Devi Morris likes guys well enough, when she's not fighting aliens and space pirates in her custom made powered armor, but when she signs onto the Glorious Fool as security, she expects the most exciting thing she'll encounter is flesh eating lizards. She does not expect to wind up facing a galactic threat that has the power to reduce worlds to rubble. To say nothing about the cook.

From official release/information:

Product Description:

Devi Morris isn't your average mercenary. She has plans. Big ones. And a ton of ambition. It's a combination that's going to get her killed one day - but not just yet.

That is, until she just gets a job on a tiny trade ship with a nasty reputation for surprises. The Glorious Fool isn't misnamed: it likes to get into trouble, so much so that one year of security work under its captain is equal to five years everywhere else. With odds like that, Devi knows she's found the perfect way to get the jump on the next part of her Plan. But the Fool doesn't give up its secrets without a fight, and one year on this ship might be more than even Devi can handle.

If Sigouney Weaver in Alien met Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica, you'd get Deviana Morris -- a hot new mercenary earning her stripes to join an elite fighting force. Until one alien bite throws her whole future into jeopardy.
