5 Stars


Flight of the Raven is the eagerly-awaited sequel to Mark of the Raven, and an intense book that touches on aspects of guilt, good vs. evil, and salvation. I was intrigued with Amara’s POV, which the author did wonderfully in crafting her character – Amara’s struggles, desires, and ultimate (spoiler) death. But perhaps what I enjoyed most about this book is it’s unwavering salvation message: no matter who you are, no matter where you’ve come from, and no matter what you’ve done, you can always find the Light.

*I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Hmm.. I’m curious what was your favourite part of the story arc between Amara and Selene? You mentioned this was a 5* read of yours and I was curious to know what your thoughts were about the two central characters within the first two installments?

    Not to put in any spoilers, but perhaps one of my favorite parts was the final conversation between the two sisters. As for Selene and Damien, I love how Selene’s struggle and Damien’s faith are interwoven. Thanks for stopping by!
