In Fortune's Pawn, the first book in the Paradox series, we met Devi Morris, the space-going mercenary who seems to live in her custom-made powered armor, and who'd signed on for a tour as security on a notoriously dangerous trading ship to get the resume bullet she needed to be considered for the most elite force in Paradoxian space, the Devastators, the King's hand-picked armor troops.

But that was a whole book ago, and by now we know that the Glorious Fool isn't really a trading vessel, that the cook isn't really a cook, and that Devi's been infected with something that lets her see the invisible alien menace that's been reducing planets to rubble for the past seventy odd years. We know that, but Devi doesn't, because at the end of Fortune's Pawn she got a memory wipe of all the interesting bits, none of which she was cleared to know. Including the part about falling helmet-over-spaceboots in love with the cook.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The rollicking sequel to Fortune's Pawn -- an action packed science fiction novel.

Devi Morris has a lot of problems. And not the fun, easy-to-shoot kind either.

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.
