Elizabeth Moon I hate you (just kidding)

Elizabeth Moon, one of my favorite writers of adult books, has done it again. She's written another book that kept me up late last night -- reading, that kept me from doing anything useful this weekend -- but to read her book.

Her latest book, Command Decision, continues the saga of the Vatta family. It follows Stella, the once airhead who becomes CEO of the company, and Ky Vatta, who was kicked out of space academy several books ago and is now commanding a fleet of space privateers. With side trips to chapters about Rafe and his adventures rescuing his family from kidnappers.

Talk about exciting! Making the reader want to know what happens next. And when she throws a clash between the space pirates, a mercenary group, her own fleet, and then adds in the ISC fleet who charge in thinking KY is the enemy and the pirates are the victims, well.... No time for sleep this weekend.

I'm going to try to post blog messages at least once a week from now on. And I'll be aiming for the beginning of the week -- Sunday or Monday. Crossing fingers and toes that I'll be able to do it.

(and now back to studying Flicker -- the next assignment in my 23 things class.)
