We’re delighted to report that Tanya Huff‘s first two Confederation novels are out today in the UK! VALOUR’S CHOICE and THE BETTER PART OF VALOUR are published in the UK by Titan Books, who will also be releasing a number of other novels by Tanya over the next couple of months. (THE SILVERED was published in early November.)
Here is the synopsis for VALOUR’S CHOICE…
In the distant future, humans and several alien races have been granted membership in the Confederation—at a price. They must serve and protect the far more civilized species who have long since turned away from war. When her transport ship is shot down, a routine diplomatic mission across the galaxy becomes anything but, and Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr must fight to keep her platoon alive.
Here’s what just a few critics have said about the two novels…
‘The notable Tanya Huff proves herself equally adept at military as as contemporary fantasy in her riveting VALOR’S CHOICE … 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. Don’t miss this one.’ — RT Book Reviews
‘An intriguing alien race, a likeable protagonist, a fast moving plot, and a rousing ending. What more could you ask for?’ — Science Fiction Chronicle (on VALOUR’s CHOICE)
‘This sequel to VALOR’S CHOICE, featuring a gutsy, fast-thinking female space-marine protagonist, establishes veteran fantasy author Huff as an accomplished spinner of high-tech military-sf adventure. For most sf collections.’ — Library Journal
‘Huff’s characerization and knowledge of military subculture bring the book to a suspense-filled and rousing finale once again allowing Torin Kerr to shine in her role as the touch, resourceful and supremely competent leader.’ — Locus
