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.

"This sequel to Valor's Choice, featuring a gutsy, fast-thinking female space-marine protagonist, establishes veteran fantasy author Huff as an accomplished spinner of high-tech military-sf adventure." (Library Journal)
"Torin is everything you want in an action heroine (or hero, for that matter), and this book will leave [audiences] anxious for her next adventure." (KLIATT)
I really enjoyed this series, enough that even though I had read the books in print, I picked up the audible versions for a different take.
I really love this series!! Great action, well developed characters and humor amid the war.
10 hours of sarcasm wears thin after the first hour. By the time I finished the book, I decided to give up on the Marines of Tanya Huff.
I can't remember this deluge of diatribe when I was in the service 40 years ago. But sarcasm which seems to be 90% of what I hear when I listen to this book, is just not funny or worth listening to.
