SFRB Recommends #86: The Rule of Luck by Catherine Cerveny

Year 2950. Humanity has survived devastating climate shifts and four world wars, coming out stronger and smarter than ever. Incredible technology is available to all, and enhancements to appearance, intelligence, and physical ability are commonplace.

In this future, Felicia Sevigny has built her fame reading the futures of others.

Alexei Petriv, the most dangerous man in the TriSystem, will trust only Felicia to read his cards. But the future she sees is darker than either of them could ever have imagined. A future that pits them against an all-knowing government, almost superhuman criminals, and something from Felicia's past that she could never have predicted, but that could be the key to saving -- or destroying -- them all.

This series starts with fantastic worldbuilding. Felicia is fighting for her reproductive rights, and finds that the truth about her blacklisting is far more complicated than she was led to believe. In light of this, should she fight her biology? Is it destiny?

The action is clear and fast-paced. I love the philosophical questions this series raises, and look forward to reading further. 

This recommendation by Lee Koven.
