5.0 out of 5 stars A great read and start to a series, 20 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Emperor's Edge (Kindle Edition)
I took a chance on this as it was free, and to be honest the blurb was a 'should i give it a try?' I did and so glad I did.

Amaranthe develops nicely over the book, and through the whole series she grows and develops into herself.

The assassin Sicarius is cold, calculating and extremely efficient, and yet Lindsay's writing draws you in. You want more of him, to discover his secrets, and at the end of this there is a BIG secret revealed. And if you are a hot blooded female then you will fall in love with him.

Books is the daddy of the group, but so delicate you want to mother him, but again he grows and develops over this book and the series as a whole.

As to the other characters. Maldynado is, well he's a male tart but so loveable with it. he is permanently full of joie de vivre that you just have to love him.

And the kid of the group has any many hidden depths that start to come out over the series.

If you want to enter into steampunk territory then this series is perfect. This is a great book to enter into without it being very full on like Mann's series but it drags you in and carries you along at a breakneck speed. Lindsay thankfully doesn't spend paragraph after paragraph describing his world or scenes. he lets you develop the images in your head as you read from what his characters say and do, just like the master writer Terry Pratchett does in his Discworld.

Give this book a go, and i will be surprised if you don't then buy the other books in the series, devour them, then devour the Flash Gold novelettes and then are baying for the next installment out in September.

Go on, be brave.
