This is book number 3 in the The Shadow Campaigns series.
In the third Shadow Campaigns novel, Django Wexler continues his “epic fantasy of military might and magical conflict,” (Library Journal) following The Shadow Throne and The Thousand Names.
After the king’s death, war has come to Vordan. The Deputies-General, led by a traitor-seeking zealot, has taken control. Queen Raesinia Orboan is nearly powerless as the government tightens its grip and assassins threaten her life. Unwilling to see the country come under another tyranny, she sets out to turn the tide of history.
As the Sworn Church brings the powers of the continent to war against Vordan, General Janus bet Vhalnich offers a path to victory. Winter Ihernglass, newly promoted to command a regiment, has reunited with her lover and her friends only to face the prospect of leading them into bloody battle.
And the enemy is not just armed with muskets and cannon. Dark priests of an ancient order, wielding forbidden magic, have infiltrated Vordan to stop Janus by whatever means necessary...

Praise for The Shadow Campaigns
“Wexler has produced something unusual in the fantasy line, with a setting reminiscent of the early Victorian period, out on the bleeding edge of Empire, a world of dust and bayonets and muskets...and magic...I read it at a gulp and look forward to more.”—S.M. Stirling, New York Times bestselling author of the Novels of the Change
“Highly entertaining…mixes elements of Bernard Cornwell-esque military adventure with an original take on magic and keen eye for action, dialogue and character.”—Anthony Ryan, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Waking Fire
“Marvellously written, ingeniously conceived, and great fun.”—Simon R. Green, New York Times Bestselling Author of Dr. DOA
"Wexler's storytelling and characterization are top-notch, but he's really in command when the battles arrive...Gritty, brutal, and yet wonderfully intimate, The Thousand Names is exceptional military fantasy."—Jason M. Hough, New York Times bestselling author of Zero World
