This review is from: Promise of Blood: Book 1 in the Powder Mage trilogy (Hardcover)
Fantastic debut. The political sub text sets it apart from many other fantasy series. The characters are well fleshed out and do not inhabit a world of absolutes. The shades of grey and the overlap of the personal and socio-political aspects of each person are extremely interesting. The story is well structured and paced. There is more than enough in this book to keep us coming back for more.
