Really needs to be read as part of the series. Anywhere after the first book. As a stand alone it doesnt give you the appreciation of the events taking place. As per Ms Buroker's other books its very well crafted and an enjoyable short read. The insight into Sicarius is interesting - how much of a bad boy is he really....His loyalty and empathy for Prince Sespian is a mystery that gets explored further into the series. Multiple story and character threads and an entertaining, engaging and witty series has made me a lifelong fan of Ms Buroker's Emperor's Edge series. Shadows Over Innocence is available free on LB's website.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice short back story 24 April 2014

Gives a little background and depth to certain characters and events from 'The Emperor's Edge' series.

As with her longer works, Lindsay Buroker's writing is superb.

A fab little story.

3.0 out of 5 stars intro to a series 24 April 2014

good and enjoyable but it is just an intro to the universe of the emperors edge, and will require you to read all the books just to get a conclusion if there is one.

A good short story, Sicarius is as enigmatic as ever, the relationship between him and the prince is still puzzling
