Into the Fire (#2)

Previous: Cold Welcome

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 fiancé, Rafe—must battle to reclaim the upper hand and unmask the lethal cabal closing in on them with murderous intent.


“Moon’s powerful female characters send the unmistakable message that whatever men try to do, these women can do much, much better.”

Publishers Weekly

“Moon satisfies again with the second book in the Vatta’s Peace series, INTO THE FIRE.”

RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

“The strongest characters in this sequel to COLD WELCOME are, refreshingly, the women, especially the matriarchal Vatta family members who act decisively in the most dangers situations. Verdict: Longtime fans of Moon’s Vatta’s War series will delight at the return of familiar characters and in seeing how threads are woven in from previous books.”

Library Journal

“Once you pick it up you won’t want to put it down, but readers of Vatta’s War and other Elizabeth Moon titles hardly need to be told that.”


“It’s quite an adventure, with an impressive big final battle…”
