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.

    "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.

    I've been into epic fantasy, sci-fi and everything in between since I first read The Lord of the Rings. I also love detective novels.

    "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.

    Story
    "1st book is good but goes downhill from there"
    Would you listen to The Red Knight again? Why?

    Yes.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything. The problem I have with the series is that it is too compressed. Magic wielders who have had limited abilities for years or decades all the sudden find there powers increased 20 fold in a matter of weeks or months. It felt forced...as if the author had an outcome and had to get to it within a year or two of book time. Not even buying the fourth book


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointed in the series. Have never enjoyed a first book and then developed no desire to read the last book before.

    "Chapters cut short"

    Don't know what I'm missing but a bunch of these sentences are cut short and it moves to next chapter

    "Excellent"

    Magic system was well explained but still left mystery, combat was exceptional, lots of small stories within stories that came together beautifully in the end. Buying the second book after I finish.
