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.

    "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.

    "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.
