Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months.
I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.
I’m excited to read . . .
The Privilege of Peace by Tanya Huff
Series: Peacekeeper #3
Published by DAW
Publishing date: June 5, 2018
Genre: Science Fiction
Synopsis: Former space marine Torin Kerr returns for one final adventure to save the Confederation in the last book in the military science fiction Peacekeeper trilogy.
Warden Torin Kerr has put her past behind her and built a life away from the war and everything that meant. From the good, from the bad. From the heroics, from the betrayal. She’s created a place and purpose for others like her, a way to use their training for the good of the Confederation. She has friends, family, purpose.
Unfortunately, her past refuses to grant her the same absolution. Big Yellow, the ship form of the plastic aliens responsible for the war, returns. The Silsviss test the strength of the Confederation. Torin has to be Gunnery Sergeant Kerr once again and find a way to keep the peace.
Torin Kerr (the main character) is such a heroic character. I love reading about her. She’s not perfect and she has her own demons as well as finding it hard to fit in after the end of war. Tanya Huff has done a good job of showing the difficulties warriors and the military sometimes have fitting in to a “peace” society–especially one that isn’t as peaceful as it tries to appear.
This series is a continuation of her military science fiction Confederation series with many of the same characters including Torin Kerr. The second book of the this series really worked for me (better than the first Peacekeeper book) so I’m excited to read this book when it comes out.
