    1. THIS RATING AND REVIEW ARE FOR THE AUDIO EDITION I (TRIED TO) LISTEN(ED) TO ONLY. I WILL MAKE A FEW COMMENTS ABOUT THE BOOK BUT THE RATING IS ABOUT THIS AUDIO VERSION.Some of you may know that Elizabeth Moon wrote one of my all time favorites series including a trilogy I think of as one novel. So I hate that I've never been able to like her space operas. I mean I've tried and the first in this series was pretty good but I just haven't been able to get involvedEVER I got the audio version of this [...]


    2. Kylara Vatta has finally made it to Lastaway, safely delivered her original cargo, and is on her way to her next trading port when she suddenly finds herself in charge of much more than the command of Fair Kaleen and her crew. There is little doubt someone or someones are out to get Vatta Transport, Ltd, but now other trading companies are under attack as well. Ky’s novice Captain skills are put to the test again as she tries to avoid trouble and postpone her grief. Corleigh has been hit hard [...]




    3. I devoured Book Three.If the first two books were about loss of family, this one begins to question what is family, exactly? Is family who raised you? Or who, genetically, you are related to? If those two things are different, which one is more important, defines you more? At the end of Book Two, Ky kills a relative, who at that time we (the readers) believe is the ultimate bad guy in the series. She takes his ship, gaining weapons and a ship with which to rebuild the Vatta empire. And she final [...]


    4. "If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs . . . you'll be a Man, my son!" wrote Rudyard Kipling. Well, Kylara kept her head and saved her crew, but it wasn't as if she had much help. Moon's tried and true plot device of "Everything I done and not done has [given us trouble]" is getting long of tooth. Similarly everyone continually having concerns but delaying communicating them with others is getting too obvious as a plot device, too. That said, the quality of Moon's storyt [...]


    5. A good space adventure with a likable heroine & some well developed characters. I'm a bit peeved because one character is STILL hiding & I think I know who it is. It's beginning to be more a point of wonderment & becoming ridiculous. Minor point though. The rest of the universe is well painted, the situation is believable & tense. It's an easy read, but not a dumb one. Better than just a candy book.


    6. 1) I'm doing a reread of the series, shouldn't I be able to think of 'stuff' to slide into these review boxes after I'm done? Heck, I've been writing reviews for almost everything for at least 1 or 3 years now, even if it's a little as 'I loathe Jonathan' (Don't recall if that's the character's name, but that's the entirety of a review I wrote this year). But alas, not having as much luck doing reviews recently. I keep taking days, weeks to get around to them.2) I'm in the middle of the last boo [...]


    7. I want to give this entire series 5 stars even though I probably won’t give any of its individual instalments that rating. Does that make sense? Vatta’s War is just such a fun and compelling space opera with a strong central character, and Elizabeth Moon is a great storyteller. I say this while simultaneously admitting that, even though I really, really enjoyed reading Engaging the Enemy, I don’t think it’s actually all that good of a book.Yeah, this is going to be one of those reviews. [...]


    8. Longer, more involved and more intricate than the two preceding volumes, Trading in Danger and Marque and Reprisal, in the story of Kylara Vatta and her supporting cast of comrades, villains, and bit players. The military aspects of the story ring more true than in a lot of fiction, no doubt because the author, Elizabeth Moon, served in the Marine Corps. Her academic background in history helps with the grand politics and strategy that form the background and drive the story, too.Excellent chara [...]


    9. Quite good if you're willing to suspend disbelief in the outrageous competence of youth. I like the 3 major characters of Ky, Stella and Grace. I'd like to see more action in the big picture than in just a few isolated encounters/battles. And the action is very uneven; it's mostly talk and almost no action until the end.


    10. After the partial disappointment of the second volume in Elizabeth Moon’s Vatta’s War series, I was eager to see whether that less-than-stellar book was just a fluke, or if the initial promise had really been so sadly reduced: I’m quite happy to share that the third volume in the series, Engaging the Enemy, rolls back on track in a very appealing way. The story resumes straight from the point it had left off in Marque and Reprisal, making me realize that this is not exactly a series, but r [...]


    11. This one's enjoyable despite a relative lack of action, but Stella's parts were annoying. I was not in love with the way her character lost perspective and competence just to give the story a jolt of conflict. That episodic combat scene at the end also felt kind of skim-worthy.The characters still have me hooked though; I'll grab the next one soon.


    12. Originally posted at FanLit. fantasyliterature/“I do not intend survival. I intend victory.”Engaging the Enemy is the third book in Elizabeth Moon’s VATTA’S WAR saga. Young captain Kylara Vatta, her beautiful cousin Stella Vatta, and their elderly Aunt Grace continue their quest for revenge on the people who destroyed the Vatta shipping empire and most of the Vatta family. They are just beginning to realize the extent of the vast conspiracy which brought the Vattas down — it involves s [...]


