The first Ascendants, Arducius, Gorian, Mirron and Ossacer, who brought the awesome power of magic into the world, are no longer teenagers but still face uncertainty and persecution. The Conquord's Advocate, Herine Del Aglios, is increasingly isolated by her support of the Ascendancy. Paul Jhered, Exchequer of the Gatherers, is her only true ally. And while three Ascendants strive to gain acceptance in the face of continuing demands by the Order of Omniscient for their deaths, Gorian's power has grown, his grip on reality weakening. Meanwhile, on the borders of the Conquord discontent still grows. The war with Tsard was costly, Tsardon ambitions still run high and there are rumours. Rumours that should be dismissed as ridiculous. Stories of people once dead, walking the earth once more.

Adventure fiction. Another action-packed adventure from the new master of fantasy launches Legends of The Raven, a new trilogy starring the cult heroes made famous in Chronicles of The Raven. The Raven travel to a new continent in search of mages to help the ruined college of Julatsa rebuild ... and find themselves in the midst of an ancient curse - a curse that has unleashed a plague that threatens to wipe out the elven race. Barclay excels with another tale that pitches The Raven against the clock and unseen foes. Full of desperate fights and secret betrayals the story also fills in more of Balaia's history and delves deeper into the ancient emnities between the colleges. Barclay has created a wonderfully appealing group of heroes and with every book their history grows and the land they live in becomes wider and richer. This is landmark fantasy in the making
