Victory Conditions

Victory Conditions (Vatta's War, #5)Victory Conditions by Elizabeth Moon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The fifth and last book in the series, this one wraps up all the storylines neatly. Everything ended, in my mind, in a satisfactory manner – meaning that not every woman in the book wound up with A MAN at the end who was going to carry them off to a spaceship/castle and yadda yadda yadda. The most beautiful woman, in fact, winds up strong and in control of herself, with no need of a relationship. I enjoy twists like that. Someone we thought to be a doormat turns out to have hidden strengths; someone described as old (a grandmother, even) winds up with a surprising relationship; and there are some fabulously well-plotted out space battles. I would say that everyone, even side characters mentioned in the first book but not seen “on camera” until the end, gets what they deserve.

I would not be surprised if I wind up re-reading this series a few years down the road.
