Tanya Huff

Military Stars / Tobin Kerr

In the field of military science fiction, Tanya Huff's Valor series is, well, grounded.

Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr is a marine who leads from the trenches in the tradition of all that's best, and worst, about the military. She fights battles with her marines and endures hardships and politics alike.

There is something very true about the military life that Huff portarys. Despite moving her marines into space, Huff gives us a taste of the hard life of the men and women on the pointy end of conflict.

Valor's Choice

Staff Sergeant Tobin Kerr was a battle-hardened professional. So when she and those in her platoon who had survived the last deadly encounter with the Others were yanked from a well-deserved leave for what was supposed to be "easy" duty as the honor guard for a diplomatic mission to the non-Confederation world of the Silsviss, she was ready for anything.

Now, Torin must fight her way not only out of the prison, but also past the growing compulsion to lie down and give up-not realizing that her escape could alter the entire course of the war.

The Truth of Valor

Having left the Marine Corps, former Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr is attempting to build a new life with salvage operator Craig Ryder. Turns out, civilian life is a lot rougher than she'd imagined. Torin is left for dead when pirates attack their spaceship and take Craig prisoner. But "left for dead" has never stopped Torin. Determined to rescue Craig, she calls in her Marines. And that's when her mission expands to stopping the pirates from changing the balance of power in known space. (
