The Story

Neryn thought she had lost everything and could trust no one, not even her mysterious companion, Flint.

But when she finds refuge at the rebel base of Shadowfell and discovers her canny gift as a Caller, she feels the first stirrings of hope.

Now she faces a perilous journey with the rebel Tali and the Good Folk, who shadow her steps. She must find the three Guardians who can teach her how to use her unwieldy gift – one that it is rumoured could amass a powerful army.

Can Neryn master her magical power to save Alban from King Keldec's stranglehold?

Or will she be too late?

The Review

A big thanks to Pan Macmillan Australia for sending me a review copy of this book!

I will admit that I haven't read the first book of the series, Shadowfell, and to be honest with you I don't plan to anytime soon. I mean, perhaps later this year or the next year after I will get a chance to read it, but for now I just went ahead and read what I could with the sequel which I don't often do because I like knowing what's going on in a story. But in the long-run, I guess I read it anyway in respect for the publisher whom was kind enough to send me a surprise copy of the book and it actually looked pretty good too. But again, I just didn't have enough time to find a copy of the first book, so I just went with my instincts with this title and hoped I would like this sequel.

RAVEN FLIGHT was a great book. While it would've helped a lot to have read the first book (which is obvious to everyone since it might seem silly to read the sequel first haha) but I did eventually get the gist of what was going on in the storyline and who was who in the story as well. Again, I may have been confused at times but I did eventually get the main point of the story which is something I guess. Everything, on a whole at least, was very interesting and I quite enjoyed the characters too which was surprising as well, so I'm already intrigued by this series . . . so who knows I might pick up the first book sooner than I want to. Anyway, I enjoyed this book and that's awesome for me.

Overall, RAVEN FLIGHT does encourage me to pick up the first book of the series and I will get to it eventually, but for now this was a pleasant sequel and offers a nice little series and I'm sure will get interesting by the third book that is coming out soon.

The Rating
3/5 stars


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed this! Even if you picked it up out of order. ;) I definitely plan to start this series when I can - or at least, something by Juliet Marillier - and hope it will work for me too. Lovely review, Erin. :)

    1. I'm glad I did too. I'll eventually grab the first book sometime soon.
