Fulfilling the promise Book One made, The Fury reveals the Chronicles of the Raven as a Fantasy of consistent, incredible, expanding and intricately detailed depth as old intrigues come to fruition or wither depending while revealing
layers that were only hinted at and others utterly unexpected as the
world of Hortus and story itself reaches beyond the borders of Daffyd. A
story that is now far more than a Celtic Fantasy about the women and
men of Green Mount and Lachland protecting their homes from the savage
Barbárs hordes, the Church of the Five, and the blood-magicking Angor
shamans. Powers far greater are now at play as ancient, forgotten legends come to life, and one of Doersch's great
qualities is that he forces to reader to be as keen-eyed as the best of
archers to gain full understanding.
But understanding or not – and the Five know many of the characters themselves are in the not category – the Autumn Equinox is nigh and now the fate of the world depends upon the Raven Corvus Corax and his friends ascending and matching the ancient call: The battle cry goes out as swords are drawn… "Protect the Tor!" In other words, Book Three will open with a literally earth-shaking battle.
