The Red Knight
Twenty eight florins a month is a huge price to pay, for a man to stand between you and the Wild. Twenty eight florins a month is nowhere near enough when a wyvern's jaws snap shut on your helmet in the hot stink of battle, and the beast starts to rip the head from your shoulders. But if standing and fighting is hard, leading a company of men - or worse, a company of mercenaries - against the smart, deadly creatures of the Wild is even harder. It takes all the advantages of birth, training, and the luck of the devil to do it. The Red Knight has all three, he has youth on his side, and he's determined to turn a profit. So when he hires his company out to protect an Abbess and her nunnery, it's just another job. The abby is rich, the nuns are pretty and the monster preying on them is nothing he can't deal with. Only it's not just a job. It's going to be a war. . .

Brilliant storytelling. Well described battle scenes. Good characters. Can't wait for vol.2

While well-written, the book's tendency to change viewpoints every five pages or so did me in. Even though each new scene was labeled with the location and the narrating character, I just couldn't keep up with the rapid shifts. Made it 200 pages in and called it quits.
