Publisher's Summary

A new epic fantasy series from highly acclaimed fantasy author Brian McClellan, set in the same world as the Powder Mage trilogy.

A world on the cusp of a new age...

The young nation of Fatrasta is a turbulent place - a frontier destination for criminals, fortune hunters, brave settlers, and sorcerers seeking relics of the past. Only the iron will of the lady chancellor and her secret police holds the capital city of Landfall together against the unrest of an oppressed population and the machinations of powerful empires.

Sedition is a dangerous word....

The insurrection that threatens Landfall must be purged with guile and force, a task that falls on the shoulders of a spy named Michel Bravis, convicted war hero Mad Ben Styke, and Lady Vlora Flint, a mercenary general with a past as turbulent as Landfall's present.

The past haunts us all....

As loyalties are tested, revealed, and destroyed, a grim specter as old as time has been unearthed in this wild land, and the people of Landfall will soon discover that rebellion is the least of their worries.

    "A great start to McClellan's next series"

    Having greatly enjoyed the Powdermage Trilogy and McClellan's novellas, I was very excited to see Sins Of Empire become available. Once again, the author has delivered an engaging novel that draws you into his world and his characters. The reader does a fantastic job and brings back the same "voices" for the familiar characters while wrapping you into the highs and lows like a bard of old. I'd highly recommend Sins of Empire to any McClellan fan, and any fan of darker epic fantasy.

    "Just fantastic"

    I actually think this is even better than the Powder Mage books. And that's saying a lot because I gave those a five star rating. The characters are so skillfully crafted that I in many ways feel I actually know them in the sense I could predict their reactions beforehand. The universe these books play themselves out within is beautifully illustrated and described. The world feels vibrantly "alive"
    and very vast place indeed. I also think Christian Rodska does a wonderful job bringing the author's intentions to light with his narration. Go read the Powder Mage trilogy this instant unless you already have. I rank the author up there among my absolute favorites like Abercrombie, Rothfuss and Lynch! They all put something new on the table that none of us ever tasted before, and it's delicious!

    "McClellan delivers again."

    If you loved the Powdermage Trilogy then you are in for more from the author's endless well. He dishes this story up with consistent quality and adds a few twists as well. Narration is flawless and riveting as ever (for those of us who favor audio book format).
