This review is from: The Fell Sword (Traitor Son Cycle 2) (Paperback)
I love entering Miles Cameron's fantasy world – a medieval-ish place packed with with magic and monsters; and all totally believable. Cameron blends a Byzantine-style court with touches of chivalric France and England, and a dash of Ancient Greece, and even has a version of Canada and Native Americans as players in this grand, almost-operatic global drama. His magic-wielders are quite credible with their Aristotelian memory-palaces and laser-like power workings, which draw the eyes of other sorcerers and deplete their strength. His knights are utterly authentic to the buckle, vambrace, aventail and strap (if you can say that about a fantasy world) and his battles bloody, realistic and thrilling. The Fell Sword follows on from the equally brilliant Red Knight and I long for the next instalment. A beautiful piece of art. More please!
