Book 2, The Traitor Son Cycle

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Miles Cameron weaves an epic tale of magic and mercinaries, war and depravity, politics and intrigue in this action-packed sequel to The Red Knight.
Loyalty costs money. Betrayal, on the other hand, is free.
When the Emperor is taken hostage, the Red Knight and his men find their services in high demand -- and themselves surrounded by enemies. The country is in revolt, the capital city is besieged and any victory will be hard won. But the Red Knight has a plan.
The question is, can he negotiate the political, magical, real and romantic battlefields at the same time -- especially when he intends to be victorious on them all?

Continue the adventure in Book 2 of Miles Cameron's epic medieval fantasy series, The Traitor Son Cycle.

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 20, 2014 – This dense sequel to The Red Knight throws readers into a vast maelstrom of political intrigue as various forces fight to control the emperor's throne in the capital city of Liviapolis. The Duke of Thrake's initial plot to overthrow his cousin is foiled when an alert guard shuts the city gates against the duke's forces, but he succeeds in capturing the emperor. Irene, the emperor's daughter, claims the throne and struggles to gather defenders. Foremost of these is the Red Knight, an infamous mercenary captain with a company of loyal lances. Even the Red Knight's skills may not be enough to save the empire, given that the sorcerers of Liviapolis's vaunted magical academy don't exactly support Irene, the weird forces of the alien Wild have been stirred up, and the Red Knight himself is struggling against the possessing spirit of the sorcerer Harmodius. Cameron makes it easy for new readers to use this complex volume as a starting point for the series.

The Fell Sword

Magnificent fast paced fantasy, Cameron is the man

Amazing story, great read

The second book is even better than the first. It took me a bit to get going with the expanded scope, but it does really take off. Then lots of action and story movement. I love that this writer doesn't frustrate you with stupid characters. They act and think realistically within the story and within their understanding of events. Words do have meaning in the story and often important events happen quickly. One other thing, in the first book I wasn't as into some of the secondary characters, but they really get interesting here. The wild really comes across as wild and parts feel like a real explorers adventure. Anyway, highly recommend if you're thinking of starting the first book or continuing the series.

One of the finest series I've ever read. Great scholarship combined with uncanny firsthand knowledge and an impeccable narrative voice to create a wonder. Lucky me! And you. Read it!
