Fortune's Pawn: Paradox Series, Book 1

Devi Morris isn't your average mercenary. She has plans. Big ones. And a ton of ambition. It's a combination that's going to get her killed one day - but not just yet. That is, until she gets a job on a tiny trade ship with a nasty reputation for surprises. The Glorious Fool isn't misnamed; it likes to get into trouble, so much so that one year of security work under its captain is equal to five years everywhere else. With odds like that, Devi knows she's found the perfect way to get the jump on the next part of her plan.

Publisher's Summary

Devi Morris isn't your average mercenary. She has plans. Big ones. And a ton of ambition. It's a combination that's going to get her killed one day - but not just yet.

That is, until she gets a job on a tiny trade ship with a nasty reputation for surprises. The Glorious Fool isn't misnamed; it likes to get into trouble, so much so that one year of security work under its captain is equal to five years everywhere else. With odds like that, Devi knows she's found the perfect way to get the jump on the next part of her plan. But the Fool doesn't give up its secrets without a fight, and one year on this ship might be more than even Devi can handle.

    "Liked Part of the Book, But Not All"

    Got this book to hear the story of a hard fighting, hard drinking space mercenary. I was expecting the hero to be a tough talking woman who takes down aliens with her big guns. But “Fortune’s Pawn” is also the story of girl meets guy, girl gets guy, girl worries about losing guy. I do not care about the problems of dating in space.

    "Interesting read"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was OK, but couldn't really do authoritative mail voices well. I look forward to the next in the series, though I could have done without the Monarchy drivel. Fortunately it wasn't key to the book.

    Story
    "Crisp Space Opera, Sexy Female Protagonist"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a fresh book. There certainly have been female protagonists in Space Opera, take Kai Vatta, Herris Serrano and Honor Harrington. But I think this is the most feminine role yet. Sure she's tough, and kicks ass, but she's sexy, and feminine, and I enjoyed that aspect of the book. The book doesn't get bogged down with unnecessary description or prose, and is fast paced, and very satisfying!
