RAVES FOR RAVEN DOCK!! I'm so glad Raven Dock is just the first of a whole series. The only downside will be having to wait for the next volume. Sara Caldwell's handling of intrigue, mystery and suspense is nothing short of masterful. Raven Dock is page turner and will make you stay up too late at night trying to find out what happens next. The main character, Harper, a teenage misfit, is very real, supremely engaging, and outsiders with special powers have been a winning combination from The Ugly Duckling to Superman to Harry Potter. Raven Dock is no exception. Teens and tweens will surely find a hero in Harper Duncan but (as with Harry Potter) you don't have to be in any particular age group to identify. Harper had my empathy from page one. I wanted to go with her on her amazing, often scary, ultimately rewarding journey and was so glad I did. Can't wait for Book Two!

I received a free copy of RAVEN DOCK (Book 1 of the Dark Coven Series) by Sara Caldwell in exchange for an honest review. Harper Duncan is tired of moving all the time. When she finds out her family is moving again, she acts out, which results in a blowout fight with her mother. Harper’s family is then killed in a hit-and-run accident, so she’s alone, feeling guilty, and grief-stricken. Harper discovers she has an aunt and goes to visit her; this is when things get a little strange. Her aunt tells her she is her birth mother and that they are hereditary witches. The coven seems to be holding a prisoner and the witches act pretty mysterious. I can’t tell you much more about the book because one more sentence would reveal the end. This appears to be the first in the series; however, the war between the covens was not really explored; there was also no real explanation about what significance ten and twenty had. Some of Harper’s actions or lack thereof can be justified by the coven keeping her stoned out of her mind, but how she just goes along with things at some points should have registered as irregular even if drugged. No sex in this book, but the underage characters engage in frequent drinking and drug use. If you’re interested in a quick, dark read, then this is the book for you. #RavenDock #NetGalley
