Publisher's Summary

Amaranthe Lokdon survives her reckless plan to destroy the enemy’s weapon-filled super aircraft, only to learn that thousands of people perished when it crash-landed. Half of her team is missing or dead. Meanwhile, the fighting in the capital has escalated, the Imperial Barracks have been taken by a pretender, and a deadly new danger threatens the populace.

Amaranthe’s hopes of returning Emperor Sespian to the throne and bringing peace to the empire are dwindling by the hour. To make matters worse, her strongest ally - and closest friend - has been captured and is under a powerful wizard’s control. If she can’t figure out a way to free Sicarius, he may kill them all when they meet next.

Solstice Day Gifts Review

I’ve already reviewed Forged in Blood II, but I couldn’t find a place to review the novella that follows this book, since it’s not available here. I want Lindsey to know how delightfully sweet and fun Solstice Day Gifts is. I especially enjoyed the adventures Sicarius had at the post office and the heartwarming gift he made for Amaranthe. Such a sweet new beginning for their future adventures together. Thank you for writing and sharing the story.

Is it really over? =(

Another brilliant tale in this series! Sircaris isn't himself, but Amarenthe doesn't give up! She does everything she can to bring him back. She finds unlikely allies (what else is new for her?), and with the help of her friends, and her really bad, or good, depending how you look at it, organization skills to develop plans to not only overthrow the villains, but to help put the emperor back on the throne. This is promised to be the last audio book in the series, even though there are a few more books in the series, they're not part of the main plot that this book concludes. I'm sad about that, as I'm an audio person, but I've downloaded the other three or so books in this series to my Kobo, and plan to read them, imagining the brilliant voices I've heard by the two narrators of this series.

Sigh

Oh I just love this whole series. It doesn't matter if it has flaws. It teases, entertains, mystifies and delights. Listened at 1.15x speed.

Self sacrifice

The team once again fights for their beliefs in what is right. Even to sacrifice one's life for a son not of their blood.

Wow… just wow! Keep em coming!!

What a ride and with an amazing combination of continuous in-depth and subtle character growth, perfectly interwoven with a broad range of interpersonal relationships that hit on a so many different types and levels of relationship across the spectrum in this series!!!

I need this series to continue on for a lot longer with how invested this group of characters gets you right from the start and never let’s you go!

5 stars aren’t enough

A wonderful entertaining story/series. I tried to read other books that had dropped Into my library but I kept wanting to know what Amaranthe her crew were up against. I look forward to the remaining books to come out in Audible. Vivienne Leheny was outstanding.

!

Great story. I was unable to put down the series! But why aren't books 8 and 9 offered by Audible?! I am dying to finish the series but need them on Audible since my eyes aren't good enough to read!

great series can we have the last 2 books please

These last 2 stories have been full of excitement and drama, and complete the saga. But the temptation of 2 more written but not recorded makes the waiting difficult.

Winners and Losers

The Imperial Barracks have fallen.

Sicarius is captured and has his mind controlled by Kor Nas, a Nurian Practitioner. Amaranthe, Books and Akstyre are also captured by Lord Admiral Starcrest.

However, Amaranthe, not one to take things lying down, is soon free and on the hunt to free Sicarius and to recapture the Imperial Barracks, with the help of Lord Admiral Starcrest, but not everyone will survive.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Emeror's Edge and will be quite sad when it ends. However, as Audible is taking time to record the final two books, I guess it will be a while yet!
