The Ravanmark Saga is a series of epic fantasy novels, of the type I used to affectionately call “doorstopper fantasy”. The first involves the transport of a young music teacher named Alannys to the land of Ravanmark, where music is a form of magic, along with painting, sculpting and many others. Despite the desperate circumstances that drove Alannys to Ravanmark, she soon begins to suspect that things are not as the seem there–the place could be deadly dangerous to her, if she doesn’t learn what she can do, and fast.
Strange and often uncontrollable magic with dangerous and unpredictable costs, secret plots to overthrow the monarchy, and prophesied heroes with the power to remake the world–does this sound like something that might interest you? If so, here are links to the series at all major retailers:
The series has its own website at www.ravanmark.com, where you can find more information on Ravanmark and the people who inhabit it.
