When invasion looms...
Tamas's invasion of Kez ends in disaster when a Kez counter-offensive
leaves him cut off behind enemy lines with only a fraction of his army,
no supplies, and no hope of reinforcements. Drastically outnumbered and
pursued by the enemy's best, he must lead his men on a reckless march
through northern Kez to safety, and back over the mountains so that he
can defend his country from an angry god, Kresimir.
But the threats are closer to home...
In Adro, Inspector Adamat only wants to rescue his wife. To do so he
must track down and confront the evil Lord Vetas. He has questions for
Vetas concerning his enigmatic master, but the answers will lead Adamat
on a darker journey.
Who will lead the charge?
Tamas's generals bicker among themselves, the brigades lose ground every
day beneath the Kez onslaught, and Kresimir wants the head of the man
who shot him in the eye. With Tamas and his powder cabal presumed dead,
Taniel Two-shot finds himself as the last line of defense against
Kresimir's advancing army.
In a rich, distinctive world that
mixes magic with technology, who could stand against mages that control
gunpowder and bullets? THE CRIMSON CAMPAIGN is the epic sequel to Brian
McClellan's Promise of Blood.
