Publisher's Summary

In the country of Burgundy, the Sauval brothers have begun to terrorize the surrounding lands in an attempt to bring the area under their control. They raid the Red Keep, in hope of gaining it for themselves, only to be thwarted by Sir Roger and young Conan. 

Now they plot anew to steal the Keep from its rightful owner, Lady Anne. She, with Conan and her loyal followers, sets out to bring justice upon the evil brothers. An action-filled tale with the authentic flavor of the 12th century, by the author of The Story of Rolf and the Viking Bow and The Lost Baron

Ivanhoe but fast paced

I don't have adequate words to describe how much I loved this book. The story was compelling and fast paced while remaining wonderful story telling. The setting of medieval France was both historically accurate and fantastic. It is nice to have a hero who really is a hero. so often in books of today, heroes are full of flaws in order to be relatable. The Red Keep's hero, Conan, is heroic, chivalrous, cunning, and someone I both aspire and look up to. I fully intend to listen to it again and again.
If there was any flaw, it is that the depiction of violence is not sugar coated.
