Genre: Science Fiction / Subgenre: Space Opera
The Confederation Series is penned by Tanya Huff, better known for her Blood Books, featuring detective Victoria Nelson.
What I loved about the Confederation books is Torin Kerr is an unsung hero in some respects. She's put into these horrible situations and has to figure out how to get her troops and herself out of them. The plots are creative, original and kept me on my toes. I could not stop reading these books. It's the first series that pops into my mind whenever anyone asks about my favorite. Torin Kerr is a great, strong character and the action is fabulous.
My favorite stories are those where the main character overcomes terrible odds. They're the kind of stories I enjoy reading and writing most.
So check these out:
The Better Part of Valor
The Heart of Valor
There's a compendium of the first four novels in one book. And, I see there's a new one out, Truth of Valor. I'm off to get it.
