Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier

I picked up my copy of book two in the Shadowfell series a little cautiously.

I enjoyed the first book, but was so disappointed with the cover and the marketing that I wasn't sure if I wanted to invest too much in continuing the series.

Fortunately Pan Macmillan have rethought the cover situation and have chosen an older looking jacket for Raven Flight.

But, of course, the cover has very little to do with what's going on inside. And once again, Marillier has swept me away into her world of little folk, evil kings and rebellion.

Neryn is a likeable, believable character. Her task as Caller to gain proficiency in her skills is the impetus for this novel as the rebels gather strength and develop their plans behind the scenes.

Some the events are a little predictable, but it's such an enjoyable, well-told story that it doesn't matter very much.

I will certainly read book three when it comes out.

Raven Flight is due for publication in Australia July 2013.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
