Barclay's Dawnthief was a huge bestseller. Now, this master of fantasy is back with another action-packed adventure featuring the Raven, a band of mercenaries consisting of six men and one elf. The rivalry between the four colleges of magic in the land of Balaia has done nothing but bring misery to the citizens. Now, the elves are dying by the thousands, struck down by a terrible and mysterious affliction. Ilkar, one of the Raven, knows he is in a unique position to discover the cause of the suffering and stop it. Over many years the group's prowess and sheer lethality have become legendary. But, even heroes, like elves, are mortal.
