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.

Although this book doesn't appear as a number within the series you really need to read it in order to understand what happens between books 4&5 that leads to the events in book 5. Call it EE 4.5.

I loved this story! Never a dull moment! Though you'd definitely have to read the previous books in the series in order to appreciate it. I'm glad I did and when I finish with the rest of the series, I plan on reading them again.

A good read
April 7th, 2013
As always, the gang offers hilarious humor and exciting journey. However this book also gives us a chance to see another side of sicarious and a peek into maldynado-yara. It's a must read.
