A vast and hostile force is attacking prosperous trade centres, destroying their space fleets then moving on, leaving death and chaos in their wake. Admiral Ky Vatta's family was decimated by one such attack and Turek, the pirate force's leader, will not escape her vengeance. Ky has a loyal taskforce, but the enemy have three times the ships and the firepower to match. She must offset these advantages with her knowledge of military strategy and her ace: superior ansible technology, facilitating fast and accurate in-space intelligence. The alternative to victory is unthinkable - devastation of interplanetary trading networks on a galaxy-wide scale - and the end of a way of life.

I must be getting old. Every once in a while I buy a compilation of a series I have already read. They all have one thing in common. They all are better books than the separate books that invariably include sections to explain what was in previous books.
I understand that authors are still paid by the word and that this process increases the word count significantly, without taxing the creative process. Unfortunately, it doesn't improve the sequels.
Publishers Weekly, 2007-12-17 Rip-roaring action and intriguing science and tactics distinguish Nebula-winner Moon's fifth and final Vatta's War installment. Now combat-blooded and well on her way to the admiralty, young Kylara Vatta commands 40 far-future spacecraft against ferocious Gammis Turek, a criminal mastermind who has threatened Ky's home world of Slotter Key, her relatives and the far-flung Vatta economic empire. Ky has the rank she always hoped she'd achieve and now must accept the fearful responsibilities it entails. Weighed down by thoughts of the deaths she has caused-both friend and foe-and the need to protect the people in her command, Ky finds herself making some dangerous decisions. She's surrounded by a convincing supporting cast, from feisty fruitcake-baking Aunt Grace, who runs Slotter Key's defenses, to dashing Rafe Dunbarger, acting CEO of InterStellar Communications, who has lost his heart to Ky despite his best efforts at stoicism. This epic volume is a fine and fitting conclusion to Moon's grand space opera tour de force. (Feb.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
