An SF Gateway eBook: bringing the classics to the future.
From out of the bonds of slavery there arose a warrior...a warrior feared across all lands, a warrior whose blade was stained with the blood of thousands - man and beast - who smiled as she killed, with hair as gold as summer sun, eyes as blue as the heavens, and a body which invited only love yet dealt bloody, merciless death to her enemies.
This was Raven, Swordsmistress of Chaos.
And so she was chosen; a simple girl plucked from the slavepens of Lyand by the sorcerer-priests and schooled in every art of weaponry until no mere man could defeat her - in any form of physical combat.
Together with her mysterious companion, Spellbinder, and the great black bird which watched over them, RAVEN set forth to meet her destiny. Her first quest, to find the Skull of Quez and return it to its rightful owner, for only by so doing could she gain the chance to slaughter Karl ir Donwayne - the depraved monster whose tortures she could never forget...
