Synopsis

The last thing Maldynado Montichelu—former aristocrat and current ladies' man—ever wanted was to be left in charge. After all, the team just blew up a train, crashed a dirigible, and kidnapped the emperor. It's kind of an important time.



But, with Amaranthe captured by the nefarious Forge coalition, and Sicarius off to find her, the team is lacking in leaders. Also, Sicarius has made it clear that Maldynado’s life may be forfeit should anything happen to the emperor while he’s gone.



To make matters worse, Forge’s cutthroats are after Sespian, and the young emperor believes Maldynado's loyalties are suspect. As if it’s his fault that his older brother is working with the coalition to usurp the throne. If Maldynado can’t figure out how to earn the emperor’s trust quickly, Sespian will go off to confront their powerful enemies on his own.



Meanwhile, Amaranthe must find a way to escape from the coalition’s newest ally, Master Interrogator Pike, a man who plans to pull all of the secrets from her head, one way or another…

Maldynado gets his chance
October 31st, 2014
In this the fifth of the Emperor's Edge series, Maldynado is the focus and we see jim striving -at least a little -to beore than he usually us and take a leafetship role- of sorts, and rather unwillingly.

EE gets better with each book. Character and plot have depth and credibility although Maldynado has an amazing ability to recover from serious wounds rather too effortlessly.

Just when you thought you knew where this whole story was going - WOW, what a twist! I love that you begin to experience the story through the eyes of some other characters by the fourth and fifth books of this series - it truly broadens the whole story. I HIGHLY recommend this series!

Another great Emperor's Edge story
March 19th, 2013
Emperor's Edge is a hidden jewel in Kobo. A series blending steampunk, fantasy and sci-fi, it depends as much on its vibrant characters as its rich world building. In Blood and Betrayal, the team of misunderstood heroes is bereft of their leader, Amaranthe, who's fallen into the sadistic clutches of Colonel Pike. Will she betray the precious secret of Sicarius, the assassin she's come to love - who was created by Pike as a weapon of the Empire? Will the Emperor Sespian learn the secret of his birth? And will Maldynado manage to keep the team together without Amaranthe's guidance, or survive the withering sarcasm of Sgt. Evrial Yara? The Emperor's Edge series is always full of spark and romance, even here, where the subject matter can get grim. Only a writer of great talent could create so many memorable characters, while spinning a complex plot full of breathless action sequences. Hopefully the end of Emperor's Edge will not be an end of Lindsey Buroker's writing.