    13. Vatta's War series 1 Trading in Danger 2 Marque and Reprisal 3 Engaging the Enemy 4 Command Decision 5 Victory ConditionsThese 5 books are not so much a series as one long novel - there's one story arc, and you really need to read all five to get to the (satisfying) conclusion. (I somehow had the misapprehension that there were only 4 in the series - luckily the public library came through and got me #5 expediently!)Due to a misjudgement, Kylara Vatta, scion of an interstellar shipping business, [...]


    14. I still think this series is for YA. This time, the psychological crisis doesn’t have as much to do with losing one’s parents in death as in losing one’s parents in terms of genetics, discovering that one has been adopted and that one’s progenitor is not anyone to be admired in terms of genetic inheritance. In a delightful way, Engaging the Enemy explores the real meaning of family. Of course, I’m more hooked than ever because the personalities of the characters are becoming more compl [...]


    15. Genre: Military Science Fiction/Space OperaThis was an extremely addictive read. It continues the story of Ky Vatta, her cousin Stella, and her aunt Grace in their three-pronged attack on their attackers. It’s still not clear that we know everyone who was working against them. However, Ky focuses on trying to counter the military threat that organized space pirates presents. Stella continues to worry about the family’s business concerns while Grace attempts to address the government collusio [...]


    16. OK, now I'm a little annoyed at myself for starting the series. The books are getting worse as Moon tries to describe space battles without having any clue of the distances involved. The main character at one point worries about ship positioning errors of 1000 meters at a distance of light minutes because otherwise it might be accidentally hit by friendly fire from a beam weapon.Hah.And all the other weaknesses I've noted in reviews of the earlier books of the series are still present. Of course [...]


    17. so much stronger than book 2. the one exception has to be Rafe's existence, and especially his farewell - we seem to have found new ways for him to be really unbelievable and way too convenient for way too many purposes, though at the same time it's hard not to like him and his presence in the story


    18. Kylara Vatta and Stella are still trying to rebuild the corporation. They now have two ships but no cohesion regarding who will be the leader and how to rebuild the company. Kylara realizes that she needs to get a band of armed merchant ships together to take out the pirates. Once she does though she quickly realizes how untrained and unequipped they are. Plus she is forced to work under a poor leader. The secrets revealed in this book was shocking. It made the reader question what constitutes f [...]


    19. I picked up the first two books in the Vatta’s War series out of curiosity, and because I thought they probably weren’t very good. I wanted to see what modern military science fiction was like. They turned out better than I expected, enough so that I’ve been curious about the rest of the series. I began Engaging the Enemy with the hopes that it would be faster and more exciting than the previous two books.Summary Having defeated the family renegade and pirate, Osman, Ky Vatta attempts to [...]


    20. I loved the first two books, but this one was a disappointment. Book two ended with a promise of things to come. This promise was never fulfilled.Most of the book was slow, until the last third--or maybe it was a quarter. The pace really picked up through the climax. But, once again, there were loose ends at the finish. This time I'm not so eager to read the next book, because I'm afraid it will be more of the same.


    21. Rating: Ky is determined, and a bit crazy and fun as heck.“We could just do something stupid again, wait for them to pounce, and then surprise them by suddenly becoming brilliant,” Martin said. That got a chuckle. I love the characters and the tangled familial emotions and ties and obligations. The story is interesting and I enjoy the space battles and tactics.Between Ky and Aunt Grace, the pirates and bad guys better run.


    22. I <3 E. Moon so much. One of my favorite things? Her plot rarely hinges on problems caused by CHARACTERS NOT TALKING TO EACH OTHER. Her characters are smart, and even though they may have interpersonal problems, they talk it out (when possible) instead of doing really stupid things because they didn't communicate. Also, love all the military stuff!


    23. This is a fun series with a no nonsense (well, only a little) female lead set in an interesting universe that fits right in with those created by James S. A. Corey or Peter Hamilton. A good read for escaping today's depressing headlines.


    24. Third book in the Vatta Series. The story carries on from the second book.Commander Vatta is ready to win the fight against the marauding forces of ruthless space pirate Gammis Turek.The adventure continues. Powered thru this book. On to number four.Four stars


    25. ended with some great scenes, but i could have done with out a couple of characters whining in the middle. seemed like filler. overall great progress to the story and the next book should start to get into the nitty gritty of killing some pirates in large numbers. Fried pirate!


    26. Not particularly deep, but a fast paced and enjoyable space opera. Ky Vatta has a choice to make: should she concentrate on re-building the Vatta trading empire knowing that there are pirates targeting the concern or should she go after the pirates. And will cousin Stella be a help or a hindrance?


    27. This one feels like a middle story. Some action, but mostly about set up for the larger conflict. These books do not have a lot of backtrack, so it is best read in sequence. I like the introduction of the difficulties of how to finance the "war". It adds a dimension to warfare that I don't think about. This book also gives you that same sense of the "fog of war" and how communication and misinformation is so critical a role in the efforts. We are still slowly building to a larger conflict. I am [...]
