Being a Raven is an honor amongst warriors. A sacred title held by an elite group known for their cunning... and their victories. Guiromelans is one such warrior. However, despite his tactical skill and his enduring faith in God, he is defeated in battle and a vast majority of his army is destroyed. Now, having been left in disgrace and with virtually no one by his side, he is left wondering if his faith was misplaced. His search for an answer and reclamation of his faith leads him on a voyage of personal discovery across the land.

This is a sequel to Witch Ember, Lawsonís first novel from a few years ago. And it is a worthy complement to the original. For people who enjoy fantasy novels, this is a good one. Lawson does a good job of giving humanity to his protagonist, something that is rarely expressed effectively in fantasy or scifi novels. Never at a loss for an adjective, he also does a great job of establishing the setting for a scene. If you are a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic Lord of the Rings series, then this is right up your alley.
