    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...

    5 Stars! I'm not a big fantasy reader, but the description of this one sounded so intriguing that I just had to try it! I loved this book, it was such a great read! I immediately liked the main character, Selene, and immensely enjoyed this first part of her journey from the darkness...

    After just finishing this incredible book, here are the reasons why you must read Mark of the Raven: 1. Assassins Who doesn't like a good assassins story? Darkly clad individuals quietly moving through the shadows to do stabby things. YES! Well get this. Selene has inhe...

    4.5 stars "There were no choices . . . . . . . her future was dark and bleak." As heir apparent to the House of Ravenwood, Selene has just been gifted; she's now a dreamwalker, and according to her mother, a surprisingly powerful one. Curious about an ability that the other six ...

    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 ...

    Loved it as much as I hoped I would! The plot was great, the characters compelling, and the worldbuilding pretty easy to follow. I can't wait for the next book! Okay, so don't read the next bit if you haven't read the book. (view spoiler)[ Okay, so I loved Selene and Damien, but ...

    I am still very new to the fantasy genre but this was an excellent way to "get my toes wet". I absolutely adored just about everything about this book. I was riveted from the first page to the last. The characters, the atmosphere, the plot, and the subtle faith message were all amazing...

    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...

    Boy am I glad I got the opportunity to read this book! I do enjoy fantasy novels every now and then - I really have to be in the mood for them. And while I may not have totally been in the mood when I started this one, it did not take long for that to change. If this is how Busse write...

    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 had seen Morgan L. Busse?s books around for several years but had not yet gotten around to trying to read one, partially because it sounded like her style might lean toward being a little darker than what I normally gravitate towards. I decided I might give ?Mark of the Raven? ...

    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...

    Fun fact, I actually got to meet Morgan at the Christy Awards. She is the sweetest soul, and she's a blast to talk to! Anywho. On to what you're actually here for...the review. ? The first book in a fantasy series is normally really focused on WORLD BUILDING. This book was n...

    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 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...

    What is this?? The last page?! I'm am not okay. For the record Mark of the Raven redeemed itself in my eyes. It became everything I was hoping. The beginning was slow, and I was kinda thinking we would jump right into the action, so when we didn't I was highly disappointed. B...

    Wow. This was a wild ride. o.O I really, really enjoyed Mark of the Raven. It's a perfect light fantasy read with some really interesting superpower elements in it, like dreamwalking (a dreamwalker can enter a person's dreams and manipulate their greatest fears or desires) and water...
