Publisher's Summary

In the distant future, humans and several other races have been granted membership in the Confederation - at a price. They must act as soldier/protectors of the far more civilized races who have long since turned away from war.

    Story
    "Delightful listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Valor's Choice to be better than the print version?

    did not read the printed version


    What did you like best about this story?

    The ability of the author to provide introductions to different species yet not get bogged down in the minutia. Since I listen to books at my job I do not enjoy those books that get down into the weeds and one has to pay attention to the detail. This book provided the right amount of entertainment and story line to be both enjoyable and leave one wanting more. Turin is a believable Staff Sargent and the utilization of "old Terran" sayings were on the mark and quite funny!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Several scenes but the final meeting with the general was really on the spot!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed quite a bit ... much to my fellow workers dismay!


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to 'listening' to more from Tanya Huff

    "My intro"

    This was my introduction to Tanya Huff. I found her right after I finished The Paradox Trilogy by Rachel Bach (Rachel Aaron) and was not disappointed!

    "Good book, ok narration"

    The narrator was not very good at distinguishing between characters with the voices. So it was difficult to follow group conversations.

    Story
    "Story okay but ploting uneven"

    It took far to long to get the meat of the story. At first the book read like a slice of life story and all the while I kept thinking to myself when is the story going to start. And then my wandering mind soon picked up on what this was all about even before the story got started. If you take to long to get the point, someone else will get there first. And what was revealed at stories end, was what I had figured out all along.

    Still, I liked the action that starts about half way in. And it was an unusual enough setting and situation to keep my interest throughout. I did not realize I lucked into reading the first book in the series. And while there was enough there to make me interested to see what happens in Book 2, Book 1 I was just okay.

    "Darn, Darn,Darn!!"

    Here's another series of novels I cannot live without reading. (At great risk to my employment I might add!!)

    Thank you Tanya.

    Story
    "very fun story"
    Would you listen to Valor's Choice again? Why?

    I would not listen again but to read. I always feel a missed a little something or misunderstood.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I am a huge fan of a strong female lead. The author seems to know a great deal about the military. The stories was fun to listen to as a US Army Vet.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Anytime she was thinking what was really on her mind but not saying. I know I have gone through this


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sir, my mother and farther were married.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful read or listen to. I laughed, smiled knowingly, and enjoyed the characters. I will get the next in this series.

    Story
    "Not a bad Sci Fi book."

    This military sf story was funny at times and dramatic at others. At times you wanted time to speed up and at others to slow down, but that is true of most things in life.

    I developed a great love for the main character and was sad for all the trials she was put throw. But that made for a very good listen.

    I can not wait to get the second in the series.

    "Loved this series!!"

    I read this series as fast as I could. I liked the action and humor. I also liked the fact there wasn't too much detail in tactics and technology. As some one who has never served or is techno stupid it is easy to understand. Ready for the next in line.

    Story
    "A futuristic, female, Horatio Hornblower (Army)"
    What other book might you compare Valor's Choice to and why?

    It has the action and sense of realism that is satisfied by the Horatio Hornblower series, and while Horatio is in the past this book is in the future.


    Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

    Our heroine is the clear favorite, but I tried not to get attached to any of her company, which was easier due to the similarity of many names. I like the different alien species too and the contrast/conflict between older, more civilized aliens and the younger species, like humans.
