Legends of the Raven - Shadowheart - Hardback
War has come...
It has been smouldering for years, but now the conflict between Balaia's four colleges of magic has finally blazed into furious life.
Xetesk, the dark college, determined to impose its rule, now faces an alliance of Lystern and Dordova. Julatsa is crippled, still struggling to find Elven mages to raise its Heart and remake its link to Balaia's constant flow of Mana.
And so the armies mass, the people flee and the barons play the lethal game of promise and betrayal.
Caught in the flames of the war are The Raven. Three of the legendary mercenary band are dead. One of them struggles with the burgeoning power that could herald a new world and destroy the old. But the survivors will keep their promises to lost friends, to the enslaved Protectors and to the dragon, Sha-Kaan. To Balaia.
The raven will keep the faith. They will triumph. It's what they do...
