Powder mage trilogy minireview 25. March 2015 Marius-Gheorghe books (0) So i've found about these books while procrastinating on r/fantasy on reddit. The premise looked interesting (flintlock fantasy FTW) so i gave the books a shot. And boooom. These are the best books i've read in last few years. Interesting set of characters, great world building and magic system on top a gripping story. But the thing that was most impressive to me was the pacing. This trilogy has expert pacing. Really, once the story has its hooks into you, it's really hard to let go :) I highly recommend these books to anyone. Also if you read them, they are a few published short stories set in the same universe as the "main books". I've read all of them , they are pretty good but i highly recommend reading at least "Fornsworn" and "Servant of the crown".
