    I wasn't sure what kind of book I was in the mood for and then I picked this one up. It totally hit the spot and now I have to read the whole series. I don't make up the rules. That's just how it works. So. Jev and Xenia. They're in very different places in their lives when they fir...

    The classic Buroker elements are here: banter; steam conveyances; political intrigue which the characters are not so much engaging in as victims of; two people who appear confident but are privately full of doubts, and who look set to have a slow-burn romance; magic, here a bit more fr...

    Good, but not quite amazing This book stands on its dialog more than anything else. The author does a great job with conversations and banter. The only reason I didn?t give it 5 stars was because it lacked an interesting deeper element of mystery or fascination that will thread th...

    Zenia Cham is an Inquisitor for the Water Temple. But even though her Dragon?s Tear amulet gives her the power to compel people to obey her, she may have bitten off more than she can chew with Jev Darrow. The former solider has just returned from a decade at war, and is said to have ...

    Hurrah for a new fantasy series from Lindsay Buroker. Zyndar Jevlain Dharrow has been at war for ten years and is happy to finally arrive home. All is not what he expected on arrival, as his comrade, young Second Lieutenant Targyon is declared king when they reach land and Inquisitor Z...

    The mystery was good. The pacing was good. My overall disappointment with the story is I don?t like my fantasy campy. Tapestries of dragons taking a bubble bath is campy. Characters talking about beach vacations and Aloe Vera rub downs when the story is based in an epic fantasy world...

    After a decade away at war, Jev Dharrow wants nothing more than to put down his sword, get suitably drunk, and take it easy for a while. Being arrested by an inquisitor for supposedly stealing an artifact he's never even heard of years ago the second he steps off the ship definitely wa...

    Mini-Review: The story has some cool things like a unicorn healer and an off-kilter grandmother that likes to bake things. I like Jev & his two buddies. Zenia did not grow on me at all. Rhi, the pious monk, was the best of them all. She's a side character. The unicorn is mention...

    Fun little read with elves and dwarves to make it more interesting. I liked the journey and would definitely come back for more. The banter between the characters is always enjoyable in all of Ms. Buroker's books and I definitely want to see how she proceeds with Zenia and Jev's relati...

    Free Fantasy Stuff (FFS?) from The Emperor's Edge's mommy, Lindsay Buroker? Yes, purlease. Okay, so some people shelved the book as 'romance,' but I'm pretty sure that's a mistake on their part. Besides, it's not like the blurb mentions the MC's past lurve life, his meeting a beautif...

    Jev Darrow returns from a decade fighting the elves in a war he doesn't believe in. He returns home to find his bookish Lieutenant has been elevated to King after the death of the previous King and all three of his sons from a mysterious blood disorder. No sooner does Jev disembark the...

    It took some time for me to get into this story - the start was a tad confusing and there were a few too many characters thrown in all at the same time, but I persevered. It took some time, as well. to get to the crux of the story, but by then I was enjoying the verbal interaction and...

    I always enjoy LB's fun plots and characters. 3-point-something stars, rounded up because it was a treat to look forward to, reading each chapter or two as LB posted them on her website. However, that does make it difficult to fully evaluate the flow, etcetera. I bought the polished Ki...

    Started a little slow. Took a bit to get into it. Maybe a little too romance heavy for a first book in a series such as this. We'll see if she pulls back a tad in the next book, which I am inclined to read as this had a few interesting elements, namely a mysterious outcast elf who is d...

    I really enjoyed this story. I read it in one sitting from the authors webpage. I really liked the main characters (not just Jev and Zenia, but their 3 friends as well) and the banter they had going on. The world-building was also interesting and I would really like to see more of it. ...

    Unsurprisingly - as I've come to expect from every book Lindsay Buroker writes - this tale is engrossing, fast-paced, and extremely entertaining to read. There's a ton of humor in the dialogue, quirky characters, a bit of magic, and a diverse cast of characters (elves and dwarves). ...

    A fun, lighthearted Epic Fantasy Romance read! This is the first book I've picked up by Lindsay Buroker. I really enjoyed her fluid, fast-paced writing style and the humor that's laced through the book. The main characters, Jev and Zenia are both fun, flawed and interesting. They ke...

    A fun fun start of a new series. Loved the world, loved the plot, loved the hero from the start. Heroine took me a while to warm up to but I did eventually and by the end couldn't wait to read more of the series and enjoy the hint of romance and lots of adventure. If you know me, yo...

    I have no idea if I liked this book or not. It was interesting, about a relic that was stolen and all that happened to find it. I liked Jev and Zenia but not as a couple. I didn?t feel any kind of chemistry at all between them. So, if the author was trying to write a romance...

    (No spoilers.) Having read and massively enjoyed the author's Emperor's Edge series, I had high hopes of enjoying this series too. Sadly for me it falls short of the wonderfully complicated and detailed world created in the Edge series. The plot was long drawn out for what was ultimat...

    It?s a wonderful thing when a favorite author comes out with a new series, and since Lindsay Buroker is at the top of my favorite author list I was totally delighted to grab Eye of Truth, the first in her new Agents of the Crown series. Not surprisingly, it was superb. Part detective...

    Some books are like a delicious piece of fruit: unadorned, unembellished quality. Others are like a banana split?still fruit-centric, but with some ice cream and toppings, there to set off the banana?s flavor, or sometimes to hide a bland banana. Then there are smoothie books, the ...

    Hmm. I liked the premise, however the execution was slow. There was no chemistry between the main characters, Zenia was a hypocrite spouting one thing and acting another. Jev didn't end up doing much so I couldn't connect with him. I had high hopes for this series and I don't think I'l...

    Very enjoyable A new series in a new universe equals an enjoyable read. The story begins at the end of a long, and most likely I'll-advised, war. The soldiers are returning home to discover what remains the same and what has changed in their homeland while they were away. It seems p...
