From the moment I started reading Raven’s Peak, I couldn’t put it down. Raven’s Peak is a quiet little mountain town hiding a big problem – the townsfolk are starting to act crazy. Abigail Dressler is called upon to discover the root of the evil affecting people, and as such, discovers a demonic threat of epic proportions. Abigail rescues Haatim Arison, a young man who has a family legacy in the supernatural, something he knew little about until now. Now he sees demons, scary supernatural beings, and must come to terms with his own legacy. In order to survive, Abigail will need to protect Haatim and learn to trust him – easier said than done. I really liked Haatim. At the start of the book, he’s obviously lost, having dropped out of college and suffering personal loss. But as the story progresses, the reader sees him grow and change, and likewise, so does Abigail. The plot is engaging, and the writing is very fast-paced; I almost flew through the pages racing to the end. This was definitely an on-the-edge-of-your-seat pageturner and paranormal thriller. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Raven' Peak is a dazzling race through dimension and demonic confrontation. Though it is set in a familiar world with familiar types of people, a wild ride commences right from the start. There are many characters who morph and change in primordial nature so that nothing is quite what it seems. You know right at the outset that there are going to be many vertiginous plot twists. We are introduced to Arthur aka. "The Reverend" who is released from imprisonment and charged with pursuing and defeating his demon-possessed daughter Abigail. As if that weren't enough, as soon as he accomplishes his assignment the roles are reversed; daughter becoming aligned with the forces of light, and father becoming a captive of the forces of darkness. Abigail finds an ally in the mild-mannered protagonist Haatim and off we go. I will not spoil all the strange and wonderful confrontations and transformations for you. Suffice to say there is plenty of action and nothing stays too static. "Raven's Peak" is a great platform from which the very imaginative can lift their imagination. It has the characteristics of many classic works of "Swords and Sorcery" and old-school science fiction and maintains "class" quality.

This is a thrilling book that is filled with suspense and mystery. Demons, Hunters, and an innocent bystander that pulls you in to the plot. It is filled with danger and evil. Can good triumph over evil? Can Abigale send the demons back to hell? Will she be rewarded or punished? This is a great book and I look forward to reading the next one in this series.

This book starts with a bang – you’re sucked into the action from the get-go. There’s a complex back history that’s hinted at, but is only revealed little by little as the story is told. I’m intrigued by the Council – who are they, how were they formed? The story revolves around Abigail and Haatim – while Haatim’s motives are a little ill-defined, I found him to be a relatable character as an every-day kind of guy thrust into a very surreal situation. Abigail’s history is not fully explained, which is frustrating for the reader as you want to sympathize with her. As a result, I didn’t care for her as a character as much as I probably should. My only other gripe is some of the word usage in the book is incorrect. This isn’t a deal-breaker, as it’s easy to infer what the author really meant. All in all, the book was pretty good – Lots of action, some really good atmosphere and a very intriguing back-story. I look forward to the next book in the series.

Raven's Peak (World on Fire, #1) by Lincoln Cole is a creepy, disturbing, and wonderfully good read! It keeps you turning the page when you don't want to. I was afraid to read what might be next but couldn't help myself. This book is full of suspense and surprises. Loved it! Action, fantasy, demons, terror, and so much more. The characters are well developed and rich with their own uniqueness. I was terrified of the Reverend and I felt like I was there, with the guards, oh, my ticker was going for sure then... He was a very unique character! So much happens in this book, I am not going to give a book report here, you have to read it! I don't want to spoil a thing! I promise, it is well worth your time! This book was given to me and boy am I mad at myself for waiting so long to read it. Great job!

Intense! I was shocked after reading the prologue; it was so good! I really enjoyed the fact that the two main characters are people of color. It's tiresome to read the same type of main characters in novels over and over again. Diverse characters are crucial to a well-balanced story. The plot was very interesting. I like the paranormal angle of Raven's Peak, the demon hunting, and fighting. Abigail is tough! And in some weird way, Haatim makes an awesome partner for her. The back story of how Haatim fit into the story is a total surprise. The demons in this book are so tricky and manipulative - as they should be. I read Raven's Peak in one sitting. It has an excellent blend of the supernatural, family drama, and loyalty. Add this one to your summer reading list!

We start this story with Reverend Arthur Vangeest. He has been locked away for five years feeling horrible about the loss of Abigail. But then he learns that Abigail is alive and not possessed by a demon. Then we skip to Abigail. She is a demon slayer that works for the organization called the Council. She is wracked with guilt over the death of Arthur and what happened when she was possessed. But she learns that Arthur is alive, banished to Hell, and plans to rescue him even though she has been warned to not pursue Arthur. In the meantime, Abigail is sent to protect Haatim, the son of a Council member. Together they are to travel to Raven’s Peak to figure out what is making the people act strange. This is going to be a crash course in heritage for Haatim and in how to fight demons. But what happens with it looks like Abigail just walked both Haatim and her into a trap. I loved this story. This is not your normal demon slayer story, there is action, amazing fight scenes, and a kick butt story. It is fast paced and I had a hard time putting the book down, I just had to find out what was going to happen next. I loved Abigail, she keeps beating herself up over Arthur and the possession and just won’t let herself move on. Haatim is this blogger that gets a crash course in fighting demons and picks it up quickly. If you are looking for a kick butt demon slayer story make sure to check out Raven’s Peak. I can’t wait for book 2. I received Raven’s Peak for free from Sage’s Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review.

