'Rhidauna', the first book of the great fantasy series 'The Shadow of the Revenaunt'. 

The night before his Coming-of-Age, Ghyll and his two friends escape their castle on a clandestine hunt that will forever change their lives.

The hunt proves a disaster, and with one of them badly wounded, they return just in time to see their island castle destroyed by macabre warriors from a dragon boat, and by flocks of fire-breathing carrion birds. Ghyll's eighteenth birthday turns into a nightmare as they flee into the night.

Now begins an epic journey to find out who is trying to kill them... and most importantly, why?

Fortunately, they can count on colorful new friends to assist, including a sometimes overly enthusiastic firemage, an inexperienced paladin and a young beastmistress who is a ferocious mountain lioness.

It soon becomes apparent that not one but several dark mages are after them. Are they really followers of a terrible, long-forgotten organization?

And whose cold hand reaches across the boundaries of space and time to crush weakened Rhidauna?
