The Prince of Ravens
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The Prince of Ravens has vanished.
Word spreads quickly from the Fortress of the Empress, through the dark streets of Lucien, and to the far corners of the Empire of Ages. The Children are summoned to the Fortress, and the people talk in muffled whispers, if they dare to talk at all, of secret plots and ancient prophecies. Some say the Prince was murdered, others that he was kidnapped; but underneath it all runs a darker word, one full of terrifying possibility:
Rumor begets rumor, and soon the whisper of truth is lost in the swirling winds of growing fear. For the Prince of Ravens is the prophesied Lord of Death, and on his shoulders rests the fate of the Empire.
I thoroughly enjoyed this entire series! The characters are interesting and the plot is extremely engaging. Once I was invested in the story, I had a hard time putting these books down.
An immersive read
Full of very unexpected turns! I will say my favorite thing about this book, as with most books, is the attention to character detail and development. The title character undergoes an incredible change as the story progresses. I did not originally like him- he was bratty, entitled (as one may expect from a Prince), and unpredictable. But he was an odd one from the get go and different from any of the other Children, and as The Prince of Ravens continued to interact with my favorite characters, Tomaz and Leah, I started to become addicted to the book. Without giving anything away, I just had to see what he'd do next- would he be caught and killed? Would he return to his home of his own volition, or bring Tomaz and Leah real harm by being with them? The book ends with yet ANOTHER plot twist, and I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next!
