Gods meddle in the fates of men, men play with the fates of gods, and a pretender must be cast down from the throne in this masterful first fantasy novel from Ann Leckie, New York Times bestselling author and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards.
"It's a delight to read something so different, so wonderful and strange."-Patrick Rothfuss
"Absolutely wonderful...utterly brilliant."- The New York Times Book Review
For centuries, the kingdom of Iraden has been protected by the god known as the Raven.
He watches over his territory from atop a tower in the powerful port of Vastai. His will is enacted through the Raven's Lease, a human ruler chosen by the god himself. His magic is sustained by the blood sacrifice that every Lease must offer. And under the Raven's watch, the city flourishes.
But the Raven's tower holds a secret. Its foundations conceal a dark history that has been waiting to reveal itself...and to set in motion a chain of events that could destroy Iraden forever.

Ann Leckie provides a different perspective for this fantasy with her choice of a very unusual narrator. And insightful and intriguing read.

The Raven Tower has a well-paced story and interesting use of first- and second- person perspective. The worldbuilding with the history of the gods, and the extent of their powers, is fascinating. That said, the human characters fell a little flat. Overall though, a good read.
