Publisher's Summary

The emperor has been ousted from the throne, his bloodline is in question, and war is descending on the capital. Forge, the nefarious business coalition that has been manipulating the political situation from the beginning, has the ultimate weapon at its disposal.

If it was difficult for a small team of outlaws - or, as Amaranthe has decided they should now be called, rebels - to make a difference before, it's a monumental task now. 

If she's to return idealistic young Sespian to the throne, earn the exoneration she's sought for so long, and help her closest ally win the respect of the son who detests him, she'll have to employ an unprecedented new scheme, preferably without destroying the city - or herself - in the process.

Lindsay Buroker's books are the best.

This is part one of Forged in Blood and Book 6 of Lindsay Buroker's Emperor's Edge series. I read the book and loved it so much I had to buy the audio version. Lindsay Buroker never fails-whether she's writing fantasy, science fiction, mysteries, or steampunk. This steampunk series has a great group of characters who display varying degrees of hero qualities in pursuit of honor, statues and the perfect hat. Add non-stop action, snarkiness in spades and a touch of romance rounds out this great addition to the Emperor's Edge series.

What a Cliffhanger!

I was so excited when this audio book finally became available. I love this story, the plot, the characters, and the personality. This is Lindsay Buroker's first fantasy series, and it's fantastic! The main problem was waiting for the audio book to come out! However, she informed me she was waiting to be able to release Forged in Blood I & II close to the same time because of a huge cliffhanger. I thought, whatever, just release them, I'm ready to finish this series!

Well, she wasn't wrong. I got to the end and BAM! What a cliffhanger. I held my fist in the air and shook it!

This follows Amaranthe and Sicarius as well as the rest of the team. It digs deeper into Sicarius and his thoughts, which is a nice touch, with him being emotionless the entire time, it's nice to get a peak into his mind. The rest of the characters are brilliant as ever, and the team does all they can to infiltrate the city to allow the emperor to reclaim the throne! But it's not as easy as that. Everyone is trying to get the throne now, and no one knows who to trust.

This reminds me a bit of Wheel of Time as they try and conquer the White Tower, but this is more in the outskirts of the city. However, there were a few parallels that were nice.

I love the series, and can't wait to finish it! The narrator for the audio book does a fantastic job!

Amaranth and Sicarius are back in stumps

Waited seems like forever for this to come out. Love this series. I have listened to the first 5 books and 5.5 seems like 20 times already. Its like listening to an old friend whose adventures are sad / funny and captivating. Can not wait for Part 2:)

I love this series!!!

Lindsay Buroker is an outstanding storyteller. With a profound richness to her character building and world creation, I have loved all of her books. The only negative thing is waiting for the audiobook releases...
