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.

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.

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.

Magnificent!

This book had me hooked from start to finish. Unforgettable characters and don't even get me started on the battles. Highly detailed and I could see them in my mind. Miles Cameron is definitely a new favorite of mine.

pretty good story

Although quite a bit of new points of views from different characters it was still good... Because of all the jumping around on both the map and from person to person it makes it hard to follow and keep straight as you listen. The narrator is a very fast speaker and doesn't give that much of a pause in between thoughts.

Enjoyable story, great narration.

The narrator's English accent is very pleasant and easy to understand for American listeners. It fits the setting of the story perfectly.
