In Thunder Forged – The Fall of Llael: Book One is the first in a series of novels based on the award winning WARMACHINE, a steam based fantasy wargame, and the world of the Iron Kingdom role playing game. A mix of magic and mayhem, Marmell has created a novel that will appeal to both fans of the game and of the steampunk genre alike.
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.
