Liaden: Necessity's Child
The kompani sees none as enemy, and yet few as friend, existing in many places, living quietly in the shadows, thriving off the bounty that others have no wit to secure, nor skill to defend. Their private history is unwritten; their recall rooted in dance and dream. Clan Korval is in many ways the opposite: wealthy in enemies, fortunate in friends, protecting itself with vigor, and teaching even its youngest children the art of war. When representatives of Clan Korval arrive on the planet Surebleak where the kompani has lived secret and aloof, it seems to the kompani that they are borne by the very winds of change, and their plans may bring catastrophe, changing the culture, and the kompani, forever. There, the lives of three people intersect: Kezzi, apprentice to the kompani's grandmother; Syl Vor, Clan Korval's youngest warrior; and Rys, a man without a world, or a past.

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.
