Review: Fortune's Pawn

Fortune's Pawn - Rachel Bach

Really enjoyed this Scifi Action/Romance about Devi, a soldier who dreams of being part of the elite King's guard, the Devastators. She takes a dangerous job on the cursed spaceship, the Glorious Fool to further her goals.


Devi has a one track mind. She's all about her career, her hi-tech body armor and her guns. But once aboard the Glorious Fool she becomes entranced with the enigmatic Rupert who is obviously a lot more than the ship's cook. The other eccentric and mysterious crew members slowly get under her skin as well.


Great action and fight scenes in this. I loved the Lady Gray armor suit. The mystery of who and what are the crew of the Glorious Fool plays out gradually, laying on plenty of suspense and surprises on the way.


Although the immediate danger is over by the end of the book, it does end on a cliffhanger in terms of Devi and Rupert's relationship and the larger story arc of the symbionts. I will be waiting very impatiently for the sequel in February.
