I’ve been on a fantasy kick lately in the book department and Conspiracy of Ravens definitely hit the spot. While the plot of shifters, magic and hot otherworldly men is nothing new. McKenzie brings on a fresh take with her lead character Raven Crawford.
Raven Crawford knows better than to venture into the seductive world of the dark fae or agree to any of their salacious promises. She plans to pay off her debts so she can get on with her life and stay far away from the denizens of the Underworld. Unfortunately, her numbskull twin steals from the most tempting and lethal fae of them all. Now, Raven must help the Lord of Shadows get back what her idiot brother stole. Her only weapons? Just a little ingenuity and a whole lot of snark. It’s suicide for sure, but she’ll do anything to protect her twin.
The story is loosely based on Norse Mythology and you will be introduced to some familiar sounding names, but a with subtle twist.
Lead character Raven is stuck with a huge debt that her ex left to her. She’s trying to scrape by working as a waitress when one mistake from her twin brother throws her world into a tailspin. Raven and her twin, Bear, are different from their family. While their siblings are Fox shifters, Raven and Bear become something else entirely. With Bear missing and some big players from the underworld searching for him, Raven must team up with the powerful Fae Cole in order to get her brother back safely. If you’re looking for a charming, engaging, paranormal romance series starter; I highly recommend Conspiracy of Ravens.
I received free ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review and I thoroughly enjoyed reading Raven’s journey. Much to my husbands annoyance of being on my kindle all night, I read the story in one sitting and cannot wait for the sequel!
