Call Of The Raven is a prequel book to Wilbur Smith's Ballantyne Series. It takes place during the decline of slavery and before the American Civil War. It detail the origins of Mungo St. John and shows the evolution of the man he becomes in the rest of the series.

Call Of The Raven is the second novel by Wilbur Smith that I have read. Smith writes what I like to call, Old School Adventure Novels. There is something immersive and wonderful about his writing that makes his stories come alive!! The characters are bold and adventuresome. His settings are always lush and exotic. This novel is no exception. I highly recommend this novel, however make sure that you have plenty of free time as you won't want to put this one down.
