Free download Cold Iron ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Free download í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free æ Miles Cameron Free read Cold Iron 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

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 35 stars Aranthur is just another student on the way home for the holidays but the inn in which he chooses to break the journey turns out to be the very wrong place and it s certainly the very wrong time The bloody episode that follows has ramifications which spread vine like through the narrative including significant changes for all those who happened to be there For Aranthur it sets the path of his life thereafter throwing him into the heart of political intrigue of the highest sortThe story is a meandering one Safe to say if you re looking for non stop action this is not for you In fact this is another book that reminded me very much of The Name of the Wind because it charts the tale of a nobody from nowhere who ends up at the very centre of things while still having to pay his rent Aranthur is clearly a ta veren but he s also a minor player in much greater conflicts He may be the focus of the story and the voice through which the reader sees the events of the book but it s made clear that the other characters are deeply involved in the great game high politics is being played by all and played to win It makes you feel for him because he is very much at the mercy of what s happening around him and while that gives him a pretty passive role in his own life he works hard within the framework he s given to do the right thing In any case like Kvothe Aranthur is engaging enough that you don t mind spending the time with him regardless of whether it s really moving the plot forwards And while it might be slow and character focused when the action hits it s brutal and inventive Shadow monsters come out of nowhere and rip you to bloody shreds I mean that s what might happen At some pointThe language well reflects the character s awkwardness especially in the beginning when he is unsure of himself and his new responsible role in society Join you and do what With my minimal sword skills and my nonexistent talent for Safiri and power join you and we ll save the world Without doubt this is a coming of age story a journey in which the reader learns alongside Aranthur and the development of knowledge is a significant motif in the book It seems like it s important to Miles Cameron too since his created world is deeply influenced by our own peppered with vocabulary from history and classicalworld languages syr for sir and agora marketplace to name just two The scope of the word borrowing extends far outside the timescale in which the book is set something that feels like the later Middle Ages to Early Modern period The transition between swords and guns allows for some thrilling fight scenes never losing that classic swords and sorcery feeling The magic system itself has a similar set up to The Wheel of Time with a split between female and male power here called saar and sihr respectively the male being the darker as in WoT The potential of power is hinted at but used sparingly as with so much in this book learning is necessary for greater workings On the other hand the everyday smaller egalitarian uses of power by normal people is cleverly used as the motivation for the grand struggle who should get to use it For some the Pure the answer is only the best people And guess what that ain t me and you It s an effective way to talk about class struggle and discrimination especially since in this world magic is needed for some basic tasks ones that keep people alive The feeds into another challenging topic the book deals with racism Some reviewers have suggested this book might be racist for example citing mongels as an unacceptable term to use in modern writing No judgement from me on that because it doesn t sound good at all but I think this is a book in which people come to realise or not their prejudices rather than starting out maturely developed My reading of it was that racism was something the book particularly tries to address especially through responses to refugees from the wars in the east who continue to arrive in the city and the countryside as things worsen in their former homes In both environments refugees are identified as a problem dealt with in a range of ways The language used to describe differences between foreigners and local populations come from the mouths of the characters rather than the author and reflect the insidious and ever present nature of racism the seemingly inescapable need for people to identify and highlight human variation in order to position themselves above others The supposed clash of cultures is repeatedly utilised as an excuse for a refusal to understand or accept different ways of living enabling the author to show the sheer irrationality of racial prejudice It reveals the way ideas about people are created and used to promote specific agendas whilst the destructive power of such concepts become ever clearly written in pain and death It s a pointed commentary on the effects of war and persecution one which has special validity for our own societyUnfortunately once it hits the high point at the end of Book 1 at about 80% there s a bit of a slow down with some serious time given to overexplanation There s still a lot going on but I just couldn t get back that same feeling from the first book As much as I enjoyed some aspects of the novel especially the underlying depth and social commentary there s not uite enough there to have me rush back
