Fortune's Pawn: Book 1 of Paradox - Rachel Bach

Ooh that ending, this is SF with a sprinkle of fantasy, reminded me of Marion Zimmer Bradley and some earlier SF writers. Devi Morris is a mercenary with plans and training and now she wants more training and to find it she joins The Glorious Fool, where she might be able to get herself ahead quicker, that or dead. Many secrets and lies and I really enjoyed the read.
