Summary:

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. . .

    i was surprised how much I loved this. fantastic. the audio is equalized really flat, so the otherwise wonderful narrator requires your attentive ear to follow along.

    It took a bit to get used to the narrator who seemed at first a tad dry in his narration. Ultimately this has become one of my favorite narratives of all time. Once I got used to the cadence of the narrator the world began to flesh out around me. His use of various voices for each character is imprressive and absolutely what I look for in narratives. Miles Cameron has created a bold mystical world based in the medieval setting. Knights magick, man and god vs beasts and the palpable power of nature manifested in the form of Demons, Fey, and wild animals. If you enjoy fantasy and magick rooted in a realistic setting.
