    Unique and beautiful

    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 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.

    Surprise

    I really wasn't expecting much from this ,but boy was I surprised. I loved all the characters although Oliver broke my heart (insert tears here) . One reviewer said basiclly she was discusted when a 13yr old and 17yr old "canoodling" on the coach, I guess our idea of what canoodling is because they were not snuggled up on the coach, she sat on the couch and he sat in a chair by the couch hmmm. OK . I can't wait to read next one, even though it is about December , I hope Lilly is in it enough and either Oliver comes to his sences or she finds true love like she desearves

    Beautiful, amazing, lovely

    At first i wasnt happy, because the main character was lifeless. When she finally started to get excitifng the story become actually good. Im pleased to say it had great plot pots and the characters were truely rememberable. The only thing i hag trouble was the ending, but that wasnt enough for me to dislike the book. All in all it was a fantastic read.

    Not a page turner...

    I did not like this book and I do no recommend this book either. I felt like I was reading blah blah blah then some more crap. I have read a lot of young adult books and would categorize Raven as a young teen book. The main character is a 14 year old girl that ends up being a shifter. Maybe if the main character was older and there was more of a romance theme to it, the book would have been better. On my nook this book is over 400 pages and not worth the read. I struggled to get to the end.

    A great read

    The Raven is one of the best books I have ever read. It is a combination of romance, the supernatural and family love. I usually don't read about witches and stuff like that, but I couldn't put this book down!!

    Marvelous

    I love the whole story plot, very interesting twist for a supernatural story but I feel this story shouldn't have a sequel I like it the way it is.

    Interesting

    Although familiar characters with mystical beings, the book keeps you hooked because of its odd unpredictable plot. A good read at any age.

    Enjoyable twist

    There was a lot of intro to get into this story but after I got past all the necessary garbage poor Lilly had to go through I very much enjoyed this story. It has a great twist that isn¿t quite like the vampire/werewolf stories out on the market today but is enough like them to be very appealing to people that like that genre. I don¿t particularly care for the trite vampire novels but I do love a good story and this was just that. The twist was unique enough that I found it entertaining and I loved reading this book. The characters, especially Gabriel, were very personable and likeable right from the start. I knew we were all going to be good friends. I was happy for the ending and it didn¿t really hold any surprises for me. I think this story was more of a tale rather than a suspense although I do think suspense was what the author may have been after. To improve it, more detail would be great for the scenes where there are troubles and more extremes for good guy/bad guy ¿ like he/she¿s so the best in the world then he/she turns out to be a villain. Overall, I liked this book and recommend it as a must read. It was well written with an easy to follow storyline.

    Great Read!

    Suzy has the talent to drag you into a book and keep you there till the end. I Just loved this book and had to purchase the second book December Moon. I read both of these in one day. I loved the style of these stories as she pulls you into the story of Lilly and her friend December. This story has you thinking one way and twisting it completely the other way. I recommend this book to everyone young and old. You will be surprised at the end and It will make you run for the next.

    "RAVEN" (REVIEW)

    "RAVEN" BY SUZY TURNER

    Lately I have been stumbling across some of the most amazing YA writers, and Suzy Turner is by far one of the best. I love the fact that she has brought elements of all supernatural beings into her story and the plot was very well thought out where explanations for every aspect were articulated so there was no mistake. She writes with intelligence and precision and the result is something otherworldy and completely beautiful.

    This story is about Lilly Taylor, otherwise known as Lilly Tulugaq a 13, almost 14 year old girl that has grown up without the true love of a parent her entire life. For so long she has thought it was normal for parents to act the way hers did until they disappear... that's when she starts to find out that her world is anything but normal and her true family is something that fantasies and dreams are made of. When she goes to live with her grandfather Gabriel, she not only finds the acceptance and love she always craved, but she finds an entire world that is far more dangerous than she could have ever imagined.

    This YA novel is a definite must read and don't miss out on our contest for the sequel this month! But don't read "December Moon" until you've read "Raven" you can find both of these books on various sites where books are sold!

    Great Book

    This is not the type of book I normally read however when asked to write a review in return for a free ebook I thought why not.

    Having read this book I would gladly have paid for it as it was really really good.

    Lilly Turner the main character in the book has a sad lonely childhood until her parents disappear and she is sent to Canada to live with her grandfather. There she learns the secrets of her family.

    I will be getting this book for my grandaughter for Christmas I am sure she will enjoy it and will probably get her December Moon the second book in this series

    This is definately a great book to read.

    Compelling!

    Raven is a refreshingly different novel suitable for children, teens and adults alike. Suzy Turner's writing flows and the story pulls you in with its intrigue and mystery. The characters are compelling and the plot unfolds into an exciting adventure. I can't wait for book 2 and I'm really glad it's going to be about Lilly's friend, December Moon. She's a character I wished we'd seen more of in Raven, so it's brilliant we'll get to find out who she is. All in all this was a fantastic read!
