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.

Listener Opinions

    " Another good military space opera adventure continuing the exploits of Torin Kerr. Very well-written and thoroughly enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Merlin | 1/30/2014

    " The first book in this series was a solid piece of military sci-fi with just enough characterization to keep it from being dry. This book not so much; the derelict that lies at the heart of the plot feels (after about the 100 page mark) like the worst type of plot device from the worst episode of Star Trek, the type of plot device that stands in the way of answers and will never be explained. As for the characterization or rather the romance in this book every time it is brought up it just stands as a block of text that won't be used on the story. "

    " Second book in the Valor series. Staff Sergeant Torin Kerr is sent with an expeditionary force to explore an unknown alien vessel. Again, a likeable character and a dynamic plot. "
