Publisher's Summary

Eight hundred years have passed since King Connavar of the Rigante and his bastard son, Bane, defeated the invading army of Stone. In that time, Connavar has become a legend, and the Rigante have lost the freedom so many gave their lives to preserve. A conquered people, they live and die under the iron rule of the Varlish, their culture all but destroyed.

One woman remains who follows the ancient paths once trod by the Rigante. She is the Wyrd of Wishing Tree Wood, and she alone knows the nature of the evil soon to be unleashed on a doomed and unsuspecting world. In a perilous land, facing an uncertain destiny, she pins her initial hopes on two men: Jaim Grymauch, the giant Rigante fighter, a man haunted by his failure to save the friend he loved from betrayal, and Kaelin Ring, a youth whose deadly talents will earn him the enmity of all Varlish. One will become the Ravenheart, an outlaw leader whose daring exploits will inspire the Rigante. The other will forge a legend and light the fires of rebellion.

The Wyrd knows that ultimately all hopes will rest on a third man. Of the bloodline of Connavar the King, he will need to overcome generations of fear and hatred if he is to achieve his destiny. For he is a Varlish nobleman, and - worse - the son of the Rigante's greatest enemy....

:’)

This series makes me tear up with joy and pride. There are simple lessons of true heroics and morality that are so well illustrated to be able to touch the soul.

  • Overall
    5 out of 5 stars

fantastic!

don't miss this one! as with all Gemmell's books, it pulls you in from the first wordd and keeps you there to the last. the narrator is excellent! ive seen reviews castigating her for being a female narrator and i was hesitant but she did an absolutely wonderful job. her range of voice was excellent and all the charactors were unique. A truly great book!

horrible narrator. I can't take this seriously

this lady should be reading children's books. Gemmell books were meant to be ready by strong men

I loved this book, Jaim Grymauch is wonderful

This book is fantastic, the build up to the ultimate scene of Jaim saving Maeve is simply heartwrenching.

Awful pronunciation and a fake accent

I've loved this book for years but this reading is so bad I can't finish it.

Almost every name is mispronounced, (Saint Persis Al-ba-tah-knee, and gay-zee Macon).

superb book not 100% on the reader

all the rigante series of books are brilliant, can't help but feel it would have been better read by a Scottish person though

The rigante are not from the west of England!
