Continuing stories of the main characters.
Expands on the world of Slotter Key.
Expands somewhat on the backgrounds of some interesting characters.
Things I didn’t like:
Pretty much Zero character development beyond anything already known about them and none for the villains.
Very repetitive passages in which characters repeatedly explain earlier events to some new, and usually temporary character.
Main characters who repeatedly put off contacting other main characters about critical events because of time of day or other unimportant nonsense.
Characters who repeatedly act outside the tone of the storyline.
by Elizabeth Moon
Into the Fire is another step in Elizabeth Moon’s plot to leave us in suspense. This novel is the next in the installment of Vatta’s Peace. Sera Ky Vatta, has survived the plots and ploys of her enemies, crash landings, and murder attempts to find herself sequestered in the Vatta compound because of legal obstacles. A new law has caused a problem of phenomenal legal conflux. The people who are plotting against the Vatta family and attempting to hide their secrets of Slotter Key’s Miksland island have done many things to put obstacles in the way of their freedom. The mounting scope of the legal problems, and direct assaults on the family seem insurmountable, added to the mix is a plot to hide all the transgressions that happened on Miksland. Sera Rector Grace Vatta, has been poisoned, and her secret file released. Ky Vatta has been sequestered in the family compound that has been assaulted, and attacked more than once, she faces deportation and loss of her citizenship. Raf, and Teague have been labeled criminals for expired visas. Those troops that survived the crash and isolation on Miksland have been kidnapped, drugged and labeled exposed to toxic exposure and illness. Sera Stella Vatta, has been assaulted, her citizenship questioned, and has many legal problems that the Vatta family is not prepared for. The solution of these problems is the building suspense of the book, causing the reader to be addicted to resolution of the plot.
E.M. would credit a baker's dozen of people for the finalization of this book, and I admire that, but not just anyone could unite their efforts in such a fantastic way, or inspire them for starters.
The space commander is pulled down planetside, and faces new challenges on the ground. Politics and affections create instabilities, and only the unity of honest, hard-working individuals can save her life - and "everyone" else's - as Elizabeth Moon once again shows how trusting the right people and working hard along with them could ideally save the day.
