Having survived another death-defying battle, Davrick hopes he might finally get a chance to rest easy. But word soon arrives of a major Resistance defeat at the hands of the Grand Imperium’s relentless legions. Those not killed have been taken to the enemy’s most notorious death camp—among them, Sid’s younger sister, the brilliant analytical engineer, Adara Voltelion. Setting off once more in their trusty ornithopter, Davrick, Sid, and Talyaana join up with the last remnants of the Resistance—a bedraggled logistics unit of absent-minded gearmeisters and war-weary soldiers.
But Sid and the other gearmeisters devise a plan not only to liberate the prisoners, but to steal the Imperium’s most vital military codes. Facing a legion of armored war-trolls, battle-trained sorcerers, and machine-augmented soldiers, Davrick wonders if any of them will escape the siege alive. And how is Sid even related to the gutsy girl leading the charge to capture the fortress’s thundering analytical engine?
Gearmeister Siege is the third novella of the six-part Siege Chronicles.
