Emperor’s Edge Universe [Fantasy Books]

Update: this page hasn’t been updated in a while — please check out my list of fantasy novels for a complete list of what’s out and the reading order. Thank you!

Someone found my site by typing in my name + Emperor’s Edge Universe, and I thought that was the coolest thing. Me, with a universe! So far it’s just two books and a couple of short stories, but I have a six-book series in mind, so I guess it’s never too early to create a web page for everything.

Emperor's Edge Fantasy Book Cover

Here’s what’s out there so far:

The Emperor’s Edge — The novel that starts it all! Just how did Amaranthe recruit that deadly assassin Sicarius to her team? And what was Maldynado wearing the first time she met him? These and other keep-you-up-late-at-night questions answered in the first adventure. Available for $0.99 at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, & Smashwords

Dark Currents — Book 2. When Amaranthe’s team discovers mutilated bodies in the city aqueducts and a mysterious illness incapacitates thousands of citizens, she and Sicarius see an opportunity to solve the mystery and prove their loyalty. But they’ll have to defeat vengeful shamans, man-eating predators, and deadly mechanical constructs, all while dodging imperial soldiers who would rather kill them than accept their help. Available for $3.99 at  Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.

Deadly Games — Book 3. When you’ve been accused of kidnapping an emperor, and every enforcer in the city wants your head, it’s hard to prove yourself an honorable person and even harder to earn an imperial pardon.

That doesn’t keep Amaranthe Lokdon and her team of outlaws from trying. When athletes start disappearing from the Imperial Games, they may finally have an opportunity to show the emperor that they’re on his side. If she and her comrades can get to the bottom of such a public mystery, they’re sure to get the credit.

But plans go awry when Amaranthe’s own men start plotting against each other, the new ally she’d hoped to acquire tries to turn her in, and her best fighter—and closest friend—disappears.

Maybe getting involved wasn’t such a good idea after all…

Ice Cracker II — A short story with Sicarius and Amaranthe. Available for free at Smashwords & Barnes & Noble.

Ice Cracker II (and other stories) — Includes the last short story and two more, one with Amaranthe and Sicarius and one where Books and Amaranthe are off investigating a haunted distillery together! Available for $0.99 at Amazon and Smashwords.

Ice Cracker II Fantasy Ebook Short Story Cover

Everything is in ebook form right now, but I’ll be looking into creating print editions eventually.

Thanks for your interest!

Where can I find the audiobooks for Emperor’s books4-6?

Hi Susan, I’m having to look for a new narrator because Starla’s gotten so busy, so it’ll be a bit of a delay, but once things get going, I hope we can get them out fairly quickly.

Greetings, I’v Listened To The 3 Audio books And I’v Really Enjoyed Them. I’m A little Disappointed To Hear Starla Huchton Won’t Be Finishing The Series She Had A Lovely Voice For Your Book But I’m Sure You Will Find Some One Great. Keep Up The Good Work, And I’m Watching For More ;)

Thanks for listening, Cadarn. Yes, it’s tough keeping these narrators around for an entire 7-book series. They run off and get lives or something. :D

As a hoplessly addicted fan, I need to know how a non kindle user can get her hands on books 4-7. The best days I’ve ever had at work was the 4 days of giggling aloud, cringing, and holding my breath while listening to books 1-3 in the audio format (my co-works think I’ve lost my mind). Love the work and I feel like a part of me is missing without knowing what’s going to happen next I’m totally invested in Amaranth…

Hi Holly,

Sorry it’s taking a while to get the rest of the audiobooks out there (I had to switch narrators). For paperbacks, you can pick them up at Amazon or Barnes & Noble. 4 & 5 are out, and 6 & 7 should be available in about a week or so. I just approved the proofs. :)

Thanks for following along!

Kind of sad to hear that you have to change narrators. I’ve so enjoyed the books so far…
I’m right there will Holly, making faces, scowling, arching eyebrows and chuckling out loud while listening at work, and while commuting to and from work.
I don’t often have the time to sit and read (that’s a true luxury) so good audio books are a real treasure, especially when I’m drawn into acting out the facial expressions. (I don’t care if my co-workers think I’m goofy)
Do you have a time line on when the rest of the audio books will be out? (I’m asking because I want to know if I should start a different ‘series’ of audio books, or just a single book)

Hi Tammy,

Thanks for listening! It’s going to be a while, I’m afraid, especially to get the whole series out there. I probably need to hire an assistant to handle this stuff, since I always tend to focus on writing new things rather than past projects!

It would be really cool if you would post extras on the series-like what sicarius has them doing in the morning for exercise, or what his diet actually consists of (not just what amaranthe remembers), what maldynado’s family tree is. or how to make sicarius’s travel bars, I dunno something fun, or short segments in other characters POV’s

Also-I think Laurence Fox is exactly what I picture sicarius to be-but with Sebastian Michaelis (Black Butler) attitude!

Sorry-Keep remembering stuff I wated to say. I am also picturing Sicarius’s knife looking like a Scimtar- dunno why. Are these acceotable assumptions? If they aren’t I would like to fix it so I can visualize them properly
