A fantasy epic with the action of David Gemmell and the characterisation of Robin Hobb from a major British talent.
Chronicles of the Raven: One.
ELITE, UNSTOPPABLE...AND HIRED TO DO THE UNTHINKABLE.
The Raven are an elite. Formed of six men and an elf, they're swords for hire in the wars that have torn their land apart. For years their only loyalty has been to themselves and to their code.
But that time is coming to an end. The Wytch Lords have escaped and The Raven find themselves fighting for the Dark College of magic, on a mission which soon becomes a race for the secret location of Dawnthief. It's a spell - one created to end the world - and there's a danger that someone is going to use it...
