    A quick read with Amaranthe and Sicarius

    The Assassin's Curse by Lindsay Buroker is a short story set in the world of her Emperor's Edge series. This story only features Amaranthe and Sicarius out of the team and I missed the other characters a bit myself. This is a very quick read, but if you are a fan of the series like I am you look forward to everything you can get your hands on. The story follows a similar theme to the rest of the books with Amaranthe spotting something out of the ordinary and wanting to investigate to hopefully get some positive attention and get her team cleared of all crimes.

    This story starts with the Sicarius and Amaranthe doing some training in the lake when they spot a lot of smoke in the air. They find an army transport that has been looted of new experimental weaponry and decide to check a nearby island for the thieves. Unfortunately that island is supposed to be cursed to help people who are looking to overthrow the empire.

    As with all of Lindsay's work this is written using her wonderful characters and a great skill with description. A must have for fans of the series.

    It was too short, but I loved it.

    As usual Lindsay takes us on GREAT adventure with another page turner of a tale.

    Enjoy this series.

    I really enjoy this series. Very steam punk with romantic tension. I prefer her longer books to her short stories, but she is an wonderful writer.
