Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As rivalries between magical colleges escalate into full-scale war, the land of Balaia suffers under the onslaught of armies and sorcery. Barons jockey for position, and members of the college of Julatsa seek elven mages to regain their connection to the world's Mana (power) flow. Into the fire of battle rides the mercenary company of the Ravens, swords for hire whose fighting prowess can turn the tide of battle, should they survive long enough to do so. Barclay continues his "Raven" series (Dawnthief; Noonshade; Nightchild) with another tale of bravery and camaraderie, battle and brotherhood. Fans of military fantasy and epic tales of warfare and politics should enjoy. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
