    Banter, fun races, cool magic -- all the usual Buroker fun pieces. ...

    Once again Lindsay Buroker has started a new, character-driven, series set in a new world. There is a little more obvious world building than her other books but given this is the first book in a new world the extra focus is both understandable and appropriate. The plot revolves aroun...

    Book one in the Agents of the Crown series finds former soldier Jev Dharrow returning home after years abroad, only to be confronted by an Inquisitor who accuses him of theft. Affronted by the false accusation, he fully intends to accompany the lovely woman to her temple for questionin...

    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...

    This is the 15th book I have read by Lindsay Buroker and it is the first of a new series. Buroker is a entertaining storyteller and I have found myself to be engaged by each of her books. She has written fantasy, science fiction and steam punk fiction. I would label most of her novels ...

    New series - Jev is a nobleman returning to his home country after 10 years away at war. One of the men who served under his command in the war is now king (a surprise - the king and all 3 of his sons just died of a blood disease). Jev reaches the shore and is promptly arrested by Inqu...

    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...

    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...

    I received the audiobook for free as a Patreon supporter, but I would have purchased it if it wasn't a reward and my reviews are always honest. I also read the first 10 chapters on Lindsay's blog, but I think the audiobook brings the characters to life and I'd highly recommend "reading...

    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...

    A great start to a new fantasy series I really like these characters. Their character personalities are different from previous stories. While I enjoyed Sicarius and Amaranth; Leonidas and Alisa; and Thorian and Jelena, they were all a bit the same. So this has a detective search...

    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...

    Every time I have finished one of Lindsay Buroker's series, I have been left with a feeling that I wished it could have continued. Reading this book, I find that I am enjoying it even more than the last. Like her other books, the characters just seem to have such great chemistry. The i...

    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 quite enjoyed this book. I read it when it was posted on Buroker's webpage as a serial. I liked the characters and always enjoy the banter that Buroker is so deft at writing. I did feel that it could have been more developed--I sort of felt that she was under a time-crunch to write a...

    (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...

    "Boy, Can She Write" Ms Buroker hits her stride well with this new series, good characters, an interesting well thought out plot with several intricate mysteries (...the grandmother with a rifle in the magic cove) and dialogue that moves the story and character development expertly....

    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...

    Another good Lindsay Buroker series. My personal favorite is her dragon blood series but while waiting for the next book about my beloved pilot/sorceress couple Eye of truth and its sequel is an entertaining way to spend good reading time. The story isn't very original and the protagon...
