The Black Raven returns with more exploits and stories to entrance a reader in his devious and occasionally nefarious exploits in assassinations and burglary. Steeped with the beautifully descriptive world and just a hint of magic with reappearances from previous characters it is a wonder to read. Definitely surpassed expectations. One gripe is I would have loved to see more come of the end parts of the shadows arc from the last book.
The combination of Seth Skorkowsky's outstanding writing and Bob Bray's great narration is enough to sell me any book. This collection of Tales of the Black Raven is a Sequel to Mountain of Daggers, another really excellent book. The Black Raven reminds me a lot of Shadowspawn from the Thieves World anthologies. A thief willing to kill when necessary, confident in their abilities, with legendary reputations. The stories in this book take place all over, and deal with some old characters, as well as some new ones I hope to see again. The action is fast paced, with solid plotting and worldbuilding that is excellent, really letting you get a feel of the envitonment. The characters are all well done, especially The Black Raven, Arhen. Whether on sea or on land, there is no situation Arhen can't eventually work his way around. Any fans of tales involving a charming rougue, such as the aformentioned Shawdowspawn stories, shold really enjoy this. Bob Bray's Narration is spot on as always, really bringing the characters to lives of their own.

I am enjoying everything about this series. Terrific story and a flawed, but lovable main character. Seth Skorkowsky just keeps giving us what we are looking for in these books. Loved it!
