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.

This was a really excellent book. From character development to buildup and ending. Completely engrossing.
Extremely enjoyable new series that entertained and left me eagerly waiting for more. I guarantee you won't regret adding this to your library if you're a fan of fantasy. I look forward to seeing where the series goes from here!
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!
This book is great. I would say one of my favorites for sure.
Mag the seamstress I find to be very amusing for here old lady nagging and solid advice.
The reader did a great job of making you feel as if they are very differentiated.
There were not any gut wrenching moments in this book it was an even read but that did not take from its quality.
The book has great detail in small thing but its not overdone like in some books where they describe a sunset for a page.
Very well done, only negative thing to say is that you will tired of hearing so and so shrugged.
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.
not the genre, but the rest of the book, the series, and maybe the author
overall, I liked his reading. But he does make awkwardly long pauses.
With the wack-jobs we have making decisions about such things, yeah probably
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.
