Initial impression upon first finishing the book A rollicking good read and I enjoyed it a lot than I thought I would considering this is military sci fi that s light on the sci fi and heavy on the

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 of fact this whole book feels authentic if you don t count the space ships and lizard peopleEvery military organization needed heroes tragic heroes if they were the only type availableThe book kicks 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 currently on temporary leave at the start of the book However that doesn t last long as they get called to another mission Not to another battlefield this time but to a meeting of diplomats The 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 officer Second Lieutenant Jarrat to replace their recently deceased lieutenant The new guy is good with diplomacy but has zero field experience He s basically custom fit for this job whereas the company being a group of rowdy marines with the exception of their sargents are notWeird to call in battle weary troops to be diplomatic escorts yeah That s what they thought as well But an order is 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 She s got the weight of the whole universe on her and I couldn t help but feel for her and the burden she lugs around She s got a platoon to keep in line a young officer to back up who looks to her

I wasn t sure what I was getting but I would call this a militaryspace opera that hit all the right notes for those of you who are into this genreHuff knows her stuff the extent of my poetic gift She knows how the military should sound and how jarheads and grunts talk to each other and complain about their current situation whatever that is This is a story about combat troops repurposed for a critical event that should result in a new species being added to their allies It is necessary because the aggressive Others are about to come calling in this particular uadrant of the galaxy We follow their day to day experiences through the persona of Staff Sergeant Torin She is saddled with a task she dislikes and a new lieutenant who has no combat experience Part of a staff sergeant s role is to support the lieutenant and make sure that the privates and corporals don t spend too much time complaining about his orders or manners How do you think it went How did I do They weren t the words he d used but it was the uestion he d asked She hid a smile Her baby wasn t uite ready to leave the nest It went well sir You didn t waste time talking at them and at no point did you talk down to them The punishments were fair hard enough so they ll think twice about going out the lock again not so hard they ll say fuk you and go just to show you they can We came up with punishments together Yes sir But you could have overruled me Relief made him smile Really Torin lifted a brow and said in the dry tone her second lieutenant expected Not easily sir Thank you Staff Sergeant You d better go see the doctor about your leg Yes sir Staff Sir She turned sucking air through her teeth as the movement pulled the damaged muscle Did we win She paused waiting until she was certain she wouldn t be overheard We kicked lizard butt sir Good work Staff Thank you sir AndHe swayed as he stepped forward and without thinking Torin reached out and slipped an arm around his waist holding him until he steadied When she released him he stared at her for a heartbeat eyes dark and she wondered if she d overstepped the line It was one thing to keep him from making stupid mistakes in fact that was essentially her job description concerning second lieutenants and another thing entirely to imply he couldn t stand on his own two feet Young males of any species tended to be overly proud and young male officersThere are a number of species in this group of marines Most have arms and legs but some are like spiders and the indigenous species resemble lizards Everything about this show the flag exercise goes south very uickly but Torin doesn t know it when she trades her fatigues for a dress uniform And aren t you just the picture of martial elegance Aren t I just she agreed handing him her belt I can t remember the last time I got this tarted up When you made Staff No that was a field promotion I was covered in Staff Sergeant Guntah s guts and the only thing black on me was my fingernails where frostbite had started to set in I remember Anne Chou looked up from her slate Planet was barely habitable we d have ignored it if the Others hadn t tried to set up a mining base So now we have a mining base there and someday we ll have to go back to the frozen hole in the ass end of space to protect it Huff acknowledges that this novel is military than sci fi By that we both mean that the plot is timeless and its basic elements could be inserted in a situation happening yesterday or several hundred years ago Having said that Huff does an excellent job of creating various alien species and individuals within each species If there isn t a great deal of character development for each of them at least they are consistent and well integrated into the plot My thanks to Mimi for getting me interestedAdditional uotes to give you of Valor s flavorThe three of them stared down at the final list of thirty nine names You think the captain ll rubber stamp this Amanda asked He d better Something I ve always wonderedwhat s a rubber stamp andShe d been planning on scheduling his sergeant s exam the day General Morris had given them their new orders With Sergeant Trey dead he d have probably gotten a field promotion Except that he was dead too

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 it transforms itself into a de facto unit Valor s Choice was a great read If you enjoy military Sci Fi I highly recommend it
