War breaks out in the Iron Kingdoms as the armies of Cygnar and Khador clash. When an alchemical formula is stolen by a supposed ally of Cygnar, an elite group of operatives, including a gun mage of unsurpassed skill, a Storm Knight unused to working with foot soldiers, a beautiful and deadly spy, and a small team of elite, battle-hardened soldiers and their warjacks-lethal machines whose secrets designs are now in danger-risk their lives to rescue the formula. VERDICT In the first novel written for the award-winning WARMACHINE fantasy war game as well as the Iron Kingdoms role-playing game, Marmell (Darksiders: The Abomination Vault) sets a tone that combines flash and action with solid characterization and clever humor. Marmell's characters are memorable and compelling, and his creativity and originality within the steampunk fantasy genre makes him a remarkable storyteller. This one is a keeper. (c) Copyright 2013.
