    One thought on “Return to Honor”

    1. *** 3 ***Short and sweet. We get to learn more about Vlora from her POV. It actually made me feel a bit sorry for her

    2. 2.5 Another novella set in the Powder Mage universe. I normally like these novellas and feel that they do a lot to develop the characters and setting but this was by far my least favourite. That might be due to the fact that I read it in the middle of "The Autumn Republic" for some reason and I found the plot to be much slower and less engaging in comparison (this might be due to knowing pretty much what was going to happen based on the events of book 2). It might also be due to the fact that th [...]

    3. Another short story of Vlora, as The Girl of Hrusch Avenue, taking place between Promise of Blood & The Crimson Campaign. Nothing really special about this story, but it offers some hints about the rest of the story (Olem's rifle jackets, etc), so it's worth reading.Ps. I do not rate short stories.

    4. Another short little volume set in the world of the Powder Mage series. This story follows Vlora, the young Powder Mage who has fallen out of favor with Tamas and the army. Thanks to her ill-conceived affair with a nobleman shortly before the events in Promise of Blood no one will have anything to do with her. Tamas is hurt because Vlora jilted his son, and the army's sympathies are with their beloved general.Vlora is given a mission to capture the commander of the traitorous church leader's gua [...]

    5. A solid little tale that focuses on character but it still kinda rubbed me the wrong me, but that's just me.World: The world is just a stage for this little tale, it takes place right after Promise of Blood so if you've read the book you will feel comfortable in the world. If not you need to read it first I feel.Story: Very character driven. One of the issues I had with 'Promise of Blood' is that it promised these character moments and deeper development and then it got tossed aside by the huge [...]

    6. I'm really glad I got this. It's been a while since I read the first book & I was worried that I'd forgotten too much to really enjoy the second as an audio, but I found this & it all came back. It's a novelette with just a couple of characters. Well done & read.

    7. Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes Immediately following the event from the first book in the Powder Mage series, Promise of Blood, one of the surprisingly good series I've started this year, this was a very nice, albeit short return to the Powder Mage universe.If you enjoyed Promise of Blood you will most likely like this story, since it had the same vibe to it. I was really glad that I read it and it made me want to continue the series even more. I was already planning on reading the [...]

    8. Nestled right in between the first two books of the trilogy, this quick story shows off a couple of fun things. There's Verundish, a reoccurring character in a couple of stories, and she has a line about her price that ties into the main storyline with a wink and a nod. There's Vlora and Olem, getting to know each other and starting their relationship. There's Vlora as a POV character, which will be fun to see more of. And there's the regular stuff too: guns, sword fights, searching the city for [...]

    9. Interesantna pričica ali u suštini skoro ničemu ne doprinosu sve ukupnoj priči. Plus glavni lik je neko koga baš i ne mirišem u glavnom srijalu.Ako ste ljubitelj powder mage sveta onda vredi baciti pogled ali za svako drugog nema šta da traži.

    10. Even as much of a sucker as I am for these, this one failed to keep my attention too long, and felt a bit anemic.

    11. 2.5 / 5 This is a short story related to McClellan's Powder Mage series and it takes places somewhere between the 1st and 2nd book. The main characters are Vlora and Olem and we get to know a little bit more about them.Plot-wise the story felt a bit weak. The setup feels a bit uninteresting and the resolution cheap and not completely justified. At the same time though, McClellan's writing is sharp and interesting as always. It's smooth and easy to read and turn pages and I felt that this was the [...]

    12. My very first thought on Return to Honor is that I definitely enjoyed it.Return to Honor is a straight forward story that takes place in between Promise of Blood and The Crimson Campaign. Field Marshal Tamas gives Vlora a solo mission to track down a prielight guard who worked for Charelmund and has information that exposes Adran plans and numbers. (view spoiler)[Shortly into the story we see Colonel Verundish and Olem. Verundish appears only briefly, but Olem is an integral part of the story. I [...]

    13. When I started reading ‘Return to Honor’ I expected it to improve my opinion on Vlora, and it certainly helped me to understand Vlora better and feel her pain at the mistake she made. I think what shocked me the most was that almost every single soldier in the army turned on Vlora after learning about her cheating on Taniel. As Vlora herself said, Taniel’s family and closest friends had a right for it, but the fact she had not a single friend left hurt me deeply. Vlora’s relationship wit [...]

    14. At long last, a short story about Vlora - who was the first character I read about in Brian McClellan's Powder Mage series. I read a short story of Vlora when she was a child - and was a little disappointed at her lack of involvement within the story to date.This story sees Vlora on a mission to restore her honor to the army and Tamas. This needs to be read between book 2 and 3, as it follows on from events at the end of book 2 and may have some impact on book 3. Will she restore her honor? Or i [...]

