On the planet Fortune, tech is low, tensions high, and heroes unlikely.

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

Then a general of the Colonial Corps arrives with an offer of freedom, and the chance to clear his name.

Gideon doesn't have to think twice, and with his pet draco Elvis on his shoulder, he takes 'ship for the city of Nike in search of revenge. And justice. But mostly revenge.

What he finds is a dodger named Mia, a city steeped in corruption, and a menace at the heart of the Colonial Corps which could bring Fortune's new and fragile peace to an explosive end.

And that's just his first night in town.

Soldier of Fortune is the first standalone novel in the science-fantasy series, The Fortune Chronicles. If you like down-at-heels heroes, three-dimensional characters and roller-coaster action, you'll love Kathleen McClure's genre-mashing adventure.

    Liked it enough to leave my first review. This is superb escapist fantasy, light and wity with enough clever historical and modern cultural references to force any least a few grins from anyone. Fans of Neal Stephenson and more genearally of witty sci-fi, fantasy and steam-punk will love it.

    Great likable characters. Good story line and it builds into future episodes without leaving you hanging. I want to read more and get to know the characters and world of Fortune better.
