The last thing Maldynado Montichelu—former aristocrat and current ladies' man—ever wanted was to be left in charge. After all, the team just blew up a train, crashed a dirigible, and kidnapped the emperor. It's kind of an important time.
But, with Amaranthe captured by the nefarious Forge coalition, and Sicarius off to find her, the team is lacking in leaders. Also, Sicarius has made it clear that Maldynado’s life may be forfeit should anything happen to the emperor while he’s gone.
To make matters worse, Forge’s cutthroats are after Sespian, and the young emperor believes Maldynado's loyalties are suspect. As if it’s his fault that his older brother is working with the coalition to usurp the throne. If Maldynado can’t figure out how to earn the emperor’s trust quickly, Sespian will go off to confront their powerful enemies on his own.
Meanwhile, Amaranthe must find a way to escape from the coalition’s newest ally, Master Interrogator Pike, a man who plans to pull all of the secrets from her head, one way or another…
Blood and Betrayal is the fifth novel in The Emperor’s Edge series. If you haven’t read the first one yet, you can pick it up for free.

For sure the best yet
Have to admit this. I read a lot. I mean an amount that my sister-in-law (another constant reader) told me was impossible. I'm also old, opinionated and stubborn. I read the bible (most boring ever) straight through three times in a week at her house.
What's that got to do with this series and in particular this episode? Absolutely nothing, other than I read a lot.
As a result, I know what I like and think I know a good book. Especially one that brings an entire new format to the surface. Emperors Edge does just that. Not in earth, not in any time we know, aliens and science fiction are certainly there but the story is so out of the ... Well it's totally new. Raging a lot i like new.
It's easy to connect with the characters as your neighbor and suddenly it's brought back to you that you're far away in both space and time.
He writes much better than I; you'll like it!
When will there be another book of the series ? 6?
Good story btw.
