Review

Praise for Traitor's Blade (A Library Journal Best Debut):

"Traitor's Blade is a swashbuckling romp packed with charisma, camaraderie, quick wit and even quicker swordplay. That said, it's far from candy-coated - and it packs some serious substance . . . darkness is served up deliciously in Traitor's Blade - only de Castell uses it as the sauce, not the soup . . . What makes the book truly sing, though, is its rich historical backdrop . . . De Castell's fight scenes are as sumptuously detailed as the world Falcio inhabits. . . In its own way, Traitor's Blade is as grim and dark as the edgiest fantasy series on the shelves. It's also shot through with heroics, hope and a dazzling aptitude for fun."
Jason Heller, NPR

"Like the sword its disgraced protagonist carries, Traitor's Blade is short and sharp and smart, and very well wielded, really . . . With a tip of his hat at Alexandre Dumas, Sebastien de Castell make a fine first impression in this entertaining debut."
Tor

"The best Musketeers trope since Dumas's original . . . Fights are well-thought out as de Castell is a former "fight choreographer" (I dare you to put that on your tax return). Fighting, swordplay, and escaping from same form most of the action alongside ten kinds of witty banter, bravado and brio- make no mistake, this is a fun read. The light tone is challenged by ruthless villains, especially Duchess Patriana who, though truly repugnant, is as notably well-constructed as other female characters. An energetic, fun adventure that puts the 'musk' back in 'musketeer.' Guaranteed to increase household swashbuckling by 100%."
Library Journal

"Sebastien De Castell manages to wring every heart wrenching moment and ounce of anticipation from every scene, his fight scenes contain dark humor, explosive action and a great awareness of the art of sword fighting, all of which has you hanging on the edge of every page. (There are also some truly laugh out loud moments in this book.) . . . An exceptional book and series . . . this book is clearly going to be a stand out title."―Parmenion Books

Praise for Knight's Shadow:

"The shocking ending left my completely stunned . . . Knight's Shadow is the best book I have read this year so far and I'm not sure anything coming out this year can hope to top it!"―The Arched Doorway

"How wonderful it is to be back into this world . . . wildly entertaining . . . Greatcoats is now up there on my list of favorite fantasy series, and I never miss a chance to recommend it to my fellow readers and friends."―Bibliosanctum

"[Knight's Shadow] will blow you away . . . Sebastien de Castell has really, really outdone himself. . . I probably will have to wait another year for the third book in the series but it is definitely worth the wait. The Greatcoats series should be on every reading list."― The Book Plank

"Traitor's Blade was one of the most enjoyable fantasy debuts of the last year . . . both stem from a time when fantasy was just plain fun and promised quests and excitement, when you opened a book expecting to be entertained . . . It's easy to love de Castell's work . . . readable fantasy at its finest."―Upcoming4me

"This is fast, fantastic fun--and it has an excellent character piece wrapped inside it . . . a great read, and very much a worthy sequel."― Sci-fi and Fantasy Reviews

"Ends on a satisfying conclusion that nevertheless leaves room for the story to continue in Saint's Blood."―Starburst Magazine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
