Raven is a beautifully written and dark story, and completely different to anything YA I have read of late. I felt drawn into Lilly¿s world and the sadness that had plagued her all her life. I was compelled reading, especially when the story delved into witches and werewolves, vampires and more! There is also a really endearing romance in the book... but I won¿t spoil that for you! All I will say is when I click to the last page, leaving me with a cliff-hanger ending, I was practically shouting at my Kindle for more! Thankfully there is the next book ¿December Moon¿ already out for me to read!

Yuck!

This book had a great premise (and that is the only positive I can spit out for this one) but I only made it half-way through. I am sorry, but a 13 year old girl canoodling with a 17 year old boy is quite disgusting. In addition, it was poorly edited and there was NO sh...
This book had a great premise (and that is the only positive I can spit out for this one) but I only made it half-way through. I am sorry, but a 13 year old girl canoodling with a 17 year old boy is quite disgusting. In addition, it was poorly edited and there was NO showing only telling. I hate books that have pages upon pages of expository prose. So...on many levels YUCK! I'd give it a zero if I could.

    Not bad, great concept

    Sure first one is free, but Marketing as it is. Yes, it could been written better.
    It told you the who, the what, the when and the why how come. These qualities are sadly missing in most genres.

    This is a fun story. It is a little young and lacks charchter building. I enjoyed it but i wish i felt more vested in the charachters.

    It was.....nice. Enjoyable.

    At first i didn't like it and it seemed boring. After i forced my self to read it a little more around the 2nd or 3rd chapter it got very interesting and made me keep reading. There were prts in the reading that were rather confusing and didn't make sense but I enjoyed it. I would recommend reading it only if you have paitience for the first chaptera or so and than you won't be able to put it down:)
