Book V of Raven, Swordsmistress of Chaos. On the night of the Summer Gathering in Haral, The Black One arose from the depths, killing, torturing and dismembering its victims. Panic ruled the City.  The Priests of Lord Vedast claimed that, in fulfilling an ancient prophecy, Raven and Spellbinder were responsible for the carnage.  The two find themselves powerless bait for the monster – a devil who aimed to make Raven Mistress of the World and the murderer of Spellbinder.
