Publisher's Summary

A conflict of ideals. Magic vs. fire-powered weapons. The fate of Issalia hangs in the balance.

A new Empire has risen to power. Already in control of the east coast, the Imperial Army sets its sights on Issalia's western kingdoms. Tensions rise as both sides prepare for war.

What deadly weapon will the Empire develop next?

Brandt and Quinn are espions - part spy, part thief, part assassin. Under false identities, these spies find themselves deeply entrenched within Empire headquarters. There, they gather information, seeking a means to foil the Empire's plans for conquest.

One misstep by either warden could result in death - their own and thousands of others.

Driven by the core belief that Chaos magic is evil, the Empire seeks to stamp out this scourge. If victorious, Chaos will be outlawed. Those who can wield it...will be executed.

Great writing but commits fatale flaws

1. Too many characters and POV makes the story hard to follow and doesn’t help readers get into the world of the story.
2. The stakes of this book are very low. Nothings pressing and there’s so many story lines that it’s hard to find the true purpose.
3. The characters are too wholesome. The empire is bad but they don’t show it. The prologue does nothing to tie to the book.
4. The book doesn’t have a climax or finale. It’s simply stories that continue with no resolution to previous story lines or plots.

Not worth the time

Very confusing. Difficult to follow the story. Too many characters and too many different stories in the story. Great narrator.

Epically Awesome.

I am loving these books. Great to read and so enjoyable. I recommend these books for anyone who loves a good oul story of adventure, magic and intrigue. The third book is another fantastic addition in the Wardens series. It is the best in the series so far and as the story continues it gets better and better as our characters keep finding them selves in perilous situations. In this book the author focuses more on missions for various Wardens as well as some development of weaponry for the upon coming war with the Empire. Most of the book focuses on Quinn and Brand, Their story and relationship is great, Reminds me of Jace and Narine from his other series with good humour and banter between them. Driven by the core belief that Chaos magic is evil, the Empire seeks to stamp out this scourge. If victorious, magic will be outlawed and those who can wield it will be executed. Awesome worldbuilding, plot and setting, Tim Cambell continues to give a great narration performance, highly recommended...😁💥🔥
