He is the grand master of the shield wall and describes a battle in such detail that one can hear the desperate curses, the clang of metal on shield, smell the ill-fated breath of those facing death, and hear the exaltations of those delivering it.
Even the bond Raven forges with the men who have taken him from the only life he remembers is as unpredictable as his ability to survive and forge a new identity among them as an equal.
