Sins of Empire by Brian McClellan (March 7, 2017 by Orbit)
I’ve been excited ever since I heard Brian McClellan was going to be starting another new fantasy set in the same world as his Powder Mage trilogy. I really enjoyed that series, and I heard that Sins of Empire will take place approximately a decade after The Autumn Republic. Even though this will be the start of a new story, the author has hinted at links between Gods of Blood and Powder and the first trilogy, and from the looks of things we know at least Vlora will be back!
“The young nation of Fatrasta is a turbulent place – a frontier destination for criminals, fortune-hunters, brave settlers, and sorcerers seeking relics of the past. Only the iron will of the lady chancellor and her secret police holds the capital city of Landfall together against the unrest of a suppressed population and the machinations of powerful empires.
The insurrection that threatens Landfall must be purged with wile and force, a task which falls on the shoulders of a spy named Michel Bravis, convicted war hero Ben Styke, and Lady Vlora Flint, a mercenary general with a past as turbulent as Landfall’s present.
As loyalties are tested, revealed, and destroyed, a grim specter as old as time has been unearthed in this wild land, and the people of Landfall will soon discover that rebellion is the least of their worries.”
