Part of The Sectors SF Romance series by Veronica Scott. Larissa Channer is a mercenary out with some of her buds when they visit a carnival and decide to get their fortunes. But Larissa knows that something is off. The fortune teller appears to be enslaved and Larissa feels the need to help him. Samell, the fortune teller is really a priest from Tulavarra. He and many of his people were kidnapped by the Shemdylann and sold into slavery.

Of all of Veronica Scott's books I think I really like the

4 stars.

For the first time, we have a kick-ass female ex-Special Forces turned Mercenary, Larissa, as the heroine. On a break after an ops, she and her friends went to a carnival where they had their fortunes read. But the fortune teller asked for her help telepathically and she couldn't resist getting involved.

The fortune teller turned out to be a Tulavarran high-priest, Samell, imprisoned and used by the bad guys to take secrets out of people's minds. What follows is another action-packed ins

Another hit from Veronica Scott. I love her Sectors series--strong military men and the women they rescue. The Fated Stars has a unique twist. A female hero. Larissa is retired military and, for the past 10 years, a mercenary. Samell is a captured priest who needs rescuing. He's no wimp, though. Under a spell and restrained in stasis, he chafes at his captivity but is worn out and nearly hopeless. Until Larissa comes along, reluctantly accompanying her friends to a circus. Amazingly, she can hea ...more

Good twist on Scott's always excellent Sectors SF romance series. In this one the Warrior (retired military, now mercenary) is the heroine, while the hero, although far from a wimp, is the High Priest and leader of his people, and the one who needs rescuing--from a "carnival" (there's more to it than that) where he is being held as a captive fortune teller. If you like your SFR on the SF end of the scale, you'll enjoy any of Scott's Sectors stories.

A great addition to the series.

A thoroughly enjoyable addition to the sector's series. It is nice to see the lead female have a more prominent role. If you keep writing I will keep reading. This is worthy of space on my Kindle. And that is the highest Accolade I can give.

Interesting, with a few issues

Generally this was a fun read. I’m thinking of buying others in the series, though reviews that say the books are formulaic concern me.
On the upside -
1. Reversal of usual gender roles: begins with woman as the merc warrior, man as the priest in need of a rescue, and those roles are flexible in the remainder of the book.
2. Lots of races, some of whom reminded me of those in other books, but that’s a hazard of a now-crowded field.
3. People from all the human-side rac

Larissa Channer cannot get the fortune teller off of her mind. She is a woman who cannot tolerate any form of slavery so she decides to act to free Samell who is being held against his will. This is the first time we have a story that features a male who has been kidnapped and sold so his powerful empathic powers can be used for the profit of others. Larissa and Samell end up on a very dangerous journey. Change has arrived and Samell and his people have come under the protect. That protection ju ...more

Mercenary and former soldier Larissa attends a carnival on a backwater planet with some friends. They enter a "fortune teller's" tent for a cheesy fortune, but the fortune teller is a man who Larissa realizes is being held against his will. He is able to psychically connect with her and tells her that he is a priest from a distant planet, kidnapped with many of his people and forced to read the minds of diplomats for spy purposes while in the disguise of fortune teller.

Super Cute!

What a great read, did not want to put it down. The Heroen was so strong and smart, I absolutely loved the idea that the female was the Warrior, you never read about the female being the stronger character and I loved it! Alissa was such a smart person and on top of her game, didn't let life's little hiccups bring her down. Thanks Veronica Scott, wonderful job!

Veronica Scott grew up in a house with a library as its heart. Dad loved science fiction, Mom loved ancient history and Veronica thought there needed to be more romance in everything. When she ran out of books to read, she started writing her own stories.
