Waterstones Says

Displaying as sure a touch with the fantasy genre as she does in her masterly science fiction, Anne Leckie crafts a mesmerising world of regal hubris, bold usurpers and courtly intrigue. The first part of a major new fantasy series, The Raven Tower is quite superbly realised.

A usurper has claimed the throne. Invaders amass at the borders. And they have made their alliances with enemy gods...

For centuries the kingdom of Iraden has been protected by a god known as the Raven. But in their hour of need, the Raven speaks nothing to its people. It is into this unrest that the warrior Eolo - aide to the true heir to the throne - arrives. In seeking to help his master reclaim his city, Eolo discovers that the Raven's Tower holds a secret. Its foundations conceal a dark history that has been waiting to reveal itself... and to set in motion a chain of events that could destroy Iraden forever.

A triumph of the imagination, The Raven Tower is the first fantasy novel by Ann Leckie, New York Times bestselling author and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards. Gods meddle in the fates of men, men play with the fates of gods and a pretender must be cast down from the throne in this breathtaking fantasy masterpiece.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I've been reading fantasy my whole life. After all these years, it's a delight to read something so different, so wonderful and strange' - Patrick Rothfuss

'A powerhouse epic of humans and gods at war, deeply imagined and profoundly thrilling. There are echoes of Shakespeare and Le Guin in The Raven Tower, but its strange dark brilliance could only have come from Ann Leckie' - Lev Grossman
