Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Fortuna by Kristyn Merbeth

Can’t-Wait Wednesday, aka Waiting on Wednesday, is a weekly meme originating from Jill at Breaking the Spine and now hosted by Wishful Endings. If you’re interested in participating, stop by Wishful Endings to link up your posts.


Scorpia Kaiser has always stood in Corvus’s shadow until the day her older brother abandons their family to participate in a profitless war. However, becoming the heir to her mother’s smuggling operation is not an easy transition for the always rebellious, usually reckless, and occasionally drunk pilot of the Fortuna, an aging cargo ship and the only home Scorpia has ever known.

But when a deal turns deadly and Corvus returns from the war, Scorpia’s plans to take over the family business are interrupted, and the Kaiser siblings are forced to make a choice: take responsibility for their family’s involvement in a devastating massacre or lay low and hope it blows over.

Too bad Scorpia was never any good at staying out of a fight.

Yay, more new space opera! This is the kind of science fiction I can get behind.  This one looks interesting, and I’m looking forward to checking it out. Fortuna is expected October 8th, 2019 from Orbit.

    I’ve got so many things to read this fall, but I don’t think I can resist adding this one to the stack! BTW, there’s a couple different dates on Goodreads, but the Orbit site says this one drops Nov. 5th.
