Supported by her loyal fans and readers, after a few years Buroker was able to make a living exclusively as a self published novelist.
She is a prime example of how in the twenty first century more and more authors turned to self publishing as a way of getting their names known and releasing themselves from what they see as the trammels of traditional publishing. This is the series that really made her name and started to establish her writing career, and so we will look at a couple of early books from that series more closely below. In this novel, readers are introduced to the character of Amaranth Lokdon.
Lokdon is a law enforcer and she is a fearsome adversary to all of the lawbreakers in her vicinity. However, soon a series of crimes start to occur that threaten to challenge her abilities as a lawmaker. Dead bodies begin to wash up on the shores of the nearby river and it falls to Lokdon to solve the mystery before more killings happen.
In addition, Lokdon finds out that the most infamous assassin the realm is in town. His name is Sicarius. Lokdon knows that Sicarius must be somehow involved in the killings, arson attacks and other crimes that are occurring in the empire.
However, she knows that facing up to this assassin is very dangerous. Who will make the first move? Lokdon is very handy with a blade, but this is a terrifying adversary.

Readers will be gripped as Lokdon has to solve the mysteries and end the chaos that threatens to engulf her city. What happens next is very unexpected: the pair form an unlikely alliance in order to thwart the criminals and — ultimately — to save the life of the Emperor himself. And, by the end of the novel, readers will be hungry for the next novel in the series. Luckily, as mentioned above, Buroker wrote had already written the second novel in the series by the time that she published the first one. And so, they did not need to wait at all to find out what happened next.
In this novel, we once again follow the fortunes of the powerful and clever heroine Lokdon. When this novel opens, Lokdon and Sicarius are established as a team, ready to solve more crimes.
However, far from being recognized as heroes thanks to their bold actions as depicted in the first novel in the series, Lokdon and Sicarius are in fact on the run. This is because they have been blamed for the actions of the kidnappers and criminals. So, Lokdon and Sicarius need to clear their name as urgently as possible. However, their opportunity to prove what loyal citizens they are arrives.
Corpses begin appearing in the aqueducts of the city and Lokdon and Sicarius begin to get to work solving the mystery. However, they have several foes to face down before they can clear their names.
These mechanisms are just one example of the steampunk feel of the novel. If you see one missing just send me an e-mail below. Book s.
