Disappointing. I started reading this series because book one was a decent adventure, and the romance was just a reasonable side plot. However with this book, the new romance is much more prominent, and sadly much worse.

Despite the characters allegedly having a real initial hatred of each other, it doesn't show in the writing at all. I guess this book is written as a romance, given that in my limited experience of them, the eventual outcome being obvious hasn't been considered a huge drawback. Whereas most adventure stories try not to blatantly telegraph the outcome immediately.

The female lead falls for the titular 'Deathmaker' almost instantly, presumably due to his manly physique, given that there is no other explanation of why she falls for a man she believes to be a deliberate mass murderer of her people (as opposed to an accidental one, in the most ridiculously naive way possible) until the final chapter or two. Trying to copy the US-USSR mutually assured destruction policy from the Cold War with a gas weapon rather than nukes fundamentally fails to understand the several orders of magnitude difference.

I won't be reading any more of this series as it has become apparent to me that if you're not here primarily for the romance, you'll be disappointed.

I sincerely hope that Ms Buroker's well of inspiration is deep. Set in the same world and with some of the same characters as her previous books, "Death Maker" is another wonderful adventure. Whilst no-one has ever really come close to Sicarius as my favourite Buroker character, the Death Maker of the title certainly gives chase and perhaps even gets close enough to start breathing down his neck. Well-paced, well-plotted and with a great cast of characters, this is a must for readers who love an enjoyable well-written story.

I bought this book for the amazing cover, falling in love with the male figure with the long braided hair...and the book didn't disappoint. Although not as great as other Buroker stories, Deathmaker had pirates, a floating pirate lair, air fights, mad scientists and a bit of romance- through more from the male hero's than the female perspective, which was odd. Overall, a dependable steam punk classic-Buroker action packed novel.

I thoroughly recommend this book...it is simply........great!!!

This one is full of pirates, flying machines, and a sharp-shootin' gal who who can skin your nose with a rock from a hundred yards away.

Set in a steampunk world complete with magic, war, adventure, plenty of escapes, and a good dollop of a fancy gooey concoction with remarkable metal-melting properties, it's brilliant stuff. I just loved it.

In fact, my traitorous heart even thinks it prefers this little number to Lindsay's Emperor's Edge series!!

How is that possible when I do love Amaranthe and Sicarius so much? (If you haven't read those books you are doing yourself a serious disservice, and I would suggest you rectify that oversight without further ado.)

But as much as I love A&S from Emperor's Edge, Cal and Tolemek from Deathmaker have absolutely stolen my heart.

Cal is the ultimate impetuous shoot-first-ask-questions-later heroine.

Tolemek - despite his dastardly nickname Deathmaker - is a smart, Captain Jack Sparrowish (Pirates of the Caribbean) hero with a penchant for making gooey substances (from snake and spider venom) with both deadly and benign properties.

The chemistry between these two sworn enemies is fun to read, although, unlike Balanced on a Blade's Edge (the first in this series) this is more of an adventure than a romance. For those who loved Balanced on a Blade's Edge, Ridge, Sardelle and Jaxi also appear in this one. That said, Cal and Tolemek are definitely the show-stealers.

As we can expect from Lindsay, the action is fast-paced and riddled with her usual witty dialogue. There is even an unexpected twist at the end to keep it from becoming predictable.

And . . . tara tara . . . no deluge scene! No water at all! To understand this reference see my Blade's Edge review.

We are introduced to one of Zirkanders pilot's in this series. With Zirkander and Sardelle appearing in the final act. Great new characters adding to the history and depth of this series and land. I'm thoroughly enjoying the series so far. Plot wise these are not the most complex but the characters are great. It reminds me more of David Eddings or David Gemmell's style of writing. Definitely recommend this for a fun, enjoyable read.

I’m a huge fan of Lindsay Buroker so when she offered me the chance to read this, I jumped at the chance.

It’s part two in her Dragon Blood series and takes place a little time after the first. This one is more like her Emperor’s Edge series with it being heavy on the action and light on the romance, though there is enough to make you happy. It’s more subtle than that of the first, which is what I really like about the authors books.

I grew to like Tolemek/the Deathmaker early on in this, despite him being one of the bad guys, and I think Cas had the same problem. He’s unlike the rest of the pirates she ends up meeting. Tolemek doesn’t like hurting women, unlike some of the others, and over time he softens towards Cas and she gets under his skin. It was all rather sweet reading.

If you’re a fan of the author then you need to read this. If you’ve never read anything by her, why not?
