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.

    "Enjoyable story, great narration."

    The narrator's English accent is very pleasant and easy to understand for American listeners. It fits the setting of the story perfectly.

    "The Red Knight"

    The book and premise are good although is some parts it kind of hard to keep track of who their talking about at any given time. The premise is quite different from most epic fantasy books I have been use to. I'm Jordan, Sanderson fan. There are a few more but you get the idea.

    Story
    "Like Watching to a Music Video"

    Very tough to get into. The author switches from 2-3 dozen points of view randomly as the book starts. Sometimes from the "hero's" point and then to the villain and then on to a random village with a caged bear from the "wild" where you hear the events described from different points of view including the bear's view. Some of these switches are only a few sentences long. Many may be the one and only time that anything is told from that point of view.

    Despite the "I want this made into a movie" style of writing, the core storyline is not too bad. Typical quasi good vs quasi bad bad guys plot. You're well past 8 hours before you begin to pull out an overaching storyline. Up to that point it feels like you're just listening to random scenes. The 2nd half of the book (about 15 hrs) is basically a series of battles at different places and points of view.

    Debating whether to get the 2nd book. It if picked up in a similar fashion as the way book 1 ended, that would be OK. If it repeats the way the 1st one started, ugh.

    "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!

    Story
    "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.

    "Loved it"

    Great book. I love the authors other books but am not really a fantasy reader. This book changed that for me. I've already ordered the next two

    "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.
