This review is from: Raven's Shadow Book One: Blood Song (Raven's Shadow 1) (Kindle Edition)
This book was actually recommended by Linus Torvalds on a post he made. Having just finished reading through another book series, I was looking for something new to tide me over until the sequal; I picked this up and just didn't stop reading it.
The pace is clear and fast, the characters have depth and difference. I truly admire the author for his ability to bring a relevant take on such a fictional genre. Everything topic covered in the book has happened in our history, we have had blind followers and soldiers of Faith, we've had genocide, we've had Witch trials.. but to see all topics covered in a single world and time, with a single focus point (Vaelin); you get to observe the effects, shames and irrational behaviour that must have been experienced by people at those times in our own history.
I can't wait for the second book.
Well done to the Anthony Ryan, well done
