Présentation de l'éditeur

All Sergeant Evrial Yara wanted was to protect the young emperor from those plotting to kill him. Joining forces with a group of notorious outlaws wasn’t part of the plan, especially not when one of them is determined to charm her out of her uniform at every turn. Working with the criminals might have been worth it if their efforts had saved the emperor, but it seems he’s not the rightful heir to the throne.... Evrial may have thrown away her career for nothing.

To make matters worse, fate isn’t going to give her time to calmly decide what to do next. While she’s traveling back to the capital with Amaranthe Lokdon and the rest of the outlaws, Evrial uncovers artifacts that have been smuggled aboard their steamboat. They’re deadly enough to threaten the entire city, perhaps the entire empire. Oh, and they could kill everybody on board the boat too. These scenarios just weren’t discussed in the Enforcer Academy.

This 56,000-word novella takes place between Books 5 and 6 in the Emperor’s Edge series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not your average "day in the life" 10 janvier 2013
Par McReadsALot - Publié sur Amazon.com

Okay, it may be an average day in the life of the EE team.
This is a novella intended to be read between books 5 & 6 of the Emperor's Edge series. Without that background it will still be a funny, enjoyable read, but won't make a whole lot of sense. If you're looking to sample the Emperor's Edge, may I suggest Shadows Over Innocence (an Emperor's Edge short story) or the first book, The Emperor's Edge, both of which are free. :)

If $2.99 seems a little high for something listed as a "novella" let me assure you that it is just over half the length of a regular novel and reads like one. This is by no means a mere "short story." After the intensity of "Conspiracy" and "Blood & Betrayal" it was nice to see a bit more of Buroker's skill with levity. There is still intensity and some good ol' fashioned action, but there was room for the characters to relax and breathe as well.

While we still have Amaranthe's counterpoint, the main focus is on Evrial Yara, a new and uncertain addition to the group. Uncertain because she doesn't know where her loyalties lie, and getting inside her head was a real treat. She has an outsider's perspective on the group, which we haven't actually seen before, and her reactions to their interactions can be priceless. After her experience with them on the train and battling with Forge, Yara still has to make up her mind about whether she will stay with the team. Will she support Sespian, or go back to her life as an enforcer? Now that she's been seen with them, does she even have the choice?

As for the story - we join the team hiding out on a passenger ship making its way back to Stumps. They manage to come across a few Forge members, an acrobatics troupe, one of the most intimidating weapons we've seen yet (this is where having read Encrypted comes in handy), and most surprisingly of all - an explosion. Or two.

Things I loved about this book include the easy movement forward in relationships - familial, platonic, romantic, and physical - that could have involved lots of drama and angst but progress smoothly without either. This cannot be simplified down to "a romantic interlude" because there's far more to it than that, but that does happen too. ;)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must Read for Emperor's Edge Fans 9 janvier 2013
Par KinDallas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
In this novella, which I'm calling EE 5.5, Amaranthe and her motley crew are lying low on a steamboat bound for the capital, in hopes of stopping Forge's master plot (if that didn't make sense, download The Emperor's Edge. It's free and it will get you started--you won't be sorry!). Of course, for this team, nothing ever goes as planned and while on board the ship they discover a nefarious plot that could bring great harm to the city.

Narrated in dual POV by Amaranthe and Sergeant Yara (the team's newest addition, and one of my favorite adds to the series), this story also takes a decidedly romantic turn as Yara continues to be pursued by Mal. Amaranthe and Sicarius 'shippers will be especially happy...and there are plenty of awkward, funny moments to go around as well. Several one-liners will likely become infamous quotes for the series going forward, and I laughed out loud frequently during my read. The story also sets the stage for the sixth book, Forged in Blood, which promises to be quite epic.

For fans of the Emperor's Edge series, this novella is a must-read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 And she does it again. 9 mars 2013

Lindsay Buroker has quickly risen to the top of my favorite author list. Her masterful blend of humor and all around steampunk action has me buying her books left and right haha. Beneath the surface is no exception even being a novella, it has the high level of diction and syntax I've come to expect from Mrs. Buroker and I devoured it in one sitting. Before spoilers ensue im going to cut my review short and just recommend this highly to anyone who's hungry waiting for EE6, its a good tide over and you won't be disappointed.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book, quick read, and funny. 7 février 2013
Par John W. Powers - Publié sur Amazon.com

I am impressed with Lindsay Buroker's writing. The characters are unique and original; not the usual kind you'll find in most fantasy novels. The dialog is witty. Descriptions and scene settings are neither too long nor too short. When reading, if a writer is spending too much time describing a setting I skip to the next paragraph and wonder why the writer will not just get out of the room he or she is describing (Steinbeck come to mind). I didn't skip any paragraph's in The Emperor's edge, and I've read it twice. This is an enjoayble read from a talented writer.

AMAZING is all I have to say. I love these characters so much, if you're a fan of the other books in the EE series YOU MUST READ THIS ONE. So happy that the relationships between Yara & Maldynado and Amaranthe & Sicarius are developing more. I cannot WAIT until book 6!
