Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Each chapter is told from the point of view of one character in true R R Martin style which has rather taken over this area of fantasy, only here there are only two main characters! Very predictable with lots of battle scenes and an interesting world which we will know more about as the series continues, it is different in so much as we have guns as opposed to swords. Very military-based with a huge scope I feel it will develop into an epic series.

If you like Django Wexler you might also like to read books by George R R Martin, Steven Erikson and Glen Cook.

Synopsis

The Thousand Names The Shadow Campaign by Django Wexler

In the desert colony of Khandar, a dark and mysterious magic, hidden for centuries, is about to emerge from darkness. Marcus d'Ivoire, senior captain of the Vordanai Colonials, is resigned to serving out his days in a sleepy, remote outpost, when a rebellion leaves him in charge of a demoralised force in a broken down fortress. Winter Ihernglass, fleeing her past and masquerading as a man, just wants to go unnoticed. Finding herself promoted to a command, she must rise to the challenge and fight impossible odds to survive. Their fates rest in the hands of an enigmatic new Colonel, sent to restore order while following his own mysterious agenda into the realm of the supernatural.
