I fell hard for Gunny Sergeant Torin Kerr in Valor’s Choice, the first book in Tanya Huff’s space opera series. Action packed, unique and unpredictable with one kick ass character is what caught my attention. I then devoured the next three books in the series: The Better Part of Valor, The Heart of Valor, and Valor’s Trial.
Somewhere I had read that she had planned it as a four-parter and there’d be no more. I figured that was it’s strength, but I missed it. So when I heard a 5th came out, The Truth of Valor, I was thrilled.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Huff threw us into this new aspect of Kerr’s life, as she tries to adjust to life as a former Marine. Kerr kicks ass as much as ever and I hope this means the series will continue. I will certainly keep reading.
Although this novel did not surprise me as much as the previous books in The Confederation Novels, there was still a lot of action. I felt a few of the ideas could have been flushed out a bit more, but it’s still an above average read.
If you haven’t discovered the Confederation Novels yet, I envy you reading them for the first time. They rock.
What about you? Is there a science fiction series you love? Which one has first place in your heart?
