Read full description of the books:
Billed as the first in a new series, this is actually a continuation of Huff's Confederation series, building directly on the events of the previous book. As such, it may not mean as much to people who have not read the earlier books. That said, this is solid military SF, without the jingoistic undertones of so much of the subgenre.
Ex-Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr and her lover Craig Ryder, along with the remnants of her last unit, have moved on from salvage operations to contract work for the Justice department. They accept an assignment from the military to stop another interstellar war by preventing grave-robbers from disseminating ancient weapons from the H'san's abandoned homeworld. First they have to find said homeworld, then fight their way in--and fight their way out. Hey, no one said it would be easy--if it were, they would have sent someone else.
Recommended--But it's probably best to start at the beginning of the Confederation series. Fortunately, that's no hardship.

Read information about the author"Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia: Although I haven't actually lived "down east" since just before my fourth birthday, I still consider myself a Maritimer. I think it's something to do with being born in sight of the ocean. Or possibly with the fact that almost no one admits to being from Ontario…
Raised, for the most part, in Kingston, Ontario. It was the late sixties, early to mid seventies. Enough said for those of us who lived through it-and those who didn't seem to be getting another chance to fall off platform shoes.
Spent three years in the Canadian Naval Reserve: I was a cook. They'd just opened it up to women and I figured it would be the first trade that would send women to sea. I was right. Unfortunately it happened a year after I left. No tattoos.
Received a degree in RADIO AND TELEVISION ARTS (B.A.A.) from Ryerson Polytechnical Institute: The year I graduated was the year that the CBC laid off 750 employees in Toronto alone. We were competing for jobs with people who had up to five years experience. The cat threw up on my degree.
Spent eight years working at Bakka, North America's oldest surviving science fiction book store: Change Of Hobbit in California was actually a very little bit older but unfortunately it was a casualty of the recession in '91. During those eight years, while working full-time, I wrote seven books (the first seven, except for the original draft of CHILD), and nine short stories.
In 1992, after living in downtown Toronto, a city of nearly three million, for thirteen years, I moved with two large cats, one small psychotic cat, and my partner out to a rented house in the middle of nowhere. In the years since, we've purchased the house, buried two of the original cats, replaced them with three more felines and, unintentionally, acquired a Chihuahua. You're probably wondering how two reasonably intelligent adults can unintentionally acquire a Chihuahua. Please don't ask.
I love living in the country, writing full-time, anything by Charles de Lint, Xena, Hercules, and email. I dislike telephones, electric blankets, and bathroom renovations.
I always expect catastrophe; as a result, I'm usually pleasantly surprised."
Huff lives with her wife, Fiona Patton.
