Handpicked books for children

I see that I bought this almost a year ago and only picked it up last week. They are very long books and take quite a bit of commitment to finish. I think what was holding me back from loving those two books was all the military detail and the long, protracted battles. That being said, I definitely think the author knows his stuff with respect to medieval armor, weapons, combat, warfare, and politics. If attention to details like that is your thing, start with the first book and read the whole series right now!

Anyway, as it turns out, this third book here is the most engaging in the series for me. I finished it in just a few days, even though it is a lengthy tome since I was reading it on Kindle, not seeing the physical size probably helped I kept going back to reading it when I really should have been doing other things. Also, there was a plot detail near the end that has me glad I picked this up now instead of earlier. The next book comes out next month and I really want to see how this plays out and now I won't have to wait too long!

And for what it's worth, the author is prolific. Even though this series is not finished, you won't have to wait for more than about a year between volumes. One thing I am noticing as I go through this series is that each book has a specific task to accomplish. I wasn't sure until I got to nearly the end of this book what its place in the series was, but I actually think it's pretty important. Some conflicts are resolved, some enemies are defeated, there are some victories for the "good guys," but the situation in the world also becomes much more dire and the scale of the conflict becomes grander.

So this is definitely not a placeholder novel, but it actually gets things done. There were points in the middle of the book when I wasn't sure what the end game would be, but after finishing, I see how each event contributed. So I think this was well-planned.

I've mentioned the author's attention to detail. I think the strengths of these books are really in the world building. It is detailed and well thought out and lends a feel of authenticity to the narrative that some fantasy authors just don't ever manage to capture. The writing has improved a great deal from the first book and I expect it will continue to do so in future books.

I see many fewer errors and there weren't any repetitive phrases that annoyed me. The writing was still descriptive enough of battle details to give me a good picture of what was going on without boring me. I get that it takes a long time to put on and take off armor. I don't need to read that every 10 pages and here, I didn't. There was battle in this book, but it seems shorter than in The Fell Sword, for which I am grateful. I rather liked the switch to politics, to see how the characters behaved in a different context, to see new aspects of their relationships. I am sure that the final conflict took most of a day to play out in the world of the book, but it felt quicker than that while I was reading it for me, this is a good thing; battle scenes are not my favorite.

There are a few smaller conflicts leading up to the main one, so if you do like battle and fight scenes, you will not be disappointed. To me, these books are really not character-driven books. Reflecting back, I do think Gabriel the Red Knight went through some interesting transformations in this book, especially in his relationships with others and also in terms of dealing with some of his own physical limitations. I already felt that he was sympathetic, but this made him much more human to me.

It was hard to get into the heads of other characters, even though there were some other POVs, but that is to be expected with a book that has such a large cast of characters. For what it's worth, Gabriel's antagonist Jean de Vrailly was much less irritating in this book than in past novels. He actually became a slight bit sympathetic here and I didn't think that would ever happen There were a lot of character deaths, and not just of people I'd consider minor. Some of these I certainly did NOT expect and some of them seemed rather abrupt but that is not a bad thing in terms of the book -- in war, a life can be snuffed out in an instant and foreshadowing wouldn't make sense in that case.

In the end, if you have made it through the first two books, I would definitely recommend picking this one up as it was my favorite of the three. If you have not yet started this series and you are a fan of military fantasy, with all its gory details, I think you will find something to like here as well but start with book one. If you have not read any of Miles Cameron's novels and you enjoy reading fantasy that is not just thrilling and engrossing, but is also well written literature, then prepare to be delighted by this book which is the third installment in a series that began with The Red Knight.

There are very few authors that I regard as genuinely approaching the caliber of Tolkein, and Miles Cameron along with C.

Cherryh, McMaster Bujold, and D. Cornish are in that exalted company. Well done Mr Cameron and please keep delivering such fine and enjoyable works. The Traitor Son Cycle might be the best epic fantasy series ongoing right now. Cameron is known for his historical fiction published as Christian Cameron , and he is really good at the things you would expect him to be good at.

The battle scenes—and there are a lot of them, in the series and in this book—are phenomenal—tense, chaotic, and bloody. The character list is long, and those characters are distinct and think like people from a very different time. As the story blooms into an epic, the main characters grow and the minor characters flesh out. And the story takes a distinctly fantastic turn as godlike beings begin to take a more direct hand.

Those fantastical elements are really, really good. Cameron continues to build on his interesting hermetical magic system. The tournament, as it turns out, is largely sidelined by bigger matters. The marches are preparing for another great incursion by the Wild, the Albin capital is more interested in what becomes really an invasion by Galles and the imprisonment of the queen, and both parties pull at Gabriel, the Red Knight.

As does his mother. Cameron keeps things both hurtling along and on the tracks. He also has a talent for ending on a beat. There is a rhythm to his writing. Indeed, many troubadours claimed irk blood flowed among the people of Occitan. In coastal towns, there were even mosques, tolerated by the princes. Occitan was a land of song, and oranges.
