Editorial Reviews


In Rayna of Nightwind, R.A. Baker has created a fascinating world with a rich history and a fascinating cast. -Apex Reviews

Not only is the end result entirely satisfying and absorbing, it will have you forgetting everything you've just read. If ever an author wanted a way to ensure that readers go on to buy the sequel, this is how to do it. -Total Sci-Fi Online.com

When Rayna Powell seeks to avoid running into a woman standing in the middle of the road on a rainy night, the ensuing crash hurtles her into another world, where she crosses a barren, lightning-filled plain to emerge in a land that hails her as a god returned. Rayna reluctantly gets drawn into an ancient conflict between the folk of West Taren and their eastern kin. Confronting inhuman magicians known as Red Robes and their ruthless king, Rayna and her newfound allies uncover a startling secret about the world's origin... -Library Journal
