Introducing…

The Smuggler: By day, Aristide Makricosta is the emcee for Amberlough City’s top nightclub. By night, he moves drugs and refugees under the noses of crooked cops.

The Spy: Covert agent Cyril DePaul thinks he’s good at keeping secrets, but after a disastrous mission abroad, he makes a dangerous choice to protect himself…and hopefully Aristide too.

The Dancer: Streetwise Cordelia Lehane, burlesque performer at the Bumble Bee Cabaret and Aristide’s runner, could be the key to Cyril’s plans—if she can be trusted.

As the twinkling marquees lights yield to the rising flames of a fascist revolution, these three will struggle to survive using whatever means — and people — necessary. Including each other.

I'm not sure what I expected, but what I got ended up being interesting and thought-provoking, especially in this day and age.Amberlough is a fictional province in a fictional country called Gedda. A double-agent sacrifices all his ide...

3.5 Review: Amberlough
The second book I've read this year about a fascist regime taking over, but this time from the point of view of characters better in the know, a smuggler and a spy. Well written and interesting characters. Also some great sex scenes. I think this may just not be my subgenre.

4.0 Amberlough
I'll admit, the book hangs out on the lower eschelons of my 4 star, but I don't dislike it enough for a mere "it was alright". It was a good book, containing things that I look for in most modern fiction - diversity on just about every level, lack of needless rape scenes, etc.Initially what threw me...
