Lady Selene Ravenwood has come into her full power as a dreamwalker just as the war with the Dominia Empire begins. Working with the other Great Houses, Selene and Damien use their gifts to secure the borders and save those devastated by the war. But conflict, betrayal, and hatred begin to spread between the Great Houses, destroying their unity as the empire burns a path across their lands. At the same time, Damien Maris starts to lose his ability to raise the waters, leaving the lands vulnerable to the empire's attacks.

The only one who can unite the houses and restore her husband's power is Selene Ravenwood. But it will require that she open her heart to those who have hurt her and let go of her past, despite the one who hunts her and will do anything to stop her power.

Will Selene survive? Or is she destined to fall like the dreamwalkers before her?

This book made me break my own rule. I confess that a quarter of a way in I HAD to flip to the end to make sure it would have certain character(s) alive and well. Not only that, but even with knowing a tiny piece of the ending, I caught myself praying everyone would make it. … *Praying.* If that does not say how intense and engaging this story was, then neither what I have to share about the book will either. LOL! It's been a very long time since I have done either, and this book continued to surprise me in so many ways. I LOVED the story as a whole. It was everything I wanted in an epic trilogy. (Like were talking I had internal music playing with scenes and breaking out in goosebumps with scenes. #sogood) Fighting, overcoming, growing, and a few other spoiler things that I refuse to mention becaue one must read it to enjoy it. However, on a deeper level, Selene's words and Damien's struggle pierced me where I found myself having to put the book down and process how much I needed it. No matter how hard sometimes life might be, Jesus is ALWAYS with us. Even in the darkness, His Light shines and burns in our hearts. And letting go doesn’t mean forgetting.

Cry of the Raven is an amazing conclusion to the Ravenwood Saga! I came to the last page and like every good book wanted more pages telling me more. I have read all three of the books which started with Mark of the Raven where Salene starts to question the use of her Family's gift of Dreamwalking and the use that it is currently being put to, to Flight of the Raven where Salene is coming into her own where she is learning about not just what it means to be a Dreamwalker but one that is Dreamwalking for the Light not the Dark and then to the final in the series the Cry of the Raven where history is reviled that leaves her seeking within herself on how to continue to walk in the light and in healing given what is revealed and then how to secure that in the midst of war and invasions and betrayals. Amazing and riveting story line that has you turning the pages glued to the book, wondering what will happen next and relating to the very real life struggles of the characters as the answer questions of trust and choices. Amazing Author that I look forward to enjoying many more books from in the future. I highly recommend this whole series and books by this author!

Morgan L. Busse delivers a satisfying ending to the Ravenwood Saga in Cry of the Raven. After what seemed like a long wait since the last book in the series, readers can finally see what happens with Selene Ravenwood and her husband Damien Maris of two of the seven great houses. The couple must do what they can to help save their lands and peoples from the Dominian Empire. But with her family’s dark history, can Selene convince the coalition to trust that she is not like her family, that she will use her powers for the good of the coalition and not for harm? Selene desires to use her Light-given powers to help the people, not hurt them, but trust goes both ways as she discovers how the great houses had sacrificed her family in the past. Can Damien discover and overcome the inner barrier he faces when trying to use his powers to raise the waters to protect the people? Cry of the Raven provides plenty of action, suspense, and excitement as the author draws the story together to tie it up. It was an enjoyable read from a great author who creates believable worlds and interesting characters. It was suspenseful with unpredictable predicability—just enough but not too much! Readers will not be disappointed in the read, just that the journey has come to an end and that they must find a new series to read. Hopefully Busse will deliver an equally exciting new series in the near future! Note: I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for this honest review. The opinions expressed are my own.

Amazing ending to an amazing series! These books are so well written and thought out. I love that this is a fresh new story, I have never read something with this kind of concept before. Dreams are powerful, and Morgan expands on this with an interesting and unique twist. I highly recommend this series!

“Numb. So numb. The only thing Selene could feel was the dull thump of her heart beating as she sat beside the window in the guest chambers the next day.” - Opening line of “Cry of the Raven” by Morgan L. Busse Cry of the Raven by Morgan L. Busse is the conclusion to the three part Ravenwood Saga. Selene and Damien stand on the brink of war as they try to unite the Great Houses to fight the empire. With Selene’s mother and one Great House on their side, the empire looks formidable and begins to breakdown the border protections. Damien is struggling with his power, he is left weaker each time he uses it, Selene’s power, however, keeps getting stronger. For both, their power represents their ability to walk with the Light. As they work through their past trauma, their relationship with the Light strengthens. I really enjoyed the way Morgan wove Christian truths, particularly on forgiveness, throughout the series and she does a phenomenal job, The book concludes with the war against the empire and I don’t cope well with bloody battle scenes, particularly ones involving horses, so if you are like me, there are parts you’ll want to skim over but it is a small part of the book. I felt the war and it’s conclusion wasn’t as interesting as the dreamscape battle so whilst I’d hoped for a more complicated end, it is a triumphant end. I did thoroughly enjoy this series’ mystery and adventure. If you enjoy Christian speculative fiction, this is one to read. It’s a four out of five on the enJOYment scale!

What a great and satisfying ending to this series. I enjoyed all three books, but I think this is my favorite. The empire is trying to destroy all the great houses. As some of the houses come together to form an alliance, secrets and betrayals are revealed. Can the houses hold to this alliance and put the past behind them? Will they use their gifts for the light or turn away? We get to know Selene and Damien on a much deeper level, as well as several other people. In this fantasy. We are shown that Jesus is always there no matter what. We just need to call upon him. We need to be prepared and prayed up when the darkness tries to enter our hearts and minds. There was a lot of tense action in this book, as well as the struggle between dark and light. There is so much more i would like to say, but I want the reader to enjoy the book without me telling everything that happens. A well written, good story and highly recommended. I received a copy of this book from the Publisher via NetGalley for my honest opinion.
