To begin, i would just like to mention that i received a free copy of this book from Kathleen and Kelley to read and review.
I’ve always been a total fan of the Fortune series, always great writing, great characters, interesting relationships, with lots of action and shenanigans, and this story was more of the same.
This story follows on from Outrageous Fortune, so do read that first.
In this story Kathleen teams up with Kelley McKinnon once again and what the reader gets is another wonderful adventure with the crew of the Errant when they get a passenger job to carry some doctors to another part of Fortune (they’re like Fortune’s vesion of “Doctors Without Borders), but one of these passengers isn’t who he says he is. Anyway, when this passenger goes to meet up with an old friend all hell breaks loose and, once again, trouble soon finds the crew of the Errant and shenanigans ensue. Plus, we get an update on John and Jagati’s budding romance . . . awwww!
All in all, while not a big long book, it’s a very good little adventure within which we learn a lot more about our favourite airship crew and, also, a very good little adventure that’ll keep you awake reading at bedtime when you should be going to sleep. But who needs sleep, right?
A must read for all Fortune fans and if you’re not a Fortune fan yet then i would humbly suggest that you go to Outrageous Fiction and get a free copy of Soldier of Fortune and give it a read. Yes, the first book in the series is free to try, so what’s stopping you? The planet Fortune is a wonderful stage setting for these really good, character driven adventures that Kathleen and Kelly take us on. If you like lots of action with great characters and great writing you won’t be disappointed.
Bye for now.
