Publisher's Summary

Captain Vlora is a powder mage in the Adran army. Once the favored, adopted daughter of the field marshal, she is now a pariah amongst those she called her family. Her superior officers would like nothing more than to send her to a far off posting and forget about her, but no one is exempt when there is a war - and powder mages are desperately needed.

When a traitorous guard captain goes on the run with information that could harm the war effort, Vlora is sent on his trail. She has three days to find him; she will have to make new friends and test the limits of her skills. Fail, and good soldiers will die. Succeed and maybe, just maybe, she can begin to work her way back into the field marshal's good graces.

A new story set in the world of the Powder Mage trilogy, the most acclaimed and action-packed new epic fantasy series in recent years. Return to Honor takes place directly following the events of book one, Promise of Blood.

Quick And Good

Quick and good read. This short story was based before the 2nd book... The main character here is Vlora, the once loved person, started this trilogy with a mistake and she ended up being hated by everyone. Vlora is tasked to find a traitor who killed an officer and who has important information that could be used against them in the upcoming war. She finds herself in bad situation where most of the army dislikes her and with only 3 days to complete her job.

I have enjoyed this book because it showed more details in regards to two characters in the trilogy and it showed the thoughts that are going inside Vlora's head.

Awaiting the 3 trilogy which should come any minute now. ....

Quick fun read. audible20 review sweepstakes entry

The powder mage universe has been one I’ve invested a lot in over the past year. Promise of Blood the first book in the trilogy is a favorite of mine now and this is a good inbetween for that first book and the second book crimson campaign.

Christian Rodska once again kills it as narrator and does an excellent job.
These novellas and short stories do a good job of providing much needed character development and this one focuses on Vlora. If you didn’t like her in the first book you’ll like her at the end of this.

The story itself deals with hunting down an enemy soldier before he can spill important information without giving too much away. It’s a fun quick paced read and you can’t best the price. If you are starting the powder mage series this is essential to the universe.

Nice

A good insight into characters we normally only hear a different side of. Wish it were longer!
