Evie Black and her demon imp partner, Cass, are two of the most fearsome supernatural bounty hunters on the West Coast. After finding the bottom of a bottle of tequila, Evie breaks the one rule she knows better than to ignore: Never hook up with a werewolf. Lara has only one thought for her husband on their wedding day: I will bring your kingdom to its knees.
A princess trained from childhood to be a lethal spy, Lara knows that the Bridge Kingdom represents both legendary evil - and legendary promise. So when she is sent as a bride under the guise of fulfilling a treaty of peace, Lara is prepared to do whatever it takes When you've been accused of kidnapping an emperor, and every enforcer in the city wants your head, it's hard to prove yourself an honorable person and even harder to earn an imperial pardon. That doesn't keep Amaranthe Lokdon and her team of outlaws from trying.
When athletes start disappearing from the Imperial Games, they may finally have an opportunity to show the emperor that they're on his side. If she and her comrades can get to the bottom of such a public mystery, they're sure to get the credit. But plans go awry when Amaranthe's own men start plotting against each other, the new ally she'd hoped to acquire tries to turn her in, and her best fighter-and closest friend-disappears.
Maybe getting involved wasn't such a good idea after all I have been enjoying the Emperor's Edge Ms Buroker, unlike many of today's "writers" who write episodic books with no ending in the Who Shot JR Style, knows how to write a compelling story. Each book has a beginning, Main Story Line and Ending. I enjoy the way Ms Buroker develops the characters in the series.
She builds a little in each book to expand the personality of the character. Lucky for me there are numerous books in tjis series! Other series are equally enjoyable! I love Lindsay Buroker's adventures, and I can always count on a good, entertaining ride. I didn't give this book five stars only because it took so long to really draw me in, and I could have put the book down a few times. I did, in fact. I also think some of the repartee took away from the story, didn't add anything new, and slowed things down too much.
I read part of it and listened to the audio as well.

I really dislike the way the audio narrator does the Maldynado voice. It's way too pretentious. I found myself making faces every time I heard it. Not the good faces. The rest of it, though, was very well done. I loved the first books in the series and have some other Buroker novels I can't wait to get into.
Deadly Games: The Emperor's Edge, Book 3 (Unabridged)
She's definitely one of my favorite authors. Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? No, not at all. She made the heroine Amaranthe a snot and Maldynado sound very gay, which not have been a problem if he had been. That's all the farther I listened, just a few pages because I couldn't stand it. She was ruining a good story.

Any additional comments? This is a great book. Save yourself the trouble and don't get 'professional' narration. I recently finished reading the kindle versions of book 1 and 2 — As I started book 3 I got sick. I was pleased to see the audio version of the book available at a reduced cost because I owned the kindle version already.
The first 3 books in this series are entertaining with an interesting world setting that mixes sci fi, steam punk and mystery together to make a wonderfully enjoyable read. As things are likely to do, matters go from bad to worse before everything works out in the end. I must say the last chap is my fav — the entire garden scene is breath taking, such a tease but it will make me buy the next book to see what happens next. Regarding the Narrator - I wasn't sure I was going to like Starla Huchton's reading of the story - mainly because I had voices in my head already for the characters from reading the e-versions of the first two books, but it didn't take long for me to really enjoy listening to Starla's work.
The over arcing story progresses nicely. The characters grow and evolve. A nice revelation is made. Get this book. I only wish more of this authors' books were on Audible. Great steampunk cross fantasy author. All the books I've listened to so far have left me wanting more.
My only complaint is that the few final books in this series are not on Audible, therefore to finish the story you need to buy the books from Amazon. Amaranthe discovers an old enemy is involved. Chapter 9: Basilard and Sicarius are both missing.
