Ravenheart, the 3rd in the Rigante series. You will need to have read the first 2 in the series, Sword in the Storm and Midnight Falcon, to really understand what is happening in the story.

The story traces the lives of the some the principle characters throughout the book, from the quick tempered young Kaelin Ring, who is only to ready to kill, his Aunt Maev who with her excellent business sense makes money than the law allows, the local lord who is cruel to both the Rigante and even his own son. Jaim Grymauch who likes nothing better than to steal prize bulls. As the Wyrd attempts to restore the balance of magic in the land.

A bit of a slow start to this book in my opinion, and slightly confusing as the first part of the book focuses in part on a character that is not central to the story. As I have started reading the following book however, I understand we the character was presented in such a way. About half way the story is gathering momentum and I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the tale. Gemmell has a way with building purpose and motivation for his characters, and even though it can be a bit too much at times, it does make you feel for each individual. Read the first two books first to get the backdrop and you'll be ready to enjoy this!

David Gemmell was one of the best storytellers ever. All his books are fast paced, easy to read, very suspenseful and they leave you with a strong desire to read more of his books and adventures. He paints his characters and worlds full of color and makes you feel part of his stories. I have reread all his books many times and they never fail to thrill me and make me want to read them yet again.

Never before have I been afraid that I was going to wake up my wife because I was crying too loud next to her until I read this book. I am a 6'4 230 lb. firefighter for Gods sake I can't be crying in bed next to my wife I said to myself. Little good it did. This book from it's beginning sucks you into a world of one character that I found myself apparently very attached to, Jaim Graimauch. He is the essence of everything great about Gemmell's writing. He is the type of character that inspires me to be better as a human being. I am not an overly emotional guy but this books ending is a goddamn tear jerker. Tough guys beware read it alone. F'ing five stars
