Raven by Dean Whitlock

It has been four years since Raven fled Baron Cutter's estate – four years since her mother, Roxaine, failed to show at their rendezvous. They were bond servants then, trapped in a system that never paid enough wage to cover the ever-growing bond fee. Now Raven is an outlaw and a rising mage – she can change into a bird at will. But at fifteen, Raven is haunted by the past: Did her mother abandon her, or did Raven desert Roxaine in her hour of need? Driven by a desire to know what happened that night, Raven seeks out the mother she left behind. What she discovers is beyond her imagining, and Raven is left with a choice: escape a second time or help the mother whose will is as strong as her own.

With unexpected help from Fireboy's little brother – the aptly nicknamed Hero – Raven must face down the minions of two Barons, cross over highlands warded by magical traps, and learn to control her own erratic talent and temper on an unwanted heroine's quest. Vivid details and amusing characters are skillfully woven into this fast-paced novel about a girl who must look beyond magic – and herself – to save what is most important.
