Fortune's Favors (Adventures in the Liaden Universe #28), by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller

Pinbeam Books, April 2019

Mar Tyn eys'Ornstahl is a Luck, which isn't always a good thing, especially on Solcintra, where people know what it means. Things happens around Lucks; they're not always good things. Mar Tyn, for instance, has recently lost his home and his savings, suffered some serious injury, and brought harm on people he might previously have considered friends, and wound up in the bakery, school, and stronghold that is the home of Don Eyr and Serana fer'Gasta.

He's going to draw trouble on these kind people who have rescued him and treated his injuries, unless he gets away from them, and yet his Luck keeps drawing him back to them. Life in the Liaden universe is never easy, but it's also never dull. This is a great story that I enjoyed very much.

The bonus extra here is essentially an outtake scene, that didn't quite fit in either Neogenesis or Accepting the Lance (not yet out when I write this.) Kamele, Daav, and Aelliana need to get properly acquainted. It's slight--as I said, just an outtake scene--but delightful.

All in all, recommended. Enjoy!

I bought this chapbook.