    15. Set immediately after the events of Brian McClellan first novel, Promise of Blood, Return to Honor focuses on the beginning of the redemption of Captain Vlora, a non-POV character from the first two books of the trilogy. The story is around the length of a couple of chapters in one of the larger novels, and is entirely focused on Vlora's efforts to complete a mission before she will be allowed to head back to the front and hopefully rejoin the rest of Field Marshal Tamas' powder cabal. While not [...]

    16. This was a short, but nice story featuring Vlora and Olem that takes place between the first two Powder Mage novels. Vlora as a character doesn't feel very fleshed out in the novels, so I liked being able to read a story from her perspective. (view spoiler)[I still don't really like her as a character, though. The only regret she seems to feel for cheating on Taniel seems to be for how she has lost the respect of her colleagues, not for how she hurt someone she claimed to care for. It still feel [...]

    17. The short story "Return to Honor" follows our not so close friend Vlora immediately after the events of Promise of Blood. The story was great, the mystery/investigation aspect of it was immensely enjoyable. The action was extremely well done, and getting to see a little bit more of our secondary main characters in Vlora and Olem was good stuff. While I still love Olem and see a lot of myself in him if I'm honest. And I did really like getting to know Vlors a little more, but there were still bit [...]

    18. Grand wee story with Vlora, who should be ashamed I'd not have cheated on Taniel yeah, yeah he's a fictional character but still, I would and his father shh now and Olem, Tamas' cheeky bodyguard racing to stop a naughty man from running off with state secrets to the naughty enemy.I think we need more Vlora flesh her out a little more, we've had this one and her as a wee child but all we really know about her is that she cheated on my Taniel ahem on Taniel and she's really nifty with the bullets. [...]

    19. I didn't especially liked Vlora at the beginning of the series but, by the end of it, I certainly understood her better. This story takes place after the first book in the trilogy as she tries to complete an assignment that could begin to repair her relationship with Tamas. It also explains how she met Olem. I always liked him, especially his relationship with Tamas. The story was well written, but it didn't give me any more insight into the characters. I enjoyed it nonetheless. Good for the fan [...]

    20. How does McClellan do it? I don't even LIKE short stories and yet I can't stop reading what he puts out in between the full length books in this series. As usual this is so short that I can't talk about the story without revealing spoilers, so I won't. If you're looking at this review then you're either already reading this series and know how good these shorts are or you're a friend of mine who damn well ought to be reading this series.

    21. I don't think I have any notable complaints about this short. Most impressive, I think, was Vlora's tone, her voice. She definitely reads differently from Taniel, Tamas, and Adamat - the boys of The Powder Mage series. I wouldn't call her tone feminine, because that carries some baggage from our own society, but she reads softer. More internal, I think. I am happy with it.

    22. Story mainly of Vlora doing some detective work with the help of Olem I find it could have been nice to read it just after Promise of Blood, bridges a few plot holes between the books that are glossed over in the The Crimson Campaign nothing really substantial but honestly I think it would fit better to read it during the main trilogy read. However, it's still quite alright to read it after! You don't miss much, in the end it's mainly a ramification from the main plot

    23. The last of the Powder Mage short stories at least until McClellan decides for more (please do!) within his next trilogy. Interestingly, Return to Honor is Vlora based as is his new series, Sins of Empire. In this novella, we learn a little more about Vlora and get a feel for her character. Still can't say I am a big fan of her hopefully that changes when I get to Sins of Empire. Olem also shows up here and he is also good for a chuckle and some action. 4 stars and must read for the Powder Mage [...]

    24. The final story of In the Field Marshal's Shadow takes place between the first and second Powder Mage novels. This one follows the character of Vlora after she fell from grace with Tamas and is sent on a redemption-seeking mission.

    25. Not bad, but I found it lacking something Maybe I was spoiled by the greatness of Sanderson's short stories :)

    26. Oh Vlora, all I wanna do is hug you :( You didn't deserve such poor treatment and Tamas is a selfish prick. Olem <3

    27. Return to Honor is set between Promise of Blood and The Crimson Campaign and follows Captain Vlora in her pursuit of a guard captain who has escaped the events at the end of Promise of Blood and the mission she is assigned is seen as a way for her to begin to redeem herself in the eyes of her fellows! :DThe story slots neatly into the gap between the two books and also helped to set up a lot of the characterisation and to deepen things and events that we see in The Crimson Campaign! :D We also g [...]
