In this world, magic doesn't last forever.
Irulen is a young mage who solves mysteries for a price. He’s called to a sleepy, snow-capped village in the north to investigate a string of ritualistic murders where he meets Farah. Farah’s friend is already dead, and signs point that she may be the next victim. Irulen races against time to find a sadistic killer.
But is this an isolated mystery, or just the beginning of something larger? Irulen’s past is back to haunt him, and serves to threaten Farah’s future. Is their meeting a call to destiny? Or are they a small part in a larger design of something diabolical?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Ravens in the Sky hooks you in from the first page and takes you on an adventure like no other. It is an engaging blend of fantasy and crime fiction. The author really touches on so many elements of the human condition in such a unique and creative way. Guilt, revenge, love, regret, redemption…it’s all there. It’s so much more than just a fantasy novel; its a read on a deeper level. The characters are well-developed and you learn more and more about the depth of each one as you read on. I love that the hero in the story, Irulen, is so flawed, I found myself yelling at him sometimes and rooting for him at others. The female characters I found to be exceptional. You have Farah and Kay. Farah is young and innocent, but surprisingly strong-willed. Kay is older and more experienced in life and not afraid to go for what she wants. There is also Lynette who, like Kay, went through a traumatic past, but her past overtakes her where Kay redefines herself. It may take a bit to keep track of all the characters but once you let go and engulf yourself into the world that is RITS, you won’t regret it. Looking forward to this author’s next book.
