Publisher's Summary

In a rich, distinctive world that mixes magic with technology, who could stand against mages that control gunpowder and bullets?
The capital 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, his allies are indistinguishable from his foes, and reinforcements are several weeks away.
An army divided...
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.
All hope rests with one...
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.
The Autumn Republic is the epic conclusion that began with Promise of Blood and The Crimson Campaign.

A five star end to an excellent trilogy

A testament to the Powder Mage Trilogy: I listened to all three books, over 50 hours of it, in a row. While I had issues with some of the series (especially the middle book), it ends on a high note, as The Autumn Republic has many fewer issues -- especially with plotting, token women, and well-rounded relationships -- than either of the former novels. Further, the action remains excellent, the characters get more interesting, and the pace only increases.

It also works well as a final book. In what was a bit of a surprise given the sprawling world-building, almost all of the loose ends of the novels are wrapped up satisfactorily, and the many twists in the novel turn out to evolve naturally from hints laid down in the earlier books. Even better, after a rather grim second book, McClellan finally decides that, despite the low-magic world and constant warfare, he is not really writing grimdark fantasy, but rather the kind of novel where everything works out in satisfying and mostly unambiguous ways. There may be other novels about the powder mages, but this trilogy is a complete work on its own.

This means that, if you haven't read the series, you should. Despite occasional issues, it is engaging trilogy, and one of the best new voices in fantasy in the last couple years. And very well read, as well!

Fantastic Trilogy!!!

When I started this trilogy, I wasn't sure if it was good or not... but then I re-red the first book and red the short story ones too.... It is good... back story for all the characters throughout the trilogy and fantastic character development. It is a really good series..

Action sense are the best in this book and too graphical, which is good... too many loses and so many wins as well... there will be moments where your jaw will drop from the shock....

You get to know so many secrets, and the fate of certain characters.. I do hope that there will be more of powder mage books, I can see future trilogies in futuristic world (like ours now), that would be great.

Narration was excellent, Christian Rodska did a fantastic job in giving character and life to all the characters , it was really good...

I am a bit upset that this trilogy is over, but happy that it was a good ending... you will like this final addition to the powder mage trilogy.
