I read and loved Annabel Lee earlier this year and so needless to say I was really looking forward to The Raven, and while it was good it unfortunately didn't quite meet my expectations, I realize that this was probably largely my fault because my expectations were probably unrealistically high. I just never really connected with and "got into" this story the way I did Annabel Lee, I'm not really sure why. It could be because I was in a bit of a reading slump when I started this book and the pace seemed slow to me, also for most of this book it didn't seem to me like there was as much action as I had expected. I did like that the story line really kept me guessing about what was going to happen. I also liked that this book progressed Trudi and Samuel's relationship, I look forward to seeing what happens in their lives next.
Overall, this was a good read that I liked but I don't know that I will read it again, I do however plan to read the next book in the series!
While this book wasn't really my cup of tea, please don't just take my word for it. If this book sounds interesting to you, I recommend that you give it a try.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell publishers in exchange for my honest review, my review was not required to be positive just my honest opinion.
The above is my honest review, all thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
