Imperial law enforcer Amaranthe Lokdon is good at her job: she can deter thieves and pacify thugs, if not with a blade, then by toppling an eight-foot pile of coffee canisters onto their heads. But when ravaged bodies show up on the waterfront, an arson covers up human sacrifices, and a powerful business coalition plots to kill the emperor, she feels a tad overwhelmed.

Worse, Sicarius, the empire's most notorious assassin, is in town. He's tied in with the chaos somehow, but Amaranthe would be a fool to cross his path. Unfortunately, her superiors order her to hunt him down. Either they have an unprecedented belief in her skills... or someone wants her dead.

Besides stating that atheism is a relegion, this is brilliant.

I think he better change that tone real quick before he find himself being one of those "gory bodies"

Yea, so descriptions and dialogue are on point. Great job. I'm adding to my library!

I just started to write a new story called The Siren Lake and it would mean the world to me to get some feedback on my writing!

"Amaranthe wanted to skewer something."
                              Bad time, Wholt. Go back inside.

No wonder Amaranthe's friend was investigating "suspicious activity" here...
