"Robert Buettner is a master writer of military science fiction" - Genregoround reviews, on Orphan's Alliance and the Jason Wander Series
Balance Point, book 3 in the Orphan’s Legacy series from Baen books, will be released in trade paperback April 8, 2014. Series followers will be pleased to reaquaint not only with series protagonist Jazen Parker, but also with Overkill's grezzen.
Balance Pointcontinues the saga of spy games and military action on an interplanetary scale, as the balance point of interplanetary Cold War II between Earth and monolithic Yavet tips unexpectedly toward peace. Covert ops Captain Jazen Parker and his sharp shooting lover and partner Kit Born slide from world saving hazardous duty to escorting a telepathic alien monster home from Earth to mate. And the two of them are forced to consider a quiet domestic future together. But when old enemies’ thirsts for power and revenge, Jazen’s problematic past, and his former girlfriend, upset Jazen and Kit’s personal balance point, the two cold warriors find their relationship, and their very survival, tested as never before. Lost in space, and from one another, they must each penetrate Yavet, the universe’s most insular and repressive world, then foil a plot that could turn Cold War II hot and nuclear—or die trying.
Praise for Orphan's Legacy book 2, Undercurrents:
“A rollicking, fast paced Science Fiction adventure. Buettner’s world may be rife with social and political issues, but the story itself is simply fun, with touches of humor, romance and a few surprises that will delight science fiction fans.” - The Guilded Earlobe
“The ending…elevates the novel from good to great reading…Buettner has channeled a little bit of Scalzi, a little bit of Haldeman, and a dollop of Heinlein for a stimulating science fiction story of military prowess and heroism set in a universe not yet at full-fledged war.” – Grasping For The Wind
