The Better Part of Valor

Tanya Huff

Telling a two-star general what she really thought of him was the mistake Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr made with General Morris. But as a battle-hardened professional, she took pride in doing her job and getting her troops back alive. So after she'd saved the mission to bring the Silsviss into the Confederation-instead of losing them and their world to the enemy known only as the Others-she let the general know exactly how she felt. And Torin's reward-or punishment-was to be separated from her platoon and sent off on what might well prove an even more perilous assignment. She was commandeered to protect a scientific expedition to a newly discovered and seemingly derelict spaceship of truly epic proportions. And Confederation politics had saddled her with a commanding officer who might prove more of a menace to the mission's success than anything they encountered. Only time would tell if the ship was what it appeared to be or a trap created by the Others-or the work of an as yet unknown alien race with an agenda that could prove all too hostile to other life-forms.
