Anthony Ryan's debut novel Blood Song—the first book of the Raven's Shadow series—took the fantasy world by storm. Now, he continues that saga 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 honor 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 may not be strong enough to win.

Baker & Taylor
When his captive, an assassin from the Far West, tells him that the healer Sherin will be the first to die in a genocidal invasion, warrior Vaelin Al Sorna, racing against time to warn her, finds himself in the very center of a conflict that will open old wounds and rend new ones.

& Taylor

"Vaelin Al Sorna, the once-epic warrior and hero of many battles, is now the Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches. He spends his days policing the remote region against smugglers. But then he captures an assassin from the Far West. The thwarted killer tells Vaelin that the entire Far West is in peril of genocidal invasion and that the healer Sherin, now practicing her arts on the northern frontier of the lands of the Merchant Kings, will be one of the first to die. Vaelin sails for the Far West to warn her. And finds himself in the very center of a conflict that will open old wounds and rend new ones--if he survives at all"--
After being warned about a planned invasion of the Far West, Vaelin Al Sorna makes a journey to rescue Sherin, a lost love who has become a healer in the realm of the Merchant Kings and finds himself in the middle of a dangerous conflict.
