Notes: The first of a new line of Iron Kingdoms novels.
As with my other tie-in work, I did my best to make this book accessible to people who are not already familiar with the propery. I can’t promise you’ll get every reference, but I do believe that you should be able to read and understand the story without substantial difficulty. Just in case, though, an appendix describing the details of the nations and world of the Iron Kingdoms is included.
In Thunder Forged is the first of the Fall of Llael trilogy, which in itself is the first portion of a larger series. Release date is early June, 2013.
The Iron Kingdoms are at war—a war fought with machine guns and magic, knights of valor, and earth-shaking titans of steam and steel. And now that war may hinge entirely on nothing more than a sheaf of papers.
An alchemical formula, stolen by an ally they thought they could trust, could cost the brave soldiers of Cygnar everything. Their only hope: a cunning spy, a knight out of her element, and a frighteningly small unit of the best that Cygnar has to offer.
Arrayed against them is not only a single, devious enemy, but the combined intelligence apparatus—and possibly the full military might—of the most brutal martial power Cygnar has ever known.
