The Red Knight Audiobook

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.

    "The Red Knight vs the Army of Darkness …& scary Monsters"
    What did you love best about The Red Knight?

    The sheer fearful and down right scary aspect of the "Wild" and it's unending hoard of monsters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Red Knight?

    That very VERY creepy and self absorbed a-hole of a knight burning down the Inn. Boy, I can't wait till he gets killed by the Red Knight!


    Which character – as performed by Matthew Wolf – was your favorite?

    All were fine, and well done. No harsh or strained voices. a very good reader.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the ex-wench was knighted. I got all misty eyed. a great, unexpected, and very warm moment. This shows, while writing gore and horror, the author remembers to write a tale with heart, and love.


    Any additional comments?

    A great huge epic of a tale, about heroic knights fighting against seemingly unstoppable and horrific army of hideous monsters. This had creatures you could find in a science fiction or a horror story, yet it held tightly to it's fantasy genre by the author's knowledge of medieval weaponry, armor, and warfare. Very well done!

    "It's just ok"

    I love fantasy and with children I rarely have time to read anymore. So I love listening to books while doing mundane tasks. but even they take some attention. That being said this book was full of action but lacking in plot. For me without a good plot all the action is senseless. Most of the characters were descent but it to me was to black and white. I found my self drifting off far to much, mostly because I realized if I did I wouldn't miss out on really anything of importance. To me the over chivalry was a bit taxing as well. it wasn't horrible but it was very far from the best and I have been through well over a hundred fantasy books. it won't be something I remember nor will it be something I'd listen or read again. But I will get the next book not so much out of curiosity but because unless it's terrible I like to finish what I start in book series.

    "Excellent, some of Fantasy's Best"

    This book is excellent, well-written, and a true pleasure to read. It will leave you wanting more. The second book, The Fell Sword, is even better. I am counting down the days until the third book is released in October 2015.

    "Excellent listen!"

    Great story that might-considering what can be done with computer graphics, make an action packed movie. Thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    "great novel incredible descriptions"

    I can safely say that I have found a new author to keep my eye on. Miles Cameron has provided us with a very solid series starter. This book has a complex plot with well developed characters, who seem to come alive as the story goes on. The thing that stands out about this book is the author's description of every intricate aspect of midevil life. I especially enjoyed his descriptions of all of the weapons and armor portrayed in the novel. I will warn perspective readers that the novel does change view points very rapidly, but I felt the change was smooth and didn't interrupt the flow of the story. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and this might be challenging if one is not paying proper attention to the story, but if one has the focus this is a great and complex novel. There is much violence, maybe a bit too much, but the scenes are well drawn out and the gore is very vividly described, if you like that kind of thing. Finally, the narrator did a fantastic job, especially with differentiating the many different characters. Overall, this book is definitely worth buying and I have already bought the second novel.
