Publisher's Summary

Adopest has fallen . . .Field Marshal Tamas returns to his beloved country to find that for the first time in history, the capital city of Adro lies in the hands of a foreign invader. His son is missing and his allies are indistinguishable from his foes, and reinforcements are several weeks away.

With the Kez still bearing down upon them and without clear leadership, the Adran army has turned against itself. Inspector Adamat is drawn into the very heart of this new mutiny with promises of finding his kidnapped son.

And Taniel Two-shot, hunted by men he once thought his friends, must safeguard the only chance Adro has of getting through this war without being destroyed . . .

End of the road, wrap party

What did you love best about The Autumn Republic?

of the three books, I feel that Autumn flowed best. At no point I felt like I had to chew through a chapter to get to the good bits.

What did you like best about this story?

That is brought a very satisfying conclusion to trilogy

What does Christian Rodska bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

superb voice acting.
with the exception of Bo, who sounds like an old toothless man, not a strapping mage in his twenties.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

there were a few laughs, a few clenched butthole moments

fantastic trilogy

These were some amazing books and I loved every moment of listening to them. if you enjoy a complex lyrics woven story with multiple protagonists this is just for you. With a touch of magic but not much other fantasy elements this story is wonderfully colored, and I found my self caring for the protagonists and hating the antagonists. the way everyone is described and narrated makes you fall into the whole thing and I kept finding my self annoyed when I had to put it down. loved it.

Tamas and Taniel ride again!

What made the experience of listening to The Autumn Republic the most enjoyable?

Christian Rodska narration is superb. There are hundreds of characters and each is invested with a distinct accent. The only misfire for me was Bo the sorcerer who seemed like an old man not a 20 something wizard! But other than that...faultless!

What did you like best about this story?

It tied up all the loose ends from the other books in an exciting and satisfactory way!

What about Christian Rodska’s performance did you like?

His performance bought the book alive! He is superb!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I don't want to spoil the books for those who've yet to listen to them but there are lots of moving moments where characters lives were in peril.

Any additional comments?

A good listen. It was great to see a fantasy novel set in a world not disimilar to that of Napoleon and Wellington. Apparently the author calls the genre Flintlock Fantasy. The main characters of Tamas, Taniel and Adamat were well written. Some of the female characters less so. But kudos for having the women as soldiers who get involved in the blood and guts of battle. I really enjoyed this trilogy.

An emotional change of pace

A little less combat heavy for the bulk of the novel, focusing on the intrigues of building a Republic until the final quarter. A beautiful, heartwrenching ending to a fantastic series.

All things end...

The Autumn Republic doesn't ease up on the pace but keeps building and building before delivering an emotional finale. At time this constant build up is almost too much and I wonder of the latter part of Republic might actually have been a planned fourth part that instead got spliced in to limit this to a trilogy. That means that some plotlines don't tie up as neatly as they should have. Inspector Adamat's quest fizzles out with so little emotional fanfare it hardly seems worth having it in there to begin with and Nila's sudden surprise twist at the end of Book 2 goes mostly unexplored and unexplained but the charged relationship between her and the loveable rogue Bo does lead to some nice comedy moments as she comes to grips with her new purpose. Towards the end there is a strange lull in the pacing which then results in a rather clumsy reveal of a new threat that seems to come out of nowhere and disappear almost as suddenly as it appeared but not before leaving its mark. The ending will divide opinions but there is no denying that the trilogy as a whole is a great tale and kudos again to Rodska who's rock solid performance lifts this up as one of the best audiobook series out there.

Like a cross between sharpe and Harry Potter

Loved it! Great likeable characters, humorous banter, powerful action that gets the hairs on the back of your neck tingling and a distinctive voice for every character. Highly recommended!!

Absolutely excellent book!

The Autumn Republic was an absolutely amazing third and final book in The Powder Mage trilogy.
Fantastic twists and turns right up to the very end. Also with every question/storyline tied up.
5/5... truly great!
Also once again, Christian Rodska was awesome with the narration.

Fabulous!

Really enjoyed this book which rounded out the trilogy beautifully. A great story with well rounded characters bought to life by Christian Rhodska's reading. An exceptional package!
