Three cheers for Barclay in creating this truly heroic tale of a group of mercenaries who must work together stop a terrible evil from destroying their land! Raven, a cynical band of mercenaries find themselves allies with a sinister college of dark magic to cast a powerful spell to save their world from
the vast army of barbarian wesmen who are lead by shaman and evil Wytch Lords. Barclay spices his epic novel with brutal and realistic battles scenes and powerful images of magic and sorcery.
