Review: Dark Currents by Lindsay Buroker

Dark Currents (The Emperor's Edge, #2)
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read the 2nd and 3rd book so fast that I finished each one before I could even think to write a review.

In Dark Currents Amaranthe and the gang go on another adventure, this time up north into some mountains to get to the bottom of who's poisoning the city's water supply. With each book Lindsay delves a little deeper into each of the characters. They're as funny as always, as quirky as always, and the book is filled with jokes that actually tickled my dark, cynical humour.
"Amaranthe's birthday is next week and, with our limited funds, I didn't think I'd be able to find her a gift."

"So, you're getting her...dead bodies?"

"Perfect, don't you think?" Books smiled.

"Most women like jewelry and flowers."

"Do you honestly believe she would prefer jewelry over a mystery to solve?"

Maldynado jiggled the key fob thoughtfully, then nodded toward the bodies. "Can we say one is from me?"
 Aww, isn't that sweet of them?

A lot of you are probably wondering how the relationship between Amaranthe will progress... Let me give you a hint.

Slowly and maturely.

It's very rare that I find a book where the relationships actually feel real, where the two MCs don't throw themselves at each other.

After reading the first three books, I can tell you that if you like detective novels... You will probably like this. Each books kind of feels like a little adventure, with a new mystery to solve with the gang.
