Fortune’s Pawn by Rachel Bach – Advance Review [Shadowhawk]
Shadowhawk reviews the first novel in a new series by Rachel Aaron, writing as Rachel Bach, as she tackles military space opera after her popular Eli Monpress adventure fantasy series.
“Its not often I get to use the words stunning and spectacular and superb all in the same sentence for a novel, but Fortune’s Pawn is a novel that deserves all those epithets and more. Its a fantastic tale that reminded me often of the old style of space opera, the fun-loving adventure kind that doesn’t take itself too seriously and focuses on the fun above all else.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
