Fey: 1. clairvoyant; able to see into the future 2. to do with or related to fairies 3. fated to die, or having a forboding of death
Major Vince Lombard, Galactic Marine Corps (Ret.) is a professional gambler, slowly working his way back to Earth, one gambling station at a time, when he finds himself at the center of brewing storm. Someone has taken an interest in an old Earth legend, but for what purpose, no one seems to know, exactly.
The fate of the Fey has always been tied to the fate of humanity, but they have been content to stay in the background for ages, without worry that humankind is destined to continue on into the foreseeable future. Humanity has forgotten their very existence, as well as their role in the destiny of both races.
But now, after the better part of two millennia, one of the Fey pops up again, and in the most unlikely place: Many millions of miles away from Old Earth, on a space station that serves as a gambling casino.
A decorated war hero, Vince finds himself at the center of a brewing storm, as humans and aliens alike begin to see the potential uses a fairy can be put to. It's not just that everybody wants one. Everybody wants this one, and it won't be easy to find a path through the problems ahead, keeping his new Fey friend out of the hands of the government, and the aliens, alike. But an old veteran like Vince has a few tricks up his sleeve, still. Could that be why the fairy came to him?
Fairies are capable of things that humans have no explanation for. But they can't do everything, and sometimes, even a fairy needs a hand. Who better than a Galactic Marine to help, when some good old human ingenuity is called for? Maybe Vince has found a friend for life in his Fey companion. If he can save her life, that is.
Fey is a sometimes-whimsical, fun, and light fantasy/sci-fi adventure story.

Excellent Continuation of Series
Absolutely. Following Book One I expected more 'war' adventures of the Space Marine Major. But no, we get the adventure of the poker player hinted at in Book One and an assortment of quirky belivable characters. I should mention that I haven't finished this book as yet.It reminded me of the first time I read Lord Of The Rings in that I never wanted the story to end such was the engaging nature of the story/plot. So it is with Fey.A mixture of Si-Fi and Fantasy that works.
The unexpected development of the plot and of the main character.
Fey. I hope she remains in partnership with the Major.
Never fly 'Solo' if you can take 'Gandalf'.
May the Fey be with you!
Can't wait for Book Three!
