'Just plain awesome' -- Brandon Sanderson

Civil unrest cripples the citizens of Adro in the aftermath of the revolution that obliterated the monarchy. Now, Field Marshal Tamas and his lieutenants must confront the true cost of freedom in book one of the Powder Mage Trilogy.

It's a bloody business overthrowing a king. . .

Field Marshal Tamas' coup against his king sent corrupt aristocrats to the guillotine and brought bread to the starving. But it also provoked war with the Nine Nations, internal attacks by royalist fanatics, and the greedy to scramble for money and power by Tamas's supposed allies: the Church, workers unions, and mercenary forces.

It's up to a few. . .

Stretched to his limit, Tamas is relying heavily on his few remaining powder mages, including the embittered Taniel, a brilliant marksman who also happens to be his estranged son, and Adamat, a retired police inspector whose loyalty is being tested by blackmail.

But when gods are involved. . .

Now, as attacks batter them from within and without, the credulous are whispering about omens of death and destruction. Just old peasant legends about the gods waking to walk the earth. No modern educated man believes that sort of thing. But they should. . .

Winner of the David Gemmell Morningstar Award for Best Debut Fantasy.

Absolutely fantastic story and narrator!!!! I’m pretty critical about books and this one really surprised me with its character builds and world build. His concept of magic I found to be quite interesting and fun too. It’s been a while since I enjoyed a book this much.

Christian Rodska Is amazing. He enhances this story immensely. I read this series when it 1st came out and its one of my top 10 fantasy series of the last 20 years. However when i listened to the audio, Rodska easily puts it in my top 5 now. Hes truly just that good. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
