Overview

The Prince of Ravens has vanished.

Word spreads quickly from the Fortress of the Empress, through the dark streets of Lucien, and to the far corners of the Empire of Ages. The Children are summoned to the Fortress, and the people talk in muffled whispers, if they dare to talk at all, of secret plots and ancient prophecies. Some say the Prince was murdered, others that he was kidnapped; but underneath it all runs a darker word, one full of terrifying possibility:

Exile.

Rumor begets rumor, and soon the whisper of truth is lost in the swirling winds of growing fear. For the Prince of Ravens is the prophesied Lord of Death, and on his shoulders rests the fate of the Empire.

Page turning action, provoking and intriguing characters, this book was a thrill from start to end! I would absolutely share this with readers that love fantasy novels in ancient/medieval worlds. The romance aspect was not overdone, as it generally is with YA fantasy novels, in fact it wasn't even a subplot. Instead the story was simply supplemented by romantic undertones. I felt that this, along with realistic dialouge, strengthened my connection to the characters, as they felt more genuine. I really loved the Prince, he was such a unique story character because of the way he struggled to develop thoughts and opinions seperate from the family that betrayed him. You see he never really had an identity other than the one given to him, only to have it stripped away without an explaination. So as he comes to term with his situation, his inner voice slowly becomes more and more intriguing. I love the broody, tortured types! This edition needs a little proof reading though - in one instance the Prince's narration included a central character's name before she had given it to him, which was a tiny bit off-putting. Especially since as a reader I was dying to know what her name was for a third of the book along with the Prince! So the reveal was ruined by this tiny flaw. Not essential to the plot, but annoying.

Good character development, interesting backstories, realistic dialog.... all against the backdrop of a fantasy world that is fully conceived and believable. (Could stand a bit of proof reading, though.) Looking forward to the next one!

Creative, well written, and enrapturing. A tale definitely worthy of the pages it was written on.

Really enjoyed this first book in the series. I normally do not like fantasy but this read hooked me right from the start. There are a few grammatical errors but they do not distract from the story line. Highly entertaining, exciting read!

This is an entertaining tale. It's basically the disinherited heir in a fantasy setting with a couple of unique twists. The main character is well written and intriguing. The writing is generally good although it wanders and gets repetitive from time to time, but I enjoyed reading it and plan to get the next one in the series.

The book was really good for a fantasy. It includes a glossary of some of the terms. The book dragged some, expecially in the middle, but picked up strategically so much in the end, that I couldnt put it down

Hal Emerson’s book The Prince of Ravens is an exciting new series in Young Adult fantasy and adventure. It deals with the story of a young man who has lost his name, been betrayed by his family, and is rejected by the empire that brought him up. The Prince is thrown in the world of the Exiles, the very people he was taught to hate and fear, and throughout the book must learn to make decisions and choices for himself and out of the shadow of his Mother, the goddess/empress of the kingdom of Lucia. Everything about this book is intriguing and I was immediately drawn in to the lives of the characters, and their story.
