Format: Paperback
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.

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.

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!!

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 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.

The story presented an adventure of continuous thrills & suspense for this reader. The ebook was a little slow at times, but not enough to deter from reading more of the tale. Yes, this story is a combination of, the author's, other published books of this series. But, who cares when the story is one which will be enjoyed over & over !

As a voracious reader, I hate short books. In short books, there's no time for character development. No time for a complicated plot. No time to acquaint oneself with the environment.

There is no such problem with Elizabeth Moon's books! She absolutely delivers: great writing; great plots; great, real, likeable, honorable characters and character development. Her dialogue is lively and believable.

I recommend her books without reservation.

And if you haven't read Moon's 5-book Vatta series, you have a real treat ahead.
