About the Series: Akurite Empire: The Legend of Sabra Daishen
The great hero Kam Daishen lies dead; taking his name and armour, a young woman sets out to complete the slain knight's quest.

For twenty years, civil war has wracked the Darician Plateau; now the armies of the Empress Kaesa stand poised to seize victory. From the smoke of war comes a rebel champion, Sabra Daishen, sworn to the quest and guided by the ancient spirit of the warrior whose armour she wears.

To overcome the legions of the mad empress, Sabra must unite the rebel factions; accompanied by the old sword-diva Meridian Charn and the beastman archer Menalowen, Sabra sets out to raise an army.

But behind the imperial legions stands the Empress herself, a woman possessed of dark sorcery and supported by inhuman allies. To win victory on the battlefield, Sabra must first defeat the demons of her past to become more than a knight, and master the spiritual powers of a paladin.

I must admit that though I am not a particular fan of fantasy books, I was instantly drawn into this story and kept reading it till I reached the last page. The Red Knight is a fast-paced story with lots of epic action. Besides the wonderful descriptions of characters and scenery, I was equally impressed by Samuel Z Jones remarkable ability to write using impeccable grammar and punctuation. As an English teacher, the correct use of language is something I always look for in a book and I was delighted to discover it in one of Mr. Jones' books.
I highly recommend it to all readers looking for an extremely good book and not just to fantasy fans.

The Red Knight is a fantastic romp into a well-developed and clearly-visualized fantasy world. From the very beginning, the book is marked by strong, defined characters who are at once entertaining and easy to root for, and descriptions and turns-of-phrase which border on the poetic.

In addition to being marked with stunning descriptions of both characters and settings, an enviable array of vocabulary words, and almost perfect grammar throughout, many passages in this book are filled with fundamental truths and wisdoms that will resonate with any reader.

Recommended for all lovers of fantasy and epic fantasy (and well-written books). If you are seeking to submerge yourself into a brand new world, let it be this one.

Samuel Jones has written a book that goes beyond any ordinary definition of Fantasy. The world he has created is more than equal to any of the masters of the genre, in fact, I would go so far as to say this is beyond most of them. And I would include Tolkein in that line-up.

The characters too are real, so real you would recognise them if you saw them in the street, though you would probably be well advised to steer clear lest their magical powers ensnare you!

Flawless writing, wonderfully free of grammatical errors and typos, and a flowing prose style that grabs you and carries you along makes this a book to buy and read more than once.

More please, Mr Jones.
