Sebastien de Castell had just finished a degree in Archaeology when he started work on his first dig. Four hours later he realised how much he hated archaeology and left to pursue a very focused career as a musician, ombudsman, interaction designer, fight choreographer, teacher, project manager, actor and product strategist. After a year in the Netherlands, he has recently returned to Vancouver, Canada, where he lives with his wife and two belligerent cats.
De Castell's superb writing and pacing results in a headlong rush of excitement to the very last page . . . The twists and turns make "Knight's Shadow" a page-turner in the truest, most satisfactory sense of the term * NewsOK * Knight's Shadow is just amazing. The Greatcoats series with Traitor's Blade and Knight's Shadow should be on every reading list. Period. * The Book Plank * The story was so gripping . . . I couldn't tear my eyes away. Recommended 100% * The Endless Reading List * Resonates long after you close the book * Jennifer Melzer * A very entertaining series * Fantasy Review Barn * Better than its predecessor, Knight's Shadow is a wonderful sequel, managing to keep the tone of the original intact while at the same time expanding the themes that made it so good.

It's a perfect fantasy story * Book Geek Says * This second book has cemented my love for the series . . . It was so invigorating to go on this dangerous, and sometimes painful, but ultimately satisfying adventure with Falcio, Kest, Brasti and the rest of the Greatcoats. This is a series I recommend everyone to read! * Bookish Wimsy * Truly is a must-read book . . . the kind of historical fantasy that makes everything else pale in comparison * Beauty in Ruins * It was what I was hoping for and I was not disappointed! * Not Yet Read * This ends on a satisfying conclusion that leaves room for the story to continue * Starburst Magazine * The best book I have read this year . . .

This story is bigger, darker and full of more violence than its predecessor * Over the Effing Rainbow * Sebastien De Castell manages to wring every heart wrenching moment and ounce of anticipation from every scene, his fight scenes contain dark humour, explosive action and a great awareness of the art of sword fighting, all of which has you hanging on the edge of every page. . . .
