The Red Knight | [Miles Cameron]

The Red Knight

Twenty-eight florins a month is a huge price to pay for a man to stand between you and the Wild. Twenty-eight florins a month is nowhere near enough when a wyvern's jaws snap shut on your helmet in the hot stink of battle, and the beast starts to rip the head from your shoulders. But if standing and fighting is hard, leading a company of men - or worse, a company of mercenaries - against the smart, deadly creatures of the Wild is even harder. It takes all the advantages of birth, training, and the luck of the devil to do it.

Publisher's Summary

Twenty-eight florins a month is a huge price to pay for a man to stand between you and the Wild.

Twenty-eight florins a month is nowhere near enough when a wyvern's jaws snap shut on your helmet in the hot stink of battle, and the beast starts to rip the head from your shoulders. But if standing and fighting is hard, leading a company of men - or worse, a company of mercenaries - against the smart, deadly creatures of the Wild is even harder.

It takes all the advantages of birth, training, and the luck of the devil to do it.

The Red Knight has all three, he has youth on his side, and he's determined to turn a profit. So when he hires his company out to protect an Abbess and her nunnery, it's just another job. The abbey is rich, the nuns are pretty, and the monster preying on them is nothing he can't deal with.

Only it's not just a job. It's going to be a war....

The Red Knight is the first book of The Traitor Son Cycle.

    "Great read... or listen!"

    Great story and narration. the narrator did a good job of distinguishing between characters. I really enjoy how the different characters' stories slowly progress toward each other throughout the book. Can't wait to listen to the next one!

    "Fantastic details, Good character depth"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Red Knight to be better than the print version?

    This book is great. I would say one of my favorites for sure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mag the seamstress I find to be very amusing for here old lady nagging and solid advice.


    What about Matthew Wolf’s performance did you like?

    The reader did a great job of making you feel as if they are very differentiated.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were not any gut wrenching moments in this book it was an even read but that did not take from its quality.


    Any additional comments?

    The book has great detail in small thing but its not overdone like in some books where they describe a sunset for a page.

    Story
    "Eh...Knight"

    I'm a pretty picky in my criticism of audiobooks. I demand three dimensional characters, a good plot, good writing and of course an above average narrator to tie it all together.

    While Red Knight showed promise in many of these areas, I don't like having to pay a "price"
    or "premium" of "getting through the first 10 hours" to appreciate a story. I demand to be ensconced in the story throughout most of the book.

    The narration was probably the best part of this fantasy story. The battle scenes were done well, but after a while, I kept asking myself whether I cared if the bad guys just killed everyone. Unfortunately, my answer was...No, I don't care.

    Great weave of characters and very engaging story. The author expertise in armor and medieval weaponry is evident. Looking forward to number three this July.

    Story
    "Wanted to like it"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narration was fine.


    What could Miles Cameron have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The story was too disjointed. In part due to the constant shifting of viewpoint to different characters. Neither character nor storyline came together. I did not feel any attachment to any single character. Lots of interesting pieces too many threads started and not connected. Do not kill off the most interesting characters.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Well written. Lots of great ideas.


    Any additional comments?

    There is plenty of fighting and many colorful characters too many in fact. Some seem to have no purpose. Too many questions unanswered like what is the wild? Is magic good or bad? How does religion fit in? What is the difference between magics? How is it relevant to this world?

    "So scattered"

    Made it 6 hours and I didn't care about any of the characters or the storyline. Pass this one by.
