Valour's Choice: A Confederation Novel by Tanya Huff
4.0 out of 5 stars Valour's Choice, 2 Mar 2014
I enjoyed Valour’s Choice from the get-go. The Prologue introduces the world quickly and painlessly then we’re straight away introduced to Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr. I loved Kerr; she’s tough, funny, devoted to her people, and not immune to the charms of the di’Kayan. The story proper begins with the morning after the night before. Kerr’s indulged in some post-battle R&R with a nameless di’Kayan, the most sexually adventurous known race and almost irresistible to humans. Certainly Kerr had no intention of resisting this particular one last night, but now duty calls.

I liked Percy's character very much, as she blossoms into her position of… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars The Secret Eater, 15 July 2013
The Secret Eater is a fun novella that introduces a lot of interesting characters.

Kenssie is a demon. She feeds off the secrets of others. As demons go she's not one of the most important, but even so her powers seem to be especially weak right now. She certainly ought to be capable of hiding herself from a lowly Level One witch. But this one has spotted her, and is able to negate her powers. Something is very wrong; a trip to the Council is Kenssie's first resort.

Rakmanon, Kenssie's master, doesn't hold out much hope of success. The Council aren't in the habit of doing anyone any favours. But, Kenssie might just have found an unlikely ally in Permilia, the Council… Read more
