Description

Gideon Quinn has been an orphan, a dodger, a soldier, and a convict. The last thing he expected to be was a hero.

Wrongly convicted of treason, Gideon Quinn has spent six years harvesting crystal under the killing suns of the Morton Barrens, until the day a general of the Colonial Corps arrives with an offer of freedom—and a chance to clear his name.

Gideon doesn't have to think twice. He takes the offer, and with Elvis, his pet draco, on his shoulder, takes 'ship for the city of Nike in search of revenge… and justice (but mostly revenge).

What he finds is a dodger named Mia, a city steeped in corruption, and a menace buried deep at the heart of the Colonial Corps.

Now Gideon only has to survive long enough to uncover the real traitors, before they can bring Fortune's new and fragile peace to an explosive end.

Soldier of Fortune is the first standalone novel in the science-fantasy series, The Fortune Chronicles. If you like down-at-heels heroes, comic banter, and roller-coaster action, you'll love this genre-mashing thrill ride to the brave new world of Fortune.

    Liked it enough to leave my first review. This is superb escapist fantasy, light and wity with enough clever historical and modern cultural references to force any least a few grins from anyone. Fans of Neal Stephenson and more genearally of witty sci-fi, fantasy and steam-punk will love it.

    Great likable characters. Good story line and it builds into future episodes without leaving you hanging. I want to read more and get to know the characters and world of Fortune better.
