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.

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.

This book is a great read, full of exceptional battle scenes, mythological creatures and knightly derring-do.

The plot builds at a steady pace in a medieval world with excellent detail and complexity. The theory of magic is well developed and exposed to characters as they progress. The different societies that exist in this world have significant cultural differences and it is interesting to see how they clash and blend. There is a fascinating test of generalship where lives rest on the line in a contest of military strategy and tactics. As I mentioned, the battle scenes are very well done, from the thrust and parry right down to the mundane details of preparing armour and weapons. If anything, there were too many battles before a respite.

The language had great flow, and it was the kind of book that grabs your interest and keeps you reading. I look forward to the next in the series.

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.
