Soldier of Fortune (Gideon Quinn Adventures Book One)

In the distant future, on the planet Fortune, tech is low, treason high, and heroes unlikely.


Wrongly convicted of treason, Infantry Colonel Gideon Quinn has spent six years harvesting crystal under the killing suns of the Morton Barrens.

So when 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 her offer and with Elvis, his pet draco, boards an airship bound for the city of Nike in search of revenge.

What he finds is plucky street-thief, a city steeped in corruption, and a seeming host of enemies determined to stop Gideon from discovering their deadly purpose… by any means necessary.

Now Gideon finds himself involved in an entirely different kind of war, one that, if he loses, will bring Fortune's new and fragile peace to an explosive end.

 

Praise for Soldier of Fortune

"These characters would be wonderfully appropriate for film media as well. It's been a while since I've been totally captivated by an SF/fantasy series. The author writes so visually, it's easy to see the action whilst reading. Please cast this series soon, Netflix or Amazon!:

—Netgalley Review

"Soldier of Fortune: A Gideon Quinn Adventure has a lot to offer between its endearing characters and remarkable world, complete with all the little touches which sell the planet of Fortune as an expansive, immersive setting."

Self-Publishing Review

"I was sucked in by the story immediately and enjoyed the hints throughout at good background stories. Especially loved the casual hints at a world where LGBTQ relationships are just another part of life and treated exactly the same as any other.
Definitely buying the sequel!"