Different heroes than you would normally find in a novel like this! I loved the action scenes especially and thought the chase scenes were very well written.

Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite Wow! Just, wow! That’s exactly what I thought when I finished reading Raven’s Peak, the first book in the planned World on Fire Series by author Lincoln Cole. This story line is one that will grab readers from the very first pages and will keep them obsessively reading all the way through until the very last. Following the characters of Abigail Dressler and Haatim Arison, two people thrown together in a fight to save their town from a threat they could never have imagined, this story is full of action, adventure and thrills. It had me actually holding my breath in places, nervous to find out what happened next, but determined to do so! Haatim and Abigail come from their own difficult and damaging backgrounds, one dealing with profound grief and the other with a history full of danger and despair, but they must learn to trust and depend on each other if they have even a chance of saving those who live in Raven’s Peak. Will they do it? You’ll have to read the book to find out! I loved Raven’s Peak. Loved. It. How’s that for a review? Well, it’s truly how I felt about this excellent new book by Lincoln Cole. The author has done a fantastic job in creating characters that readers will connect with, relate to and truly come to care about, thinking of them long after the book is finished. If that isn’t a hallmark of a great author, I’m not sure what is. This book is full of action, adventure, twists and turns, supernatural thrills, and a fascinating relationship between the primary characters, Abigail and Haatim; in other words, there’s something for everyone in it. I highly recommend this book, and I will be very much looking forward to reading the next volume in the World on Fire series by Lincoln Cole as soon as it is available!

Reviewed by Chris Fischer for Readers' Favorite In a highly intriguing first work to the new World on Fire series by author Lincoln Cole, Raven’s Peak kept me turning the pages from the very beginning. The story hinges on the lives of two main characters, Abigail Dressler and Haatim Arison, individuals that come from quite different backgrounds but end up having to come together in order to, essentially, save the town of Raven’s Peak. Haatim is a young man obviously going through a deep depression. His sister has recently passed away, he’s left college, and he has no idea what to do with his life. Abigail finds herself with a completely different set of problems that involve possession by a demon, and being privy to a secret threat that is causing the people of Raven’s Peak to act as if they are insane. When Abigail happens upon Haatim and realizes that he possesses a supernatural gift passed along his family lines, one he has never been aware of, they realize that they are the only chance Raven’s Peak has for survival. I so enjoyed Raven’s Peak. The story line is fast paced, exciting, and a true page turner. The scene setting ability of author Lincoln Cole, even with supernatural elements, is simply second to none. Once I started this book, I was honestly unable to put it down until I had read every bit of it, that’s how much it sucked me in. In fact, the best piece of advice I have for readers, besides being sure to get this book as soon as possible, is to set aside enough time to read it from cover to cover once you start! I can confidently give this book my highest recommendation, and will certainly keep my eyes peeled for the second book in this incredibly promising series. Author Lincoln Cole, I hope you write fast!

Reviewed by Joel R. Dennstedt for Readers' Favorite Raven’s Peak by Lincoln Cole starts off with a bang and rarely lightens up its drama. The explosive prologue delivers a decidedly necessary orientating mix of intrigue, violence, and “demoness” to introduce the reader properly to the definitively alternate world that he is entering, as well as to encounter two most pivotal characters, one of whom – the self-flagellating Reverend - yet remains only as a motivating background to the remainder of the story. The young woman, Abigail, whom he delivers from possession, remains central. This meaty introduction is followed by another in Chapter One; still intriguing, but much less gritty … for now. Haatim, a bright but emotionally battered young man, is hired by a stranger to investigate a stalker. Sounds conventional enough, except the demons and Abigail are much closer than you think. Lincoln Cole does a masterful job in Raven’s Peak of developing his demonic version of the world. His more dire explanations for the evil embedded there are consistent and convincing, and one feels comfortable – if that can even be an appropriate feeling here – with suspending disbelief in order to engage more fully. But the author does more than just create a personal demonic version of events; he creates characters whom we care about and root for – one, a bit more heroic than the other. Mr. Cole also has a talent for realistic dialogue and the mundane moments of normal human interactions, some much needed sardonic humor, and many well-thought-out plot developments to keep the reader active in his reading. This book is obviously the first in a proposed series, and Cole has done a proper job of preparing a most intriguing framework for future visits to this literally insane world.
