    Whoa! I'm not quite sure how to write a review for this one! A bit of a departure from my usual reading material because, though I love fantasy, I'm rather picky about which books I choose. A speculative fiction story either grabs me or it doesn't and I'm not sure I can even tell you w...

    Solid 3 stars. Lady Selene is a Dreamwalker and heir to House Ravenwood, one of the 7 Great Houses that were bestowed with magic in order to protect their people from the lurking threat of the Empire. The raw potential contained in that single sentence summary is overwhelming. ...

    3.5 stars I love a good book cover and when the cover matches the story perfectly, I am one satisfied reader. Mark of the Raven starts out really creepy, Selene is in a dark church next to her mom and sister with their people going through a ritual and that kind of sets the tone of ...

    I. Am. Impressed. The Mark of The Raven is hands down one of the most solid novels I?ve ever read. I?m not much a fan of fantasy, but I was hooked from page one. Descriptive writing has you immersed in the world of powerful Houses, intrigue and the beginning of the discovery of t...

    I was able to read this one during an ice storm, and what a fantastic read it was! I was really impressed by this and I know it?ll be something I will recommend to lots of readers of all ages. The worldbuilding was excellent, but the plotline surprised me (hard to do for a mystery au...

    3.5/4 stars Wow! What a compelling ending! I have to admit that I thought the beginning was rather slow and just couldn?t seem to get hooked. *hides* I?m not sure if it?s because I was fairly sick when I started or not, but I also found some repetitive places that I began ...

    Aaah, that was so cool! Now where?s the next book? I love a good epic fantasy and this one was awesome! The world was so rich and the characters were fantastic. The plot was a slow-burn kind of one, full of mystery and politics but enough spice of danger and adventure to keep you ...

    Some books are amazing, others spellbinding and just a rare few are perfect. Mark of the Raven is all those things and more. In a fast paced plot, Busse tells a story of gifted nobles houses, treacherous plots, family secrets and murders at midnight. I love dual POVs and Se...

    This book is amazing! Of course, I knew it would be since I've adored every single novel this author has ever written! This one started off slow. But the sort of slow where the plot and worldbuilding are unfolding like a flower, one petal at a time. Just at the moment when I wasn't...

    I wish the second book was out. I finished it before I went to bed, and let's just say my mind was all abuzz when I was trying to fall asleep. I had a lot of weird dreams which I'm pretty sure was all the book's fault. ;) A few themes really stood out to me. Selene often asked why an...

    While some aspects of the writing and storytelling don't quite meet my picky standards, there are a couple things this story does amazingly well and that I as a writer can learn from. Things I really appreciated: Damien is such a lovely character. His compassion is so inspiring,...

    As I mentioned in my updates: This felt very, very much like Strange the Dreamer! However, I felt that Strange was better executed. As a result of that, and the fact that I had a few quibbles and inconveniences, I'm docking a star from this one. However! the plot was twisty and tur...

    I wish this book had been out when I was twelve because I was going through my fantasy loving stage back then and this book would have been a favorite along with The Warrior of the Son series by Samuel Schiller. This book is so raw, even though it's fantasy it doesn't hold back from...

    I am struggling for words right now. I'm serious. This book was F I R E. In all of its burning brilliance. Content: -Language: n/a -Romance: a male and female seemed to be 'drawn' to each other and couldn't stop thinking about each other, but this was not in a romantic way. You'l...
