Fortune's Pawn

Fortune's Pawn

Fans of Firefly and Elizabeth Moon will lap up this action-packed military science fiction series. Welcome to the start of a thrilling new space adventure, starring female mercenary Deviana Morris . . .

Deviana Morris isn’t your average mercenary. She has plans. Big ones. And a ton of ambition. One of those is going to get her killed one day – but not just yet.

Not when she just got 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. And with a reputation for bad luck that makes one year as security detail on this ship equal to five years everywhere else – 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 might be more than even Devi can handle.

Review for FORTUNE’S PAWN:

‘This book kicked ass . . . I just loved it!’ – FELICIA DAY

‘Devi is hands-down one of the best sci-fi heroines I’ve read in years’ – RT BOOK REVIEWS

‘Rollicking space opera starring a tough, sexy, armor-clad space chick . . . [Bach] does a nice job of painting a scenario that, if familiar – think the space marines of the Alien franchise or the motley crew of Firefly – allows her plenty of room for action. And action aplenty is what she delivers . . . Lots of fun’ – KIRKUS REVIEWS

Reviews

It's not often I get to use the words stunning and spectacular and superb all in the same sentence for a novel, but Fortune's Pawn is a novel that deserves all those epithets and more
THE FOUNDING FIELDS
If you liked Star Wars, if you like the Kate Daniels series, and if you are waiting for Guardians of the Galaxy to hit the theaters, this is your book
Ilona Andrews
Part military space opera, part star-crossed romance, all page-turner
WEEKEND HERALD (AUSTRALIA)
Rollicking space opera starring a tough, sexy, armor-clad space chick . . . [Bach] does a nice job of painting a scenario that, if familiar - think the space marines of the Alien franchise or the motley crew of Firefly - allows her plenty of room for action. And action aplenty is what she delivers . . . Lots of fun
KIRKUS REVIEWS
This book kicked ass . . . I just loved it!
Felicia Day
Bach does a good job of showing she's not just an unfeeling, feisty fighting machine, but has flaws and vulnerabilities in a light, fast-action space opera adventure which combines romance and military set pieces in equal measure
GUARDIAN
Devi is hands-down one of the best sci-fi heroines I've read in a long time
RT BOOK REVIEWS
A compelling story that grabs you quickly and pulls you in
