“Rise of the Raven” chronicles the efforts of the Mage of NorAmen as he struggles to free his master from the demon-haunted plains of the nether dimension where he has been exiled for over fourteen hundred years. Striving to prevent him are the five wizards of the Khand. The keepers of the sacred Watchstone, they have sworn to uphold the integrity of the barrier that separates the two worlds. In the midst of all this, a young boy becomes a man and discovers a great power that he never knew he possessed, but only time will tell if it will be enough to save his friends.
Here are some of the comments that have been made by people who have read the book:
This is a fast paced, vivid and imaginative jaunt into a fantasy world that is dark and rift with demons. Definitely worth the read and very much in the path of some of the greater fantasy writers.
This story is filled with great battle scenes and Mr Drennon shows his true talent when writing them. His descriptions are vivid and exciting and, once I got into this part of the book, I was completely engrossed. I couldn’t put the book down.
Rise of the Raven is an enjoyable fantasy book by a new author. The battles were very well written . . .
Rise of the Raven is a classic swords and sorcery tale with all the conventions of the genre intact. The battle scenes are well-constructed and addictive. The players are well set up and the payoffs are very satisfying.
. . . a high, (but dark), sword and sorcery type fantasy with gloriously written battle scenes, and even a little romance.
. . . has all the hallmarks of a promising author still learning his craft, and I would recommend that any lover of the fantasy genre would enjoy this book
The battle scenes were exceptional and entertaining. If you like the fantasy genre, definitely try this one.
