    With this stunning series opener, Django Wexler leaps to the upper echelon of today’s best fantasy authors.

Captain Marcus d’Ivoire and Winter Ihernglass see their fortunes rise under the command of military genius Janus bet Vhalnich. But Janus’ obsession with the supernatural portends a dire fate for the realm.

    90% battles and 10% character development

    I like battles in my fantasy novels as much as the next person, but in this book, the purpose of the characters is to provide a vehicle for the battle..Show More »

    Anyone can plot a coup or fire an assassin's bullet. But in a world of muskets and magic, it takes considerably more to seize the throne. The ailing King of the Vordan lies on his deathbed. When he dies, his daughter, Raesinia Orboan, will become the first Queen Regnant in centuries - and a ripe target for the ambitious men who seek to control her. The most dangerous of these is Duke Orlanko, Minister of Information and master of the secret police.

    What a great book!

    This book has the chance to be the beginning of a great epic fantasy series. The magic system isn't really unfolded until the second half of the book..Show More »

    Bound and tied, guarded day and night, Abraham has been stolen from his village, from the arms of the man he loved. He is being sent to the fortress-city of Elysium to serve a dark and ancient order, the Priests of the Black. They have discovered the secret he kept all his life: that inside him dwells a demon which allows him to heal...and to kill. But Abraham is not alone. A young woman named Alex, similarly possessed, rides with him.

    In the wake of the king's death, war has come to Vordan. The deputies-general have precarious control of the city, but it is led by a zealot who sees traitors in every shadow. Executions have become a grim public spectacle. The new queen, Raesinia Orboan, finds herself nearly powerless as the government tightens its grip and assassins threaten her life. But she did not help free the country from one sort of tyranny to see it fall into another. Placing her trust with steadfast soldier, Marcus D'Ivoire, she sets out to turn the tide of history.

    Pretty Good

    This is much like the 1st and 2nd book, just of course, it's a continuation of the story. The story ended with a few loose ends, unanswered question..Show More »

    A Return to Form With A Concerning Clifhanger

    Yes. Great character development, desperate against the odds last stands, and interesting plot progression.
