Traitor's Blade Book Cover Traitor's Blade
The Greatcoats, Book 1

Historical Fiction, Adventure

"Reduced to demeaning work when the Greatcoats are disbanded after the king's death, swordsman Falcio Val Mond and his fellow magistrates are framed for murder by a scheming adversary who would destroy everything they once worked to create."

From the Joint Staff review: You get a sense for it from the summary, but get one chapter in and you’ll see it’s glaringly-in-a-good-way obvious that Traitor’s Blade is de Castell’s homage to Dumas’ The Three Musketeers, and that right there put a big bold check mark in the ‘meant for me’ column of my reading list.
