Praise for The Shadow Campaigns novels:
"[An] audacious and subversive...mash-up of 17th-century technology and demon-summoning assassins."--"Publishers Weekly"
"Wexler has produced something unusual in the fantasy line, with a setting reminiscent of the early Victorian period, out on the bleeding edge of Empire, a world of dust and bayonets and muskets...and magic....I read it at a gulp and look forward to more."--S. M. Stirling, "New York Times "Bestselling Author of "The Given Sacrifice"
"I absolutely loved it. Wexler balances the actions of his very human characters with just the right amount of imaginative 'magic' to keep me wanting more."--Taylor Anderson, National Bestselling Author of the Destroyermen Series
"Fans of Steven Erikson, David Drake, Glen Cook, Naomi Novik, Tom Kratman, Jack Campbell, David Weber, and John Ringo take note--there's a new military fiction cowboy in town and his name is Django."--SF Signal
"Django Wexler has delivered a highly entertaining debut that mixes elements of Bernard Cornwall-esque military adventure with an original take on magic and a keen eye for action, dialogue, and character....Succeeding volumes may end up doing for the Napoleonic Wars what George R. R. Martin did for the Wars of the Roses. Highly recommended."--Anthony Ryan, "New York Times" Bestselling Author of "Blood Song"

Reseña del editor:

In the latest Shadow Campaigns novel, Django Wexler continues his -epic fantasy of military might and magical conflict-* following The Shadow Throne and The Thousand Names, as the realm of Vordan faces imminent threats from without and within.
In the wake of the King's death, war has come to Vordan.
The Deputies-General has precarious control of the city, but it is led by a zealot who sees traitors in every shadow. Executions have become a grim public spectacle. The new queen, Raesinia Orboan, finds herself nearly powerless as the government tightens its grip and assassins threaten her life. But she did not help free the country from one sort of tyranny to see it fall into another. Placing her trust with the steadfast soldier Marcus D'Ivoire, she sets out to turn the tide of history.
As the hidden hand of the Sworn Church brings all the powers of the continent to war against Vordan, the enigmatic and brilliant general Janus bet Vhalnich offers a path to victory. Winter Ihernglass, newly promoted to command a regiment, has reunited with her lover and her friends, only to face the prospect of leading them into bloody battle.
And the enemy is not just armed with muskets and cannon. Dark priests of an ancient order, wielding forbidden magic, have infiltrated Vordan to stop Janus by whatever means necessary...
