Description
As war rages, both sides are in a race to find the one thing that could turn the tides to their favor—a stone with the power to turn humans into gods—in this epic fantasy tale of magic and gunpowder by acclaimed author Brian McClellan.

The country is in turmoil. With the capital city occupied, half a million refugees are on the march, looking for safety on the frontier, accompanied by Lady Flint's soldiers. But escaping war is never easy, and soon the battle may find them, whether they are prepared or not.

Back in the capital, Michel Bravis smuggles even more refugees out of the city. But internal forces are working against him. With enemies on all sides, Michel may be forced to find help with the very occupiers he's trying to undermine.

Meanwhile, Ben Styke is building his own army. He and his mad lancers are gathering every able body they can find and searching for an ancient artifact that may have the power to turn the tides of war in their favor. But what they find may not be what they're looking for.

        March 15, 2018
        Second entry in McClellan's Gods of Blood and Powder fantasy series (Sins of Empire, 2017), in which the land of Fatrasta has been invaded by the armies and sorcerers of the vast Dynize empire.To cement their recent reunion after a civil war, the Dynize want to create a new god and so seek godstones, ancient monoliths infused with magic powerful enough to achieve this. Taniel Two-shot, a former powder mage who killed a god in McClellan's previous trilogy, acquiring near godlike powers, and his companion, the enigmatic Ka-Poel, a mute bone-eye sorcerer, are utterly determined to prevent them. Because Taniel and Ka-Poel alone can detect the godstones, which are concealed by potent magic, Taniel joins up with Gen. Vlora Flint and her Riflejack mercenaries, previously hired by Lady Chancellor Lindet to defend the capital and now shepherding a mob of refugees away from Dynize attacks, while Ka-Poel accompanies Col. Ben Styke and his Mad Lancers, who, deprived of their magic armor, are still a formidable but no longer invincible fighting force. Meanwhile, in the now occupied capital, former Blackhat spy Michel Bravis worms his way into the good graces of the occupying Dynize bureaucracy in order to make contact with the mysterious informant promised by Taniel. McClellan continues to add depth and richness to his characters and backdrop, swirls in some intriguing plot twists and complications, and sprinkles enough desperate fighting to satisfy the most insistently sanguineous readers. Possible cavils include excessive length, a dearth of truly jaw-dropping moments, and no claim to independent intelligibility--although many fans will account these as strengths.McClellan's design and construction grow steadily more impressive with each fresh installment.

        Starred review from April 2, 2018
        In this terrific epic fantasy sequel to Sins of Empire, McClellan mixes quest, battle, and espionage plotlines with strong character development and a variety of magics. He does not provide any narrative assistance for new readers, such as a plot summary or cast of characters, but instead launches right in with Ka-Sedial, leader of the invading Dynize forces, tasking six preternatural dragonmen with killing Ben Styke, leader of the Mad Lancers. Ben, powder mage Gen. Vlora Flint, Taniel Two-Shot, the bone-eye sorceress Ka-poel, and their forces seek out the two remaining godstones across the vast continent of Fatrasta, hoping to destroy them before Ka-Sedial can use them to create a new god. In Landfall, the first Fatrastan city that the Dynize captured, Michel Bravis must find a woman he knows only as “Mara” and spirit her from the city on Taniel’s orders, even if that means infiltrating the Dynize occupiers. McClellan ably balances combat, ranging from fistfights and duels on up to pitched battles between armies, with the love, rage, loyalty, and soul-searching of individual characters. This is top-notch epic fantasy fare. Agent: Caitlin Blasdell, Liza Dawson Assoc.
