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 Fantasy!

Cameron creates an awesome world, with compelling characters and great adventures. The mark of a good fantasy series for me is wanting to play an RPG set in that world.... and boy would I!

I was hoping this book would be good

Would you ever listen to anything by Miles Cameron again?

Probably not.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Had a lot of details about medieval society.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Frustration.

Any additional comments?

The plot (if you want to call it that) was just TOO SLOW! I kept waiting for it to pick up & it never did. Even the "action" scenes didn't have much life to them. There are also too many characters with very little substance to them. So you aren't into them. I'm giving up on the work since it just isn't holding my interest.

BORING

Way to slow and incredibly dull, I just couldn't get into it. The story also jumped around way too much from one random thing to another. Two thumbs way way down from me.

Good story but ....

I liked the story, I do, but I felt let down by the narrator. Sometimes he was quite good but at often he has an annoying cadence ams or he was very flat.
