The third installment in Tanya Huff's action-packed military sci-fi adventure Confederation series

Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr was a Confederation Marine's marine. She'd survived more deadly encounters--and kept more of her officers and enlisteds alive--than anyone in the Corps, and she was determined to keep the record intact. But since her last mission, she'd been sidelined into endless briefings and debriefings with no end in sight.

So, of course, she'd jumped at the chance to go to the Crucible--the Marine Corps training planet--as temporary aide to Major Svensson. The major had been reduced to little more than a brain and spinal cord in his last combat, and he and his doctor were anxious to field test his newly re-grown body.

It should have been an easy twenty-day run. After all, Crucible was only set up to simulate battle situations so recruits could be trained safely. But they were barely on-planet when someone started blasting the training scenarios to smithereens.

And suddenly Kerr found herself not only responsible for the major and his doctor, but caught in a desperate fight to keep a platoon of Marine recruits alive until someone discovered what was happening on Crucible....

Review:

Praise for the Confederation series:

"The action is solid, and the marines are an entertaining mix of oddballs led by the highly competent and eminently likeable Staff Sergeant Kerr.... A rousing military adventure." --Locus

"An intriguing alien race, a likeable protagonist, a fast moving plot, and a rousing ending. What more could you ask for?" --S.F. Chronicle

"The notable Tanya Huff proves herself equally adept at military science fiction as contemporary fantasy. A writer of great versatility, Ms. Huff captures the ambiance of an elite military group and adds a rare depth to skillful characterization to make each personality stand up and be counted." --RT Reviews

"This book is Rendezvous with Rama for the rest of us: exciting, mysterious and full of action and puzzles to solve. Torin is everything you want in an action heroine." --Kliatt

"Readers who enjoy military SF will love Tanya Huff's Valor's Choice. The level of detail is intricate...the blow-by-blow of combat is delivered with a focus on character as well as with lots of empathy and humor. Howlingly funny and very suspenseful." --Science Fiction Weekly

"Fans of military science fiction will want to read The Better Part of Valor, a thriller that is every bit as exciting as Star Wars. Torin is a great heroine, while the realistic species provide an authentic spin to this vigorous fantastic futuristic tale." --Midwest Book Review

"Sergeant Torin Kerr is a great character - gutsy, capable, and kick-ass. Everything a reader could hope for.... The series maintains its quality and addictiveness...there's a great balance of humour, story, and action." --Civilian Reader

About the Author:

Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic--an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five--Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt--featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular. Tanya can be found via Twitter at @TanyaHuff.
