Raven Crawford wears the crown like the Queen that she is in this latest installment of A Conspiracy of Ravens series.
Truth can be ugly and part-time waitress, casual PI investigator, and half-fae shifter, Raven Crawford, can’t deny she owes the Lord of War a favour. If she defaults on her debt, she relinquishes all her power to a man who doesn’t know the meaning of mercy. And she thought her bank loans were bad. With her new role in the Underworld contending with her debt to a dictator, a budding romance with the Lord of Shadows, and her need to pay the bills, Raven is in serious need of balance. But the moment the dark Fae walked into her diner months ago, she’s been off-balance. It’s time for Raven to pull up her big girl socks and prove to everyone she’s no longer the burnt-out waitress with a nifty parlor trick. She’s the Queen of Corvids.
Raven has come a long way since the first book in the series. She’s discovering just how truly powerful she is and how to use that power to maintain her title as Queen. Raven and Co. still have all the comedy, adventure, love and heart that has filled the first two books. The romance between Raven and Cole is so natural, you can’t help but to keep rooting for them. Queen of Corvids also has resolutions to a few storylines from the series. We find out what exactly Ravens job entails as being Queen and how it helps her with the crippling debt she has been in from her loser ex. We find the Lord of War is still not a patient man and not only is he expecting Raven to do something about the humans, but the humans are expecting Raven to do something about the Dark world of the Fae.
Coming into her own with her Scythe, Raven is still learning how to wield it’s power, the Queen learns to rely more on herself and not Cole or her personal bodyguard. I love the growth of weapon warper, Rourke and I hope he will be featured in future novels.
This book is fast paced but does not skimp on the action and story. I highly recommend this series if you love Magic, Fae and all things deliciously good. Thank you to Netgalley and J.C. McKenzie for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
