Up Next: "Fortune’s Pawn" by Rachel Bach

Fortune's PawnYou know what is a little bit funny? I really do not remember how I wound up owning a copy of this book. I am glad I do have a copy because I saw an article the other day about the book and it drew my interest enough to bump it into this month’s reading list, but I do not remember buying it. I guess it must have been a spur of the moment purchase on a Kindle Daily Deal or some other sale.

Regardless, I’m excited to give this book a try and if I like it I’ll have to add the other ones in its series to my list as well. I have not read a book with a good female lead in a few months so I’m hoping this one might be just the ticket to fill that void for a little bit. If so, then the other books will definitely get bought I think.



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 just 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./blockquote>

An unabashed fan of science fiction and fantasy books, television, and movies, he wants desperately to someday finish writing a complete novel from start to finish. Working as a web developer by trade, he owns a mighty collection of Star Wars legos, and is willing to talk about sports more than most are comfortable indulging.
