Raven's Shadow Kindle Edition
Seraph is a Raven mage, and among the last of the Travelers who ensure that the city of Colossae is safe from evil. Unwelcome by those who fear magic, the wizard clans have been decimated by the very people they’ve sworn to protect. But Seraph is spared a similar fate by the ex-soldier Tier—and together they build a life where she is no longer burdened by her people’s responsibility.
But now Tier is missing—or dead—and Seraph’s reprieve from her duty is over. Using her magic to discover her husband’s fate, Seraph realizes the prison that holds the evil entity known as Stalker is weakening—and only Seraph can fulfill her ancestors’ oath...

So how did I mist the Raven’s duology? I don’t know, but I had to use our regional public library LinkPlus to get them.
They are only superficially 2 books, should be considered one, definitely read together (& in order!). So satisfying!
I’ve now purchased them to n Kindle format because I m Definitely keeping these around for rereading in a couple of years!
I started Raven's Shadow hopeful. It took some adjusting to the type of story, the setting, the world she wove. It was so worth it. About 1/3 of the way through the story skipped forward 20 years. I wasn't quite ready for that and was leary. But be patient, she has her reasons. For everything that got left out in those 20 years, Briggs revisits the events when it has to do with the next event's in the book, including Seraph's and Tier's affection for one another. All in due time. Normally I'm not a fan of switching point of views too many times. This book however, has POV's for everyone that you love in just the right amount.
So, everything you like about Briggs in her two most famous series is also on display in these earlier books as well. She can draw you into her worlds and leave you starting the next book well after your bedtime.
The characters are interesting and you grow to understand them and like them (OK there are a few you get to not like much as well!)as the book progresses. There is some romance, life and death threats, battles, magic and adventures all in one book.
Yes, it is a series - at least 2 books that I know of anyway - however the first book is one complete story in itself. She doesn't leave you totally hanging in the middle of some crisis or battle. There is an end. Yep, you know something else is coming along in the next book, but it is not done in a way that is incredibly frustrating like so many other stories are that end the book in the middle of the story! My feeling is I read for enjoyment and I don't want to feel frustrated when I get to the 'end' because of some marketing ploy. So I was VERY happy with this book, which you can set down when you are done and feel satisfied. Of course it also leaves you feeling curious about what will happen to them next as well! That is why I am ordering the next book.

I was not so happy, the condition it was in was abysmal.
Second hand maybe, but this was not a very good copy.
Brown edged pages, ex library book, well read many times.
This was the worst copy of the whole list of books I bought.
I cannot remember the description but it was at least supposed to be "Good Condition".
Raven's Shadow is about magic. For many years the city of Colossae was a haven of magical study. As generations of wizards pushed the limits of their abilities, an evil entity was unleashed that could only be contained by the sacrifice of their city. From the ashes of Colossae, the Travelers emerged - roaming the world to ensure that the Stalker would remain imprisoned forever. Seraph is a Raven mage and among the last of the Travelers. Unwelcome among those who fear magic, the wizard clans have been decimated by the very people they've sworn to protect. But Seraph is spared a similar fate by the ex-soldier Tier - and together they build a life where she is no longer burdened by her people's responsibility. But now Tier is missing - or dead - and Seraph's reprieve from her duty is over. Using her magic to discover her husband's fate, Seraph realizes that the Stalker's prison is weakening - and only Seraph can fulfill her ancestors' oath to protect humanity from destruction.
