Publisher's Summary

Captain Tamas is an ambitious young officer in the Adran army. As a commoner, he is one of very few without noble blood to hold a rank. When he challenges the son of a duke over an insult, the subsequent duel lands him in hot water with the nobility and the royal cabal of Privileged sorcerers. Tamas is soon drawn into a conflict that goes to the very highest office in the land, and his only ally is the most unlikely of people; a young noblewoman named Erika, who needs Tamas to teach her how to wield her powers as a powder mage.

The best of the Powder Mage Novellas


Story – 5/5

This was my favourite of all of the novellas/short stories in the powder mage world. It was detailed and substantial enough to get a full story out of it, and was a really nice bit of background of how Tamas met his wife Erika. The action was expertly written, as usual from McClellan, and the political intrigue and romance intertwined left me wanting a whole lot more.

If you are a big fan of the main trilogy, and you want more while waiting for the next novel, I found it well worth buying this in a 40% off sale.


Performance – 3.5/5

It took a bit to get used to Daniel Dorse, and once I had, I was able to enjoy the story a lot more. His voice acting in very good, but he just sounded a bit dreary when describing the scenes. It may have just been me.


Overall – 4.5/5
