THE BEAST OF BASQUE
Adventure One of Tales of the Ravensdaughter
When the Serpent Father Fire
Loves the Mother Water Wind,
When L’Orku’s breath of thunder
‘Cross the mighty sky ascends;
When wings of ravens black
Stir shadows in the mist,
The Realme may kiss Mortalia
And a new child will be blessed.
When Alerice Linden dies at the beginning of a tale, you know you’re in for something new. The Beast of Basque tracks Alerice’s descent into the Evherealme, where she becomes the champion of the Raven Queen. Assisting her is Oddwyn, the gender-fluid, impish Herald. On her quest, Alerice meets Kreston Dühalde, a former military captain. And what task does the Raven Queen assign? Slay a two-faced beast that preys on the souls of children. Only tasks aren’t always as straightforward as they seem. Nor are the reasons for them nor the comrade Alerice meets along the way. Enjoy The Beast of Basque, Adventure One of Tales of The Ravensdaughter.
THE THIEF OF SOULS
Adventure Two of Tales of the Ravensdaughter
The children who walk shadows
Will know the Evherealme.
It floats within their dreams
A place they may call home.
Their souls will grow and prosper
As through the Realme they stride.
They will find nourishment,
A source of lasting pride.
Having successfully slain the ‘beast’ of Basque, Alerice Linden, the Realme’s new Walker, is tasked with discovering the identity of a thief who has been stealing souls from the Evherealme. Is it Lolladoe and her clan of forest fauns? Is it Vygar, the silvery mystic known to many as the Wolf Prince? And is Kreston Dühalde, the man Alerice is coming to trust, a true friend, or might he be an unwilling spy for the King of Shadows? Erin Hunt Rado continues to breathe new life into High Fantasy with another action-packed tale, The Thief of Souls, Adventure Two of Tales of The Ravensdaughter.
THE WIZARD AND THE WYLD
Adventure Three of Tales of the Ravensdaughter
Those kissed upon their birth
Will know Mortalia’s ways.
Their hearts will always guide them
Through self-doubt and its haze.
For Walkers are true beings
Who rightly know their minds.
Inspired by the gods
Their worth is well-defined.
Gaining talent as a Realme Walker, Alerice Linden – the Ravensdaughter – discovers that a wizard and a clan of mercenary barbarians are being set against one another. Why? It’s anyone’s guess, but Alerice is determined to find out. However, this is not the path that the Raven Queen wishes Alerice to pursue, and seeing stubbornness, the queen strips Alerice of her status. Undeterred, Alerice continues to investigate and discovers that the culprit is none other than a rogue goddess. Is this enough to restore Alerice to the Raven Queen? Find out in The Wizard and the Wyld, Adventure Three of Tales of The Ravensdaughter.
RIPS IN THE ETHER
Adventure Four of Tales of the Ravensdaughter
The Realme will ne’re forsake them
These Walkers who defend
The king and queen below
For whom they make their stand.
Trusted by their masters
A Walker will not fail.
Honored by their masters
They welcome duty’s call.
A rogue goddess was the least of the problems facing the Evherealme. Rips have formed that threaten to destabilize the world below. Alerice Linden, the restored Ravensdaughter, must seek aid from the sorceress Allya, servant of Sukaar, Father God of Fire. They must heal the Realme before it ruptures. As always, Kreston Dühalde fights at Alerice’s side, but the King of Shadows has tasked him with betraying the Raven Queen, and the only way to do that is to betray Alerice. Does she forgive him? The answer is waiting in Rips in the Ether, Adventure Four of Tales of The Ravensdaughter.
MISTRESS OF HER OWN GAME
Adventure Five of Tales of the Ravensdaughter
A rare thing is a Walker,
So, gods below: Take care!
Groom them and protect them.
Do not let them despair.
For when a Walker rises,
Realme glory in their eyes,
Mortalia will breathe softly
As Walkers touch the skies.
With Alerice growing ever stronger, the King of Shadows is determined to undermine her. The best path to accomplish this is to attack sanctuaries belonging to the Raven Queen. Alerice successfully defends them all, with Kreston Dühalde still fighting at her side. The King of Shadows seems on the verge of releasing him, which means that he and Alerice will be free to live their own lives. But when the Raven Queen orders Alerice to attack one of the king’s sanctuaries and kill the guardian monks, Alerice cannot accept. And when the Raven Queen restores Kreston’s locked mind, he knows he can never be with her. It’s all in Mistress of Her Own Game, Adventure Five of Tales of The Ravensdaughter.

Have risen now to fame.
They know their place and power.
They know their true acclaim.
Regard them now, these Walkers,
Gods above and gods below.
The Realme has kissed Mortalia
Forever now, and long ago.
Two armies are about to collide. Alerice’s task is to bring the souls of the fallen to the Raven Queen for measuring. Kreston’s task is to slaughter as many men as possible so their souls can fly directly to the King of Shadows. The rivalry between the queen and king has finally reached the breaking point, which means that Alerice and Kreston are bound to face one another in combat. Yet Alerice still believes that she can free Kreston from the king’s enslavement. She still believes that she can bring balance to the Evherealme. Discover if she does in The Raven’s Daughter, Adventure Six of Tales of The Ravensdaughter.
