Item Details

"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.

This is a fun ride, as is the rest of the series. It's so cool to have a woman save the universe for a change!

If you like the Eve Dallas mysteries, you will love this book.

This was a quick, engaging read, but it's pretty fluffy stuff that relies heavily on Joss Whedon's TV show Firefly, with the armor/gear love of Halo mixed in. I loved Firefly, so this was an easy book to like. Devi, the protagonist is also likeable and mostly believable, but there is a romantic element to the story that can be eye-roll inducing. Setting that aside, I liked this book and can't wait for the next two in the series, due out in February (Honor's Knight) and April (Heaven's Queen) of next year.
