James Barclay-Dawnthief Chronicles

March 19, 2008

I have to be careful here as I correspond with James. This book is fantasy pure and simple, I grew up reading this stuff and have never moved on. This was a refreshing change from fantasy books that take themselves too seriously, but on a harder edge it makes you care about the characters and James is a master storyteller.

The Raven have fought together for years, six men carving out a living as swords for hire in the war that have torn Balaia apart, loyal only to themselves and their code. But when they agree to escort a Xesteskian mage on a secret mission they are pulled into a world of politics and ancients secrets. For the first time the Raven cannot even trust their own strength and prowess, for the first time their code is in doubt. How is it that they are fighting for one of the most evil colleges of magic known? Searching for the secret location of Dawnthief; a spell that could end the world? Aiming not to destroy it but to cast it. DAWNTHIEF is a fast paced epic about a band of all too human heroes.
