Publisher's Summary

The hounds at our heels will soon know we are lions. Tamas's invasion of Kez ends in disaster when a Kez counter-offensive leaves him cut off behind enemy lines with only a fraction of his army, no supplies and no hope of reinforcements. Drastically outnumbered and pursued by the enemy's best, he must lead his men on a reckless march through northern Kez to safety, and back over the mountains so that he can defend his country from an angry god.
In Adro, Inspector Adamat only wants to rescue his wife. To do so he must track down and confront the evil Lord Vetas. He has questions for Vetas concerning his enigmatic master, but the answers might come too quickly. With Tamas and his powder cabal presumed dead, Taniel Two-shot finds himself alongside the god Mihali as the last line of defence against Kresimir's advancing army.
Tamas's generals bicker among themselves, the brigades lose ground every day beneath the Kez onslaught and Kresimir wants the head of the man who shot him in the eye.

Excellent

Yet another trilogy where I am left hanging in anticipation of book 3.

And another author whose name I will search on regularly for new books....

Action, clever magic / mystery, great characters..... well narrated. What's not to like. Ticked all my usual boxes.

If you're a fan of "epic fantasy", whilst not quite as "epic" as a Sanderson or an Abercrombie, it's still up there with the good ones!

Great book!

I enjoyed this book a lot.
Fast moving pace, the return of favorite characters and schemes and plots. My favorite charcter is Ka-pol with her sorcery. I'd love a book about her.
Keen for book 3.
Once again Christian Rodska is fantastic with his narration.

Looking for more!

Thoroughly enjoyed book 2 of The Powder Mage trilogy. An intriguing story beautifully narrated. Hoping book 3 comes soon. I highly recommend this series.
