‘Anthony Ryan’s debut novel Blood Song– book one of the Raven’s Shadow series – took the fantasy world by storm. The sequels, Tower Lordand Queen of Firewere both New York Times bestsellers. Now, Anthony Ryan returns to the world of this acclaimed fantasy series 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 honour 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 cannot hope to win.’
‘An immensely satisfying, top-notch adventure fantasy.’ (KIRKUS REVIEW)
‘The Wolf’s Call delivers a fantastic storytelling tone that’s attuned to the one sang so brilliantly in Blood Song.’ (NovelNotions)
‘The Wolf’s Call is everything a fantasy fan could ever wish for.’ (Booknest)

I started reading last night and could barely put it down. Just as fantastic as Queen of Fire… and so refreshing to read high fantasy that isn’t just “manly straight men have manly adventures”, too. Thanks!

Fantastic!! I have read the Raven’s Shadow series multiple times. I was so excited about this new one and it exceeded all expectation. These are by far my favourite stories. Cannot wait for the next one. Keep it up!.

Great read! Blood Song is possibly my favorite fantasy book, and this one is more similar to it than TL or QOF. I was so happy to see Vaelin as the main/only POV, as it was his POV in Blood Song that made the book so special to me. I hope it continues in the finale, and please please please tell me the ending means what I think it does—-that would be amazing. Looking forward to the next installment!
