The Black Song – Book Two of the Raven’s Blade – Now Available for Pre-Order

The US and UK editions of The Black Song – the second and final book in The Raven’s Blade series – are now available for pre-order. No covers yet but watch this space for a reveal soon. As usual, the audiobook pre-order won’t appear for a while, I’ll post an update when it does. 

The Black Song is currently scheduled for release next year in the UK on July 2nd and in the US on August 4th. These dates may change so be sure to check back for updates closer to publication day.

Here’s the description for the US edition:

A matchless warrior is pitted against a near-God in the second epic installment of the Raven’s Blade series.

 It has long been our lot in life, brother, to do what others can’t.

Vaelin Al Sorna was known across the realm as the greatest of warriors, but he thought battles were behind him. He was wrong.

After a costly defeat by the Darkblade, Vaelin’s forces are shattered, while the self-proclaimed immortal and his army continue their terrible march. But during the clash, Vaelin regained some of the dark magic that once gave him unrivalled skill in battle. And though the fight he has been drawn into seems near unwinnable, the song that drives him now desires the blood of his enemy above all else…
