A great short story from the Emperor's Edge universe. This story gives an extra level of realism to all of Lindsay's works.
Including characters from the Emperor's Edge series this is a superb look inside the history of the world's most infamous assassin.
Great book and worth a lot more than FREE!

It's wonderful to have even more backstory and information about this fantasy world that I love.

This short but entracing story tells the tale from the angle of a character this world has not seen inside the head of before.

All in all, well worth a read.

I do not know how Lindsay does it! How she manages to write this short, but 'Oh so sweet' glimpse inside of Sicarius' mind while giving her EE fans information, but keeping some of the bigger secrets hidden from those who may only be new to the EE world is beyond me!

I felt like I was reading a coded message straight from the head of EEIA (Emperor's Edge Intelligence Agency), I could read into the message all the things I have gleaned from my previous EE reading, yet someone completely new would go away with a full story too, just less intricate, less involved, but no less satisfying.

Is it weird that being inside of Sicarius' head was exactly like I thought it would be like?

Lindsay, I take my hat off to you! Brilliantly written as always!
