Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
This week I am spotlighting Honor's Knight by Rachel Bach. This is a science fiction story and the sequel to Fortune's Pawn. I have Heaven's Queen which is the third book in this series on my review pile. Here is the description:
Devi Morris has a lot of problems. And not the fun, easy-to-shoot kind either.Beginning:
After a mysterious attack left her short several memories and one partner, she's determined to keep her head down, do her job, and get on with her life. But even though Devi's not actually looking for it -- trouble keeps finding her. She sees things no one else can, the black stain on her hands is growing, and she is entangled with the cook she's supposed to hate.
But when a deadly crisis exposes far more of the truth than she bargained for, Devi discovers there's worse fates than being shot, and sometimes the only people you can trust are the ones who want you dead.
"You said no?" the girl shrieked, crushing the letter in her fist. "You didn't even think you should ask me first?"Friday 56:
