On the planet Fortune, tech is low, tensions high, and heroes… unlikely, and none more unlikely than thief-turned-soldier, Gideon Quinn.
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 the chance to clear his name.
Gideon doesn’t have to think twice, and with his pet draco Elvis on his shoulder he 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 at the heart of the Corps which could bring Fortune's new and fragile peace to an explosive end.
And that’s just his first night in town.Soldier of Fortune is first of The Fortune Chronicles, a science fiction-fantasy hybrid set in the distant future, on the engineered planet Fortune. Here readers will discover elements of the Old West, steampunk, and urban fantasy, with a dash of noir and a generous serving of humor.
