Hey Everyone. Today I have a review for you for a book I was given in exchange for my honest and unbiased review from Online Bookclub. I had been looking forward to reading this since I received it but due to illness I didn’t get to start it as soon as I had wanted. However, now I have read it and I am ready to tell you all about it.
What is Raven’s Peak about?
Raven’s Peak is a paranormal thriller/mystery. It centers around a young woman named Abigail and a young main named Haatim. The two are thrown together in unlikely circumstances. Abigail is a demon hunter and Haatim is the son of a religious man and has lost his faith. They take a journey together to get answers which they both seek for events in their lives they haven’t yet recovered from. This leads them to the old secluded town of Raven’s Peak where not everything is as it seems.
What Did I think Of Raven’s Peak?
The book opened with a prologue set prior to when the main story starts. With a character called Authur who is highly reglious and a member of The Council. Authur clearly has a mysterious past which we don’t get into but his dealings with a demon open up the book for the story about to unfold.
All in all I did like Raven’s peak. I liked both the main characters but there was something special about Haatim’s edge of naivity that made him especially likable. Both of them were strong in different ways which made them both interesting to read.
The book was action packed from quite early on which made for interesting reading. It didn’t take me long to read the book once I got into it. The story itself was interesting and there were some unique aspects about it.
However, overall I did feel it was somewhat predictable. Predictable in the way that the majority of books involving demons often are. Standard possession of a human. The demon which took over this particular human (a child) was different from the ones I have read previously, this more than made up for the more predictable elements of the story.
The story is the first in the series and the sequel is available now and I will buy and read it. The writing style flowed well and made me, the reader able to understand parts that may have been confusing.
I did especially like the way that the environment felt real, felt normal just as we would expect to see it. This really helped imagine the scenes play out in my head.
The whole idea of The Council vs The Ninth Circle is quite intriguing. I definitely want to read more about them and their history. I have found an ebook available as a novella for The Ninth Circle which I’m hoping to delve into as well
I would rate this book a 4/5 and for those who enjoy paranormal thrillers it is defintely worth a read.
You can find a copy of Raven’s Peak and all subsequent books here on Amazon UK.
Thanks for reading.
