Honor’s Knight (Book 2, Paradox Series)

Honor's KnightHonor’s KnightHonor's Knight (Paradox) by Rachel Bach by Rachel Bach

I loved book one in Bach’s Paradox series, Fortune’s Pawn, so I was eager to continue with Devi’s story.

That story gets even more complicated and dangerous in this installment. Bach excels at pacing – there is lots of action, but it never gets out of control – and at upping the stakes for Devi at every turn. Even though I know that’s what she’s doing from a technical standpoint, I still found myself wondering how on earth she’d resolve things. And unfortunately I’m still wondering, as there’s another book left to come!

While I preferred the first book (and saying the main reason why might be a spoiler for it and/or this one), Honor’s Knight was still really fun, and I’m anxious to discover how the story concludes in the final book, as I wait impatiently for my turn at the library. Recommended for science fiction fans, but please read Fortune’s Pawn first – things won’t make much sense otherwise, and you’ll miss out on a lot of the enjoyment in discovering what’s going on as Devi does.

Publisher’s 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.
