An enforcer wanted dead for crimes she didn’t commit...

An assassin wanted dead for crimes he did commit…

Normally, they would be enemies, but they both seek the same thing: exoneration.

Unfortunately, a nefarious underground organization is attempting to kill the one man who could grant it to them, the emperor. If they want to win their freedom, they’ll have to battle powerful wizards, outscheme master schemers, and defeat bloodthirsty monsters, all while dodging friendly fire and evading the law. Exoneration isn’t easy.

This boxed set includes the first three novels in this high fantasy adventure series:

  • The Emperor’s Edge
  • Dark Currents
  • Deadly Games.

Amazing, Loved it!
March 18th, 2015
These are the first three books to the Emperor's Edge series, and I have to say they are amazing! I really enjoyed them. Here's the positive: -Great characters - the characters all have depth and are well developed. Before long you will fall in love with our misfit band of outlaws. Their emotions are vividly brought to life, and I found them completely realistic. -Action-packed plots - the plots contain lots of action and twists. There is a touch of mystery to every book feeding the overarching plot line that spans the entire series. The plot of each individual book is engaging -Humour - Certain characters are hilarious, their comments and banter will keep you laughing! -Magic- or as its called in this series *mental science* is really well-done, with rules and limitations the author keeps it realistic while adding a touch of the paranormal -Steampunk - the plot is set in a detailed world that Lindsay Buroker brings to life for us. In this world, despite the rapidly advancing technology we are still in the world of steam engines and robots -Fighting - and lots of it, one of the main characters is a former assassin, and the plot takes place in a war-oriented empire. The negatives: I really can't think about anything that bothered me throughout these books. There is some mature content later on in the series (between politics, bloodbaths, and romance what do you expect), nothing too bad, but I wouldn't recommend to children. Of course, I have been told that I am very conservative in such matters. I would recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of steampunk, adventure and humour. A great read!

Great read

I'll have to buy the 4th book and beyond, given how much I enjoyed this trilogy. Written with a sense of humour, the characters come to life and make the story, though there's nothing wrong with the section. I think this would make a great movie or series. I'd watch :-)

A generally fast-paced yarn with lots of clever wit. Very enjoyable. Was hoping for a resolution, but will now have to read the sequels.

My review...Honest and true.
February 23rd, 2014
Very interesting and refreshing story. I have been a fan of SteamPunk art for a long time, never before these books,have I read any SteamPunk books. This is also my first book where a women is the leading and heroine character but even so, these books do not feel overly romantic or girlish at all. All my pre-concepted paradigms and stereotypes have been chattered. Bravo! I would recommend this book 10 out 10 to anyone interested in sci-fi, mystery, detective or action with a twist of victorian technology... In other word everything that is SteamPunk. Thank you very much Lindsay Buroker for a refreshing and exciting series. I look foward to more of you books and stories!

I only gave 4 stars, because the first book has some awkward moments. But the more she writes, the better author that Lindsay Buroker becomes! As the story progresses through the first 3 books of this series (here in one package), you will find yourself drawn into this world, and unwilling to let it go! A must-read for all High-Fantasy lovers!

Fantastic humor & subtle romance
March 11th, 2013
Wow. I LOVED the humor most of all. The bantering heroes and the subtle romance were priceless. A mere touch between our heroine and her love could mean so much and feel so exciting. I'd say that's no easy feat! Kudos
