Overview

Soldier of Fortune: A Gideon Quinn Adventure by Kathleen McClure

The city of Nike needs a hero. What it gets is a vengeful soldier, a plucky dodger, and a draco with attitude.

Wrongly convicted of treason, Gideon Quinn has spent six years harvesting crystal under the murderous suns of the Morton Barrens. The last thing he expects is for the general who first sentenced him to arrive with an offer of freedom, and the chance to clear his name. Not one to question honey in the comb, Gideon, and his pet draco, Elvis, take ‘ship to Nike in search of answers. And possibly revenge.

Mia is one of the countless dodgers working the mean streets of Nike, treading a razor-sharp edge between fulfilling her love of books and pleasing her cruel hive-master. But when her fagin orders her to steal Gideon’s draco, Mia is faced with a plot twist unlike any she’s ever read.

Soon Gideon, Mia, and Elvis are on the run in a city steeped in corruption, while Gideon continues to hunt for a menace that could 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 brave new worlds, comic banter, three-dimensional characters, and free-wheeling action, you’ll love Kathleen McClure’s genre-mashing adventure.

Well-crafted story, characters that are fully developed and story line that captures your interest immediately. Reminiscent of Dresden files, Firefly, or a Miles Vorkosigan adventure. Rarely have I come across such a well-written book as a freebie. Thanks and keep up the good work!

The beginning will lead you to believe there is going to be a slow go but the story leaps at you from the moment Gideon deplanes!! From the spunky dodger to the ever watchful Draco it's a never ending run around the city. This is a must read and I cannot wait to start the next book!!

The book is good and had a good plot. Would like to have known more on what the main character was doing while everyone else was setting the stage. I also had a little trouble following the story line in the beginning. Would recommend the book.
