"Field Marshal Tamas returns to his beloved country to find that for the first time in history, the capital city of Adro lies in the hands of a foreign invader. His son is missing, his allies are indistinguishable from his foes, and reinforcements are several weeks away ... With the Kez still bearing down upon them and without clear leadership, the Adran army has turned against itself. Inspector Adamat is drawn into the very heart of this new mutiny with promises of finding his kidnapped son .. And Taniel Two-shot, hunted by men he once thought his friends, must safeguard the only chance Adro has of getting through this war without being destroyed"--Dust jacket flap.

Review of 'The autumn republic' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

3.5/5

With the previous book being a bit disappointing I was unsure how the last of the trilogy would end but it certainly pulled itself back together.

I still have some issues with the pacing at the start of the book but it really surprised me that it ended so well. I think the book really did a good job at concluding the series and tied up most of the loose ends, though I still have many questions.

I wish we had more information about the magic itself, it really didn’t expand much on that to my disappointment. But at least this book brought the focus back into the gods of the series, which was one of my major issues with the previous one.

Overall I think it was a good series and I enjoyed the story!

Note: This (spoiler-free) review is for the entire trilogy

This is more of a wartime series with magic than a fantasy series set in a war. Yes, there are epic magics at work, but at its core, this series is about the war, and the people taking part in it. Despite typically not enjoying wartime fiction, I really enjoyed this series. The writing is incredible, as are the characters and the several unique magic systems.

I've found that a little messiness is like manure on a field when you're trying to cultivate fear.

This was a satisfying ending to a really solid trilogy. I liked how the story used more of Nila (although I disliked her presence as a POV originally) and how the Adamat arc finally crossed back with others.

McClellan has created a really tight magic system with limitations and the mixture of Privileged and Powder Mages make a pretty formidable force. There is definitely more story that could have been covered but I liked that McClellan showed restraint and didn't overload the stories with details or explanations for how everything worked. I realize that there are side stories outside of this trilogy that McClellan has written and I may explore those if I want to dig deeper but I'm content for the story now.

However, if there was insight to Ka-Pole's …
