turns their backs on her and her family, as if afraid of being tainted by proximity.

What annoyed me, on the other hand, is the paternalistic attitude that Ky is forced to endure from many sides: in her first voyage as a newly-minted captain it would have been understandable, particularly since an impulsive choice had been the reason for her banishment from the Academy, but now she has a successful — and very difficult — first run under her belt, one where she was able to show her mettle and the ability of thinking on her feet.

MARQUE AND REPRISAL

The books follow the adventures of Kylara Vatta, a young member of the Vatta family, which runs the interstellar shipping corporation Vatta Enterprises. She had sought a life outside the family business by enrolling in the Slotter Key Spaceforce Academy, but she is forced to resign in her final year and assigned to captain an old trading ship for the corporation. Her military training is put to good use, however, during the crises she faces, first as a ship captain in dangerous situations, and later as the representative of a family under attack. The first book, Trading in Danger , is narrowly focused on Ky and the local crisis in which she becomes involved. The perspective expands in the later books as connections between piracy and ansible attacks on the one hand and Vatta Enterprises and InterStellar Communications Corporation ISC on the other are revealed.

Review: MARQUE AND REPRISAL (Vatta’s War #2), by Elizabeth Moon

Old School Wednesdays is a weekly Book Smuggler feature. We came up with the idea towards the end of , when both Ana and Thea were feeling exhausted from the never-ending inundation of New and Shiny and often over-hyped books. What better way to snap out of a reading fugue than to take a mini-vacation into the past? Logo designed by the wonderful KMont.
