The Raven have fought together for years, six men and an elf carving out a living as swords for hire in the wars that have torn Balaia apart, loyal only to themselves and their code.
But when they agree to escort a Xeteskian mage on a sinister mission they are pulled into a nightmare web of politics and ancient secrets that will change their lives forever. How is it that they are fighting for the Dark College of magic? Searching for the location of Dawnthief; a spell to end the world, a spell that must be cast.
Isolated, betrayed, in a land on the brink of catastrophe, The Raven are given no choice but to believe in a man who, cloaked by deceit and with a demon as a familiar, spins a wild story of a mortal threat so old it has passed into folklore.
James Barclay is in his fourties and lives in Teddington with his wife. He is a full-time writer.

Dawnthied is the first book of the Chronicles of The Raven trilogy. I decided to read this book, because it was recommended to me. In my opinion this book is okay, but I've read much better and more interesting fantasy books. This book is average fantasy, but it may be of interest to some readers.
