Description:

Anthony Ryan’s debut novel Blood Song – book one of the Raven’s Shadow series – took the fantasy world by storm. The sequels, Tower Lord and Queen of Fire were 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.’



‘The Wolf’s Call’ US Audiobook Pre-Order and ‘Raven’s Shadow’ Reading Order

I was pleased and surprised to find that the pre-order page for the US audiobook edition of The Wolf’s Call is already up on audible.com several months before it usually appears: https://www.audible.com/pd/The-Wolfs-Call-Audiobook/1984890816

Also, with the publication of The Wolf’s Call due in July, some people have been asking about the best reading order for the Raven’s Shadow series. To date, the series consists of three full-length novels, three novellas and one short story. As the novellas contain some mild spoilers for the novels, I’d recommend reading in the following order:

Blood Song

Tower Lord

Queen of Fire

The Lord Collector

A Duel of Evils

The Lady of Crows

Many Are the Dead

However, here’s the reading order if you want to follow the strict chronology of the overall narrative:

A Duel of Evils

Many Are the Dead

Blood Song

The Lord Collector

The Lady of Crows

Tower Lord

Queen of Fire
