Charlie Norwood, a goblin-exterminating bounty hunter working in the frontier desert, finds herself embroiled in conspiracy when she stumbles across some gnomeish warmechs chasing down an elven prince.
Awesome world. Nice mesh of fantasy and guns and mechs. Nicely detailed writing.
Practical main character, bounty hunter who manages to live in a wasteland. Gives a sort of Fallout vibe but with fantasy.
