Above Angelina's Tavern in down-and-dirty Neceda you'll find the office of Eddie LaCrosse, a freelance sword jockey who, for twenty-five gold pieces a day, will take on any task short of murder for hire.

Eddie isn't the kind of guy to just let something like this pass. But who killed Laura Lesperitt? Eddie's quest for payback leads him to a tangled mystery involving a notorious crime lord, a backwoods dragon cult, royal scandals, and a duplicitous femme fatale who has trouble keeping her clothes on. As bodies pile up, attracting the unwelcome attention of the king's guards, Eddie must use all his wits if he hopes to survive….

I started reading this series out of order (began with He Drank, and Saw the Spider: An Eddie LaCrosse Novel which was released in January 2014) and was so impressed I wanted to begin with the first novel, The Sword-Edged Blonde: An Eddie LaCrosse Novel (Eddie LaCrosse Novels). From there it was a no-brainer for me to order the other books. This one is the second in the series and was a tiny let-down for me, teetering on the edge between three and four stars. Because Bledsoe was able to make me want to finish the book I decided to go with the four stars. Granted, the books are fantasy so I shouldn't be surprised when I encounter fantasy within the pages, but the dragon myth focus in this one didn't seem as interesting or even entertaining as the two previous novels I've read. What I did like was the development in Eddie's character. The growth in his relationship with Liz didn't take the focus off the "sword-jockey" aspect, which is what I read these books for, but it came a little too close for comfort at times. I'm not looking for a fantasy romance novel so I prefer having more sword and dagger fight scenes than bedroom action scenes. This one came a-l-m-o-s-t too close to having the bedroom take up too much of the story. I'm really hoping that will take up less attention now that Liz and Eddie are very firmly established as a loving couple.

This book has quite a long excerpt from Wake of the Bloody Angel (Eddie Lacrosse) in it so now I'm all ready to begin the next adventure.

I'm not sure how Alex Bledsoe can take all the sarcasm and exhaustion of a classic gumshoe novel and wrap it around a fantasy world, be he does. It's fun, funny, stylish, and completely unique. Eddie isn't a superhero, he doesn't have magic, he has a few blades he knows how to use and a brain he kind of knows how to use. He makes a hero that fits real situations, he tries heads, gets hit in the head too much to be healthy, and gets the job done. It's a great read.

7 disc's with no jumps or skips.

The guy reading it though was extremely monotone. The lack of voice inflection really got to me.

Alex Bledsoe has a way of appealing to my "teenage male" within with his very humorous, tough-but-level-headed, "know when to hold'em/know when to fold'em" protagonist Eddie LaCrosse. A very different feel from his Tufa novels but fun and fast-paced. Enjoyed the ride!

I was hooked right from the start with this book. I had read the first in the series and enjoyed it and I felt this one was even better. The author, Alex Bledsoe, keeps the pace moving and keeps you guessing. Even if you are not a fantasy-fan you will appreciate how Bledsoe's characters use current vernacular in a fantasy setting. It works extremely well here. Highly recommended.

One of Bledsoe's better entries in the Eddie LaCrosse series, with interesting characters, an engaging central mystery, and well-written action to carry the reader through a relatively short book. Just the right kind of book for a long plane ride, or some kindle beach reading.

I am a new fan to the Eddie LaCrosse novels. I read the first one and then downloaded the other two on my kindle as soon as I finished. If you like fantasy and are looking for a fun read I highly recomend the Eddie LaCrosse novels
Just couldn't get into the Eddie Lacrosse novels. I know there are people who love them and I've read similar novels with off-beat characters and settings that are a mix of present and past but Eddie Lacrosse just doesn't do it for me.
