Queen of Fire is the spectacular conclusion to the internationally bestselling Raven's Shadow series - a powerful tale of desperate battles, deadly politics and epic adventure. EMPIRES WILL FALL Queen Lyrna has survived the bloody siege of Alltor. Now she must rally her troops and take back the capital from the Volarian invaders. But driving her hated enemy out of the Realm will not satisfy her lust for vengeance - she wants to pursue them across the ocean and burn their empire to ashes. To do so, she must place her faith in the Seventh Order: men and women who wield terrible powers, born of the Dark itself. Vaelin Al Sorna would sacrifice his life for his queen - and may yet have to. Only by unmasking the Volarians' mysterious Ally can the tide of war be turned. To this end, Vaelin must travel deep into the icebound north, in search of a man who cannot die - and he must do it without the aid of his blood song, which has fallen ominously silent . . .

The Black Song is the action-packed conclusion to the Raven's Blade series by Anthony Ryan, which began with The Wolf's Call . The Steel Horde has laid waste to the Venerable Kingdom, unleashing a storm of fire and blood. Now the leader of this mighty host - Kehlbrand, the warlord who thinks himself a god - turns his eyes to the other merchant kingdoms. No one can stop his divine conquest. No one, perhaps, except Vaelin Al Sorna. Yet Vaelin is on the run, his own army in disarray. Worse, the new blood song he has acquired is as much a curse as a blessing, and seeks to guide him down a path far darker than he could have imagined . . .
Armies will clash and ancient secrets will be revealed in The Empire of Ashes , the thrilling conclusion to Anthony Ryan's Draconis Memoria series. The White Drake's army has cut a bloody swathe across the world, leaving nothing but ash in its wake. Thousands of innocents have died beneath its blades and countless more will surely follow. Only small-time criminal Claydon Torcreek and master spy Lizanne Lethridge - along with their ragtag band of allies - stand between the white drake's fury and the world's end. To save the future, they must delve into the past - and unravel a timeless mystery that might just turn the tide once and for all.
Anthony Ryan's Raven's Shadow trilogy took the fantasy world by storm. Now he returns to the world of this acclaimed series with The Wolf's Call , an action-packed new adventure featuring fan-favourite Vaelin Al-Sorna. A STORM IS COMING Vaelin Al Sorna is a living legend. It was his leadership that overthrew empires, his blade that won hard-fought battles, and his sacrifice that saved the Unified Realm from destruction. Yet Vaelin has turned his back on prestige and glory to live a quiet life in the Realm's northern reaches. Now whispers have come across the sea of an army called the Steel Horde, let by a man who believes himself a god. Vaelin has no desire to fight another war, but when he learns that Sherin, the woman he lost long ago, has fallen into the Horde's grasp, he resolves to confront this powerful new threat. To do so, Vaelin travels to the realms of the Merchant Kings, a land ruled by honour and intrigue. And as the drums of war echo across kingdoms riven by conflict, Vaelin learns that there are some battles even he cannot hope to win.
