  • Great end to a lovely series!

    “Numb. So numb. The only thing Selene could feel was the dull thump of her heart beating as she sat beside the window in the guest chambers the next day.” - Opening line of “Cry of the Raven” by Morgan L. Busse Cry of the Raven by Morgan L. Busse is the conclusion to the three part Ravenwood Saga. Selene and Damien stand on the brink of war as they try to unite the Great Houses to fight the empire. With Selene’s mother and one Great House on their side, the empire looks formidable and begins to breakdown the border protections. Damien is struggling with his power, he is left weaker each time he uses it, Selene’s power, however, keeps getting stronger. For both, their power represents their ability to walk with the Light. As they work through their past trauma, their relationship with the Light strengthens. I really enjoyed the way Morgan wove Christian truths, particularly on forgiveness, throughout the series and she does a phenomenal job, The book concludes with the war against the empire and I don’t cope well with bloody battle scenes, particularly ones involving horses, so if you are like me, there are parts you’ll want to skim over but it is a small part of the book. I felt the war and it’s conclusion wasn’t as interesting as the dreamscape battle so whilst I’d hoped for a more complicated end, it is a triumphant end. I did thoroughly enjoy this series’ mystery and adventure. If you enjoy Christian speculative fiction, this is one to read. It’s a four out of five on the enJOYment scale!

  • Wow, this is Great!

    Good and evil clash in part three of this exciting story. How can the Great Houses hope to win when they are not all united? Trouble is brewing because Damien has begun having trouble using his gift—without which, all will be lost. Lady Selene discovers how her gift was meant to be used, and puts it into practice. Her mother and the Dark Lady team up to destroy her; can Selene defeat them when it is two against one? Others do not trust Selene, and view her every move with suspicion, will that keep her from being able to fully help with the cause? There are revelations in this tale, and the unexpected, including what becomes of Selene and her mother. I do not like fantasy, but I LOVED THIS BOOK! It is a captivating story that will grab you and not let you go. The drama, plus all the twists and turns, will keep you on the edge of your seat. It is told from a Christian viewpoint. The only negative? This is the last of the series. I highly recommend this 5-plus star book to everyone; it is that good. No matter what your taste, you will love this book! Bethany House Publishing through NetGalley has provided bookreadingtic with a complimentary copy of, Cry of the Raven, for the purpose of review.

  • Everything I Wanted and More!

    This book made me break my own rule. I confess that a quarter of a way in I HAD to flip to the end to make sure it would have certain character(s) alive and well. Not only that, but even with knowing a tiny piece of the ending, I caught myself praying everyone would make it. … *Praying.* If that does not say how intense and engaging this story was, then neither what I have to share about the book will either. LOL! It's been a very long time since I have done either, and this book continued to surprise me in so many ways. I LOVED the story as a whole. It was everything I wanted in an epic trilogy. (Like were talking I had internal music playing with scenes and breaking out in goosebumps with scenes. #sogood) Fighting, overcoming, growing, and a few other spoiler things that I refuse to mention becaue one must read it to enjoy it. However, on a deeper level, Selene's words and Damien's struggle pierced me where I found myself having to put the book down and process how much I needed it. No matter how hard sometimes life might be, Jesus is ALWAYS with us. Even in the darkness, His Light shines and burns in our hearts. And letting go doesn’t mean forgetting. <3 Damien has always been my favorite because he is beyond relatable and it was no exception in Cry of the Raven, but Selene has also become a favorite too. I loved this incredible couple and how they encouraged and loved one another. It was beautiful and fiction needs more of this. There is soooo much more I could say about this story, but I will say that though I really struggled liking Selene in book one, this series will be a series I hold close. I have been deeply encouraged by it and for the first time, I put a sticky note in a book because it was so profound. In summary, Cry of the Raven is so so so good! Highly recommend to Christian fantasy readers who love a blend of action and romance and epicness!

  • Great!

    A thrilling and heartfelt conclusion to an exciting and thought-provoking trilogy! I loved “The Ravenwood Saga” so much! From the get-go, it was totally different from what I was expecting, from both a romance and fantasy perspective. Author Morgan L. Busse surprised me with her ability to weave the two elements together so seamlessly and in a way that is sure to excite fans of both genres. The descriptions had me immersed into the world that this author had created and the battle-scenes had me cheering the characters on. I loved Damien and Selene and found myself surprised to find I also had a soft spot for some less savory characters, lol! No spoilers, but I found myself genuinely surprised a time or two with some of the events that occurred within the story, also! Overall, this was a terrific story and I look forward to seeing what else this author has to offer!

    Thanks for your feedback!
