Publisher's Summary

Miles Cameron weaves a tale of magic and depravity in the sequel to The Red Knight.

Loyalty costs money.

Betrayal, on the other hand, is free.

When the Emperor is taken hostage, the Red Knight and his men find their services in high demand - and themselves surrounded by enemies. The country is in revolt, the capital city is besieged, and any victory will be hard won. But the Red Knight has a plan.

The question is, can he negotiate the political, magical, real, and romantic battlefields at the same time - especially when he intends to be victorious on them all?

    "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.

    Story
    "Watch Out GRRM!! Great Protagonist & Not Dead, Yet"

    This is an excellent 2nd book to continue 'The Traitor Son Cycle' series after the solo debut novel "The Red Knight.' Anyone whose wondering why the story received 4 stars while the overall was given 5? The only real issue I had with this book was that small parts could be predictable at times BUT besides GRRM who could potentially rip your heart out while reading the 'GoT' series. It seems GRRM loves taking a character you love & believed was one of a handful of protagonists dies quite viciously similar to humans swatting flies lol.

    Fantasy books no matter the caliber of author all tend to have a degree of predictability, certain tropes, & characters that fall into similar categories. Cameron is able to write an incredible story containing an assortment of commonly used fantasy pieces often spread between separate books & authors, but able to incorporate a cohesive tale so far in 2 books of the series. The complex themes & persona's include: medieval themes, knights, archers, beautiful princesses, mages/warlocks, clerics, weapons containing magical properties, all sorts of kick-ass, monsters such as dragons-wyverns-giants-golden bears-fairies-demons even gods, court intrigue containing the backstabbing & conspiracies that absolute power attracts, plus a few unknown powers that have not entirely been revealed.

    The magical system structure is well thought out & those who possess this ability perpetuate both power & destruction within the real world while in the 'ethereal' plane they manipulate diff. types of energy/mana against each other similar to a game of chess. Those with faith can heal thru the gift of worshiped deity's & above them all are the unique class of warrior, both having prowess in hand to hand combat & casting of magic power. This sequel was at the same level of entertainment value as 'The Red Knight' IMO & perhaps even better due an overall picture of this world familiar in histories yet unique in regards to custom & universal laws.

    I would HIGHLY suggest spending a credit & read the next installment of this captivating book that bludgeons you back to "hardcore" fantasy woven tales. Narration is above average, I could find little to complain about that doesn't occur at a point in all novels of this genre. Miles Cameron made me forget about GRRM's slow progress & along with other 2014 releases to come I see a great year to come.

    "not quite a sophomore slump"

    Let me start by saying that this was not a bad novel, it just wasn't as good as the first one. Most of the novel was very intriguing with a strong if not slightly scattered plot. The problem was the end for me, it just seemed rather anticlimactic. It was too simple and predictable with no really impressive twists. Also, after the weak climax the ending of the novel was rather abrupt and left a few threads hanging. On the strong side it looks like everything is set for a great third novel and I am very excited to read it. AS with the first novel the descriptions of the midevil life were superb and the character development was also well done. What really disappointed me about this performance was the narrator. He changed several pronunciations he used in the first novel, whitch was very jarring. Also, some of his voices were different from the first novel, whitch confused me for a bit. Despite my complaints about this book it was still very good, but not the great series starter the first book was. I am still very excited for the next installment.

    "Great book!"

    This sequel did not disappoint! The only problem I had was the story would sometimes make large leaps forward in time that would take just a few moments to realize what was going on.

    Miles, write faster!

    No crying, some laughter.

    The magic system and the mixed historical world view are very interesting.

    "Phenomenal!"

    The battle scenes may not have been as gruesome as those in The Red Knight, but still a phenomenal work nevertheless! Well recommended! Thank you Mr. Cameron

    "Little slow beginning but picks up"

    This sequel is a little less focused than the last book, but there are some interesting characters added.
