Brian McClellan - Return ​to Honor
Captain ​Vlora is a powder mage in the Adran army. Once the favored, adopted daughter of the field marshal, she is now a pariah amongst those she called her family. Her superior officers would like nothing more than to send her to a far off posting and forget about her, but no one is exempt when there is a war -- and powder mages are desperately needed. When a traitorous guard captain goes on the run with information that could harm the war effort, Vlora is sent on his trail. She has three days to find him; she will have to make new friends and test the limits of her skills. Fail, and good soldiers will die. Succeed and maybe, just maybe, she can begin to work her way back into the field marshal's good graces. A new story set in the world of the Powder Mage trilogy, the most acclaimed and action-packed new epic fantasy series in recent years. _Return to Honor_ takes place directly following the events of book one, _Promise of Blood_.

Brian McClellan - A ​birodalom vére
Ha ​elveszítik a háborút, az egész világ elbukik. Közeleg a végső ütközet, ahol mindenki számít – legyen az illető kém, zsoldoskapitány vagy híres-hírhedt lőpormágus tábornok. A danízok rátették kezüket a szárazparti istenkőre, így Michel Bravisnak nincs más lehetősége, mint visszatérni Zöldtűzmélybe, hogy bármi áron megakadályozza a használatát. Nem riad vissza semmilyen eszköztől, legyen az belső ellentétek szítása az ellenség soraiban, vagy a palo népesség feltüzelése. Ben Styke daníz inváziójának lendülete derékba törik, amikor egy szörnyű vihar szétveri a flottáját. Alig húsz Őrült Lándzsással száll partra, így kénytelen az ereje helyett az eszére hagyatkozni és mielőbb új szövetségeseket találni a belháború küszöbén álló, idegen földön. A mágiájától megfosztott, fizikailag és lelkileg is megtört Lady Vlora Flint Szárazpart felé masírozik adrói serege élén, hogy bosszút álljon azokon, akik összeesküdtek ellene. Nem elég, hogy a szövetséges politikusok belülről gátolják erőfeszítéseit, még a hatalmas túlerővel és a danízok legnagyszerűbb tábornokával is szembe kell néznie… _A vér és lőpor istenei_-trilógia fergeteges fináléjában, A Birodalom vérében Brian McClellan eposzi csatajelenetekkel, váratlan csavarokkal és dörgő ágyútűzzel búcsúzik az utánozhatatlan Lőpormágus-univerzumtól.

An ​epic new fantasy series from Brian McClellan, set in the world of his wildly popular Powder Mage trilogy. _A world on the cusp of a new age..._ The young nation of Fatrasta is a turbulent place -- a frontier destination for criminals, fortune-hunters, brave settlers, and sorcerers seeking relics of the past.

Brian McClellan - Promise ​of Blood
It's ​a bloody business overthrowing a king... Field Marshal Tamas' coup against his king sent corrupt aristocrats to the guillotine and brought bread to the starving. But it also provoked war with the Nine Nations, internal attacks by royalist fanatics, and the greedy to scramble for money and power by Tamas's supposed allies: the Church, workers unions, and mercenary forces. It's up to a few... Stretched to his limit, Tamas is relying heavily on his few remaining powder mages, including the embittered Taniel, a brilliant marksman who also happens to be his estranged son, and Adamat, a retired police inspector whose loyalty is being tested by blackmail. But when gods are involved... Now, as attacks batter them from within and without, the credulous are whispering about omens of death and destruction. Just old peasant legends about the gods waking to walk the earth. No modern educated man believes that sort of thing. But they should...

Brian McClellan - The ​Mad Lancers
In ​the colonial cities and towns of Fatrasta, peace has never been easy. Immigrants fight amongst themselves or turn on the native population, while the governing power of the Kez Army steps in only to enforce the will of apathetic local governors assigned by a distant crown. Young war hero Ben Styke commands a colonial garrison in a sleepy frontier suburb.

