Review: Flight of the Raven (The Ravenwood Saga #2) by Morgan L. Busse

About the Book
Selene Ravenwood, once the heir to House Ravenwood, is now an exile. On the run and free of her family's destiny, Selene hopes to find the real reason her family was given the gift of dreamwalking. But first she must adapt to her new life as wife to Lord Damien Maris, the man she was originally assigned to kill.

While adjusting to her marriage and her home in the north, her power over dreams begins to grow. As the strongest dreamwalker to exist in ages, her expanding power attracts not only nightmares but the attention of the Dark Lady herself.

With a war looming on the horizon and a wicked being after her gift, Selene is faced with a choice: embrace the Dark Lady's offer, or search out the one who gave her the gift of dreamwalking. One path offers power, the other offers freedom. But time is running out, and soon her choice will be made for her.

My Thoughts

I can't even begin to tell you how much I absolutely loved this book. It's everything I was hoping for and so much more. I didn't think it could top Mark of the Raven, but it did. I'd give it more than five stars if I could.

This story is very much about Selene's journey from the darkness to the light. Fighting her way out the darkness she grew up in, the only way of life she's known, and finding her true purpose in the Light. With the help of her new husband Lord Damien Maris, she's seeing the world in a whole new way. Leaving her home in the Magyr Mountains and going to Nor Esen is such an eyeopener for Selene. The way Damien treats his people with kindness and honor and the amount of respect they show him in return is so different from the fear and terror her mother instilled in her own people. It's such a refreshing change. I loved watching Selene discover her true self.

There was such a beautiful and powerful message in this novel. It took my breath away and brought tears to my eyes. I know it's early in the year to be saying this, but Flight of the Raven will definitely be making my best of the year list. I highly recommend this series to everyone, even if you're new to fantasy. It's beyond amazing.

Five Stars


  1. It's always nice when the second book in a series surpasses the first. I still need to read Mark of the Raven. If only the rest of my life didn't keep interfering with my reading time. ;D
