Review Cold Iron

Cold Iron Download Ð 9 Miles Cameron ☆ 9 Read Summary Ô E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Miles Cameron Home for the holidays in an inn None of them step in to help when a young woman is thrown off a passing stage coach into the deep snow at the side of the road And none of them are drawn into a fight to protect herOne of the others might have realised she was m Cold Iron is set in a faux Byzantine City naming people old aristocratic families jockeying for power milieu with magic that has been freed by hero Tirases a millennium ago to be used by almost anyone in small but essential ways heating water and houses controlling fertility etc which led to a better life for many there are a lot of familiar elements the magic academy the farmer student of middling talent to start with etc combined with a lot of the historical fiction touches from the author s medieval series like Chivalry and Tom Swan medieval inn life manuscripts horses clothing and weapon details of the age which is a sort of 1400 s with dragons and magic as firearms are slowly appearing but swords and crossbows are still the main weapons However a curtain of war is coming towards the City from the east rumors are of conspiracies of the rich and powerful and especially of a cliue of a powerful Master and his Disciples who want to conuer the world in order to restrict the use of magic to themselves while claiming that its continual use by everyone is slowly but surely depleting it from the universe and our hero Aranthur of Arnaut background and who has many similarities with William Gold the hero of the Chivalry series though here the story is in third person gets somehow to be at the center of events the Arnauts are former mercenaries of the Empire now mostly settled as farmers in the mountainous hinterland and still looked upon as uncouth and violent barbarians by the Byzas aristocracy of the city while in return the Arnaut farmers have their own mythology of past greatness and of being empire saviours and have only contempt and disgust for the degenerate life of the City or for the many foreigner refugees from the wars in the East which slowly becomes another problem for Aranthur as he is caught and between his deepening involvement in City and Byzas aristocracy affairs and what he starts perceiving as the boorishness of his former neighbors and childhood friends And there is a friendly sentient dragon too a giftenvoy from the Empire of Zhou in the far east to the City and the Emperor though he is a figurehead to a large extent with the academy and the aristocratic families being the real powers whose species is now rare and on the blacklist of the Master as the dragons can eat magicThere is a lot of action and some of the storylines are at least partially solved while the ending is at a good tbc pointVery compelling set in a very rich world with many cultures and a well realized civilization with great characters Aranthur but many others too one will encounter through the story and highly recommended with volume 2 set for 2019 on my read on release list

Cold Iron Download Ð 9 Miles Cameron ☆ 9 Read Summary Ô E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Miles Cameron Anipulating him all along A powerful story about beginnings coming of age and the way choosing to take one step towards violence can lead to a slippery and dangerous slope this is an accomplished fantasy series driven by strong characters and fast paced action Cold Iron is the first book in the new Masters and Mages series from Miles Cameron author of the Traitor Son CycleComing into this book I was mostly familiar with Cameron through reputation only I d heard that the Traitor Son Cycle was a great fantasy series but I d never experienced his books for myself You guys know how those TBRs can beBut after reading Cold Iron I wish I d made time to read some of Miles Cameron s books much earlierCold Iron is a bit of a throwback to classical farmboy fantasy Our main character is Aranthur who leaves his simple rural life behind to study languages philosophy and even a little magik at the academy in his local city We first meet Aranthur as he prepares to travel home to spend a holiday with his family On the way he stumbles into some trouble which introduces him to a circle of people whom he was previously unfamiliar withWhat s interesting about this book is that it feels like a classical fantasy story but with modern tastes and sensibilities in mind It s aware of the criticisms that were and still are thrown at the farmboy books of yesteryear and takes steps to address them Even just considering the way in which Aranthur gets tied up in the plot of this novel he isn t a chosen one and he s not even the smartest or most talented in his academy He just happened to be in the wrong place at the right timeAranthur is a likeable and relatable character but not without his flaws His relatability is a little reminiscent of Kvothe from Pat Rothfuss Kingkiller Chronicles in that amongst all the epic and fantastical happenings and coping with antagonistic and casual racism Aranthur still has to work a part time job in order pay rent Between coursework work work and the trials and tribulations of being a fantasy protagonist Aranthur just doesn t have much time to think about anyone but himself By necessity or so he thinks he s than a little selfishPlot wise Aranthur gets dragged into a world which he knows very little about He meets people from every echelon of society from drug addicts to nobility to emperors and forms uniue and engaging relationships Unfortunately for him he also becomes involved in the politics that some of these relationships bring with them He is made aware of a mysterious and powerful Master who is said to be at the head of a political conspiracy that threatens war and magical terrorismThe world of Cold Iron struck me as late medieval early renaissance Guns are starting to appear but the main weapons used in combat are still swords spears crossbows and the like Aranthur is learning to use the sword and so there is a good number of action heavy swordfights and duels for those who like that kind of thingSomething which really stuck out about Cold Iron was the variety of roles which women played It is a very common and very valid criticism of older farmboy fantasy novels that women characters are often relegated to love interests courtesans or the local innkeeper s wife Actually there are characters who fit those descriptions in this book but the point is that they aren t confined to them Women can just as easily be badass swordswomen super powerful mages or intelligent generals and academicsAs a whole Cold Iron is a very enjoyable book which manages to feel both familiar and fresh I was intrigued by the world and the characters and I m invested in the plot to the extent that I ll be picking up the seuel as soon as I can get my grubby paws on itIf you like books with rich worlds engaging action scenes and relatable but flawed protagonists I d suggest that you pick this one up
