McClellan, Brian  
Powder Mage #1: Promise of Blood
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 a scramble for money and power by his supposed allies: the Church, workers unions, and mercenary forces. 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. As attacks batter them from within and without, the credulous are whispering about old peasant legends, about the gods waking to walk the earth. No modern educated man believes that sort of thing. But they should.
