'Dark, twisty and excellent . . . Grimdark with heart' Mark Lawrence

For Ryhalt Galharrow, working for Crowfoot as a Blackwing captain is about as bad as it gets - especially when his orders are garbled, or incoherent, or impossible to carry out.

The Deep Kings are hurling fire from the sky, a ghost in the light known only as the Bright Lady had begun to manifest in visions across the city, and the cult that worship her grasp for power while the city burns around them.

Galharrow may not be able to do much about the cult - or about strange orders from the Nameless - but when Crowfoot's arcane vault is breached and an object of terrible power is stolen, he's propelled into a race against time to recover it. Only to do that, he needs answers, and finding them means travelling into nightmare: to the very heart of the Misery.

RAVENCRY is the second book in the Raven's Mark series, continuing the story that began with the award winning epic fantasy BLACKWING.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Ravencry is the perfect sequel and a book every fantasy author would aspire to write. * BOOK NEST *
This is top quality fantasy, assured and inventive in equal measure, with the kind of pacing that feels like a surging tsunami- an unstoppable maelstrom building to impossible heights before crashing down in a fury of destruction. I have no doubt this will be one of my best reads of the year. * FANTASY BOOK REVIEW *
Guaranteed already, this will be one of the best books I will read this year. * FANTASY BOOK REVIEW *
Ravencry doesn't retread old ground, and it doesn't try to be something completely different. Instead, it takes everything that was great about Blackwing and builds on it, making for an even better book... Ravencry was everything that I wanted in a sequel. * FANTASY INN *
In all the years I have read fantasy books I don't think I have ever come across a series that I have loved as much this and due to this Ed McDonald has become one of my favorite fantasy authors of all time (up there with Brandon Sanderson & J.R.R Tolkien). * OBSERVANT RAVEN BOOK REVIEWS *
An impressive work of fantasy, and one I think we'll be hearing more about. Highly recommended. * SF AND F REVIEWS *
Ed McDonald is an author to watch out for. I don't say things like this lightly. I read a lot of fantasy, and I don't hesitate to say that this will be one of the biggest fantasy debuts of the year. McDonald has given us the first instalment of what looks to be a very interesting series. * THE BOOK BAG *
A very impressive debut, with complex characters and an imaginative setting that does much to impress the reader. * SFF WORLD *
Overall, Blackwing is a fast paced novel that is likely to become a classic within the genre. It can be read as a self-contained story, but with a clear opening for the series to continue. This is the best debut novel in the genre this year. A joy to read. * STARBURST *
I heartily recommend this. * Adrian Selby, author of Snakewood *
Vivid characters, visceral combat and a twist of an ending that I really should have seen coming and didn't (wizards are bastards and here's the proof). Brilliant use of magic as technology, too, like lightbulbs and water heaters. Excellent gender representation . . . Suffice to say, I bloody loved it and I am officially an Ed McDonald fan. He deserves to go far. * Elspeth Cooper, author of THE SONGS OF THE EARTH *

“If Blackwing was great, then Ravencry is excellent.”

When I reviewed Blackwing last year, I noted that it was a novel that “did everything very well”.

Blackwing was a great book, but I thought it stopped just short of excellent. It had solid characters, an engaging... More

“Packed with action, foul-mouthed characters and enough twists and turns to keep you on your toes”

Blackwing, book 1 in the series, was one of my favourite books I read last year. I was eager to hear more about the world, and what might have happened following the events at the end of book one. It's four years... More
