Series ReviewI barreled through this series Huff is an expert at crafting edge of your seat against all odds showdowns but also manages to underpin her books with a worthy if somewhat limited allegorical perspective This is military sci fi starring Confederation marines and so is infused with military culture with the added sci fi interest of imagining a force that combines humans with two other fascinating alien species into a single fighting force I was not surprised to learn that Huff was in the military herself In a thousand different ways her books reflect that intimate detailed knowledge of attitudes and habits that is very hard to invent wholesale for example there are dozens of inside jokes about the mostly friendly rivalry between the marines and the navy that just felt first hand I also liked that the books respected soldiers and their sacrifices without ever slipping into uncritical glorification of war or the military or vilification of the enemies At its most basic level these are stories about the role and character of the senior NCO embodied here by Staff later Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr who manages to feel like a completely uniue and original heroine at the same time that she practically embodies the Platonic Ideal of a Marine Sergeant The story provides a truly fascinating look at the key role of the NCO in fighting an actual war how they maintain discipline and morale among the enlisted carry out much of the actual fighting and uietly mentor less experienced officers Torin herself sees her role as completing missions while keeping her people alive The book manages the impressive feat of balancing out Torin s save the day heroics with her understated wry perspective that is the polar opposite of an arrogant glory hound I ll just add one comparatively minor aspect of Huff s portrayal that really struck me she provides almost no physical description of her heroine and never says that Torin is or isn t pretty In fact Huff consistently avoids any kind of evaluative commentary on her characters relative attractiveness Some of this is due to the sci fi worldbuilding humans are no longer the only species and so the human obsession with variations in our appearance has faded in the face of living and working with totally alien species But I was impressed and a little unnerved by how refreshing it was to immerse myself in the world of this amazing heroine and have her appearance be consistently treated by author characters and by Torin herself as utterly irrelevant There is a less happy flip side of course I am getting and fed up with the fact that it is so ridiculously unusual to find a book where the heroine is not portrayed as extremely attractive and even rare to fine one where her appearance is never mentioned at all I say this though I am myself guilty of depicting my own heroines as fulfilling conventional standards of female attractiveness Bottom line I loved this series could not put it down and also found it thought provoking and moving in the best tradition of sci fi Highly recommend for any fans of military sci fi or anyone looking for a uniue refreshing and inspiring heroine

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

    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 militaryAfter a uick rereadMy initial impression still stands This was a surprisingly enjoyable read although that will never not be weird to say about military fiction even in genre Another point in this book's favor is it's the beginning of

    I loved this book before I went and started writing books myself There is a crazy thing that happens when you write books though You develop editing brain and you can no longer read without picking up all the little issues that you might change in your own stuff It is a real downer let me tell you I don't enjoy reading as much as I once didA real downer So I went back to this book as I have a few other books

    While reading this I remembered why I don't read much military Sci Fi And that's because I find it boring Yes that's right I find that most military Sci Fi revolves around cardboard cut out characters that take part in wholly forgettable and uninteresting stories This was no exception I only give it 2 stars because it's not bad for the genre But this is a genre that suffers from a lack of talented authors There
