9780756409586: An Ancient Peace

Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr had been the very model of a Confederation Marine. But when she learned the truth about the war the Confederation was fighting, she left the military for good.

But Torin couldn’t walk away from preserving and protecting everything the Confederation represented. Instead, she drew together an elite corps of friends and allies to take on covert missions that the Justice Department and the Corps could not—or would not—officially touch. Torin just hoped the one they were about to embark on wouldn’t be the death of them.

Ancient H’san grave goods are showing up on the black market—grave goods from just before the formation of the Confederation, when the H’san gave up war and buried their planet-destroying weapons...as grave goods for the death of war. Someone is searching for these weapons and they’re very close to finding them. As the Elder Races have turned away from war, those searchers can only be members of the Younger Races.

Fortunately, only the Corps Intelligence Service has this information. Unfortunately, they can do nothing about it—bound by laws of full disclosure, their every move is monitored.

Though Torin Kerr and her team are no longer a part of the military, the six of them tackling the H’san defenses and the lethally armed grave robbers are the only chance the Confederation has. The only chance to avoid millions more dead.

But the more Torin learns about the relationship between the Elder Races and the Younger, the more she begins to fear war might be an unavoidable result.

Recensione:

Praise for An Ancient Peace:

“Huff's ability to communicate complex personal dynamics and deep trust through what feels like casual banter establishes the character of the team well.... Her detailed exposition and tense interactions support the elaborate world-building that establishes the setting for the new series.” — Publishers Weekly

“Huff works in plenty of backstory for new readers…. Once the action hits the planet running, Huff kicks it into high gear.” — RT Reviews

“Torin and her team feel like The A-Team crossed with Mission Impossible.... as long as Tanya Huff decides to keep writing about Torin, I will be ecstatically reading her adventures.” —Fantasy Book Review

“The story is told incredibly well and the pace is frenetic once the mission gets underway.... I definitely recommend An Ancient Peace for fans of military sci-fi.” —SFRevu

An Ancient Peace is certainly the adrenaline-fueled adventure that I have come to know, love and expect from this series.” —Reading Reality

An Ancient Peace is all about robust dialogue, well defined characters and a rock solid plot that drives the story onward.... This is intelligent, well written, character driven science fiction falling into that sweet spot between hard sci-fi and pulp action.” —The Book Beard’s Blog

“Huff is very good with characters and dialogue…she can still turn a line that will make me laugh out loud.” —Clandestine Critic

L'autore:

Tanya Huff may have left Nova Scotia at three, and has lived most of her life since in Ontario, but she still considers herself a Maritimer. On the way to the idyllic rural existence she shares with her partner Fiona Patton, six cats, and a chihuahua, she acquired a degree in Radio and Television Arts from Ryerson Polytechnic—an education she was happy to finally use while writing her recent Smoke novels. Of her previous twenty-three books, the five—Blood Price, Blood Trail, Blood Lines, Blood Pact, Blood Debt—featuring Henry Fitzroy, bastard son of Henry VIII, romance writer, and vampire are among the most popular. Tanya can be found via Twitter at @TanyaHuff.
