The Shadow Campaign Series
The Shadow Campaign books are generally viewed as low on fantasy when contrasted with different series and books. However, the supernatural component is positively included in its universe.
The first book of the series, The Thousand Names, focuses a lot on military ability and one can without much of a stretch tell that Wexler has truly invested his efforts in comprehending warfare in the Napoleonic time. The fight scenes in these books are striking and completely figured it out. The two principle characters have been created superbly. The female characters in the story are elegantly composed as well. They are given some rather unfortunate back stories that don’t include the sexual assault cliché.
Colonel Janus is a magnificent knave, and his astute arrangements for triumph really appear to be conceivable. The Colonel is sort of a virtuoso of as a military officer, with Captain Marcus d’Ivoire being a skilled sidekick. These characters are all very pleasurable together; however there are times when the element between the two is overexerted.
The second book focuses on legislative issues in the place of war. It is much more interesting than the first book, yet it likewise offers a considerable measure more suspense and exhilaration so the equalization is decent. If you like the first book, you may be shocked at the sudden change of tone and set in the second. When you get readjusted, in any case, you will most likely appreciate the book hugely.

Magic comes at a premium. If you’re searching for a crisp feeling fantasy setting and story, make certain to read the Shadow Campaigns.
One striking feedback about this series is that Wexler invests a great deal of energy discussing how the two groups from Vordonai were either essentially novices or crude volunteers. In any case, when all was said and done, they found themselves able to be a really powerful unit in spite of not requiring a lot of training.
