"When professional mercenary Deviana Morris took the security guard job aboard the Glorious Fool, all she wanted was a fast route into the Devastators -- the elite league of armored fighters entrusted with the most important duty on her home planet of Paradox. But this security job isn't just twelve-hour patrols, armor-polishing, and whiskey. The supposedly-cursed Captain Caldswell keeps sending Devi and her partner into unimaginably dangerous situations. Ren, the captain's daughter, is a kind of weird that Devi has never experienced before. And to top it off, there's the insufferably sexy cook, Rupert Chekov, who is far more than what he seems -- possibly even far more than human"--

Usually when I see that a book has gone for the use of first person, I groan. It's so easy to get it horribly cringy & wrong. NOT SO FORTUNE'S PAWN. This whole book is like Farscape & Firefly wrapped into one (a lot more Farscape than Firefly it has to be said) with one of the best MC's I've ever read in sci-fi!
It checks off all of my crazy sci-fi draws: insane non-humanoid aliens? CHECK. rift between humans connected to Earth & humans off-world? CHECK. mercenaries with insane weaponry? CHECK. bizarre conspiracies? CHECK. Throw in a dash of hot romance with an even hotter love interest that doesn't come across as super cheesy & holy crap I want to marry this book and this series!
