Publisher's Summary

Erika ja Leora is a powder mage in northern Kez, a place where that particular sorcery is punishable by death. She is only protected by her family name and her position as heir to a duchy.
When she decides to help a young commoner-a powder mage marked for death, fugitive from the law-she puts her life and family reputation at risk and sets off to deliver her new ward to the safety of Adro while playing cat and mouse with the king's own mage hunters and their captain, Duke Nikslaus.

A great addition

Story – 4.5/5

This was a great little back story about Tamas’ wife Erika when she was younger and still living in Kez with her Duke father. She is a very strong female character, who would have been great in the main Powder Mage trilogy. As usual with McClellan you get some fantastic action scenes, and everything moves along at a fast pace, adding to all of the excitement.

We obviously get a bit more out of this audiobook, being a novella rather than a short story, and this is a very nice addition to your Brian McClellan collection if you are as much of a fan as I am. Obviously you won’t want to waste a credit on it, but I believe it was worth purchasing in a 40% off sale.

Performance – 4.5/5

Julie Hoverson did a great job, She can do men’s voices very well, and all characters are distinctly recognised. All of the action was well told, and she helped to set the atmosphere of the fear and bravery during the fights.

Overall – 4.5/5
