Product description


Praise for The Guns of Empire

Another excellently entertaining novel, filled with battles and politics and personalities...It subverts, interrogates, or outright inverts a good few tropes associated with epic fantasy, and with gender

The Guns of Empire...only serves to further cement Django Wexler as one of the best authors currently writing, and his work as truly spellbinding.--Fantasy Book Review

Praise for the Shadow Campaigns Novels

"A fascinating world of dust and bayonets and muskets...and magic."--S.M. Stirling, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Novels of the Change

Gritty, brutal, and yet wonderfully intimate...exceptional military fantasy.--Jason M. Hough, New York Times Bestselling Author of Zero World

"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 the Raven's Shadow Novels

"Without a doubt, the best book of its year."--Simon R. Green, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Secret Histories Novels

"[A] mash-up of seventeenth-century technology and demon-summoning assassins."--*Publishers Weekly
