Traitor’s Blade

The Greatcoats: legendary heroes, arbiters of justice, or notorious traitors?

The King is dead, the Greatcoats have been disbanded and Falcio Val Mond and fellow magistrates Kest and Brasti have been reduced to working as bodyguards for a nobleman who refuses to pay them. Things could be worse – their employer could be lying dead on the floor while the three of them are forced to watch as the killer plants evidence framing them for the murder. Oh wait, that’s exactly what’s happening . . .

First in the acclaimed Greatcoats series of swashbuckling adventures, Traitor’s Blade took the fantasy world by a storm, gathering praise from publications, readers, and bestselling authors.

As members of the legendary Greatcoats, Falcio, Kest, and Brasti once brought justice to a troubled kingdom with their knowledge of the king’s laws and their skills with a blade. But now the king is dead, the Greatcoats have been disbanded, and a royal conspiracy is about to unfold in the most corrupt city in the world that could mean the ruin of everything Falcio, Kest and Brasti have fought for. If the trio want to unwind the conspiracy, save the innocents and reunite the Greatcoats, they’ll have to do it with nothing but the tattered leather coats on their backs and the swords in their hands, because these days every noble is a tyrant, every knight is a thug and the only thing you can really trust is a traitor’s blade.

Deleted Scenes: The Chevor Cat

“The Chevor Cat” was the original scene in Traitor’s Blade that takes place when Falcio is first reminiscing about life shortly after the Greatcoats were disbanded. When I was finalizing the book, it felt as if it might be too laid back – not “actiony” enough to fit that moment in the book. However I’ve always had a fondness for this scene – specifically how it reveals how easily the Greatcoats went from being legendary heroes to reviled traitors.

Falcio val Mond

This was an early rendering of Falcio that would have been the basis for a cover, but we went with a different look for the series.
