       Additional Information  
      Barbara Hambly, author of the acclaimed Benjamin January mystery series, is also one of fantasy's best authors, as her complex, powerful novel Sisters of the Raven demonstrates.

    In a world where only men possess magic, the mages are losing their power--and a few women are discovering that they can cast spells. This adds turmoil to an already dire situation. Drought is ravaging the Yellow City. Its king is a soft, untested dandy with many enemies. A radical new prophet is winning an army of converts with his dangerous preachings. And the women magic-makers, struggling to form an alliance and combat the drought, are being killed in the night by an unknown man who, impossibly, possesses a new, terrifying, and immensely powerful magic.
