The Emperor's Edge - Lindsay Buroker
The Emperor's Edge is the first novel in the Emperor's Edge series. This book is free for the kindle. Think steampunk with magic, murder, and intrigue. Corporal Amaranthe Lokdon is a government enforcer. She's one of the few women on the force. Women in Turgonia are expected to take up commerce, not law enforcement. When Amaranthe runs into the young emperor Sespian Savarsin, while handily stopping a robbery, she doesn't think much of it. Unfortunately, Amaranthe made an impression on Sespian, and that leads to a chain of events nobody could predict. Amaranthe will be fighting for her life, and the life of the emperor, before she reaches the end of that chain, if she reaches the end. There is magic, monsters, and assassins galore in this great steampunk adventure. I already paid money for the second book in the series. I don't pay money for many books. Very highly recommended.
