"Rollicking space opera starring a tough, sexy, armor-clad space chick...Lots of fun."―Kirkus on Fortune's Pawn

"Fans of Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan series and David Weber's Honor Harrington novels should enjoy starting another potentially long-running SF military saga."―Library Journal on Fortune's Pawn

Présentation de l'éditeur

From the moment she took a job on Captain Caldswell's doomed ship, Devi Morris's life has been one disaster after another: government conspiracies, two alien races out for her blood and an incurable virus that's eating her alive. Now, with the captain missing and everyone - even her own government - determined to hunt her down, things are going from bad to impossible.

The sensible plan would be to hide and wait for things to blow over, but Devi's never been one to shy from a fight, and she's getting mighty sick of running. It's time to put this crisis on her terms and do what she knows is right. But with all human life hanging on her actions, the price of taking a stand might be more than she can pay.

J'ai tellement aimé le volume 1 que je ne pouvais me priver de continuer l'histoire. Le livre a par ailleurs une couverture magnifique. A recommander aux amateurs d'héroïnes guerrières galactiques du type Ellen Ripley d'Alien...

I did not expect much when I bought the first book of this trilogy, and I ended up reading all three in less than a week! Its a nice, fun read, and I greatly enjoy Rachel Bach, which gives you a good idea of the world the story is set in without the overbearing details that other authors tend to go for.

HASH(0x97d333cc) étoiles sur 5 Great Ending To a Complex and Interesting Series 22 avril 2014
Par Talvi - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Heaven's Queen exuberantly concludes the action packed and well written Paradox trilogy. I greatly enjoyed all three books: a gripping story where there are layers of morality and character, no one is all good or wholly evil, no outcome is guaranteed, and you can bet our plucky merc heroine is going to fight until the end. This is a series I heartily recommend for its humor, non stop action, excellent world building, and distinct, complex, nuanced characters.

Plot: Devi and Rupert have escaped in the Xith'Cal escape pod and want to find a place to hide out from the Eyes, Terrans, aliens, and everyone else in the universe bent on finding them. But an afterthought from an old friend will plunge the couple right back into the storm - with old friends now working against them and more than their own fates at stake.

At the center of the series is Devi - a simple girl with the heart of a soldier and strength of will. In the first book, I worried that the romance would 'emasculate' her to the extent that she became a soppy mess of romantic goo. Boy, was I wrong. By the second book, she is still fighting with all her heart but we're never given a sense that she is omnipotent or a super fighter. Just that she is tenacious, flawed, and doing the best she can with what she is given.

Caldwell, Maat, and the other characters, as conflicted as they are, really create a sense of place. Although at times I felt Rupert was more her handbag than a valued partner, I still had to love that it was never black and white for him or any of the other characters. They are all doing what they believe is the right thing to save humanity in a very dangerous universe.

The plot built greatly from the first book. As with a stone thrown into a still pond, the ripples became larger and larger in a very organic manner. The worldbuilding and story really are superb throughout, with the author dropping just enough hints to keep us reading and not give too much away.

By this third book, Bach really caught her stride with Devi - her bon mots were sharp and on point, loving adoration of her armor and guns a great affectation, and dogged view of a very conflicted situation steadfast. Devi is definitely loveable in the best way possible: an everywoman who knows what she is and what she wants to be.

This is a really great read. Each book in the series topped itself for action, plot, and writing, building strength upon strength with each page. It's so rare to get a trilogy where the plot not only tightens and builds but also the characters grow yet remain consistently unique in their own ways. Author Bach really did a great job of keeping this tightly written.

This will definitely be one of my favorite books, if not series, this year. Highly recommended.

Reviewed from an ARC.

HASH(0x97d33420) étoiles sur 5 3.5 stars: a decent conclusion to a somewhat offbeat series 27 avril 2014
Par Cissa - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book does not stand alone. Do not read it unless you've read the previous 2.

For me, this one was- OK. the various plot elements from the first 2 books ended up having a very straightforward solution... which was opposed by the Powers That Be for various reasons, so our heroine renegade had to work around them. Fair enough.

I did think the threads were resolved a bit too simply. And the romance thread got seriously treacly toward the end, which did not fit with the hard-core soldiers involved.

There was some great world-building that was not shown to full advantage here.

I do want to say that Devi is one of the more coherent and consistent characters I've read lately. She's a tough chick, and her first impulse to anything is to kick ass... but she has learned and grown- some- and despite the romance, ended up with exactly what she wanted from the beginning (plus her lad). I liked that she did not get all sensitive and girly, even in the romance. I do love me a heroine with FOCUS!

This was lighter space opera than it looked like it could have been in "Fortune's Pawn" (book #1). It's still a fun read.

