My Thoughts:

After the Wood Witch disappears with Darius, Raven joins forces with the King’s Guard in order to hunt her down. Their group now comprises 5 – Captain Jack Grant, two guardsmen, the reaper Monroe and Raven.

It is becoming more evident that Raven feels responsible for her father’s death and will hold herself responsible for Darius’ life. Though this mission started out as a redemption for one of the lives she had previously taken, she feels she will have to redeem his life if he dies.

Grant is also very much enamoured of Raven’s skills as a reaper, and I think as a woman as well. I believe there is potential here for some romance. But they are enemies, so… that might be awkward.

The pacing and intensity of this episode is excellent. It will keep you wanting to read until you get to the end and leave you wanting more. It’s a good thing you’ll only have to wait a couple of weeks for the next episode.

Do yourself a favour and grab a copy of this episode of Raven. You’ll be glad you did, especially if you enjoy steampunk. I rated this episode 5 stars out of 5.

Thank you to the author for providing a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.

About the Author:

In simple language, Pauline Creeden creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long. 

Pauline is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy. 

Her debut novel, Sanctuary, won 1st Place Christian YA Title 2013 Dante Rosetti Award and is now available as an audiobook. #1 Bestseller on Amazon in Christian Sci/Fi and Fantasy (October 2013)
