“The Raven Coven” Review

Hello Friends!

I hope you guys are all doing better than I am because I’m sick again, so I slept all morning and this is way I’m doing the review just now. I have read book one of this two part series called “The Raven Tower”.

The Raven Coven”, written by Emma Miles, is a Fantasy novel published on 27th May 2019 and it’s the second part in a series.

I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Emma Miles for the eCopy of this book and for allowing me to join in the fun and being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

The Raven Coven

SynopsisThe Raven Coven Ebook Final

Kesta had left her heart across the sea. They were at peace, her people saved from slavery, and yet… her soul was uneasy.

Chem lies in chaos, its people suffering as a result of the death of the ruling sorcerers. Refugees flee the cursed Borrows, begging for help from those they had made their enemy. A Queen unknowingly makes a dark, deadly pact, and new powers rise to fill the seats left empty by the Dunham necromancers.

Author Bio

The Raven Tower 0332lr (1 of 1)I presently live in the stunning county of Dorset where I’m a cat slave to Wolfe and Piglitt I spend as much time as I can outside in nature and love exploring and learning about new cultures and languages. I’ve visited Greece, Serbia, Transylvania, Sicily and Norway as well as making several road trips around our beautiful United Kingdom. I paint, sculpt, dabble in photography and do a little archery but most of all – whenever I get a chance – I write.

My writing started from a very young age when I often found myself being the one taking charge of and entertaining all my younger cousins. They loved to hear my stories and although they mostly called for ghost stories it was fantasy I fell in love with when I read The Lord of the Rings when I was ten. I went on to write stories and short ‘books’ for my friends through school and college; then one evening whilst I was waiting for my aunt and uncle to visit an image came to my mind of a boy sitting beneath a bridge. I didn’t know who he was or why he was there, but from exploring those questions ‘The Wind’s Children’ trilogy blossomed and grew with roots going back into his far history as well as stretching out to his future. The boy’s name was Tobias.

I have since left Tobias’s world of ‘Naris’ to explore the Valley with Feather in the ‘Hall of Pillars’ which is now available through Amazon. I am now presently finding my way through Elden, the beautiful Fulmer islands, the ravaged Borrows and haunted Chem with Kesta Silene; a shamaness of sorts with a big journey ahead of her. I hope you come along to share her story and join her adventure; she needs you and you won’t regret it.

My Review

‘The Raven Coven’ is the second book and I recommend everyone to read the first book if you even already, so you can experience the full story and understand everything that you need to know to get the full picture of the series. That been said, this book picks up where ‘The Raven Tower’ ended.

Since this isn’t the first book, I really don’t want to say anything and end up giving a spoiler accidentally, so this review will be a bit open and not specific, about particular aspects of the plot.

I loved the book because of various reasons, to name some: it answers a lot of questions I had; it maintain the level of amount of magic and power; the descriptions were vivid; it explores another side of the characters life since some events happened in book one, and that made me learn some new aspects about the character.

I honestly loved the way the author took the characters with this book and it was an amazing journey into a fantasy world that was brilliantly constructed. The plot made sense to me as a continuation of book one and just like the complexion of the characters and all the different levels in theirs personalities and their stories and past, the storyline gives us many themes and relationships.

The book had a good pace that had that action feel to it, and was fun to read at some points, and exciting and adrenaline rush at others, and even interesting and curious. Also, it was emotional too, that made me connect with the characters and their thoughts. Everything was thanks to the tone of the book, the pace the plot and the descriptions that gave me a clear imagine of what was going on, and I like that.

Overall, I loved it. And I’m just sad that there won’t be any other book next because I wish to know what will happen in the future of this series. I will keep my eyes open for future books written by this author.
