Two victories over the Ther-lor are not enough. To achieve true freedom for all, Aidan must destroy Sirak and the threat of the undead army completely. However, as Aidan and the other knights prepare for battle, they appear divided as they become occupied with their individual battles. Consequently, Aidan is concerned and distraught over the plights of his friends, but he must find the strength and the focus he needs to convince more armies to join him in the final battle against Sirak. This, unfortunately, proves to be a Herculean task as Aidan is faced with mockery and disbelief by the people he aims to save. Will Aidan succeed in bringing together the right amount of warriors to go up against Sirak's ever-increasing army? Find out in The Cry of a Raven by Robert Blanchard.

Robert Blanchard brings us the wildest and most intense book in his highly captivating series, and its intensity matches that of the Game of Thrones series. This was my favorite installment in the series because of the many exciting inclusions: intelligent battle strategies, armies, and creatures with different abilities and strengths, having to restrategize as the war wages on, and a fight against an enemy that is almost impossible to beat. The Cry of a Raven is divided into two sections. The first part awoke my empathy as it depicts the conflict between the characters while the second section is fast-paced and electrifying and is centered on the final battle and the preparation for it. I seriously wished this wasn't the last installment because I wanted more! The surprising twist at the end ensured this.
