When you're an outlaw hoping for a pardon, and the emperor personally sends a note requesting that your team kidnap him, you make plans to comply, even if it'll involve infiltrating a train full of soldiers, bodyguards, and spies loyal to a nefarious business coalition that has numerous reasons to hate you.
Even if it means leaving the city right after you've uncovered a secret weapons shipment that might be meant to start a war.
Even if it's a trap....

I would absolutely recommend this audiobook, Lyndsay's ability to create a world full of action and humour with strong lead female characters and side characters that have depth enough you feel for them with every plot twist and turn definitely make this a must "read" book
Amaranthe is my favourite without a doubt her feisty, never say die attitude and sense of humour make me a true believer!
when I heard starla wasn't available to narrate this book my heart sank! she was absolutely outstanding in the first 3 books and I've abandoned other series that have swapped narrators mid series because I couldn't acclimatise to the new narrator.
so imagine my delight when I started to listen to Vivienne's performance, whilst there is a difference between the two narrators I didn't have that disconnect when hearing favourite characters talk I think Vivienne must have listened to starla's narration to match them up, not only that but the performance is outstanding so much so that within half an hour I was totally focused on the story rather than who was telling it and what if any differences there were. 10/10
there are many laugh out loud moments in the book as with most of Lyndsay's books and whilst there weren't tear inducing moments there are quite a few tender moments that tug at the heart strings!
this series isn't paid for by amazon or audible, it's paid for by the author out of her own pocket because the likes of me have pestered her for it, so why not give it a shot, I loved every minute of it and I'm sure I'm not alone
"I want the next one ... NOW NOW NOW"
I waited 3 years for this to show up in audio format, anywhere. I first bumped into The Emperor's Edge on Podiobooks 3+ years ago. The first 3 books are there. I have been waiting sense then for the next one to show up on Audible. When I finally get it, it sucks me in again and then ends in a cliff hanger. Grrrr. This is such a good tale. Please Audible and Ms. Buroker, don't make us wait to long for the rest of the series.
"WELL WORTH THE WAIT"
While the new narrator's voice, takes alittle getting used to, being able to listen to the continuation of one of my favorite series, makes it an easy adjustment. The fact that the narrator is an old favorite from a different series, by the same author, makes it that much more enjoyable. This narrative is from an awesome series, which if you haven't read, I'd HIGHLY recommend. Being able to listen to it, is just that much sweeter. I can't wait for book 5. ( Hint, hint)😄
"Great story with even better characters"
I love all things Lindsay Buroker and this this fourth installment of the EE series is no exception. Before starting this series I never thought of myself as a Sci-Fi / fantasy type reader. One day I was looking for something different and decided to start this series, and I've been hooked ever since.
The story is interesting and full of non-stop action and the characters are well developed.
"Love the series"
I loved the series, the story flows from book to book almost seamlessly. It was easy to become involved with the characters and want them to succeed. The book moves along at a good pace. I was disappointed with this one because the narrator was different but once I got used to the new voice, it was ok. She does a good job, but she has a very different voice so if you listen to them in order one after the other, it startles you when you start the 4th book. It ends at a cliffhanger so I came to get the next book only to find that it has not been recorded.
