Selene Ravenwood, once the heir to House Ravenwood, is now an exile. On the run and free of her family’s destiny, Selene hopes to find the real reason her family was given the gift of dreamwalking. But first she must adapt to her new life as wife to Lord Damien Maris, the man she was originally assigned to kill.

While adjusting to her marriage and her home in the north, her power over dreams begins to grow. As the strongest dreamwalker to exist in ages, her expanding power attracts not only nightmares but the attention of the Dark Lady herself.

With a war looming on the horizon and a wicked being after her gift, Selene is faced with a choice: embrace the Dark Lady’s offer, or search out the one who gave her the gift of dreamwalking. One path offers power, the other offers freedom. But time is running out, and soon her choice will be made for her.

My Dive in Review:

Flight of the Raven by Morgan L. Busse is an amazing story about a woman’s search for meaning.

At the end of Mark of the Raven we leave Selene in a hurried escape from her home, leaving behind her family and everything she knows to begin an unplanned marriage to Lord Damien. This sequel is everything I hoped it would be. It was emotional and thought provoking. It explores the desire we all have to know why we are here and what we are meant to do.

I am not a romance reader but I found myself deeply invested in whether Selene and Damien would make the most of their marriage. This is one of the few books that delves into relationships right. It realistically shows how hard they can be, because you are never really sure what the other person is thinking. 

But the true stand out character of this book was Selene’s sister Amara. She struck me as unnecessarily antagonistic towards her older sister who was never anything but loving. In this book Amara takes on the responsibilities of being heir to house Ravenwood. She realizes the struggle her sister had to deal with but takes it on in order to protect her younger sister. I found the circular nature of her character arc satisfying and ultimately redemptive for the character. I went from hating her to wishing she had a bigger part in the book, though her part is still really important.

The ending was both sorrowful and hopeful. I am looking forward to the next installment of this saga.

*I was given a free copy of this novel by the publisher for the purpose of giving my honest opinion.*
