Brian McClellan: The Crimson Campaign

Her in book 3 but I hate that it took 2 books for her storyline to become meaningful We ve still been given zero explanations on how the magic system works I ignored this in PoB because I thought that with time things would become clearer But it hasn t and there s only one book left and I m worried that by the end of it all we ll still be left in the dark and that really makes me sad because I ust want to know the rules and how things work okay But besides that I had a blast reading this It was fun it was thrilling and it was filled with action and excitement I m already started The Autumn Republic which has been fantastic so far and I am super stoked to be finishing this series I probably should have written a review for this before plunging into the last book of the trilogy but it could not be helped I had to know how it would all work outDefinitely better than Promise of Blood and a great action packed free for all One man always makes a difference Sometimes it s a small one Other times he tips a w Faye adjusted her dress and took a deep breath Her eyes traveled around the room A mix of emotions ranged across her face anger panic dear For a moment Nila thought she might snatch up a frying pan and kill her Nila wondered who she was Why was she here Obviously another prisoner Another player in Veta s schemes Could Nila trust her I m Nila she said And this is JackobFayes eyes settled on Nila and she nodded with a frown I m Faye And I m going to kill the bastard I m have felt that way Happy Reading Me. Ades 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 armyIn a rich distinctive world that mixes magic with technology who could stand against mages that control gunpowder and bulle.

So no complaints there I really like the way T Double has been developed especially Tamas In this novel we get a little insight into what drives him and it made me realize how special Tamas is and that how McClellan has not created a one dimensional leader AT ALL And my dear sniper Taniel had his own amazing arc that surprisingly got emotional at times which I love and had some of the best action scenes of this entire series thus far I need to make a special mention to a certain non POV character Olem I really enjoyed his steady presence in PoB and loved him the same here My precious little cigarette addict is so cute and adorable and has some of the best and funniest lines in this series that I absolutely live for Tamas POV Dead Boy just so that I can get of himBut if I m being honest the main reason he s a favourite is totally because the audiobook narrator does such an amazingob with his voice that I Mud and Stars just want to listen to him talk ALL day whoops But really the great character development also extended to so many others creating a full cast of colourful and interesting characters increasing this book s enjoyment factor for me by heaps and loads I don t want to vandalize this great book but I had a few issues Nila s character is still totally pointless and lacking of focus and depth to me Her screen time has increased only a little since the last book but I still find her useless for the most part It was only until the very end of her POV that something actually interesting happened and I have high hopes for. Fend his country from an angry god KresimirBut the threats are closer to homeIn Adro Inspector Adamat only wants to rescue his wife To do so he must track down and confront the evil Lord Vetas He has uestions for Vetas concerning his enigmatic master but the answers will lead Adamat on a darkerourneyWho will lead the chargeTamas's generals bicker among themselves the brig.

I m loving this series This one was even better than the first and definitely sets up the third really well I was a little skeptical about this new Flintlock Fantasy trend but if this is typical of the subgenre I m sold 455 stars This book didn t let up RTC 45 stars The hounds at our heels will soon know we are lions The Crimson Campaign was better in almost every way compared to its predecessor All those problems I had with the character development That s gone Those problems with the pace That s totally gone I wasn t bored and remained almost 100% locked in throughout this entire book which is absolutely incredible because I have the attention span of a goldfish so I am amazed One of the most important parts of a book to me are the characters something I think this book excelled at We re still following T Double Tamas Taniel Adamat and Nila as they deal with the revolution that s now become an all out war and I found all their POVs besides Nila s to be 10x as engaging as before The stakes have been raised as everything feels a lot personal and intense with many unexpected twists that delightfully came out of nowhere and kept me on my toes And I mean it there were LITERALLY two giant stakes raised and maannn this book did not mess around Speaking of which this brings up something else For a novel called Promise of Blood book 1 had an unsatisfyingly pathetic amount of actual bloodshed For me anyway But from the get go The Crimson Campaign felt gruesome and brutal and YES THANK YOU I have been satiated. 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 de.
