'City of Ravens launches a new series of novels featuring life in the cities of the Forgotten Realms setting.

Ravens Bluff, the site of City of Ravens, is a city created by fans and members of the RPGA (Roleplaying Gamers Association) to use in their club's Forgotten Realms roleplaying games. Many of the characters and locals in Ravens Bluff were created by over 35,000 members of the RPGA. This is the first novel to take place in and detail the city of Ravens Bluff.

For the first time, Jack Ravenwild's designs exceed his talents. His ambitions plunge him into the middle of a plot to destroy the city, a noble quest to find a lost hoard, and a conspiracy to seize the reins of power through the nobility's Game of Masks.
Worse yet, Jack must choose between a life of freedom and saving the city he doesn't even know he loves'

It was a fantastic book with twists and turns. Jack Ravenwild i thought was an intrigueing character with a few fiendish ideas and desires.

The Masks competition sor of brought down the story it was quite boring. but when it came to dicovering the dangers in the city and his unknown enemy trying to take control of his beloved city there was a change in hs character that brightened up the story. He had become a bit noble in his theverish extent.

It was a fantastic book ,but a forgetable one.
