A viral Book Dark Currents ***½I’m kind of puzzled as to why Lindsay Buroker’s The Emperor’s Edge books are so fun, readable, and compelling... but they are. Buroker’s books are not great fantasy. In fact, her world building is quite shoddy. I have no true visual of the city or it's people. The technology level is sketchy at best with her heroes driving lorries and using rifles/pistols, yet still carrying antiquated weapons like swords. The rules for magic are a mystery. The political strata is kind of vague and the neighboring countries are too much alike, blurring together. Obviously Buroker is just making stuff up as she goes along, creating a technological or magical ‘doodad’ (as Amaranthe calls them) as she needs them, or creating a new magical character or power when it suits her. Consequently her world doesn’t always fit together or make sense. I will always yank a star for this. For one thing, creative world building is one of the reasons I seek out fantasy/steampunk. Another reason is without proper limits or rules, the action scenes just aren’t suspenseful. How can you fear for the hero when you know that the author will just pull another ‘magical’ rabbit out of their hat, or have an implausible escape whenever they need to get the hero out of a bad situation? It’s sloppy. The easy way out, and Buroker does this a lot. I wanted to skim over her action scenes, when they should have been exciting and compelling. Without boundaries, there’s no real risk, and the action is tedious to read. So why am I eagerly awaiting the next book?It’s the characters. They’re fun. I’m fond of them. Yes Buroker uses archetypes, but so do comic books. (And personally… I think some of the most creative and complex characters have come from graphic novels. As if being limited to a template makes writers go to greater lengths to give their characters depth.) But anyway, I’m intrigued and amused by Amaranthe’s motley little group. They bicker and fight. They tease each other. There’s a feeling of mystery and untold stories with each and every one of them. That’s where the suspense for The Emperor’s Edge books come from…this desire to know more about the characters. I want to see what happens to them. I’m dying to learn their secrets and see if they find happiness and romance. Yes, they tend to throw cheesy one-liners at each other (which make me groan) but I’m willing to ignore that. So while this series is far from great literature, I’ve been sucked in by the compelling characters and will definitely be reading book 3. This was a buddy read with Jeannette and she wrote an excellent review for this. review
Dark current physics In physics and in electronic engineering, dark current is the relatively small electric current that flows through photosensitive devices such as a photomultiplier tube, photodiode, or charge coupled device even when no photons are entering the device it consists of the charges generated in the detector when no outside radiation is entering the detector.
