New York:: TOR / Tom Doherty Associates,, (1995.). Fine in fine dust jacket.. First printing. The author's first novel, a tale of magic and intrigue set in the world of King Arthur. "Micah of Greenfarm, nicknamed "Raven," is a younger son of a large family on one of the tenant farms that surround Camelot. As a poor farm lad, he is more distant from King Arthur than if they were separated by a vast ocean. But when his beloved sister is raped and murdered by four of Arthur's drunken nights, Raven swears an oath of vengeance far above his station." 384 pp.

Raven (a.k.a. Micah of Greenfarm), the young son of a poor tenant farmer, lives just outside of Camelot. Like other poor farmers, he has no interaction with the reigning monarch, the great King Arthur, but his station means nothing to him when some of King Arthur’s knights rape and murder his sister. Raven swears an oath that transcends social station and nobility; he vows to avenge his sister and sets out to do so. Becoming a member of the royal household, Raven manages to get closer and closer to his targets. A combination of both fact and fiction, Cary James’s novel is full of adventure, intrigue, passion, hatred, and questioned loyalty.
