ONE ENEMY HAS FALLEN. A GREATER ONE REMAINS.
NOW, IT'S WAR.

With one army defeated in a victory which will be remembered through the ages, now the Red Knight must fight again.

For every one of his allies, there is a corresponding enemy. Spread across different lands, and on sea, it will all come down to one last gamble. And to whether or not the Red Knight has guessed the foe's true intentions.

With each throw of the dice, everything could be lost.

The Plague of Swords is the gripping fourth book in the Traitor Son Cycle.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
10/24/2016
The dense fourth novel in the Traitor Son Cycle isn’t an easy jumping-on point for newcomers, but it serves as a very solid continuation of the tale for readers who have been following the adventures of Gabriel (The Red Knight) in Cameron’s sprawling alternate historical Europe. The nation of Alba is facing a number of terrifying enemies (and potential allies), including monarchs of other kingdoms and dragons capable of taking on human form. Even in this tense part of the story, there’s still time for digressions that help with the already-solid worldbuilding; a sequence involving a ship caught in a battle between whales and sea serpents is particularly effective, as is the 30-page prologue, which could almost stand on its own as an effective horror story about ancient evil creatures and demonic possession. The core story of Gabriel’s quest keeps the pages turning, and Cameron’s attention to martial detail generally avoids crossing the line into pedantry. The clever dialogue (“She can hardly be the only woman who has tried to kill you.” “She’s the only one who proposed marriage later”) will entertain readers and get them excited for the next book. (Nov.)
