Book Description

Oct. 25 2012
This is a world dominated by The Wild. Man lives in pockets of civilisation claimed from The Wild. Within men's walls life is civilised, the peace punctuated by tournaments, politicking, courtly love and canny business. Beyond those walls men are prey - vulnerable to the exceptionally powerful and dangerous creatures which populate the land, and even more vulnerable to those creatures schemes. So when one of those creatures breaks out of The Wild and begins preying on people in their homes, it takes a specialist to hunt it down or drive it out ...and even then, it's a long, difficult and extremely dangerous job. The Red Knight and his men are one such group of specialists. They have no idea what they're about to face ...Forget George and the Dragon. Forget Sir Lancelot and tales of Knightly exploits. This is dirty, bloody work. This is violent, visceral action. This is a mercenary knight as you've never seen one before.

If you loved Bujold's Chalion series or Martin 's Song of Fire and Ice you'll love this. Didn't want it to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous story with strong characters June 30 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Fantasy is a cluttered field with a few names shining bright, and I am thrilled to have discovered a new great writer. Loved the more unusual setting, reminiscent of the early medieval days, the lack of elves, the magic system, and the well written central cast. Can hardly wait for the next instalment. While not a purist, I can tell the battle scenes are accurate and eloquent, and fans of Abercrombie, Weeks, Rothfuss and Lynch should rejoice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic Fantasy - The Red Knight Feb. 1 2013
Format:Paperback
The Red Knight is the kind of epic fantasy that you don't put down till you're finished.

Set in a recognizable world dealing with themes of magic, memory, faith, chivalry, love, fear and the joy of team functioning, Cameron's 1st novel (of a proposed 5 part series ) is deeply satisfying in its evocation of a troop (or should that be troupe?) of mercenaries under the inspiring leadership of a mysterious protagonist. The cast of characters is large and riveting with hints of the familiarity of the archetypal/ earthly historical. The mood ranges from terrifying to domestic martial to valiant to partying and not always in expected ways.

I can hardly wait to see these ideas and this world expand in Volume 2.

And I want to see Jean de Vrailly DIE painfully.
