About the Author

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.

Reviews

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. The Greatcoats series is thriving, and I look forward to the next installment * Sean's Blog Now * Knights Shadow is a perfect book if you love engaging and hilarious characters, amazingly well sculpted fight scenes and that rush of excitement that only comes with being truly and utterly swept away by a writer of incredible talent * A Reading Machine * This book brought me to tears on numerous occasions, I felt so deeply involved with the plot and the characters . . . I don't think I'll ever tire of this series * Juniper's Jungle * I loved the story, I loved the style, the book just kept on giving and never lets you down. 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 . . . I think everyone who enjoys a good story of adventure should pick up their copies of Traitor's Blade and Knight's Shadow first chance they get! * Arched Doorway * One of the best book's you'll read this year, coming highly recommended. 9.5/10 * The Fictional Hangout * Action, drama, betrayals, I do look forward to reading more * Books For Life * I would still very much recommend the series to anyone looking for a well-written fantasy series * Civilian Reader * The fantastic dialogue, the humor, the twists and the exhilarating action all make this a worthy sequel to Traitor's Blade * Draumr Kopa Blog * A breathless rollercoaster of a ride that will engage, fascinate and compel the reader ever onwards, there is a beauty to the tale that gets right to the heart of you . . . this is exactly how it should be done * Liz Loves Books * Greatcoats is now up there on my list of favorite fantasy series * Bibliosanctum * Everything that de Castell did well in the first book - the action, the adventure, the high drama, the zinging character interaction and dialogue - is taken to a fresh level here . . . Knight's Shadow raises its own bar . . . 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. . . . This really is an exceptional book and series * Parmenion Books * It's easy to love de Castell's work. Two books in and "Greatcoats" still remains approachable and readable fantasy at its finest * Upcoming4.me * Excels at telling a fun, exciting adventure. . . Knight's Shadow is a strong tale in its own right * Fanboy Comics * Knight's Shadow is an excellent and engaging story, one of the best books I've read in a long time. 10/10 * Fantasy-Faction * High energy, highly unique, swashbuckling-cop-epic-noir story. Buy it. BUY IT NOW. * Sam Sykes, author of The City Stained Red * Fantastic from the first sentence to the last. Combining old-school swashbuckling action with contemporary characters and a good dose of grit, these books are the rarest of things, great rollicking fun combined with an emotional punch . . . Sebastien, write faster! * John Gwynne, Author of the Faithful and the Fallen * One hell of a good book * Conn Iggulden * Don't hesitate to buy this if you love a great hero and story . . . What a voice! What story-telling brio! If you love Dumas, or Game of Thrones or The False Prince this is the swashbuckling fantasy for you. * Amanda Craig, author of Hearts And Minds * An energetic, fun adventure that puts the "musk" back in "musketeer." Guaranteed to increase household swashbuckling by 100%. * Library Journal *
