Overview

After surviving ancient booby traps, deadly puzzles, and torture-happy imperial marines, cryptanalyst Tikaya Komitopis can’t wait to return home, even if that means explaining to her family how she came to love Fleet Admiral Rias Starcrest, the empire’s most notorious commander and the man responsible for the decimation of her people during the war.

Tikaya and Rias believe they’ll have several calm weeks at sea to mull over the problem of irate citizens and horrified parents, but the ship they board is on the run. The captain has acquired a mysterious stolen artifact… and the owners want it back. When he learns of Tikaya’s background, he urges her to decode its secrets, implying her life—and everyone else’s—might be forfeit if she fails.

Engima is a 15,000-word short story set after the events in Encrypted.

    A fast, fun story to tide us over from _Encrypted_ to the soon-t

    A fast, fun story to tide us over from _Encrypted_ to the soon-to-be-forthcoming _Decrypted_. If you enjoyed Rias and Tikaya as much as I did you will enjoy this.

    Love these characters

    This is just a short 100 pages of Rias and Tikaya as they are traveling from the end of Encrypted to Decrypted.

    Futuristic and Archaic at the same time.

    The author has created a fascinating world that combines low and high technologies with magic. The action and thrills continue unabated from page 1 to the end.

    An excellent short story

    Discovering yet again that not everything is to be had through magic (or more properly, the 'mental science') Tikaya and Rias embark on an eventful next step of their journey returning to Tikaya's home.

    I've enjoyed everything I've read by this author, and this story

    I've enjoyed everything I've read by this author, and this story is a nice treat. It was nice to catch up with Tikaya and Rias, while waiting for their next adventure in Decrypted. It is set in the same universe and about 20 years before the Emperor's Edge series, which is excellent. If you haven't read that series yet, grab the first one and get started. You'll probably immediately buy all the other books like I did. Adventure, likeable characters, humor, and fun.
