Description

The country is in turmoil. With the capital city occupied, half a million refugees are on the march, looking for safety on the frontier, accompanied by Lady Flint's soldiers. But escaping war is never easy, and soon the battle may find them, whether they are prepared or not.

Back in the capital, Michel Bravis smuggles even more refugees out of the city. But internal forces are working against him. With enemies on all sides, Michel may be forced to find help with the very occupiers he's trying to undermine.

Meanwhile, Ben Styke is building his own army. He and his mad lancers are gathering every able body they can find and searching for an ancient artifact that may have the power to turn the tides of war in their favor. But what they find may not be what they're looking for.

Can't wait for the third book.

Loved it. My only niggle would be Christian Rodska's voice for Beau makes a 30ish man sound like Winston Churchill!

great story, riveting

I found some of the voices of the narration a bit over the top. Sometimes the accents were barely understandable.

The story was great though, better than the 1st book.

Can't get enough

I haven't had a series hold my attention like this since Sandersons stormlight series. I can't wait for the next book. Christian Rodska has the perfect gritty voice for these books. Everybody has a very unique voice, but they sound exactly how I would picture people that would be around smoke and gunpowder all the time. The story is absolutely fascinating. There's so much depth and layers to everyone and everything that is happening. There's almost never a dull moment, even for the characters that have menial tasks to accomplish. Next book please!

Another Amazing Book

I am happy I stumbled across Brian McCallum. these books have turned out to be amazing across-the-board. I enjoy the unique style and flavor of the magic system. I enjoy the style of the setting, the idea of the world that's growing around it and I really enjoy the characters especially Ben in particular.

Engageing

I cannot describe this second book in this series. Captivating , spellbinding action, unbelievable adventure and all tied together in a thrilling story of a marvelous world of unusual magic with the talent of Brian McClellan and Christian Rodska. I was drown into this series completely. I can not recommend this enough as I cannot imagine anyone not enjoying and being amazed.

Great story!

Once again Brian has done it again! Great story...or rather stories! I enjoyed all....even if Vlora's made me roll my eyes and get angry with her and her condescending attitude, but still good storyline. Christian does a great job as always with giving each character their own voice. Just wish the book and audio could sync up....denied with this book by whomever makes those decisions.
All in all you won't regret getting this book!! Can't wait to see how 3 goes! Hurry up December!

Great series from a great author.

Wrath of Empire is another great book by Brian McClellan. I met him at the Salt Lake Comicon (now FanX) several years ago, when he basically begged me to buy his first book. Brian, I have to thank you for that. I have gotten more joy from his books than I have from almost any author.
Wrath of Empire is the second in a great trilogy (this far). Brian does a great job with world building, it is both unique and feels familiar. His characters are very human, with heroes that are not lily white, and villains that are not dark black. They are full of depth and complexities that he continues to delve into.
I cannot wait until December for the coming finally. I am also looking forward to his new series, that will be taking place in what looks to be a new world.

simply great

A continued success and the books keep getting better. The only negative is that the books aren't coming out faster.
