In addition to magicians there are also knights in this fantasy world. We first meet Kaiden when he is chained to a wall in a dungeon, but soon enough he's out and about brandishing his sword and pursuing his "knightly duties." It's rare to have a fantasy novel feature a kind of Arthurian knight these days, so Kaiden was a refreshing character.
Overall the writing is very solid in this book. I got a strong sense of the joy of creation from the author, which sometimes leads to problems being solved on the fly. For example when Kaiden is released from prison, he reveals that he had stashed his weapons and gold in anticipation of capture. This is plausible enough, although it did kind of stand out to me as maybe a little too easy. Then again, that moment didn't disrupt the flow of the novel for me, so I don't consider it an issue. The point is that Matthew Olney has his eye on a story he wants to tell, and he attacks it without deviation.
This book is a rich texture of old school fantasy storytelling with some modern mythos. A good find!
I hope the next book is a bit stronger.

Not really a novel but a collection of short stories.
