More About the Author

Elizabeth Moon grew up on the Texas-Mexico border, a voracious reader and early writer. She spent much of her early years in a hardware store where nothing was in shrink-wrap or little plastic containers, and mule collars still hung on the back wall. She has a history degree from Rice University and a biology degree from the University of Texas at Austin, plus some graduate work in biology at the University of Texas at San Antonio; between the first two, she spent three years on active duty in the USMC. Her bibliography includes 20+ novels and 30+ short fiction works, nearly all in science fiction or fantasy. REMNANT POPULATION was a Hugo finalist in 1997; THE SPEED OF DARK won the Nebula Award in 2003.

When not writing, she likes to wander around taking pictures of wildlife and native plants, bake bread, eat chocolate, sing with a choir, and laugh.

Customer Reviews

Second time I've read these books.
Suzanne Coose
I read these books (combo volumes in this selection) when they came out as hard bound and had good enough memory to add them onto my kindle.
hCharles Obert
Good action, good character development, and a gripping plot.

First and formost - do not make the mistake that I made. This is NOT a new novel, this book consist of reprints of the original novels: Hunting Party, Winning Colors and Sporting Chance. So be forwarned.
Second - the novels contained are very entertaining, engaging and fun to read. If you like female heros and/or military Sci Fi then you need to check these out.
Normally I would give these stories either 4 or 5 stars, but because these are reprints of her novels from 1994/95 and that information is not in the description, the best I can do is 3 stars.

Heris Serrano (2002) is an omnibus edition of the first three novels in the Familias Regnant series, including Hunting Party, Sporting Chance, and Winning Colors. Heris is a Commander in the Regular Space Service when she is framed and set up to be court-martialed, but takes the offer to resign instead. She accepts an interim job as the captain of a private yacht while she searches for a way to be reinstated. As a scion of a multi-generation RSS family, Heris has not had much contact with the ruling families and encounters a number of surprises. Moreover, there is more widespread corruption within the RSS than she expected.

In Hunting Party (1993), Heris gets the job as the captain of Lady Cecelia's yacht, the Sweet Delight, with six guests aboard at family insistence. Heris will command the crew and Bates will command the staff, including the cook and gardener. The first voyage will be to Sirialis for the fox hunting season. On the way, Heris learns that all is not well with the ship and crew.

In Sporting Chance (1994), the Sweet Delight returns to Rockhouse with the heir apparent aboard, along with various bodyguards and several crew replacements. The prince seems to be a little slow and Lady Cecelia brings this to the King's attention.

Format: Paperback
This book is really, Hunting Part, Sporting Chance and Winning Colors all in one big book! If you love the Serrano/Suiza series this is a must have! This sets up all the history, the muder, the mystery, the politics and the past battles so that once we introduce Esmay Suiza into the circles of the Serrano navel family we know exactly where Heris Serrano has been. If you've read the books that center around Esmay Suiza, you definately need to read this book, it will give you a much clearer picture of what all is going on in the Regents Familia. This 3 books in 1 will also give you a window into why Admiral Serrano treats Suzia the way she does... SO all in all its definately worth the reading time and the cost of the book!!

After stumbling onto one of Elizabeth Moon's earlier books (by way of the Honor Harrington Series). I tried to get all of the books of this universe. I had difficutlies getting copies of the middle story. They were a great read, and went quickly. I love the part of Brun getting Cecilia out of the nursing home. The reader can easily picture the entire mess. While this is a reprint, it is nice to see the three stories put together and readily available.

This is a reprint of three previous titles, but it was great to get them in one book. My paperback's were worn out, I have read them so much. This series doesn't loose it's umph, even on multiple readings! Moon not only has captivating characters, in depth plots, and action: she is a very knowledgeable horseperson. Her involvement in foxhunting, and eventing(among other things) is evident in every page. As an active equestrian myself, I really appreciate her insites into this world.

Let me first say that I like Moon's writing. This compilation of the adventures of Heris Serrano is definitely worth reading, and I like having the whole trilogy in one volume. As usual Moon creates likable and interesting characters and her picture of military life feels realistic. However, parts of this trilogy lacks the good tempo of Moon's usual writing, as she becomes engrossed in the intricacies of horseback riding, clearly a favourite past time of hers. It adds little to the story and slows everything down. It also somehow makes the world-building less believable. The aristocrats who we also get to follow are also somewhat too good to be true. I prefer Moon when she gets more gritty and focuses on the common men and women doing their best under difficult circumstances.

I was disappointed to find that this was just a compilation of three books: Hunting Party, Sporting Chance, and Winning Colors. That was not clear from the purchase page.

The print size is good, and the pages and cover appear to be a decent quality.

I am an Elizabeth Moon fan and have never found one of her books I didn't like. This is not her best effort but is still an entertaining read. It does drag in places but is made up for in other places. Her science is not dwelt on but it is fiction. I like that it is not "mystical" science that makes no sense and she does include many of the limitations that would be expected with real physics. An easy read and I enjoyed it.