Alek ​Fitz is the lead reaper for Valkyrie Collections, an agency that gathers debts for the paranormal elements of the world. Bound into modern-day slavery by a contract he cannot break, sold by parents he never knew, Alek works alongside demons, spirits, witches, and even Death himself to collect on deals made with humanity. When Alek is forced to take a job from a local vampire hunting down a run-away thrall, he is immediately thrust into a world of blackmail and backstabbing, where the Rules are nothing more than an inconvenience to ancient, supernatural predators. For the first time, Alek has more to fear from his clients than from his debtors. But Alek is the best in the business. It’ll take more than a Vampire Lord to keep a good reaper down.

Coming ashore with just twenty lancers, he is forced to rely on brains rather than brawn - gaining new allies in a strange land on the cusp of its own internal violence. Bereft of her sorcery and physically and emotionally broken, Lady Vlora Flint now marches on Landfall at the head of an Adran army seeking vengeance against those who have conspired against her. While allied politicians seek to undo her from within, she faces insurmountable odds and Dynize's greatest general.

Brian McClellan - A ​birodalom haragja
_A ​fegyverek szüntelen dörögnek, ha felizzik a birodalom haragja._ Fatrasztában káosz uralkodik. A főváros elesett, a lőpormágus Vlora Flint katonái a határvidék felé masíroznak – félmillió menekült követi őket a biztonság reményében. Csakhogy a háború elől lehetetlen elmenekülni, és az összecsapás vészesen közeleg, akár felkészültek, akár nem. Michel Bravis egyre több menekülőnek segít felszívódni és elhagyni a fővárost, ám rá kell döbbennie, hogy lassacskán minden oldalról ellenségek veszik körül. Talán pont azoktól az elnyomóktól kell segítséget kérnie, akiknek a hatalma ellen küzd, ezzel azonban nem csak a saját életét tenné kockára. Ezalatt Ben Styke ezredesre a legyőzhetetlennek hitt sárkányemberek egy különítménye vadászik, míg Őrült lándzsásai minden harcképes embert maguk köré gyűjtenek, hogy a daníz hódítókkal és a fatrasztai hadsereggel versenyt futva elsőként bukkanhassanak az egyik mérhetetlen hatalmú istenkő nyomára. Azonban korántsem biztos, hogy valóban az kerül a kezükbe, amit keresnek… Brian McClellan mesteri kézzel vegyíti az epikus csatajeleneteket intrikákkal és cselszövéssel, és építi tovább az utánozhatatlan Lőpormágus világot.

„Hiába ​az elsöprő túlerő – a lőpor és a vér legyőzhetetlen!” Fatraszta nem túl nyugodt hely: bűnözők, szerencsevadászok, vakmerő telepesek és az ősidők relikviái után kutató mágusok végső állomása a vadon kapujában.

Amikor egy ásatás során ősi, felfoghatatlan hatalmú monolitra bukkannak, a szárazparti vezetésnek rá kell döbbennie, hogy a lázongás volt a legkisebb problémája… Egy szenzációs új trilógia nyitánya a népszerű Lőpormágus-világban!

Brian McClellan - Vérrel ​írt ígéretek
„A ​királyok kora lejárt – és én fojtottam vérbe.” Tamás tábornagy királyellenes puccsa korrupt arisztokratákat küldött a guillotine alá, és éhezőket juttatott kenyérhez. Egyúttal azonban háborút provokált a Kilenc Nemzetekkel, és belső támadásokat a királyhű fanatikusok részéről. Közben Tamás állítólagos szövetségesei, az Egyház, a munkások szakszervezete és a zsoldoscsapatok között kapzsi hatalmi harcok törnek ki. Kifogyva a lehetőségekből, Tamás saját félelmetes lőpormágusi képességei mellett csak kevés bizalmasára támaszkodhat. Közülük leginkább saját elhidegült fiára, a megkeseredett Tánielre, aki briliáns lövész és lőpormágus, és Adamatra, egy nyugdíjazott rendőrfelügyelőre, akinek hűségét zsarolással teszik próbára. A külső és belső ellenség szorításában vergődve, felerősödnek a rémült suttogások pusztításról és halálról, és a földre visszatérő egykori istenekről. Persze, ezek csupán babonás vén parasztok legendái – modern, tanult emberek már nem hisznek az ilyesmiben. Pedig talán jobban tennék… A _Legjobb fantasy debütálás_, David Gemmell _Morningstar_ díjának nyertese 2014-ben.
