Book Review: Traitor’s Blade

Sebastien de Castell’s first novel, Traitor’s Blade follows the adventures of Falcio val Mond and his companions Kest and Brasti in their determined fight to uphold the Greatcoat values of fairness and justice across the kingdom of Tristia – ideals which have been tossed aside by the lawless, corrupted, and abusive regime of Dukes, who have taken over the land. Formerly the protectors of the King Paelis, the once mighty fighting guard of Greatcoats were branded as “traitors” who stood by as the ruler was overthrown and murdered. The traveling defenders, now disbanded and despised by the people, are considered lower class than peasantry.

Events lead them to embark on a quest that will change their fates forever.
