The Better Part of Valor - Tanya Huff I read this in a 2 for 1 Confederation of Valor book.

The Better Part of Valor. Takes place about a week after the first book, Valor's Choice. Torin calls the general a bastard in so many words and then is separated from her platoon to check out a UFO that no one can figure out who it belongs to. Everything seems too perfect and then its not. The time on the UFO was way too long for me and even though it was action-packed, it started becoming redundant. ****