HASH(0x97d336fc) étoiles sur 5 Fantastic Conclusion to an Outstanding Trilogy 26 décembre 2014
Par Barbara Elness - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Wow, this final book in the Paradox trilogy was astounding, I loved it so much. In this last book, Deviana Morris is getting tired of all the running she’s had to do to escape everyone who is either out to control her and the deadly virus she’s carrying, or just flat out kill her. Doing either is more difficult that you would think, since Devi is a skilled fighter and has managed to acquire a few allies that are ready to help her. She’s trying to find a way to resolve a bad situation, with the least loss of life, including her own. She’s made a promise that she’s determined to keep, and even if everyone else thinks it may result in the end of their existence, she thinks she can find a way, even if it means giving everything to do it. I had my doubts about Devi’s romantic interest, since there were some pretty unforgivable actions in the previous book, but I think there was redemption as he became a stalwart defender, asking nothing in return, and at considerable cost to him with the betrayal of all he had been loyal to for so many years. The conclusion was exciting, heartbreaking, and ultimately totally satisfying; a wonderful end to such a fantastic series.

HASH(0x97d335f4) étoiles sur 5 Fantastic climax to a fun, SF series. 25 avril 2014
Par M. Wanchoo - Publié sur
Format: Broché
ANALYSIS: I’m a big fan of Rachel Aaron, that’s pretty evident to readers of this blog. I’ve been following her books since I happened upon Spirit Thief and it’s to her credit that since 2010 she’s also finished her second series in a completely different genre. This review will be talking about the preceding titles in the Paradox trilogy so for readers who haven’t read the previous ones please stop and read the earlier books.

Heaven's Queen is the concluding volume in the Deviana Morris trilogy and as far as endings go, a smashing one. The prologue reveals a big secret of the past in regards to the formation of the Eyes as well as how the Lelgis first came up with a solution for the phantoms. We get to see it all from Brian Caldswell’s POV and also how Maat got a permanent location. We find ourselves back with Devi and Rupert who have to iron the mess that have been their professional & personal lives. Also before they can do so, Devi it seems is on time-ticker with regards to the Plasmex virus within her. Everyone including the Eyes, Paradoxian, Terran & the Lelgis are after them & her options are running out to figure out what her endgame will be. This is the main plot of this volume and of course there are a lot more surprises within.

All but the main secrets have been revealed in the second volume Honor's Knight, but in this one we are privy to what really started the war for saving our universe & how Brian Caldswell became such a pivotal figure in it. Not only are we shown that crucial scene but also Brian’s past is laid bare which goes a long way in explaining his actions so far & all that he attempts in this one. Devi on the other hand is still the same motormouth armored badass that we have come to expect. She however also shows a lot of fortitude and guts with her decisions in regards to Rupert and Maat. There's also much more about Maat, her daughters and why she has been imprisoned so far.

That’s the big focus of the story; the whole universe is in major trouble and its upto our protagonists to resolve the crisis. I loved how the author managed to shift the focus on to this aspect of the story as in the first two books, the story while being Devi-centric was more focused on what she did and happened around her. In Heaven’s Queen, the plot while being Devi-centric manages to convey the sense of dread and ultimately the journey that she undertakes. I enjoyed the action sequences set in the story and also the fact that we got to see a crucial personage from the Paradoxian world.

Lastly we get down to Devi and Rupert. While the romantic aspect of the story was a bit toned down due to it being the finale, for those looking for some romantic action will not be entirely disappointed. A massive ending ensues and once again Rachel Bach/Aaron proves that she never does things on a tiny scale. With this story she was looking to combine SF action with a strong does of romance and she was able to do that rather admirably if you look at the entire trilogy as a whole. For those wanting their action fix, she doesn’t disappoint either and somehow manages to make the climax epic and yet focused on a few individuals. The pace of the story never lets up and will have the reader turning pages to see how it all ends.

Now as with trilogy endings, there are always going to be a few things that you might not like. For me there was a sort of imperfect balance between the action sequences as well as the romance in the story. While the first two books managed to be precise with this aspect, somehow Heaven’s Queen wasn’t able to continue that trend. Sure I might be completely wrong about this and others might like this book better than its predecessors. But for me the first two books were superior to this one.

Also we don’t quite get a proper reveal about the Terran-Paradoxian split, this was something I was very curious to know. Also the Paradoxian society was never quite revealed but only glimpsed via conversations. Now with the trilogy being focused on all other worlds except Terran & paradox, I don’t blame the author for not being able to reveal more. I’m hoping that she does manage to write another series in this universe wherein these queries can be resolved.

CONCLUSION: Rachel Bach ends the Paradox trilogy on a note that will strongly resonate with her readers and fans of Devi Morris. Sure there are a couple of things that didn’t match up to my expectations but these are simply minor details in what turns out to be a smashing read filled with action, romance and a strong does of humor from a motormouth mercenary who manages to leave everyone speechless. Heaven’s Queen is an epic ending to a fun trilogy that will be ideal for fans who love great characters and incredible settings.

Not as strong as second book. Does tie up all the plot strands. Fast paced and action filled. Two weaknesses are first the hole in the universe is not explained or really resolved and the ending with the main character accepting the goal she began began the series with shows a certain lack of personnal growth.
