Review of "The Wheel of Fortune" by Alexander Lumans

"The Wheel of Fortune" by fellow Codex Writers' Group member Alexander Lumans appeared in Daily Science Fiction on May 28, 2013.  "You are a teenaged female fighter pilot in a war against invading aliens."

I am biased against second person POV, especially when I have to read half the story before I learn that I am a girl.  You know what I mean.  The story is otherwise well-written, strangely compelling, and the use of the Tarot card device is original, clever, and interesting.  4 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
