Publisher's Summary

Forged in the fires of conflict, the Iron Kingdoms is a fantastic realm where the combined power of magic and technology thunders across a landscape shaped by war. Dominating the field of battle are rare individuals who have mastered both arcane and martial combat and who boldly lead mighty armies in the ongoing struggle to claim victory over these ancient lands.
An untrustworthy ally is more dangerous than a known enemy.
Lord General Coleman Stryker is one of the greatest heroes of the Iron Kingdoms. As a warcaster, Stryker leads the armies of Cygnar and commands the power of the mighty steam-powered automatons known as warjacks.
Chosen by his king to liberate the conquered lands of Llael from Cygnar's long-standing enemy, the Empire of Khador, Stryker finds himself forced to work with one of his most bitter enemies - the exiled mercenary Asheth Magnus, a man to whom Cygnar's king owes his life. Unchecked, Magnus could easily betray Stryker, undermine the mission, or even bring Cygnar to its knees. But to claim victory for his king, Stryker will have to find a way to put his faith in a man he can't trust.
As the war against Khador and its own fierce commanders looms, Stryker's success or failure will become the flash point that determines the fate of all the Iron Kingdoms.

another ok warmachine story

after blood of kings I was knashing my teeth waiting for this book. that said the performance in the early part of the book was difficult to listen to to the point of making me want to return it. I pushed on and as the voice of each charecter became more distinct the book became much easier to listen to.

you don't need to read blood of kings to jump into this story but it does help frame the events of Flashpoint.

my big issue is the same as with all other warmachine stories if there is a modle of the charecter for the minis game then they are not in any real danger bad stuff may happen to them but they will come out the other side ok if not stronger. I have been an avid Cygnar fan for sometime and I'm pretty much asking them to pull the trigger on some of my favorite characters or at least make me feel like that could happen.

over all not a bad continuation of blood of kings and The advancement of the Magnus story line is pretty cool.
