GUNPOWDER AND BULLETS WILL DETERMINE THE VICTOR.

When invasion looms...
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, Kresimir.

But the threats are closer to home...
In Adro, Inspector Adamat wants only 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 will lead Adamat on a darker journey.

Who will lead the charge?
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. With Tamas and his powder cabal presumed dead, Taniel Two-shot finds himself as the last line of defense against Kresimir's advancing army.

THE CRIMSON CAMPAIGN continues the most acclaimed and action-packed new epic fantasy series in years, following on from Promise of Blood - an adrenaline-fuelled debut of flintlock mages, civil war, and cold-blooded murder in a world where gods walk the earth.

A great follow up to A Promise of Blood. While I wouldn't describe it as a quick read, I zipped right through this book. The story is fast paced without any tedious or boring moments. The book has fewer political machinations than Promise of Blood, but it also has a lot more warfare. History buffs will notice the similarities between Field Marshall Tamas's trek across Kez and Deliv and Napoleon's trek through North Africa and the Levant. I can't wait to finish the trilogy.

A brilliant follow up to Promise of Blood. I could not put it down and now I cannot get a day of my life back. If you like Sanderson or Weeks you will love Brian McClellan. His characters are wonderfully portrayed and his story telling is world class. I cannot wait until Autumn Republic's release in February 2015.
