Some are born to power, some seize it and some have the wisdom never to wield it. Red Knight has stood against soldiers, against armies and against the might of an empire without flinching. He's fought on real and on magical battlefields alike, and now he's facing one of the greatest challenges yet. A tournament. A joyous spring event, the flower of the nobility will present arms and ride against each other for royal favour and acclaim.

Not impressed with a change of narrator between books. While not terrible he changes name pronunciations several times. Story is still great and is as bloodthirsty as ever.

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.

Pretty good story. Can get a bit hard to follow as it jumps pov a lot and recites the location every time. But I liked it, will continue with the series.

12 hours in and it all sounds like gibberish. Just a rambling mess. 1 credit wasted.
