The proud Rigante are an oppressed people. Their days of glory hundreds of years in the past, they know are forced to bow their heads to the Varlish, who do everything to make the Rigante feel inferior. Rigante are not allowed to carry swords, have their own restricted sections at feasts, and are despised by nearly all Varlish.

Originally a raveneart and harmonic religion, The Tree Cult is now ruled by corrupt and evil men, who quickly resort to threats and torture. There are few Rigante left who can and are willing to stand up against the Varlish these days, most of them joined with the Black Rigante. Frequent hangings and other punishments keep most of ravenheaet to fearful to end their oppression.

When he decides to take justice in his own hands after an atrocity he flees his old village, and moves to a remote farm. Here he comes in contact with the Black Rigante, and unknowingly he insults their leader gravely.

Naturally this leads to a close friendship with the Black Rigante, and even love peeks around the corner! The style of the Rigante series need not be introduced davvid, since all books have the same kind of main character, who starts out as a hateful youth but grows significantly when he matures.

Ravenheart truly is the best novel in the Rigante series, the conclusion one of the best and most touching I have ever read.

I read the first two Sword in the Storm and Midnight Falcon years before I picked up on the last two. I was so in love with the tales of Connavar and the Bastard Bane that I thought going forward years from that time would be silly in order to relate the last two books with the first two.

I stayed awake at night reading. David Gemmell is such a natural at pulling the reader into his stories. I would put the Rigante series as one of my favorite all time stories. Well done Sir Gemmell.


You will be missed. I just happened to read this series by David Gammel. Initially ii did not expect much when I started the book but once half way through I could not stop reading! As the davkd he put it nicely, this book is so touching that it would make you cry. The story is beautifully portrayed and the characters are so lively. Entire Rigante series is great in that, it does not have strange creatures, monsters, giants, orcs, elves or dwarves, nor does it have dragons, magic system, etc.

Despite this the story is wonderfully interesting and captivating. Your heart goes out ge,mell the heroes when they suffer or die. We need authors like David Gamell who would work magic in the words of the books without wizardy.
