Imperial law enforcer Amaranthe Lokdon is good at her job: she can deter thieves and pacify thugs, if not with a blade, then by toppling an eight-foot pile of coffee canisters onto their heads. But when ravaged bodies show up on the waterfront, an arson covers up human sacrifices, and a powerful business coalition plots to kill the emperor, she feels a tad overwhelmed.
Worse, Sicarius, the empire's most notorious assassin is in town. He's tied in with the chaos somehow, but Amaranthe would be a fool to cross his path. Unfortunately, her superiors order her to hunt him down. Either they have an unprecedented belief in her skills... or someone wants her dead.
This has a hidden gem feel to it. The characters so vivid, it’s almost like watching a movie unfold inside your head.
Would recommend this to everyone and anyone.
This is one of the best books I have read in a long time.
Often I was laughing out loud (causing my husband to stare at me strangely). I immediately bought the rest of the series and I recommend it to all my friends who like a good read.
The Emperor's Edge
I accidentally stumbled across this book and really enjoyed it and will read the rest of the series. I noticed a comment that spelling and grammatical errors are rare and had to comment on my own that I found dozens of such errors. I am starting to wonder about the process of these ebooks that continuously publish full of errors. Doesn't anybody check them first in the age of spellcheck, it seems ludicrous.
