Imperial law enforcer Amaranthe Lokdon is good at her job: she can deter thieves and pacify thugs, if not with a blade, then by toppling an eight-foot pile of coffee canisters onto their heads. But when ravaged bodies show up on the waterfront, an arson covers up human sacrifices, and a powerful business coalition plots to kill the emperor, she feels a tad overwhelmed. Worse, Sicarius, the empire's most notorious assassin, is in town. He's tied in with the chaos somehow, but Amaranthe would be a fool to cross his path. Unfortunately, her superiors order her to hunt him down. Either they have an unprecedented belief in her skills... or someone wants her dead.

I did a fairly thorough sweep of most of those books earlier this year, but this was allowed to stay. It had good reviews and so...
I've grown bore with this book. There wasn't anything particularly rage inducing about it, however after 22% it became painfully obvious to me that the author was always manipulating the story to suit Amaranthe. She is supposed to be this smart female character but she comes across as a little girl ...
This was an interesting one. I saw a recommendation of it on another site and I figured I would give it a shot....especially since it was free. The good: 1. The world created was very interesting: a steampunk setting in an aging old warrior Empire, where the elite are separated into castes, and ...
