Audio book coming soon!


Faced with increasing pressure from rebels, the tyrant king of Dargenn must force a war with the rival nation of Relan to unite the country behind him. To help create chaos, he turns to the most feared assassin in the world, the Raven, a man cursed by ancient demons and forced to kill at their whim; if he fails, he dies. Using his knowledge of the Raven's masters, the king forces the assassin into a contract to kill the one man who might threaten his plans, a powerful sorcerer and scholar named Enias.

But the king may have just handed the Raven the key to breaking his curse once and for all.

A fresh new voice in the tradition of Brandon Sanderson and Tracy Hickman.

~Kristen D. Randle

"...this was a five star read for me."

"Suffice it to say it gets better, deeper and more surprising the further we go."

"[feels] like a mix between Sanderson's Mistborn and Bancroft's Arm of the Sphinx."

"Overall, this is definitely one to put on your list--especially if you're looking for something with the wonderment of Mistborn."

"I'm thoroughly impressed by the rich world-building."

"...the scenes are explosive, strong and easy to visualise."

"The power is in the detail, the author’s creative energy crackling through every aspect of the novel...This is a story with dark themes, but it doesn’t stop it being a fun read." 

"From the everyday to the brutal’s all cleverly interconnected...And it never ceases to be surprising."

 "It’s amusing and unexpected, a real treat of a story that I can’t wait to continue... Give it a go, it’s a worthy addition to your TBR."

"the characters are three dimensional, unique personalities that fit together like a jigsaw."

"By Raven’s Call is an excellent debut...Devenport has shown he can hold his own in the genre."
