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.

    Fans of the series will appreciate Tanya Huff's talent

    The war between the Confederacy and the Others has been going on for a long time. Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr was proud of serving as a Confederacy marine because she believed in the cause. She eventually learns that both fighting forces were part of a scientific experiment by sentient plastic beings, who hide in plain sight amidst the abundance of plastic products. These insidious beings are exposed, but Torin leaves the marines anyway to become a salvage operator with her lover Craig Ryder.

    The end of the war left a power vacuum especially in the outer reaches of space. Pirates filled the void; stealing and pillaging ships, Cho captured an armory that is code locked by the CSO officer and when he kidnapped someone who could open it, he used too much force on the person who died from the torture. Now Cho abducts Ryder; Torin vows to find and rescue him. Ryder knows what his beloved will do so will not abet Cho with the armor he wants to deploy. He waits for her to come and get him.

    Having left the Confederation military, The Truth of Valor is Torin's first civilian adventure and though no longer a powerful military science fiction, the heroine's enthusiasm and diligence remains as strong as ever in this veteran outer space thriller. The spin from marine to vet refreshes the Valor Confederation series as Torin and Ryder begin a new phase in their lives together. Fans of the series will appreciate Tanya Huff's talent as she uses the frightening premise of a rogue killer obtaining a nuke as the underlying premise of her heroine's rescue attempt of her beloved while a psychopath pirate possesses weapons of mass destruction.

    Why $12?

    What's with the price escalation? There are plenty of other sources for epub books like Webscription, where I never pay more than $6. I would even pay par with paperback, but I will wait indefinitely before paying hardcover price for a document in electronic format that 10 years from now might not even be readable.

    A Good Read

    The series continues with the mixture of species made familiar in previous novels. As usual, something BAD happens and only the Gunnery Sargeant can fix it. The pacing is good while we await the inevitable conclusion that nothing can beat the best the Marines have to offer.
