: : Hi. This posting got lost in the recent transition from the former phrase forum.
: : Can anyone tell me what the meaning of the phrase "raven's
blood" or "raven's-blooded" (adj) is? I have run across it in the
writing of British authors whose work was published in the last
30 years. Thanks.

: Any chance of a quotation, some context or even just an author's name? I don't think that it's a stock phrase and therefore will only make sense when viewed in the light of whatever premise the various authors have set up in advance - but I may be wrong.
I wish I could quote directly and accurately, but I can't. From context as I remember it, though, it seemed to be relating to some archaic religious sensibilities of the British Isles. Paganism, Wicca?
