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.

This is a FANTASTIC series - exciting, funny, clever, occasionally moving and the narrator for the audiobooks does a great job. I usually don't like military sci-fi, but Tanya Huff knows how to make just about anything interesting. She focuses on characters instead of how cool their guns are. The characters actually grow and change in meaningful and believable ways. Also the series has an interesting overarching story that brings in new characters and revists old ones, but each book is also nicely contained - no cliffhangers.

VPL didn't have the first book as an audiobook when I started listening in June 2016, which I think limits the interest in them - I didn't have to put any on hold. It's worth using an audible credit or just reading the first one and then listening to the ones VPL has.
