In this new military sci-fi thriller from the Nebula Award-winning author of Cold Welcome, Admiral Kylara Vatta is back--with a vengeance. Ky beats sabotage, betrayal, and the unforgiving elements to lead a ragtag group of crash survivors to safety on a remote arctic island. And she cheats death after uncovering secrets someone is hell-bent on protecting. But the worst is far from over when Ky discovers the headquarters of a vast conspiracy against her family and the heart of the planet's government itself. With their base of operations breached, the plotters have no choice but to gamble everything on an audacious throw of the dice. Even so, the odds are stacked against Ky. When her official report on the crash and its aftermath goes missing--along with the men and women she rescued--Ky realizes that her mysterious enemies are more powerful and dangerous than she imagined. Now, targeted by faceless assassins, Ky and her family--along with her fiance, Rafe--must battle to reclaim the upper hand and unmask the lethal cabal closing in on them with murderous intent. Praise for Elizabeth Moon's Cold Welcome "A gripping page-turner with enough twists and turns to satisfy even the most hardened sf reader."--Booklist "Like much of Elizabeth Moon's fiction, the characters shine."--SFFWorld "Abounding with a new set of piratical baddies, ramped-up military slang, assorted betrayals, and echoes of Shackleton's incredible cold-weather trek."--Publishers Weekly "An exciting tale of military sf."--Library Journal "Solidy engrossing . . . Moon's great strength is her characters, particularly the soldiers and how they comport themselves when under great stress."--Kirkus Reviews
