Title: Raven’s Strike
Author: Patricia Briggs
Series: Raven #2
Seraph and her family are finally headed home after saving Tier and the Emperor. But things in Redern are not how they left them. Evil has been attacking and new issues arise from the damage done to Tier’s order.
This was just as enjoyable as the first book. This family is so fascinating and wholesome. I love how they just keep adopting other people and are always taking care of others. All of them have really started embracing their abilities and it really shows in this one, especially with Seraph. She is a force of nature and I loved watching her kick ass.
This book also gives us the true history of the Travelers, the Orders, and Hennea, which was all fascinating. This is just a fascinating world of magic and I really loved learning more about it. Also, I really enjoyed the love story between Hennea and Jes. It was cute, and just the right amount of love to go with all the danger and action.
I wasn’t expecting who the bad guy behind everything was, which is great. I love when I don’t figure it out until the big reveal. As for the rest of this book, I enjoyed every minute of it, especially with all the great characters. Phoran especially was a character that I wasn’t expecting to love as much as I did. Overall, this was a wonderful fantasy world and a wonderful bunch of characters. I highly recommend this duology if you are looking for a magical fantasy world.
