Anthony Ryan's A Raven's Shadow Book 3: Queen Of Fire Gets A Cover And Official Synopsis

My first encounter with the name Anthony Ryan happened a few years ago when I was scanning for books from A to Z and surfing on the website of one of my favorite bookstores. I was looking for new authors that would interest me and lo I found Blood Song, which is the first book of the said author. The novel was an instant favorite of mine and so same is true with the author.

Some months after, the same author published Tower Lord, but still I haven't had a chance to get a copy yet. I browsed for some review and it was quite troubling because many find it not at par with its predecessor... So came the doubt if I should continue with the series... and then I decided I would. Now the third book in this planned trilogy has been revealed as well and it is called Queen of Fire.

Herein you can see the official cover and synopsis of Queen of Fire by Anthony Ryan.

Queen of Fire by Anthony Ryan

Upon seeing these updates my enthusiasm has returned. So I decided that I will buy both the second and this final book together come July next year.

And here is the author showing off the manuscript of the book:


In the thrilling conclusion to the “deftly and originally executed” (Booklist) New York Times bestselling trilogy, Vaelin Al Sorna must help his Queen reclaim her Realm. Only his enemy has a dangerous new collaborator, one with powers darker than Vaelin has ever encountered...

“The Ally is there, but only ever as a shadow, unexplained catastrophe or murder committed at the behest of a dark vengeful spirit. Sorting truth from myth is often a fruitless task.”

After fighting back from the brink of death, Queen Lyrna is determined to repel the invading Volarian army and regain the independence of the Unified Realm. Except, to accomplish her goals, she must do more than rally her loyal supporters. She must align herself with forces she once found repugnant — those who possess the strange and varied gifts of the Dark — and take the war to her enemy’s doorstep.

Victory rests on the shoulders of Vaelin Al Sorna, now named Battle Lord of the Realm. However, his path is riddled with difficulties. For the Volarian enemy has a new weapon on their side, one that Vaelin must destroy if the Realm is to prevail — a mysterious Ally with the ability to grant unnaturally long life to her servants. And defeating one who cannot be killed is a nearly impossible feat, especially when Vaelin’s blood-song, the mystical power which has made him the epic fighter he is, has gone ominously silent...

Queen of Fire by Anthony Ryan will hit bookstores on July 7, 2015.
