Meet 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.

harstan More than 1 year ago
In the distant future, Earth has joined the Confederation in return for becoming a fighting arm of the empire along with other sentient species. Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr is proud to be a marine fighting the Others, a race that covets confederation territory while refusing to negotiate with the delegates of the Confederation. In a life or death battle with the Others, she has come to the attention of General Morris.

The General assigns her a top-secret mission to investigate a spaceship that is neither Confederation nor Other in a far corner of the galaxy. When Kerr boards the alien ship, she learns the hard way that it is sentient and doesn¿t like anyone shooting it. Trapped on board the ship with a group of the Others, Torin must find a way to escape or die trying.

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. Tanya Huff¿s latest work is so action packed and colorful it would make a great movie. Torin is a great heroine while the realistic species provide an authentic spin to this vigorous fantastic futuristic tale.
