I read and loved these years ago. But I borrowed them from the library, and I wanted to own them. So this year I decided to finally do that. I bought them, and I started to re-read

Omg, just as amazing as the first time I read it. Yes this series stood the test of time *ahem, ok a few years, but hey still!* Love it. Go Tamas! Taniel, my man. Just great fantasy.

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-chef 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.


  1. Oooh, a blast from the past. It's amazing how far he has come.

  2. I love it when a series is just as good as you remember. I'll have to check it out.

  3. Yea, so glad you are enjoying your re-read. The cover doesn't look very "fantasy," is it more of a war book in a fantasy setting or what are the fantasy elements?

    1. It is flintlock fantasy, so not the middle ages. They have guns and such, and magic

  4. I love it when they stand the test of time like that. :)

  5. I don't think that I have heard of this one. It sounds great though.

  6. Awwww! Love that you bought this! There are a couple of series I'm contemplating buying this xmas
