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.
Very well written. Steam punk dystopian setting. Likeable heroine.
Well worth the download characters have excellent definition and structure excellent plot and some nice twists 5 star
Great new series
Stumbled across this and had fairly low expectations partly because some of the series was free and the rest was cheap. I need to apologise to the author, she has offered up an original engaging series with characters of depth and interest. I have paid much more for much poorer quality story telling from more well known authors. Well done Lindsay buroker, I'll be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.
