Part of the Powder Mage trilogy Series
Fantasy   eBook Favourites   

Lovereading view...

Truly fascinating characters set in a striking world, with an artful weaving of plot lines and locations, marks this as an impressively memorable fantasy series. If this is your first introduction to Brian McClellan, you really do need to start at the beginning, with ‘Promise of Blood’. Once immersed, it is all too easy to devour as much as you possibly can in one sitting. You always know you are on to a good thing when an author has the ability to make you snigger, physically flinch, mourn characters and feel as though you were engaged on the bloody battle field alongside them. The author has written a number of short stories based on the Powder Mage world and characters, all set before ‘The Powder Mage’ trilogy starts and while the ending to ‘The Autumn Republic’ is truly fitting and just, there surely is more to come... please let there be more to come! ~ Liz Robinson


The Autumn Republic by Brian McClellan

The explosive conclusion to the award-winning Powder Mage trilogy The capital has fallen ...Field Marshal Tamas has finally returned to Adopest, only to find the capital in the hands of a foreign power. With his son Taniel presumed dead, Tamas must gather his beleaguered forces and formulate a plan to defeat the Kez - no easy task when you're outnumbered and can't tell friend from foe. The army is divided ...With their enemy bearing down on them, the Adran command is in disarray. Someone, it seems, is selling secrets to the Kez. Inspector Adamat is determined to flush out the traitor, but as the conspiracy unravels, he will learn a horrifying truth. And all hope rests with one man ...Taniel Two-Shot, the powder mage who shot a god in the eye, is on the run. He possesses the sole means of defeating the Kez, but to do so he must evade treachery at every turn. If he fails, Adro will fall.
