Overview

In this book from Wrede’s acclaimed Lyra fantasy series, a young woman must fight for her life while on a quest to claim a magical family heirloom


Three weeks after Eleret’s mother is killed, the messenger arrives with the tragic news. She died far from home, succumbing to wounds sustained in battle, and Eleret must travel to reclaim her belongings. The overland journey to the city of Ciaron is treacherous, but Eleret has no fear. She straps a dagger to her leg and sets off to recover one of her mother’s prized possessions: a ring etched with a raven. Though she makes it to Ciaron safely, getting home is another story.
 
Eleret doesn’t know what’s special about her mother’s ring, but someone wanted it badly enough to kill for it. To make it home in one piece, she must unlock the mysteries of the ring her mother died to protect.

In this new adventure, a proud young mountain woman must leave her stronghold to travel to the city and accomplish a bitter task. Her mother, a soldier, died suddenly in the line of duty there, leaving behind the Raven Ring--an ancient family heirloom that is much more than it seems. Retrieving her mother's ring is a simple matter--but getting home will prove no easy task.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This refreshingly charming story makes good use of its warrior maiden, allowing her to find less obvious solutions to the rather typical dilemmas presented.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“This fantasy adventure by Wrede blends action, intrigue, and romance. Clever dialog and engaging characters add further spice to this magical comedy of manners.” —Library Journal
 
“High-style fantasy and adventure.” —The New York Times
Locus
A rousing sword-and-sorcery adventure with a bit of mystery thrown in...An interesting world with lots of depth to its varied cultures; cultural conflict provides as much entertainment as the breakneck plot.

Wrede again demonstrates her talent for writing when she focuses on a young woman who has to journey from the home she has loved in the mountains to go to retrieve her dead mother's things from a city which is strange to her. Many people are determined to steal her mother's possessions, and often she finds herself attacked by merciless villians, but she seeks aid from a tall, proud, man Lord Daner, and a theif Aurelico.

    Come to a world of Magic and Adventure.

    A young lady must travel to the great city in order to reclaim her dearly departed mother's belongings that was all that was left of the war she fought in. But things are not as easy as she thinks it's going to be. For some reason, there are people after her mother's things. Some that are willing to pay, and some that are not as kind. One does wonder it she'll make it out of the city alive, even with some very powerful allies, two of which are after more than to help.
