Praise for the Raven's Shadow novels
"Fans of broadscale epic fantasy along the lines of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series and George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire novels should find this debut much to their liking."--Library Journal "[Blood Song] certainly has it all: great coming-of-age tale, compelling character and a fast-paced plot. If [Ryan's] first book is any indication of things to come, then all fantasy readers should rejoice."--Michael J. Sullivan, author of the Riyria Revelations series "Ryan hits all the high notes of epic fantasy--a gritty setting, ancient magics, ruthless intrigue, divided loyalties and bloody action."--Publishers Weekly "A top contender for most impressive debut of the year...A thick, meaty novel of substance...A powerful epic."--SFFWorld.com "Heroic epic fantasy."--Fantasy Book Critic "A page-turner."--Booklist
