Even the Steelflower can't kill every assassin in the city. Lili Saintcrow was born in New Mexico (which probably explains everything, given the nuclear testing) and spent her childhood bouncing around the world as a military brat. She fell in love with writing in second grade and has done it obsessively ever since. She currently resides in the rainy Pacific Northwest with her children, dogs, cat, and assorted other strays, including a metric ton of books holding her house together.

Kaia Steelflower has done quite well for herself, and she longs to retire as an innkeeper. Books related to Steelflower. Unfortunately, one night she picks the wrong pocket, and finds herself saddled with a barbarian, an elven princeling and his two hapless companions, a wharf-rat, and a lutebanging minstrel. And there's the little matter of an old friend calling in a debt of honor and blood-a debt Kaia can't refuse. Now a reluctant Kaia and her companions face a rebellious army, assassins, more assassins, and oh yes, the assassins.

The first book of the Steelflower Chronicles features Kaia Steelflower--thief, assassin, and famous for all the wrong reasons. After she picks the wrong pocket, Kaia wakes up with a hangover, and gets far more than she bargained for.

Originally published in 2007 this is a nicely written sword and sorcery adventure with a crude, drunk, elf woman mercenary. The character is fun with a fairly typical adventure with small group of companions. It works well with a formula fantasy romance. There never was a followup, but its reissue might indicate the author plans one.
I really enjoyed this book. I purchased it on the Kindle as a fill-in until the next Jill Kismet novel came out. I really, really liked this book. Kaia essentially comes from the school of hard knocks - her life has not been what one would call a bowl of cherries! As a child, Kaia lost her mother and the loss settled a silence over her (later revealed). As a result, when she came of age for the testing of power amongst the young females, she did not demonstrate any power. This singular event irrevocably changed the direction of her life and is critical to who she becomes. A series of events occurred leading her to believe she was outcast and she left her homeland to make her own way in the world, again as a child. We enter her life as an adult and she is an accomplished thief, female Robin Hood type, assassin, and warrior living by her wits and her sword arm. Enter the Barbarian - a great character surrounded by no little mystery himself. Great opportunity for future development there ... Kaia picks his pocket and this starts a series of events shaping the rest of the story. Enter Darik ... a somewhat dashing but dangerous and dark elf from her homeland who also has a secret. Everything goes to Hell in a hand basket for Kaia. Her nicely ordered and understood life on the road and of adventure and (yes) hardship, etc., as well as her complete understanding of herself, etc., changes in an instant. The hows and whys are engrossing and interesting and to say more would spoil the experience. The cast of characters who comprise Kaia's band of misfits is intriguing and character development leading to future stories involving them in lots of potentially interesting ways. Suffice to say, this is a really good book and I am sorry to see that additional books in this series have not been written (this was written in 2007). I can only hope this changes. I really liked this book - as much as the Jill Kismet books - they are just different. I highly recommend the book to everyone - especially if you are already a fan of Lilith Saintcrow's other books. Its a bargain and an engrossing read to boot - just buy it!
Loved it! Right away Kaia caught my attention with her attitude and competency and aggression. I loved how she slowly attracted a group of companions and D'ri is awesome! Really hope the next book will be out soon!
I picked this up while browsing the Late Borders Bookstore. I sat down and read a bit. Loved the beginning. The author has a great hook in the beginning chapter, and I was right there in the story. There were some moments while reading though, that I didn't feel as connected as I did in the beginning. The character was fairly well developed,and likable (at least I liked her; or maybe I just wish I had some of those skills). The story moved along fairly smoothly, although there were a few places where it seemed the author skimped on details of the setting, or the backstory. Nonetheless, it was an enjoyable shift from most of what I read (ongoing decades long series, like Jordan and Martin); the character could have been more developed, but overall an enjoyable read.
Pros: Good read without making you wait two or three years to find out what happens next. Character is likable.
Cons: The initial connection to the character and the story has a few bumps in consistency.
This was the book that got me hooked on this author, Lillith Saincrow. I so enjoyed Steelflower that I went and read every other book that she has written (minus 1 series that I didn't like as much as I have the others I have read). My husband has heard me talk about this book so much that he now uses it to rate whatever I am currently reading "do you like this book as much as you did that book about the sell sword?" and I respond no each time. The world that Saintcrow constructs pulled me in and her characters were alive and emotionally invaded my life it seemed. The writing was interesting and not the run of the mill for the paranormal or fantasy genre. Even more interesting, she manages to make the relationships between the male and female leads 'sizzle' without going into graphic detail of their love. The relationship manages to be just as intense and even more so than some of the other books I have read that describe every aspect of the main couples physical relationship. I highly recommend this book, and this author.
Ok, first off I got started with the Jill Kismet series, which I loved. Going into this book I knew it wasn't the same and that the setting were going to be different from what she has written before. Got it. I like fantasy and have no problem at all with traditional fantasy settings. Bring it. I tried to like this book, I like Lilith's style in her other series but this book just doesn't feel right. I don't know if this is an early work of hers or what the deal is, I just can not get into it. It felt like she was trying very hard to remind me of just how strong the lead character was, trying too hard to set up the tough attitude. The hook just didn't seem to be there, there was no problem that needed to be solved or it wasn't what I was used too. I just didn't care about the characters by the time that I got fed up with the book. I wish I could be kinder to this book, but I can't. I like the Kismet series a lot as I stated above, but apparently that is where her magic stays.
