New or Used: 2 copies from $14.00
The Raven have fought together for years, six men carving out a living as swords for hire in the war that have torn Balaia apart, loyal only to themselves and their code. But when they agree to escort a Xesteskian mage on a secret mission they are pulled into a world of politics and ancients secrets. For the first time the Raven cannot even trust their own strength and prowess, for the first time their code is in doubt. How is it that they are fighting for one of the most evil colleges of magic known? Searching for the secret location of Dawnthief; a spell that could end the world? Aiming not to destroy it but to cast it. DAWNTHIEF is a fast paced epic about a band of all too human heroes.

Reviews

For years, the seven mercenaries collectively known as The Raven made their fortunes by fighting the wars of others, loyal only to one another and to their code. Now, as thoughts of retirement and intimations of their own mortality occupy them, they receive news of a threat that drives them to fight for the Dark College of Xetsekian mages. Barclay's (Cry of the Newborn) series opener begins in the midst of battle and never stops its fast-paced, action-based momentum. Verdict With heroes that possess believable strengths and flaws, this fantasy adventure, first published in Britain in 2002, should appeal to fans of Glen Cook's "Black Company" novels. [Coming in October is the second book, Noonshade.-Ed.] Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
