Publisher Description


Anthony Ryan's debut novel Blood Song—the first book of the Raven's Shadow series—took the fantasy world by storm. Now, he continues that saga with The Wolf's Call, which begins a thrilling new story of razor-sharp action and epic adventure.

Peace never lasts.

Vaelin Al Sorna is a living legend, his name known across the Realm. It was his leadership that overthrew empires, his blade that won hard-fought battles - and his sacrifice that defeated an evil more terrifying than anything the world had ever seen. He won titles aplenty, only to cast aside his earned glory for a quiet life in the Realm's northern reaches.

Yet whispers have come from across the sea - rumours of an army called the Steel Horde, led by a man who believes himself a god. Vaelin has no wish to fight another war, but when he learns that Sherin, the woman he lost long ago, has fallen into the Horde's grasp, he resolves to confront this powerful new threat.

To this end, Vaelin travels to the realms of the Merchant Kings, a land ruled by honor and intrigue. There, as the drums of war thunder across kingdoms riven by conflict, Vaelin learns a terrible truth: that there are some battles that even he may not be strong enough to win.

The ending

Everything about this book was amazing (yes even the times I had to pause and think for 2-3 minutes to remember who each character in this giant cast is) and the fact it’s the same narrator it normally is makes it all the more better.
Just be warned. The end of this will leave you going “where is the next book!!!!”

Yes, yes, and yes again

The key to losing at Keschet is predictability. Anthony Ryan must be a keschet master. He continues to surprise with unpredictability. Very welcome surprises. Another believably evil villain, the return of Sharon Unser from Blood Song, and so many more characters I missed.
Anthony Ryan returns to Vaelin’s POV much like in his original Blood Song. The growth of his character is palpable and compelling. I couldn’t stop. What was lacking in Queen of Fire was kore than made up for with this installment. We can never have enough Vaelin. Always hard choices when he is involved. Can’t wait for Black Song and to see where Sharon’s new gifts take her.
