|Summary, etc.:|| "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"-- Provided by publisher.

The start of Ryan's Raven's Blade series finds Vaelin Al Sorna reluctantly dragged from retirement, where he serves Queen Lyrna as Tower Lord of the Northern Reaches. An old enemy reappears, luring Vaelin across the sea to the Far West into the Venerable Kingdom on a mission to rescue Sherin, a woman he loved yet sent away. He teams up with Commander Sho Tsai, whose shared interest in Sherin creates friction as they race across the country to locate their mutual friend, along with the Jade Princess, an immortal singer who has abandoned the High Temple built in her honor. With assistance from a Gifted friend, they use magic to track Sherin and find themselves drawn into a budding war with the Stahlhast, or Steel Horde, fanatics who revere their leader, Kehlbrand Reyerik, Darkblade of the Unseen, as a living god. In the ensuing battles, loyalties are tested, and heartfelt losses propel this band of heroes to new strategies, setting themâand the readersâup for the continuation of this epic adventure.
