The Raven Queen needs help

I received this book in exchange for a fair review.

I have reviewed Devlin’s Door before, but on another blog. The first book of the Forest of Fae series was interesting and exciting, where Anne found a new world and friend. Towards the end of Devlin’s Door, Anne realizes that her friend Grace had been replaced.

Now, in Raven Queen, Anne learns how devious that impostor can be, the changeling is turning everyone against her. Plus, she misses Grace, whom is stuck in Forest of Fae. There is only one thing to do: get that diary and open the portal. Only by going back to the forest, would Anne be able to save her new friend.

The book has two narratives, it flips back and forth between Anne and Grace. It is easy to follow both characters as they have distinctly different voices, and have different descriptions of their environment. From the beginning, you know that there is a race against time: Grace might not survive for long.

It took a lot of planning, and a lot of luck for Anne to out smart the fake Grace. At the same time, Grace learns a lot about Forest of Fae, and the history behind some events. No doubt that some of the pieces will fit in the next book, that much I am sure.

The story ends in somewhat of a cliffhanger, but at a good/ suitable place. I have been running up and down with Anne and Grace, so a little rest is good.

Verdict

The Raven Queen takes you on a race against time to survive, and will friendship stand the test of fairies? Click To Tweet

It is fairies against a ghost, and changeling against a girl. The Raven Queen ups the ante, and the next book will be explosive. Anne and Grace’s friendship was tested in this book, and their loyalty will be rewarded (I hope) with some good news in the next installment.

You do have to read Devlin’s Door to be able to follow The Raven Queen. And if you are a fan of evil fairies and dangerous adventures, definitely worth your time.
