House of the White Raven

Description - How would you describe House of the White Raven?

Three kingdoms, three monarchs, one myth. Uttara in the North, Navin in the West, and Dakshin in the East. The Raven Queen was born in Uttara hundreds of years ago, it is said her descendant will unite the kingdoms.
The ravens have always been white. No one can remember a time when they were black. Yet people still hold to the legend that says they when the Raven Queen arises the birds will turn black again. The girl who claims to be the Raven Queen is a fraud, and the true queen doesn't know. But it all might be in vain if the ambitious young Queen Sabiya, who rules vindictively from the Black Tower in Navin's capitol of Madhya, isn't stopped.
