About Richard Crawford

I have been working on Traitor Blade for several years. As it is very long it seemed best to break it down into separate books, which I hope to publish close together. I am working on book three (preview of the first chapter is up on my blog if you want to stop by and say hello). Book three will complete this series though I might write more in the same world.

I have tried to find the right place to end each book; my apologies if I have not got it quite right.

I would very much like to receive reviews and would like to thank readers who have taken time to comment.

Traitor Blade, by Richard Crawford, is a novel that focuses mainly on Edouard. As the second son of the King’s brother, Edouard is a young man who is caught up in the political dramas of court, ill prepared for such a battlefield. Constantly in trouble with his father he tries to find his own way in life. Being a Knight is all he has ever wanted, but when Edouard leaves Chamfort to take part in the summer battles, he sets himself on a path of no return.

Aside from Edouard, the story focuses on Mariette – widowed at the start of the novel she seeks to bring down those who murdered her husband. Her ‘games’ at court become serious when she meets Edouard. She is not sure if she can trust herself. To prove Edouard innocent she must break his heart, but if she does this, is she being true to herself?

This is a reasonably well written story, with only a few issues that caught my notice. I picked up a few spelling errors as well as grammatical which detracted from the tale which was unfortunate. Also, I found that there was the occasional change to a minor character which, though useful to the telling of the story in some ways, upset the pace of the tale for me- but that’s just my opinion.

Otherwise, it is a very good story with plenty of action, intrigue and drama.

For those who like fantasy, Knights and honour, intrigues of court and a darkness that needs to be fought, I highly recommend this novel to you.

Great storytelling and well thought out character building. I'm currently reading the second book, which could be considered a good endorsement in itself. Other than a few grammatical errors both books are well written and a worthy and enjoyable read. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for a "book 3".
