    Not bad.. not great..

    If you're looking for a quick, easy sort of fast food novel, this might be the one for you. The author is not bad and the story is a relatively typical one. The protagonist accidentally becomes more powerful and has to figure out what to do with the changes that causes, while dealing with a lot of incoming drama. Personally, I struggled through it, but mostly because there were a couple of things that kept bugging me.. but I kept reading, because the dark fae Lords were absolutely captivating. Particularly, the Lord of Shadows. Raven is likeable enough, she's on the sassy side, as is the rest of the family. In fact, most of the characters in the book are likeable people. They're just also not very interesting, despite the fact that many of them are either shifters or magic wielders. At the start of the book, McKenzie actually includes a disclaimer about her use of both Canadian and U.S. spellings, which to be honest.. I didn't even register. I think most of us are so accustomed to reading work from writers all over the world, we don't pay too much attention to things like regional verbiage. With the possible exception of 'whinging.' For some reason, I hate that word. The problem for me, is McKenzie is a little bit of a gimmicky writer. The main character is grand-sired by Odin.. sort of.. and I'm not even going to get in to the debate about how these mythological figures are not his children, but rather messengers. I will say, at least the idea of her shifter background was creative, and the first time she cussed something to the effect of 'Odin's nutsac'.. it was even funny. By the second, it wasn't.. and as it continued throughout the book.. devolving into things like 'Odin's shriveled stalk,' it was just painful. Like wise, the 'ooo shiny' reaction of her inner ravens was amusing once, maybe even twice.. but then that too was overdone. Even the main character's name is a gimmicky, considering her shifter type, but she's a mortal at least.. living in our world. The author offers up more intriguing surnames to the fae dark lords.. Camhanaich and Bane, but then douses them with mundane first names like Cole and Luke. It's like she thought they needed to be both otherworldly and humanly relatable at once.. rather than through their natures over time.. through getting to know them. Structurally, the novel is sound, but the collision between Raven and the main(?) protagonist for this story seems to build as if it's going to be quite the scene, only to result in a few swings and a quick, rather disappointing.. finality. And just to keep things on point, McKenzie even includes everyone's favorite Scooby Doo ending, "I would have got away with it too, if you.." There ARE some great quotes in the book. Unfortunately, those are quotes from other writers that the author included at the start of her chapters. Give it a chance though.. perhaps you'll disagree.

    Fantastic UF Series

    Nevermore is a fantastic continuation to Conspiracy of Ravens. We get to see Raven trying to figure out her new role while balancing her normal life. Her family and their dynamics are so much fun, and I love seeing her twin with Cole's sister...and Cole's reaction to them as a couple. Cole again smokes through the pages and there is a nice twist of justice at the end. While not as action-packed as Conspiracy, Nevermore has some great characters and world-building and I can't wait to see Raven come into her own, how her relationship with Cole develops and what happens when the two worlds collide.

    Wonderful

    The snarky sense of humour that runs through this book keeps me highly entertained. Raven's relationships with, and inner monologues about, the other characters provides an indepth other world I love to inhabit for as long as the novel lasts.

    Very enjoyable

    I didn't realize this was a sequel, it didn't stop me from enjoying the book quite a lot and I will definitely look for the first book. It was a fun and fast read, I liked the writing and characters very much.

    Great Continuation

    This book was received as an ARC from J.C. McKenzie in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own. I was thrilled to see that there was a sequel to the Raven Crawford series and the turmoil that she has gone through with her twin shifting into the most powerful Fae. Now having her shifting in control, Raven still struggles with living her new life working two jobs and still having enough money to be broke. All of her life struggles are still in play and now that she still has complications to tackle. Now she gets caught up in her latest case that she must choose who she can trust and get out of this smoothly so she can get on with her life. In my honest, humble opinion, I did like Conspiracy of Ravens a lot more because of how much action there was in the plot while Nevermore focused on Raven's drama and life complications. Also, I did appreciate the Edgar Allan Poe Raven quotes but there were not enough of them and Oscar Wilde was quoted a lot in the beginning of the chapters which did not make any sense to me. I do know our readers loved the first one and this one may surprise them. We will consider adding this title to our Romance collection at the library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.
