Review of Cold Iron by Miles Cameron | Every Day Should Be TuesdayIt is also a very different book, though, so read on for my thoughts on Cold Iron. And this is a book that left with as many thoughts and feels as it did entertained. So a bit about the differences: The Traitor Son Cycle is very much quarter-turn fantasy, with its countries lining up fairly neatly with real world analogues, and the society and technology roughly corresponding to late medieval Europe. This bears some resemblance to the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment and other liberal reforms again, something we need more of in fantasy , but it looks much different in practice. Monsters and magic are present, but not to nearly the same extent as in The Traitor Son Cycle. But perhaps the biggest change is that, where The Traitor Son Cycle is throw-you-in-the-deep-end epic fantasy that introduces a huge, complex story pretty much right from the get-go, Cold Iron takes a more traditional tack.

Cold Iron is fantastic. Aranthur is a student. It shimmers like a well- honed sword blade.
