Hope you don’t get bored hearing this, but there is no other simple way for me to describe Traitor’s Blade, Sebastien de Castell’s great debut work and the first book in the Greatcoats quartet, other than that it’s a blend of Alexandre Dumas’s ‘The Three Musketeers’ and Joe Abercrombie’s ‘The First Law’ series.

Traitor's Blade is a fascinating story with witty, humorous and sentimental elements. De Castell's imaginative language, in combination with the extremely fast pacing and unexpected circumstances, provides the story with a cinematic vignette, making the book stand out in the genre.
