Book Review — Promise of Blood (The Powder Mage #1) by Brian McClellan

Promise of Blood (The Powder Mage, #1)Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you’ve a fan of cool magic, this is the book for you.

What’s not to love about flintlock fantasy, where mages can control the gunpowder directly?

For a first novel, it of course had the usual gripes about character development and pacing, but you know what? That doesn’t matter because the potential is there, and it’s obvious to see.

The craft will only improve with time—Brian McClellan definitely has all the intangible bits of this whole writing shindig down pat. Once it all clicks, I’m telling you, it’s going to be epic.

I am excited to read more from this promising debut author!
