Inhaltsangabe

The Age of Kings is dead. And I have killed it.

Field Marshal Tamas' coup against his king sends corrupt aristocrats to the guillotine and brings bread to the starving. But it also provokes war in the Nine Nations, internal attacks by royalist fanatics and greedy scrambling for money and power by Tamas' supposed allies: the Church, workers' unions, and mercenary forces. Stretched to his limit, Tamas relies heavily on his few remaining powder mages, including the embittered Taniel, a brilliant marksman who also happens to be Tamas' estranged son, and Adamat, a retired police inspector whose loyalty will be tested to its limit.

Now, amid the chaos, a whispered rumour is spreading. A rumour about omens of death and destruction. Just old peasant legends about the gods returning to walk the Earth. No modern educated man believes that sort of thing.… But perhaps they should.

Slow start, but worth it

The book starts a bit slow and it took me a while to really care about the characters, but once it gets rolling it really grips you until the very end. The reader is incredible and acts out each person so well, that you can hear their emotions and pain through his voice.
I'm looking forward to the second book.

Revolution and Magic

It's a quite interesting story and world, a bit like French revolution but with magic.
There are many interesting characters, much action and all in a kind of low-tec-steampunk world.

to keep it short - it's a fun and action rich story nothing too deep but I enjoyed it a lot.

Overall awesome

The story is truly addicting and binding. On top if that it is new. Not some story rewritten by dozens of authors in an ever repeating pattern. It makes the story hard to predict and truly breath taking.
Not to forget the simply awesome performance by Christian Rodska. I might end up giving an audio book a try simply because he is reading it.
