GALAXY BOOKSELLER PICK —— The best thing I’ve read in ages! So good to be back in this world! So well-written, such great characters and such a clever, well-balanced use of magic and muskets. And so different to everything else! More satisfying than a cold beer after a hard day’s work! These books will be on my re-read list forever. Craig Slater


Enter a war-torn world where gunpowder and magic collide  The nation of Fatrasta is a haven for criminals, rebels, adventurers and  sorcerers seeking relics of the past. As insurrection grows, only the iron will of the Lady Chancellor holds the capital city of Landfall together.

Yet an ancient power as old as time is rising, and the fate of this young nation now rests in the hands of a spy, a disgraced war hero and a mercenary general with a past as turbulent as Landfall's present.

Sins of Empire is the bold new epic fantasy from Gemmell Award-winning author Brian McClellan.
