These books are just joyous . . .This is first-rate fiction, first rate adventure, first rate full stop
Fantastic from the first sentence to the last. Combining old-school swashbuckling action with contemporary characters and a good dose of grit, these books are the rarest of things, great rollicking fun combined with an emotional punch . . . Sebastien, write faster!
Guaranteed to increase household swashbuckling by 100%
These are not the kinds of books you forget. They are the kind you remember and recommend
Highly recommended, as is the GREATCOATS series as a whole
The Greatcoats is now up there on my list of favourite fantasy series
A page-turner in the true sense of the phrase . . . Witty, romantic and atmospheric in the way of great adventure stories
A bunch of fun from one cover to the other
Don't hesitate to buy this if you love a great hero and story . . . What a voice! What story-telling brio! If you love Dumas, or Game of Thrones or The False Prince this is the swashbuckling fantasy for you
Traitor's Blade provides swashbuckling fan service, and has fun along the way, but it also packs a sneaky emotional punch as well. Dumas would be proud
The Three Musketeers meets Game of Thrones, Traitor's Blade is the most delightful fun . . . [should] be high up on anyone's list
An absolute stunner that you can't afford to miss
I want to join the Greatcoats!
Every so often, a debut novel comes along that knocks your expectations out of the park. Scott Lynch's The Lies of Locke Lamora is one of those novels. Peter V. Brett's The Painted Man is another. Sebastien de Castell's Traitor's Blade needs to be added to that list. I loved this
