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 an oppressed population and the machinations of powerful empires. The insurrection that threatens Landfall must be purged with guile and force, a task which falls on the shoulders of a spy named Michel Bravis, convicted war hero Mad 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.

This highly entertaining epic flintlock fantasy novel was clearly written in the quick flowing style of Brandon Sanderson. The unique setting is an imaginative blend of the American old western frontier with a more traditional sword and sorcery novel. This is the first book in an unfinished trilogy. Unfortunately, I did not read McClellan's earlier *Powder Mage* trilogy and this book makes numerous frustrating references to past events. So, if you are interesting in this book, I strongly suggest reading the three *Powder Mage* books first.
