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.

If Sigouney Weaver in Alien met Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica, you'd get Deviana Morris — a hot new mercenary earning her stripes to join an elite fighting force. Until one alien bite throws her whole future into jeopardy.

2.5 Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach (it gets a bit ranty)
Series: Paradox #1 I really wasn’t sure what to rate this (I still haven’t decided as I write these words). The author started off as a fantasy writer and it shows. I think the book might be geared more towards fantasy fans that don’t mind reading stories in space. I wasn’t expecting too much from...

3.0 Fortune's Pawn
Well after an interesting though confusing start, I ended up just feeling okay towards the first book in this trilogy. I don't have enough interest to read books #2 and #3 and I think that's primarily because the world building was not that great and the characters were not very well developed. But ...

Starts slow, but then it's really fascinating - with an open end which forces you to search for the next book
