As the “audacious and subversive”* Shadow Campaigns novels continue, the weather is growing warmer, but the frosty threat of Vordan’s enemies is only growing worse...
As the roar of the guns subsides and the smoke of battle clears, the country of Vordan is offered a fragile peace…
After their shattering defeats at the hands of brilliant General Janus bet Vhalnich, the opposing powers have called all sides to the negotiating table in hopes of securing an end to the war. Queen Raesinia of Vordan is anxious to see the return of peace, but Janus insists that any peace with the implacable Sworn Church of Elysium is doomed to fail. For their Priests of the Black, there can be no truce with heretics and demons they seek to destroy, and the war is to the death.
Soldiers Marcus d’Ivoire and Winter Ihernglass find themselves caught between their general and their queen. Now, each must decide which leader truly commands their loyalty—and what price they might pay for final victory.
And in the depths of Elysium, a malign force is rising—and defeating it might mean making sacrifices beyond anything they have ever imagined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Couldn't Stop Reading!!! Wow. Just... WOW. Okay, where do I start with this one? Like every other book before it, THE GUNS OF THE EMPIRE excels in literally every aspect. The story is strong, emotional, and gut-wrenching at the end. The characters are memorable, layered, and incredibly brave. The women are hardcore and not scared to throw down and completely own all the coolest moments. The action is pulse-pounding and you can't help but bite your nails to get to the next page to see who makes it out alive. And this time, not everyone does. I honestly couldn't stop reading and have been gushing about this book and the series to all of my friends and family. It's unique, thrilling, intense, and not something anyone who likes military fantasy, fantasy, or compelling stories with big twists and hair-pulling endings ought to miss. I honestly have to force myself to step back and take a breather so I remember to work because if I don't, I'll keep reading all day just to see how it ends. Honestly, if you don't think this kind of book is for you, it is. Do not miss this series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flintlock Fantasy Another great entry into Django Wexler's Shadow Campaigns. Wexler continues to get the mix right between military action and political intrigue. It was nice to finally get some information on the demons & magic of the world. It might come off as a bit of an infodump to some readers but after four books it feels fine. Can't wait for the finale.

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
