Publisher's Summary

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.
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....

as it says on the box

Buckets of blood, battles with horrible monsters. It's all there. Not for the faint hearted but I thoroughly enjoyed The Red Knight. I will be keeping an eye on Miles Cameron for more. I also have a new favourite narrator in Matthew Wolf. Recommended for fantasy lovers.

Epic!

What made the experience of listening to The Red Knight the most enjoyable?

It's the marriage between authentic detail, subtle humour and a range of different and carefully wrought story-lines that makes this one of the best books I've listen to in a while. It's a rather novel take on the fantasy genre, too. It's a fantasy/historic novel cross-over and not the worse for it.

What did you like best about this story?

It's really engaging and the characterisation avoids stereotypes. There are heroes dressed as anti-heroes and vice-versa. There are as many powerful women as men, which always gets my vote. Equally, there are vain and shallow women but just as many men sharing the same unflattering characteristics. There are a range of interesting themes such as the class-system, dysfunctional relationships and the rights and wrongs of other cultural, moral and social constructs. The story-lines are carefully constructed and despite the length of this book, they never seem laboured.

What about Matthew Wolf’s performance did you like?

Wolf's performance is another highlight. He has to cope with a massive range of characters and the variety of accents he manages are believable and generally well maintained. Yes, there are a few accent inconsistencies but there are so MANY characters this minor criticism hardly seems worth mentioning.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

King Arthur meets Patrick Bateman

Any additional comments?

The best value for money I've had in a long while.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend this book to anyone who wants a great story, well written and well read. I bought the second book because the first was so good; roll on number three.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The Red Knight as the central character was written in such a way the other characters played off him and brought out their own personalities.

Which character – as performed by Matthew Wolf – was your favourite?

Thorn, even as an evil character was played in a way that you wanted to know how far he would go despite the material he had to work with.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This book was too long to read in one sitting but it was finished within a couple of days; in time to get right into the Fell Sword.

Any additional comments?

I object to having to wait patiently for Book three.

Wonderful!

Excellent narration, the characters actually have their own voice and accents so you can really put your self into the story.

Most of the books I prefer to read are single pov or a few povs, how ever this book had many character pov it jumped between. I was happily surprised that I enjoyed it! It was skillfully written in a tight sequence so I never felt that parts were added to catch up to the main characters and the entire book was a nice and smooth read

No plot. No point

After listening to 17 hours of this book I realised that I just dont care about any of the characters or their situations. The entire book is a series of skirmishes around a central battle/seige, but without any overall story. This lack of 'bigger issue' became very tedious as no character was driving the plot, but merely reacting to situational influences.

Being the first of 5 in the series I have to say NO.
