Captivating, richly imaginative and original (like nothing I have encountered before); this is a story that transports its reader to a harsh world enveloped in mystery and magic. Inspired by Greenlandic mythical beings, this short Christmas story continues the journey begun in Embers of the Raven; returning once more to the dramatic winter landscape of Greenland with a festive twist for the holidays! Overwhelmed by the stunning atmospheric, detailed descriptions one is able to get a `real' sense of the Arctic where you can almost touch the frozen ice, smell the blood from carcasses and feel the trickle of chilly water as it glistens and shimmers underneath a moonlight sky - just beautiful!

This story I personally felt was in two parts, with the first being with the Greenlanders. They are unable to rest still for after the troll (in previous works), is the wolf that is a deadly creature born of magic. One discovers more of the intense drama under dark winter skies, when Tulugaq the shaman and Nissimaaq the great hunter must defeat the shapeshifting Aarluuk. Being a `SeaWolf' it changes its form from the mighty water dwelling Orca to the ferocious land creature, which is in pursuit of a young girl called Paninguak who is the daughter of the sea, to Sedna.

The second half of the story focuses on the Winterwraith who is a Raven, and whose mind infiltrates a dying sledge dog, Ajana, so as to give it new life by sharing one body. This part of the tale I thought was inspired and which reminded me so much of great fantasy writer Robin Hobb, where in her work `Royal Assassin' there is a kind of magic called the WIT where young man Fitz shares the mind of a wolf.

This part of the tale I thought was inspired and which reminded me so much of great fantasy writer Robin Hobb, where in her work `Royal Assassin' there is a kind of magic called the WIT where young man Fitz shares the mind of a wolf. This element within the story I really connected with and enjoyed reading about the most, for I was intrigued by the `Ravenmind' being something totally astonishing in terms of portraying magic.

Descriptive and atmospheric, this delightful story is a just breathtaking. I especially loved the line;

"...thick oily skin as hairs chased the salty spots of water from the follicles upwards along each hair, until the water glistened like dew..."

The bravery of the Sledge dogs was admirable, as too was how the author had made them all so individualistic with such distinctive traits as to make them noteworthy by adding to the story. The magic used by the hunter is connected to the Northern Lights, which brought back a sense of nostalgia as I recalled its significance in Phillip Pullman's (His Dark Materials 1) The Golden Compass, for he is another great writer who used this spectacular creation as something magical & interwoven in the story. The magic of winter can be given as a gift, thus allowing one to never die although growing old, by sustaining the creatures soul within it. Spellbinding and a book that sends chills down your spine, I highly rate this as something truly outstanding and worthy within its genre. Complete with a full Greenlandic glossary, Ravenmind (which chronologically follows on from Embers of the Raven) is a fantastic read and one that has exceeded all expectations!

The twist in the tale with the jingling bells, sledge and one particular dog that contains a Ravenmind...is just brilliant! *hint Christmas*

*I would like to thank the author, Chris Paton, for having `Ravenmind: A Christmas story, free on Amazon UK. I look forward to reading more works within this series*

I enjoyed this book quite small but really useful for my research for a book I am writing about the pagan Vikings
