From deep within a dark dimension beyond all that is known by the world of men, the soul of a great raven broke free, tearing through the Veil between worlds. The brutal rent in the Veil gave out a scream of warning resonating through the minds of human and Sidhe alike. The eerie sound tainted all souls, though only a few could hear it, and even fewer understood its meaning.
The raven’s cold, jet eyes took in the world of the living beneath the steady beat of its great wings. Its time was near.
Death’s Dark Wings is a bold and visceral revisiting of the story of 1066, in a world where magic and technology clash.
‘Raven Dane presents uncommon, alternate history, woven with a dark sensibility, and told with unbridled imagination.’ – Stan Nicholls
