Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Valor's Choice:
“An intriguing alien race, a likeable protagonist, a fast moving plot, and a rousing ending. What more could you ask for?” —Science Fiction Chronicle“The action is solid, and the marines are an entertaining mix of oddballs.”—Locus “Balanced against the high body count is Huff’s dialogue, which is snappy and humorous, enmeshed in the racial diversity of the platoon. As a heroine, Kerr shines. She is cut from the same mold as Ellen Ripley of the Aliens films: tough but humane, fiercely protective of her charges, and utterly determined to prevail… Like her heroine, Huff delivers the goods. Valor’s Choice does not make light of war, but at the same time it is incredibly fun to read. Howlingly funny and very suspenseful. I enjoyed every word.” —Science Fiction Weekly “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 Reviews  
Praise for The Better Part of Valor:“Once again, Tanya Huff produces another enjoyable book, proving that her talents, normally reserved for fantasy, lend themselves quite well to science fiction. With the Valor series, she’s clearly hitting her stride.” —RT Reviews
“Exciting, mysterious and full of action and puzzles to solve. Torin is everything you want in an action heroine…and this book will leave readers anxious for her next adventure.” —Kliatt

“Huff’s flair for battle scenes and her clarity in visual descriptions support the action quite well.” —Science Fiction Chronicle
“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.” —Midwest Book Review
