C. N. Lesleyabout this book: Darkspire Reaches is a dark, romantic fantasy. A child from a wandering tribe is left as a sacrifice to the wyvern, but a woman from another race saves it for her own purposes. Raven grows up a stranger in her home village, shunned because she is the lone dark-haired child among a sea of blond, blue-eyed people. She is servant and apprentice to her foster-mother, so when the order comes through to condemn all witches they must run for their lives.
While she was safe in her village, Raven fears the wilderness for the wyvern hunts for her, as he always will. The creature she fears above all will never give up his prey. Raven will learn there are worse things than the beast before he catches her. Now she must accept her doom even as the emperor's troops hunt them both.
"Rather than the epic quests and pitched battles of most fantasy sagas, this one is much more tightly focused upon just a few characters, their unique situation and their struggle to survive and learn to accept each other as they await the event at the story's climax.
"What do you do when you don't fit in anywhere--not with your adoptive tribe, the Angressi, or even with your own people, the First Born? This is Raven's life."
