Title:  The Raven

Author:  John Lawson

Publisher:  PublishAmerica

Reviewer: Jeff Edwards – AAA Member

A wild and violent tale of exotic lands and dark magic

John Lawson has done it again. The Raven is a wild and violent tale of exotic lands and dark magic.

As surely as good must triumph over evil, a true and holy knight cannot be defeated by one who serves the powers of darkness. God will not permit such a thing to come to pass. With this knowledge in his heart, Guiromélans leads his army into battle against the witch Esmeree. She is an accursed creature, whose very existence is heresy. He is Sir Guiromélans of the Iron Fist. He is a Raven  a Paladin of God. He cannot fail in his sacred mission to destroy the witch and slaughter her minions. But when his righteous army lays broken and bleeding on the field of battle, Guiromélans is forced to reexamine the very core of his own beliefs. Evil has conquered good. Can the powers of the witch be stronger than the might of God? No. That’s not possible. God has allowed this defeat. But why?

Guiromélans has never failed in his duties as a Raven. He wears the silver symbol of his order with honor, and he always strives to uphold the causes of righteousness. What has he done to merit dishonor and failure?

In his quest to uncover the answer, he travels to the Southern Territories where he begins a crusade against heresy. He cannot hope to understand God’s displeasure, but perhaps he can find atonement by striking down the enemies of his faith. He battles against demons, ghouls, sorcerers, and shades. And every clash with death brings him closer to the truth. Or does it?

The Raven is dark, intense, and compelling. John Lawson’s second novel of the Seven Kingdoms is as intricate and disturbing as Witch Ember. The people and cultures in his books are detailed and absorbing.

As with Lawson’s first novel, the sexual undertones, violence, and pagan themes may be too much for some readers. But if you’re ready for breathless adventure, saddle up and ride with The Raven.
