Vincent is an apprentice librarian who stumbles upon a secret powerful enough to destroy his master. With the foolish arrogance of youth, he attempts blackmail but the attempt fails and Vincent finds himself on the run and in possession of an intricately carved silver raven's head.
Any attempt to sell the head fails.... until Vincent tries to palm it off on the intimidating Lord Sylvain - unbeknown to Vincent, a powerful Alchemist with an all-consuming quest. Once more Vincent's life is in danger because Sylvain and his neighbours, the menacing White Canons, consider him a predestined sacrifice in their shocking experiment.
Chilling and with compelling hints of the supernatural, The Raven's Head is a triumph for Karen Maitland, Queen of the Dark Ages.

Darkly medieval - not for the faint hearted!
Would you try another book written by Karen Maitland or narrated by Jonathan Keeble?
Yes. Karen Mailtland's book are always fascinating and the social history very well observed. Jonathan Keeble's narration was excellent.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
A little less cruel. Many of the scenes were very upsetting and hard to listen to. It spoiled an otherwise good tale. Caution advised.
Any additional comments?
Caution advised. Scenes of great suffering involving children. It took me out of y comfort zone.

Good but not great
Enjoyable enough tosh but rather obvious twists in the plot made this less enjoyable than it might have been. However the author is really good at writing within a historical context.
