Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier and Friday Memes

This week for Book Beginnings on Fridays and The Friday 56 I've selected Raven Flight by Juliet Marillier.

This is the second book in her YA Shadowfell series. I was pleasantly surprised by my love for the first book (although very disappointed in the cover choice). Raven Flight has been given a much better cover - far more suitable for its intended audience, so we're off to a good start!

Book Beginnings:
As the lone traveller approached, the five Enforcers spread out in a line across the path.

Page 56:
The five tiny folk came forward, bearing their wreath. It was about the size of a woman's wristlet. They stopped in front of Regan and held it up. 


  1. Very ominous and intriguing.

  2. Good beginning that makes me want to read more. The excerpt from Page 56 intrigued me too. Sounds like a good story.

  3. Somehow 'lone traveller' sounds like an awesome thing to be! The F56 sounds adorable and the cover is very nice! On a second note, would you like to be part of my blog tour for 'Confessions of a Harry Potter Fan'? Drop me an email, if yes :)
