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.

    "I Loved this Book!"

    I bought this book because it was on sale. I was pleasantly surprised to find a new author and his characters to love. May I have some more, please? The story was so well written that I cried at the funeral of the Mother Superior. I even cryed when the Red Knight's horse was killed. I cared about the characters. I hurt, struggled and triumped when they did. The narrator had perfect delivery. He went from an ancient nun to a rowdy solidier seamlessly. I laughed at the rough soldier humor and cringed when they cussed in front of the nuns. I really appreciate a villian that is written sympathetically and a hero that is written with a dark side. It makes the story so much more interesting. I really had doubts how this would end. At any time it could have gone several ways. If you enjoy swords, knights, and fantasy then you will enjoy this book.

    "WOW!"

    Hard, gritty fantasy at it's best. It's Bernard Cornwell meets HP Lovecraft with some the best medieval warfare scenes warfare scenes I've ever read. If you like Joe Abercrombie or are looking for something new now that the Wheel of Time has ended, you might like this.

    "Brilliant find!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Red Knight the most enjoyable?

    Wonderful voice and compelling story.


    What about Matthew Wolf’s performance did you like?

    Brilliant reading. Wonderful voices and one of the best readers I've heard.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes...


    Any additional comments?

    The transitions are a bit jarring at first... the author writes in tiny chunks and jumps a lot between characters. But once you settle into this... it carries you away!

    Story
    "To busy."

    This book was entertaining but there were to many stories going on at the same time. It became hard to follow the characters. I think there was at least 12 storylines going on at the same time. The author brought it together for a satisfactory close but it was at time hard to follow. The story would tell you about a character and then it would go on to half a dozen other characters before going back to that character so it took to much brain power to try to remember what was going on in the story with the original character from six stories back.
