DAVID GEMMELL RAVENHEART PDF

The Rigante have been reduced to a marginalised highland clan under the boot-heel of zealously religious southern invaders. As the embers of rebellion begin to smoulder, Orphan Kaelin Ring grows to manhood under the tutelage of his surrogate father Jaim Grymauch. This book marked something of a departure for Gemmell with its restricted setting and a plot that is more family drama than fantasy saga, but the pace and attention to character are as sharp as ever. Probably best read back-to-back with the sequel Stormrider. Ravenheart works for me on two separate levels. The first is as a standard heroic fantasy story, the tale of men and women working through their trials and tribulations in order to find the strength to stand as a hero, defiant against hopeless odds.

Although its not quite standard. The second level is that, behind the action, its quite a vivid statement on privilege and oppression, family and machismo, particularly when taken in conjunection with its sequel Stormrider. It also adds a sense of inspiration to it. And I also come away thoroughly entertained.

Early life[ edit ] "Some of the other children had no father, but their lack was honorable [ sic ]. He was a hero. Most of the blows came from other children, but sometimes adults too would weigh in. Raised alone by his mother until the age of 6, he experienced a harsh upbringing in a tough urban area, suffering bullying and taunts from his peers, partly due to the absence of his father, [1] and often sustained serious injuries through fighting. Of applicants, he was probably the least qualified for the position but was hired owing to his display of arrogance during the interview, which was mistaken for self-confidence. He went on to work as a journalist for several local newspapers in East Sussex , five for which he eventually became editor-in-chief. He later admitted that the book "was so bad it could curdle milk at 50 paces.
