Read full description of the books Sisters of the Raven:Barbara Hambly creates interesting worlds and ideas. In this book she has a society where magic has always existed--but only men have the power.
Now, she presents a tale of what effect it would have on any society when such a basic, familiar ability---magic--suddenly changes. As men lose magical power, women===a few women---are starting to show a somewhat different type of magic.
The conflicts in the story are well done. The rage of the men in losing their powers; the uncertainty of the women; the panic of the ordinary citizen---as drought gets worse and worse for the wizards can no long summon the rains.....
The novel is character driven---not a lot of battles or huge action scenes. But the interplay between characters made it an enjoyable read. The three main characters are Raeshaldis, the only female mage student; the king, Oryn and his lover, the Summer Concubine. I especially liked Oryn.
This is the first book of a series (so far only two) but the story stands alone. A well written fantasy which Barbara Hambly's good characterization and world-building.

Ranging from fantasy to historical fiction, Barbara Hambly has a masterful way of spinning a story. Her twisty plots involve memorable characters, lavish descriptions, scads of novel words, and interesting devices. Her work spans the Star Wars universe, antebellum New Orleans, and various fantasy worlds, sometimes linked with our own.
"I always wanted to be a writer but everyone kept telling me it was impossible to break into the field or make money. I've proven them wrong on both counts."
