The Emperor's Edge

Rated 4.72/5 based on 50 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.

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!

I'm now about to read Book 5 of the series. Love it! It's so amusing. I like reading a book that has few usage and grammar mistakes. I give the series thus far 5 stars and an excellent rating. Great entertainment!

Review by: Sadie S. Forsythe on Feb. 24, 2014 :
I really enjoyed this book. It's not flawless. The incident that sets the whole thing in motion is ridiculously small and therefore the consequences unbelievable and I found some things really quite predictable. However, even with these gripes I just plain had fun with it. The writing is sharp, the dialogue witty, the characters amusing and the world interesting.

I especially liked Amaranthe and Sicarius. I'll admit that the clean-freak, OCD organised woman and the silent killer of a man are pretty cliché character traits, but they are so often used because they're amusing. So I'm going to call them classic instead. I love a strong-willed woman and I have to admit the emotionally distant warrior is one of my favourite character archetypes. Regardless, their repartee worked, as did their tenuous partnership. The rest of the group also contributed to the fun. The way they sniped at one another, but still got the job done was a laugh a minute.

Some books you just love, warts and all. This is one of those books for me. I'll definitely be on the book out for more of Buroker's works and I'm definitely reading book

Addendum: I've finished the series out now and rated them all 5 stars. I thought the latter ones did get a little ridiculous, but I still loved them all.
