To put it bluntly, this entire world, its people, its history and magic system is nothing short of amazing.
I may have mixed feelings for the short story's that McClellan has made for the world he has created, but this one without a doubt (in my eyes) is a great prologue to a story that official ended about a year ago.

Let me be the first to admit that this book is pretty short. Less then a hundred pages and a bit predictable, but the writing, pacing and characters are so well written that I only noticed them once I stop to write a review. Even then this did nothing to ruin my enjoyment of this book. I won't spoil anything for people who haven't read the main story but I will say this.
Remember to pick this up when you're up to date.

Another great story, providing much needed backstory to the central characters in the Powder Mage series. However this is another one, like Face At The Window that could really have done with being a full novel.

Brian McClellan has done such a good job of creating an immersive and compelling world full of interesting characters that I want to know more about them. While Tamas is fairly well served in this regard, Erika (and Taniel, as I mentioned in my review of Face At The Window) are probably the two worst served, as I find them at least as interesting as Tamas. I suppose this makes McClellan something of a victim of his own success.

Rather than these short stories that leave as many questions as they answer, I feel the characters would have been better served with a prelude trilogy, or possibly a single novel each to flesh out their lives. I realise this would be difficult as a novella is so much easier to write in between books of the main trilogy, but I feel these characters deserve it. I want to know how Tamas and Erika's relationship developed beyond their initial meeting and I'd like to have more detail of Duke Nikslaus (sp?) considering the major impact he has on Tamas and Erika's lives.

I am a big fan of Brian McClellan's Powder Mage series. I have now read everything he has published for this series (and am awaiting more).

This novella tells the story of how Tamas met Erika. Obviously, there is a little more to it than just the usual meeting and falling in love. Privileged Mages from the Royal Cabal seems to be flexing their power and the King is not happy. He drags Tamas into the game, but not in the way the Cabal think. Tamas has a conflict with a Privileged which starts to get out of hand. Within this, Erika seeks out Tamas for training as a Power Mage. After initial hesitation, Tamas finally agrees.

Obviously Tamas and Erika get married as this was in the novels. The story was brief, fast paced and was an excellent story. Hopefully we will get another short bit of fiction before the next book on the series.

Enjoyable novella set early in Field Marshal Tammas career, full of action, it tells how the parents of Taniel first met over a heavy bout of violence!
