A really good way to lose a day...

A friend of mine, Scott, suggested this book to me, so I decided to take him up on it.

It's very well written, colorfully descriptive, and has very believable characters.

This story follows a female enforcer, Amaranthe. Without giving out spoilers, she's tasked with seducing and elimintating the kingdom's deadliest assassin, Sicarius. However, when she's framed for a crime and thrown in prison, she escapes captivity and joins forces with the assassin and several others to try and save the emperor's life.

The writing was smooth, the action flowed beautifully, and the scenes were wonderfully described in detail. The dialogue had me laughing out loud several times. I did enjoy Amaranthe's dilemma in having an assassin as an accomplish as they clearly do not see eye to eye on a great many things.

I do see that the second book has been released by this author. I'll be picking this up this weekened and can be certain that'll I'll gladly lose another day immersed in these worlds.

Great job, Ms. Buroker!
