Deathmaker (Dragon Blood, Book 2) by Lindsay Buroker

When Lieutenant Caslin Ahn joined Wolf Squadron, she was prepared for the reality that she might one day be killed in the line of duty. She was less prepared for being shot down, assumed dead by her own people, and dragged off to the Cofah Empire as a prisoner of war. As if being thrust into a dungeon and interrogated wasn't bad enough, the sadistic commandant decides to give her a cellmate: the notorious pirate Deathmaker. Given the crimes he's committed against Iskandia, Cas owes it to her people to try and kill him.

Part warrior and part scientist, Tolemek "Deathmaker" Targoson has not only slain thousands with his deadly concoctions, but he has a special loathing for Iskandian pilots. It was Ahn's commander, Colonel Zirkander, who ruined his military career, forcing him to leave his country in shame and join a pirate organization. Years later, he uses his dreadful reputation like a shield to keep people away; all he wants is to be left alone to work in his laboratory. But when fate lands him in a cell with Zirkander's protégé, he sees a chance for revenge. Why kill the lieutenant when he can use her to get to his old nemesis?

There's just one problem: it's hard to plot against your enemies when you're in prison with them. Cas and Tolemek will have to work together if they hope to escape the Cofah dungeon. In the process, they may find that neither is what the other expects, and that they have far greater problems to worry about than ensnaring each other...

Deathmaker is a full-length 85,000-word novel. It is set after the events in Balanced on the Blade's Edge, but it can be enjoyed even if you haven't read the first book.

4,5 stars for another great book in this series Lindsay Buroker delivers again an engaging story in an interesting world. the characters were perfectly done as always and the storyline was more than fascinating. the saying, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is very true for this book and it takes it a little further. Cas Ahn is a warriour through and through but also smart, witty, loyal She also makes her mistakes along the way but never gives up no matter the odds against her, which makes her even more amazing as a character. Tolemek is a genius and most definitely a survivor - he is used to treachery all around him, and he is an enigma. we learn a lot about him along the way, but I am sure there are even more secrets to learn Lindsay Buroker gives us with these two characters not only fabulous leads but also a sizzling romantic tension, a lot of action and great storyline. I absolutely loved Cas and Tolemek and was really glad to see Ridge and Sardelle again! Can't wait to read the next book

Even better than the first book in this series. I have enjoyed all of this author's books, and this series is no exception. Great characters, great world-building, fast pace, plenty of humor. Just what I like in a fantasy adventure. Couldn't put it down.

I think I might have a new Favorite Buroker couple... Ok, I love them all but there is such amazing chemistry between Lieutenant Caslin Ahn and Tolemek “Deathmaker”.  You know the saying, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”...well lets take that a little further... Buroker gives two enemies, brings and a third and gives us a sizzling romantic tension and OMG, what a storyline.  Ahn is amazing! Strong, Smart, Sexy, a warrior that is not cowed even with the odds against her. Tolemek is a genius and most definitely a survivor, even with treachery surrounding him. Fabulous lead characters!!! Steampunk gadgets, technically advanced ancient civilizations, past character interaction, I was in heaven. I can only imagine where the Dragon Blood series will take us next.
