Well too say the least, this was a very strange story, It was kind of like being in a nightmare and a dream and you just couldn't wake up, It was kind of in between, I can't say that I understood it and I'm still a little confused,
The introduction to Justin Camp's Novel "A Raven's Quest" provides an apt understanding of the inspirations that fill the story. The influence of Stephen King's Dark Tower series is obvious with the novel's western themes, but at the same time, this tale is all its own. The author also mentions his Grandfather in the introduction, who was another profound influence on this work. A man appears in the Wilderness with little more than a name and a number and from this mysterious beginning, the tale of Raven unfolds. The novel is easy to read and moves quickly. Sometimes a bit too quickly as some of the suspense that's built up is hurriedly resolved. The usual problems with an independent work are present here as well. Spelling and grammar mistakes that could be caught by a strong editor are present in the novel, and, at times, can be distracting. The moments that I enjoyed the most were the ones that were involved Raven's recollections of his Grandfather. Endearing, Raven's memories are sympathetic to every childhood memory of a lost loved one and really bring the reader close to the story. The enigmatic way in which Raven's past becomes reconciled with his destiny is playful and brings about an interesting conclusion. At times enigmatic, A Raven's Quest never becomes heady, and, in spite of the shifting between memories, still remains a light read.
