Sara should be happy. She has what every girl wants: a man who loves her, a beautiful home, and wealth beyond imagining. She rescued her brother from the Peacekeepers, destroyed the Iron Queen, and doesn't have to go to her boring job any more. And yet Sara still doesn't know if her father is alive or dead. Her mother hides in the garden, brooding about her missing husband. Her sister, the Inheritor of Metal, is scared of her own shadow, and her brother spends his days fighting and gambling. To add to Sara's misery, the new queen (gold, of course) is more than a bit crazy, she misses her life in the Mundane world, and, worst of all, Micah wants to have children. A lot of them. As Sara wavers between happiness and homesickness, a conspiracy emerges against the Raven clan, implicating them in a plot to dethrone the Gold Queen. How can Sara prove her family's innocence, and become the consort Micah needs her to be, without losing herself in the process?

Copper Ravens, (Copper Legacy 2) , Jennifer Allis Provost Review from jeannie zelos book reviews I really enjoyed the first book, so was pleased to get the chance to review this. Sara is building a new life with Micah, and she and her family are sheltering with him at his fabulous home in the Otherworld from the Mundane world, where they are regarded as dangerous criminals and warrants out for their arrests. Her father is still missing, her sister still hiding from her role as Inheritor of Metal, her brother Max courting danger constantly, her mum causing mayhem in her usual imperious way...add in Micah talking about having a family all the while – it's something very important in the Otherworld – and until she does she isn't regarded as Lady Silverstrand, but simply Micah's consort, and she's a bit lost. She feels she doesn't really have a role here and misses her old life. Once again Sara nd her family get into some dangerous waters, and its difficult for her to know who to trust. She's bored too without any real role to play in this world. Micah is busy with his duties as Lord Silverstrand and the usual politics which seem as convoluted as in the Mundane world, and she's left to her own devices much of the time. Then the danger starts to come closer, mysterious gifts arrive, and Sara needs to prove she isn't part of a plot to overthrow the Gold Queen. She's outspoken though, and has already upset some fairly important people so she needs to tread carefully. She was a big part of the rescue of the Gold Queen but it seems that doesn't matter to those who seek to prove her treacherous. The Queen is still mentally suffering from her horrific treatment while in captivity, and very erratic in her behaviour. She seems to favour Sara at times, but her instability means she could change her mind at any moment. It's a fascinating story, taking the reader on a real adventure into a world that's well contructed, and full of fun as well as danger. I want a team of Silverkin to work in my house – what a treat they are and they make me smile just imagining them scurrying around busily all day! I feel we've a lot more to learn about Sara, she seems to have some unknown powers that come out at times, that no-one knows why or how she has them. I love the way the metals – gold, silver and copper, are used in body art and clothing. That sounds really decorative. I'm looking forward to reading more, although this book ties up the story well its got a shocking revelation right at the end that sets up book three. Stars: Four – a great read, easy to follow, and a fun and interesting world. ARC supplied by author
