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.

    "A bit long"

    The battle scenes were too numerous and became a bit repetitive. I would've given it four stars but for that.

    "A Great Book"
    If you could sum up The Red Knight in three words, what would they be?

    This was a really excellent book. From character development to buildup and ending. Completely engrossing.

    "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
    "Get your OWN religion"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. Let me start by saying, I'm NOT a Christian. But it's the religious aspect of this book that has made stop listening. I have not finished the 1st download, and I will not download the rest. I feel like this author is a good writer and story teller. I like his style and would love finish the book. But for all his creativity, he couldn't be bothered to create his own religion like any other author would have. I'm cool with calling your god " God ". But, he refers to The virgin, and the Christ, and he uses our own constellations, Aries, Taurus, etc. the holy priests are magic users who draw pentagrams and pray, not only to god and Jesu, but to the constellations as well as they perform their spells. If you have even the faintest belief or respect for the bible, then this book will make you fear a lightning strike. My belief in the god of the bible is usually subject to the day of the week. but this author's absolute disrespect for believers in Christ is just that, disrespectful. Try mangling the Quran in your next book and see how that flies.
    P.S. if you don't care about what I've said, then I DO recommend the book. I was intrigued and I am curious to know how the series plays out. But I never will.


    Has The Red Knight turned you off from other books in this genre?

    not the genre, but the rest of the book, the series, and maybe the author


    What about Matthew Wolf’s performance did you like?

    overall, I liked his reading. But he does make awkwardly long pauses.


    Could you see The Red Knight being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    With the wack-jobs we have making decisions about such things, yeah probably

    "Enjoying read"

    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.
