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 abby 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. . .

Quotes & Awards

  • “Fans of hefty adventure epics will enjoy this dense, intricately plotted historical fantasy debut...Cameron, a pseudonymous author of historical fiction, packs this thick volume with enough magic, violence, and intrigue for three books, flavoring the story with period detail and earthy dialogue.”

    " a pretty good debut novel i am looking forward to the next one "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick Sayce | 2/5/2014

    " As a big fantasy book fan I find it harder and harder to find new and exciting novels which are not simply Tolkien rip offs, and this book is nothing of the sort. It does take awhile to get into mainly due to the multiple different characters, but once you are over the initial breath of characterisation you will soon see it was worth it. The characters are all individual and not the fearless invincible heroes that we are too often provided with. The "enemies" seem real and are not just the usual bad guys, this is by no means a simple good verses evil battle. Plus the magical structure used is also refreshing and new. Already I can't wait for the second book. "

    " Most correct historical fiction of my most recent books. Awaiting the next impatiently. (When I have to look up words: it's a good thing.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Riley | 12/15/2013

    " Pretty good. It dragged on a bit towards the end and the epilogue was crap, but mostly I enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie Barrows | 11/18/2013

    " Not bad. A little long though. Probably could have been a lot shorter and still been just as good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Sulentic | 11/6/2013

    " Knights, wizards, Dragons, desperate fights, heart-breaking romance, murder mystery, world altering magic, this book has it all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrewc Crump | 10/16/2013

    " One of the best novels I've read in 2012. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ender | 8/6/2013

    " the red knight is simply top shelf. in the same league as name of the wind for first novels, kind of has a gritty abercrombie feel, though at times it gets nearly as dark as the Black Company at it's best. you should put it at the top of the list, can't reccomend it enough. "
