Inhaltsangabe

Short-listed for the 2016 British Fantasy Society Award for Best Novel.

Guns of the Dawn is a pacey, gripping fantasy of war and magic from Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author Adrian Tchaikovsky.

The first casualty of war is truth....

First, Denland's revolutionaries assassinated their king, launching a wave of bloodshed after generations of peace. Next they clashed with Lascanne, their royalist neighbour, pitching war machines against warlocks in a fiercely fought conflict.

Genteel Emily Marshwic watched as the hostilities stole her family's young men. But then came the call for yet more Lascanne soldiers in a ravaged kingdom with none left to give. Emily must join the ranks of conscripted women and march towards the front lines.

With barely enough training to hold a musket, Emily braves the savage reality of warfare. But she begins to doubt her country's cause, and those doubts become critical. For her choices will determine her own future and that of two nations locked in battle.

Hits home like a musket bullet

A (low)Fantasy about propaganda, war and the people caught inbetween.
This novel kept me on the edge while I followed the protagonist Emily Marshwick to the front, to a war of attrition with incompetent commanders and sensless violence. This story might contract swamp-fever. It is very action pact and the protagonist is great. Some characters are a little superficial either by design or lack of development I cannot tell, but this dosn't substract from the enjoyment. There is even a little love-story tagged on which i didn't like that much because it was not expanded on enough. All considered it was a great ride.
Emma Newman did a great job as narrator. She became Emily Marshwick and this story gains all from a native british accent.
