Ganwolds Child

Tristan grew up a human among aliens. Now he must use his alienness to survive among humans.

Combat surgeon Darcie Dartmuth is taking her toddler son, Tristan, to rejoin her husband, fighter pilot Young AdultLieutenant Lujan Sergey, when their military transport is captured by alien slavers, the masuki. Darcie and Tristan manage to escape in a lifepod and land on Ganwold, home of the primitive and alien ganan.

Tristan is barely eighteen when Darcie contracts a life-threatening illness. Accompanied by his gan "brother," Pulou, Tristan sets out to seek help for her. When he ventures into an enemy colony, he is captured and turned over to Sector General Mordan Renier, his father's longtime nemesis, who uses Tristan as bait to trigger a new war for Renier's lost homeworld.

Now an Admiral and commander of the Unified Worlds' special forces, the Spherzah, Lujan must repel Renier's impending attack, realizing he could lose the family he has just learned is still alive.

The Sergey Chronicles, one military family's saga and a large-scale epic of interstellar war, begin with the odyssey of Ganwold's Child.

The Sergey  Chronicles

When Tor Books originally published this trilogy in the late 1990s it was called The Saga of the Unified Worlds. It would have been more accurate to call it The Sergey Chronicles because it is, more than anything else, the story of one warrior family—Admiral Lujan Ansellic Sergey, his combat surgeon wife Captain Darcie Dartmuth, and their teenage son, Tristan Sergey—who become caught at the fulcrum of interstellar politics and the demands of their military duty. Wrenched apart and scattered across the galaxy by the brutalities of war, they face captivity, torture, coercion, and epic space battles to be reunited. Only then do their most devastating challenges begin. Having been separated by decades of time as well as lightyears of distance, each of them must confront his or her own internal demons to make their family truly whole again, and to defeat a new and more insidious threat to their civilization. Between deadly special operations missions and scenes of deep-cover political intrigue runs a thread that proves how much one family can accomplish with patience, forgiveness, trust, dedication, and unity of purpose.

Forthcoming.

In the past, when I considered important women writers of military science fiction, three names have stood out most prominently: C.J. Cherryh, Lois McMaster Bujold, and Elizabeth Moon. Now I will add Diann Thornley Read to my list. With each novel, it becomes more and more evident just how important she has become to this field.” (Dave Wolverton, NYT best-selling author of The Courtship of Princess Leia and, as David Farland, The Runelords series.)
