A Peace Divided (Peacekeeper, #2) by Tanya Huff

Into the Wild

Read A Peace Divided (Peacekeeper, #2) Online Free - The second book in the action-packed Peacekeeper series, a continuation of Tanya Huff's military sci-fi Confederation series following Torin Kerr

Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr had been the very model of a Confederation Marine. No one who'd ever served with her could imagine any circumstance that would see her walking away from the Corps.

But that was before Torin learned the truth about the war the Confederation was fighting...before she'd been declared dead and had spent time in a prison that shouldn't exist...before she'd learned about the "plastic" beings who were really behind the war between the Confederation and the Others. That was when Torin left the military for good.

Yet she couldn't walk away from preserving and protecting everything the Confederation represented. Instead, ex-Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr drew together an elite corps of friends and allies--some ex-Marines, some civilians with unique skills--and together they prepared to take on covert missions that the Justice Department and the Corps could not--or would not--officially touch. But after their first major mission, it became obvious that covert operations were not going to be enough.

Although the war is over, the fight goes on and the Justice Department finds its regular Wardens unable to deal with violence and the people trained to use it. Ex-Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr has a solution: Strike Teams made up of ex-military personnel, small enough to maneuver quickly, able to work together if necessary. Justice has no choice but to implement her idea and Torin puts her team of independent contractors back into uniform. It isn't war, it is policing, but it often looks much the same.

When the scientists doing a preliminary archaeological dig on a Class Two planet are taken hostage, Torin's team is sent to free them. The problem of innocents in the line of fire is further complicated by the fact that the mercenaries holding them are a mix of Confederation and Primacy forces, and are looking for a weapon able to destroy the plastic aliens who'd started and maintained the war.

If Torin weren't already torn by wanting that weapon in play, she also has to contend with the politics of peace that have added members of the Primacy--former enemies--to her team. Before they confront the mercenaries, Torin will have to sift through shifting loyalties as she discovers that the line between"us" and "them" is anything but straight.

Second in the follow-on series, Peacekeeper (seventh overall in Confederation) and revolving around Marine ex-Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr. My Take This is not my favorite in the series, as Huff was so incredibly confusing on so many pages. That and the whole hostage thing was stupid. Okay, not taki...

Here is a simple review. I liked this story more than the previous, but there were so many different alien species that I had trouble keeping track. I will keep reading stories about Torin Kerr.

Torin Kerr just keeps on keeping on. I love reading about her and her interestingly subversive group of sidekicks, her moments of angst, her care for duty, and her people (her constant touching of her jacket where she kept the remains of those who served) and of course her partner and person extr...

I like this universe and these characters, and I was glad to spend more time with them, but I found this story pretty unsatisfying. The plot makes no sense, which doesn’t always bother me, but that combined with other weaknesses makes this a disappointment. One of the book’s main themes is gun con...

Originally published at Reading Reality There’s an absolutely kick-ass military SF story in A Peace Divided. And that story is a marvelous continuance of pretty much everything that has happened to Gunnery Sergeant, now Warden, Torin Kerr from her first introduction in Valor's Choice to her re-eme...

Torin Kerr and company continue to stumble upon seemingly no-win situations with political implications of the inter-galactic variety in A Peace Divided. The mission setup takes about the first 50 pages to really get going, but once it does, Kerr leads her team from one potentially deadly disaste...

http://delivreenlivres.blogspot.fr/20... J'ai malheureusement moins aimé ce tome que les précédents. Un groupe de scientifique a été pris en otage sur une planète reculée et inhabitée. La raison qui fait que cette planète n'a jamais été colonisée est quelle renferme tout un réseau complexe de ruin...

Appréciation générale : la série Confédération a pour principal personnage Torin Kerr dont on suit les missions dans un contexte sf-militaire bien exploité avec un fil rouge. C’est une série bien écrite, avec de l’action et du suspens et des fausses pistes, des problématiques éthiques et relation...

I really like the premise of this book. In this slice of the campaign against the mysterious plastic beings who have created so much chaos, an archaeological team discover what they think might be traces of plastic in a pre-industrial society. And that is enough to draw down some very unwelcome a...

Another exciting outing from Tanya Huff. This series, is my current go-to for military SF: well written, with engaging characters, smart dialog, a nice touch of humor, and lots of action. The plot is fairly straightforward--a group of scientists on a distant planet is being held hostage by a grou...
