Praise

“If The Thousand Names had echoes of “Beau Geste” and “The White Feather,” then The Shadow Throne suggests a mutant fantasy descendant of “The Scarlet Pimpernel.”  Oh, and did I mention a truly creepy and intriguing magic system? […] The pieces dance, the pace is deft, and I can’t wait to see what happens next!”—S.M. Stirling, New York Times bestselling author 

“Can I finally say The Shadow Campaigns is one of my favorite fantasy series out right now? Certainly my favorite military fantasy. I knew from the very start that The Thousand Names would be a tough act to follow and that book two would have big shoes to fill, but The Shadow Throne was no slouch; it delivered exactly what I wanted to see in the sequel – raised stakes, impactful decisions that furthered the plot, and of course, more of Wexler’s outstanding characters.”—Bibliosanctum.com

The Shadow Throne is an extremely successful second-in-a-series book, and nearly perfect one in that regard. Wexler takes the characters we know from the previous volume and puts them in challenging situations which allows them to grow along the track charted in the first novel, with some surprises as well. It is a novel that, a week after finishing it, still has me thinking strongly about it, realizing upon reflection how very good it was/is, and anticipating the third book in the series.”—SFFWorld.com
 
“This audacious and subversive sequel to 2013’s The Thousand Names shifts from the previous book’s military campaign into a political intrigue that examines issues ranging from gender identity to the development of democracy…Wexler throws a lot into the story, but the mash-up of 17th-century technology and demon-summoning assassins comes together nicely.” – Publishers Weekly

“This is an immensely entertaining novel.”—Tor.com
