“Raven Storm” Review

Hello Friends!

I hope you guys are having a lovely Wednesday. I have read book one and two of this series called “The Raven Tower” and “The Raven Coven”. So if the author is familiar, now you know.

Raven Storm, written by Emma Miles, is a Fantasy novel, the third novel in the series, published on 13th July 2020.

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.


Raven Storm Cover

Fear walks with those in power.

Divided, the land of Chem hangs in the balance. In the west the Ravens seek to bring safety to women, and an end to slavery. In the east the remaining covens cling to their power, refusing to give up their way of life to foreign invaders. Across both lands the priests whisper and plot, their gods a shadowy threat hanging over them all.

To protect their young family, Kesta and Jorrun have made their home in the Raven Tower of Elden. Unable to abandon their responsibility or friends, they remain embroiled in the fight to the north. Whilst peace and friendship blossom between the Fulmers, Borrows and Elden, the arrival of strangers turns the court of Taurmaline upside down. 

The history of the Fire-walkers is about to catch up with them, and the Fire-spirit’s truth will be revealed.

About the Author

I often get asked when I knew I was a writer; the answer is always. A writer is what I am, it’s in my soul. There have been times in my life when I couldn’t write, and times when my writing has been the only thing that kept me going. I think I always longed for something deeper from life, something more meaningful, and I found it in my imagination and in the music of words.

It was poetry which first caught my attention, and whilst my younger cousins called for ghost stories it was animals I first wrote of. I think I gravitated toward fantasy because of the freedom it gives, I could create my own worlds and decide my own rules. My Wind’s Children trilogy was born from an image that came to me whilst daydreaming, of a young man sitting alone below a bridge. I didn’t know who he was; it turns out neither did he, but we found out together.

I’m now working on my seventh book and love writing more than ever, it’s an addiction, an obsession, but one I now share with my wonderful writing family. My beta readers, my editor, and you, my readers, having you with me on my journey means the world to me.
I write as much as I can around work, but I also try to squeeze in a ridiculous amount of hobbies! I’m a wildlife photographer and do a little archery. I paint, sculpt with clay, withies and driftwood, preferring to be outdoors if I can. I still have a love for the theatre, having started out in life studying backstage crafts, and a great love for language. I speak a little French, Romanian and Italian, ma non molto bene!

My Review

It’s quite fantastic to read a book series. To go back to a known world and group of characters and still be surprised by certain events. That’s what reading this book reminded me of. I have read the previous books and enjoyed them so much that I was excited to keep going.

Again we follow Kesta and Jorrun in this new journey full of possible dangers, mysteries and action. Of course, surprises are the best, and I love when an author creates wow moments that surprise me because those twists, turns and unexpected scenes are the best. For me they make the book dynamic.

The characters keep being amazing and well-written. They keep growing with the book and with the events they experience, which makes them so real in my mind. I still love the characters I had met before, and I loved getting to meet a new group of people. The keep things fresh and interesting.

Then there is the world building and plot. How things get connected, how we learn more about this world and the society – in all its aspects. It’s actually something that gets me going. The storytelling and the flow of the story, as well as how we uncover what must need to know in terms of how things work in this world, especially with the new aspects and new information that have been given to us.

Overall, I loved this book, maybe more than the previous ones. Then again, it’s the latest one, and every time I’m surprised and get to see more of the author’s brilliant mind in a book, I guess it end up being my favorite. So I can’t wait to read the next one.
