Regrettably, Tamas turns for help from his estranged son, Taniel. Taniel often swallows gunpowder to gain superpowers, and is as unreliable and as untrustworthy as he is a brilliant marksman. Tamas even goes to the extent of trusting a former police investigator, regardless of his blackmail trait.
Promise of Blood is in a sense, the story of political games, where money and power trigger an interplay that is unreliable, short-lived, and dangerous. After reading the Promise of Blood, subsequent installments of the storyline became inevitable. Following on the same plot, the Crimson Campaign narrates how the Field Marshal Tamas faces the reality of what he had initiated with a coup.
After fighting the royalist fanatics and allies alike, as the mercenary forces, the church, and the workers threaten his authority, the Field Marshall is finally forced to defend the monarch from Kez. The outcomes of the international war worsen by the day, as his army gradually weakens behind enemy lines. Kresimir demands for the head of his shooter. As if that is not enough, Tamas watches as his brigades lose all essential grounds. As this accrue, the army from Kez matches on against the highly outnumbered men under the command of Tamas. Thus, the novel narrates, about the Crimson Campaign.
In conclusion, the Powder Mage trilogy firmly anchored McClellan as a highly esteemed American author, specialized in fantasy fiction.

Getting to see Inspector Adamat in his prime was a wonderful experience, and even though you know that the guy doesn't die or anything, and has an illustrious career as a police investigator until he retires at middle-age, I still felt tension when he was on the verge of losing his job and his reputation. So, good job, Brian McClellan. You should definitely take a look at this one, if only to see a master investigator do his job to perfection.
Oh, and you get to see young Adamat and Ricard Tumblar. So that's awesome. This is a collection of all the Powder Mage short stories thus written though I believe there's a new one coming out soon in the Unbound anthology edited by Shawn Speakman. I technically haven't read one of the stories in the collection, so I can't speak to its quality, but the rest of the stories are definitely worth reading.
Brian McClellan - Book Series In Order
In Hope's End , we get to see one of Tamas' lesser-known soldiers, Verundish, deal with loads of problems in the middle of a war. But we also get to see Tamas being a total boss. And finally, in Return to Honor , my most recent read, we see Vlora and Olem do some good ol' investigate and shoot 'em up. In short, all of the Powder Mage short fiction is worth your time, especially if the books have you sold on the world. This may be an overly-long post about a book series most of you won't read.
But I still wanted to write it because of how much I enjoyed this series. The only real problem I had with it was the amount of swearing, which was a bit more than I usually am okay with in fiction. Yes, the whole series is about a bunch of soldiers, but I've never really been one for swearing in any art form, and it will probably always bother me. Other than that, everything in this series was executed wonderfully, from the foreshadowing to the character development to the way that dark, horrible things are seen for what they are without glorifying them.
I highly recommend this series and all of its stories, all of which you can find at the author's website here. This is, as I said, flintlock fantasy at its finest, and will forever remain on my bookshelf.
And hopefully you'll take the time to read them and you'll enjoy them as much as I have. Thanks for reading, everyone.

Promise of Blood I've read this book twice--once in when it first came out and then again several weeks ago when I decided to read all the way through and finish the series. The Crimson Campaign I'm not entirely sure whether or not this is my favorite book of the three main novels. The Autumn Republic This last book was epic.
Forsworn Forsworn is the first of a collection of novellas that Brian McClellan wrote as tie-ins to the trilogy. Servant of the Crown Basically, this novella is the sequel to Forsworn , and is in some respects better than the original. Murder at the Kinnen Hotel I just recently read this last novella from the Powder Mage-verse, and it's definitely one of my favorite stories.
In The Field Marshal's Shadow This is a collection of all the Powder Mage short stories thus written though I believe there's a new one coming out soon in the Unbound anthology edited by Shawn Speakman.
