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
