In recent years I read and enjoyed the seven books of Elizabeth Moon’s ‘Serrano Legacy’ and intended, at some point, to read her five part ‘Vatta’s War’ series. When ‘Cold Welcome’ was announced, the first in the follow-on series ‘Vatta’s Peace’ I thought I’d best get a move on and read ‘Vatta’s War’, but then […]
