The gripping and atmospheric sequel to The Red Knight. Full of breathtaking authentic battle scenes, in a world where anyone might stab you in the back

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 intends to be victorious on them all?

Readers can't put down The Fell Sword:

'I loved the setting of The Fell Sword and all of it's bright, shiny, polished medieval-doings . . . Cameron has a way of writing battles that makes them feel so authentic' Goodreads reviewer,

'An amazingly complex story with plots and subplots that pull you right into the world . . . There were also a few unexpected twists and some very interesting revelations' Goodreads reviewer,

'This is a fantasy novel, but much more than that. It comes very close to Medieval Historical Fiction with a twist' Goodreads reviewer,

'Amazing battle scenes yet again, cinematic and exquisite detail. From maneuvers to arms and armour' Goodreads reviewer,

'I have heard the Traitor Son Cycle compared to the Malazan Book of the Fallen, and I clearly see that. It's got the scope, the diverse cast of characters, the many interweaving storylines . . . I can't wait to see where this goes' Goodreads reviewer,

'Takes the reader into the depths of the politics of the world, a truly dark murky, back stabbing politics, politics fueled by ambition and magic . . . It's exactly what a middle book should be, if not more, many middle books are a pause, this is anything but' Goodreads reviewer,
