Valor s Choice is the first of the Confederation series and my first book by Tanya Huff It s an excellent military space opera set in the very distance future I enjoyed it from page one but when action picked up halfway through I simply couldn t stop reading It revolves around a great protagonist Torin Kerr a marine female Staff Sergeant Hardened military veteran Kerr has been put in charge of a platoon of marines to serve as honor guard to a group of diplomats on a mission to get a new alien species the lizard like and warlike Silsviss to join the Confederation before the Others can recruit them This supposedly easy assignment naturally goes horribly wrongI thought Torin was outstanding as female but specially as a NCO In that Valor s Choice differs from the expected type of lead roles associated with military fiction OK it s a futuristic space opera and lately leading female characters have become all the rage while we are used to stories with captains leading the plot Torin Kerr is just a Staff Sergeant in that it changes dramatically the perspective of the storyThe book could be dry and unappealing there is no romance and only some references to sex We don t get to know what Torin looks like and how old she is just that she is strong But the plot and the narrative could not be engaging and as I read along I could feel the restlessness of the marines while diplomatic discussions are under way After the halfway mark it changes into rapid fire as the action picks up So we get the frenzy of combat The 40 plus military along with the civilians end in a preserve facing some 3000 hormonal and feral Silsviss adolescents Battle based in the Zulu War of the late 1870s As the reader you can live through the combat together with this group and suffer with each comrade that fallsTorin Kerr is revealed to us as the plot develops and we get to understand how she sees herself in each situation She is strong and believable to the last maneuver and dialogue She s not interested in glory only worries about getting out with the less possible casualties at the same time as she mentors a green lieutenant into combat and command with tact and without any hidden agendasThe supporting characters are many a rich mosaic of people that through their roles only enrich the plot As it develops we start to discern who is who in this group where the army marines and air forces are made up of three species fighting together plus two pacifists aliens that make up the diplomats From a diverse bunch of different species and disparate backgrounds as the fight goes on

author for me one I ve been meaning to read for years now just never had the chance She s favorite among my circle of friends and now that I ve read one of her books I can see whyHer prose is exacting to the point and she doesn t waste space summing up things for you nor does she dwell too long on sentimentality She strikes a balance between the physicality of war and the emotional toll it takes on troops on the ground and between the personal and the political I think it s just right for this kind of story where the balance of deftness and a delicate hand is reuiredThat aside the tone is actually neither heavy handed or maudlin as one might expect from military fiction There s a lot of humor bantering and camaraderie even in the face of peril And all of it feels authentic As a matter

off by dropping you into the beginning of a new missionThe marines of Sh uo Company have recently returned from a mission in which they suffered a great deal and lost a number of their own They re

company is to escort a group of ambassadors to a new planet Silsvah that the Confederation hegemony is looking to bring into its circleAlong with the order the company also receives a new commanding

an order and they might as well see the new planet and meet its apex predators the Silsviss while they re at itThe catch is of course there s a catch the new planet is inhabited by a less advanced rather primitive race of warmongering lizard people who are undecided about the Confederation and aren t easily impressed by its fancy techs These people reuire a show of might before they agree to anything the Confederation has plannedWhat initially starts as an assignment to babysit a bunch of diplomats for a few weeks on a foreign planet turns into a siege and a series of skirmishes in the middle of a desert swamp in which the company is outnumbered by hundreds of Silsviss It s a grueling fight but in the end tech wins out even at the expense of the people using itWe find it strange the ambassador murmured almost to herself how a species can be able to make such a sacrifice one moment and can kill another sentient being the next This mix of caring and violence is most confusing it must be a factor of bisymmetrical speciesIt was by no means a truism that insight into a species could be gained by wholesale slaughter but Torin was willing to bet that right at this particular point in time no one in the Confederation knew the Silsviss as well as she didIn the midst of all this is Staff Sargent Torin Kerr the backbone of the company main POV character and someone who grew on me
