The Emperor's Edge

Rated 4.74/5 based on 53 reviews
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.... More

A friend raved about it so I downloaded my own copy because I wanted to read it and see what the fuss was all about. I was hooked!

Loved this.

I have purchased the series before I realized the first three were free as a trilogy and they were so good that I have NO regrets for paying for the books 2 and 3! Lindsay is generous in her book lengths, her books, and every other aspect of her novels as far as I can tell. For this reason among others, she has earned a loyal follower in her career. I have paid for triologys that I couldn't make it through the first novel. This one that is being given away, I couldn't put down! Other novels are short and don't give you the feeling that you got what you paid for. This series of novels are what us old folks consider 'Gettin yer money's worth' and more. Her characters are well fleshed out and very enjoyable to get to know. Her character building take priority over world building but neither lack in scope or detail. Her humor and creativity is top notch. Her characters are well fleshed out and they have a great character arch that I enjoyed. These are the type of people you want to read more and more about. I have yet to read her other series but so far this aurthor is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

AWESOME! Lindsay gives us an entire novel right off the bat to showcase her writing abilities, and are they good! Her characters are endearing, her humor is excellent, her story line is intriguing, and her book just suck you in and entertain you till the very last page! Too many authors only give you a chapter to judge their work. I like that Lindsay is willing to give us a fair example and because of this she has made me a great fan.

Great story. Excellent mix of excitement, character development, and humor. Great writing as well: throughout the book keeps your interest level very, very high. I enjoyed it so much I've just purchased the second book in the series.

Besides the intricate fantasy world that the author created, I very much enjoyed the humor in this book; it was dry and self-deprecating and made me laugh out loud. The greatest compliment I can give is that I purchased the entire series.

I absolutely love this book!!!! The characters are so real and enjoyable.
I love the way that amaranthe refuses to give up what she believes is right even when everything seems to say give up.... Including dying.
I love sicarius and how at first he seems to cold but warms up and eventually sticks around just cause he likes her, even if he won't admit it.... At first.
I have read almost all of her books and love the way she weaves things together and how everything comes together in the end.
I will definitely read more from her!

Fast, furious pace, descriptive, and I read it in about 3 hours, couldn't put it down! Magic and mayhem abound in a fantasy world that was just so much fun for me to read. And praise to the author for actually using words with more than three syllables, sentences that flowed easily and descriptive enough without being overly so made this a wonderful after dinner read! Great characters, all with flaws and foibles to make for some fun times and some funny times along with the edge of your seat action. Well done!
