Synopsis

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.

Worse, Sicarius, the empire's most notorious assassin is in town. He's tied in with the chaos somehow, but Amaranthe would be a fool to cross his path. Unfortunately, her superiors order her to hunt him down. Either they have an unprecedented belief in her skills... or someone wants her dead.

I was skeptical at first after having read the description but I enjoyed the book and look forward to the rest of the series. Amaranthe and her team keep the story interesting and the adventure starts and doesn't stop.

A Surprisingly Good Find
February 7th, 2014
Rarely does one find a free ebook that is worth reading and recommending to others. This was that rare book. This story contained colorful characters, gripping plot, and fabulous dialogue. What more could you want in a swashbuckling adventure? This was a fun read. If you're searching for a quick, humorous, well-written adventure story with endearing characters, then read this book. In some ways, it reminded me of The Princess Bride. So, if you liked that movie, book, or both, then read this book. Still not convinced? I enjoyed this book so much that I happily purchased the rest of the books in the series.
