Honor's Knight by Rachel Bach
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is good stuff!
I love it when a story does things I don't expect, and this book doesn't disappoint! Honor's Knight is not your ordinary space marine story. Devi is a female mercenary who just wants to survive her current assignment long enough to get accepted into the Devastators elite special forces team. But her current captain has a bad habit of getting his mercenary security guards killed in the line of duty, and he's definitely no ordinary trading captain. Devi's only been on a few months, but has seen plenty of action, and inadvertently stumbled into a war she didn't know existed. And she's become a weapon all the sides either want to use or suppress. And Devi doesn't even know which side she's supposed to be on.
There's so much more to this novel; you have to experience it for yourself!
Honor's Knight is the sequel to Fortune's Pawn, part of the Paradox trilogy. The next book is due out later this year. (I love that Orbit Books is putting out complete series within months instead of making us wait years between books.)
The author, Rachel Bach, also wrote a fantastic fantasy series under the name Rachel Aaron. That's the Eli Monpress series and I highly recommend that too!
Fans of awesome military space fiction will love this. Read it!
