Overview


New York Times bestselling author Anthony Ryan returns to the “wonderful universe” (Fantasy Book Critic) of Blood Song, as Vaelin Al Sorna continues on his inevitable road to destiny…

King Janus’s vision of a Unified Realm has failed, drowned in the blood of brave men fighting for a cause that was forged from a lie. Sick at heart, Vaelin Al Sorna, warrior of the Sixth Order, returns home, determined to kill no more, seeking peace far from the intrigues of a troubled Realm.

But those gifted with the blood-song are not destined to live quiet lives. Vaelin finds himself a target, both for those seeking revenge and those who know about his gift. And as a great threat once again moves against the Realm, Vaelin realizes that when faced with annihilation, even the most reluctant hand must eventually draw a sword.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

“Ryan shines brighter in his sophomore effort by giving us many brilliant characters…Easily the best heroic epic fantasy of 2014…Anthony Ryan is David Gemmell’s natural successor and epic fantasy’s best British talent.”—Fantasy Book Critic

“[Tower Lord] begins to realize the imagination and coherency of Tolkien, while remaining true to the heart and soul of the author. The Raven’s Shadow series is one of the best new series out there, challenging all the existing big-names to sit up and take notice, or be left behind.”—Fantasy Book Review

“[Ryan has] proven himself as an author who can write a very diverse and convincing cast of characters…A wonderful follow-up.”—The Bibliosanctum

“[L]eaves you both satisfied and on the edge of your seat for what happens next. Loved it.”—Tenacious Reader

“The series shaping up to become something established for the fantasy genre that will be recommended for years to come. Anthony Ryan has shown he’s able to repeat with Tower Lord what he started with Blood Song.”—Indie-Fantasy

    Everything I was hoping it would be!

    I read his first book (Blood Song) and loved it. This second book didn't let me down. Once he set the ball rolling, it wouldn't stop until you reached the end. A few twists in the story definitely kept me wanting more. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast paced fantasy fiction novel.

    Very engaging book!

    This is a nice long story about the "days of old". Lots of swords, bow and arrows, war, royalty, fighting (a little too much of that) and love. I enjoyed this book a lot. You get to "live in the story" for a time and just enjoy the ride. Won't go into all the details, but I did enjoy this book and will look at further books from this author.

    Phenominal

    I don't write many reviews. I felt it necessary to set some thoughts down for one of my new favorite writers. Anthony Ryan is everything you could ask for in a writer. His world is large and colorful, full of unique cultures with deep history. His characters are engaging and have real personality much as one could want in real people. Even when they become larger than life through their adventures, Ryan manages to keep them human. Above all, Ryan keeps you hungering for the next page and you are upset when you reach the end because you want more.

    I have read hundreds of books by many authors. Ryan is among the best. If you want an adventure worthy of Rothfuss, Martin, Jordan, and Sanderson, get this book and the one before it. It's called "Blood Song."

    This was AWESOME!

    This is/was the best book I have read in a while. The books that come close is Blood Song and The song of Ice and Fire saga. THIS WAS EPIC?
