Raingun (Book #1, The Talan Revolt)
Rick Rivoire protects his country as one of the Rainguns, an elite regiment of spellcasting cavalry. But the nation drifts into tyranny and slavery. Joining a rebellion could land Rick on the same gallows where he watched his father hang.
Rick can’t stay above the fray forever. He must defend an aristocracy whose actions disgust him --- or risk everything he has.
