Flora Review: Raven (The Raven Saga #1) by Suzy Turner

Hello, my lovelies. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about Raven by Suzy Turner. The first book in her young adult fantasy trilogy, The Raven Saga.

What’s Raven about?


I downloaded Raven in 2016 because it was free on Amazon UK. However, I realised after reading the first few chapters, that I’d already read this story as part of the Darlings Of Darkness: A Vampire Anthology back in 2015. I downloaded Book 2 December Moon and Book 3 The Lost Soul and used this re-read as a refresher.

What did I think about it?

This is the first book of a Teen/Young Adult series called “The Raven Saga”. As you all may remember me saying before:

teen/YA books are not my choice of reading material.

I almost ALWAYS find them tedious, frustrating and it becomes increasingly challenging to care about the characters.  

…but boy, was I pleasantly surprised by this book! I loved everything about it; very easy to read and beautifully written from the viewpoint of our thirteen-year-old main character, Lilly Taylor, but without being juvenile in plot.

This story is about family relationships.

A story dealing with tragedy, experiencing first love and heartache. With a paranormal twist that includes werewolves, shifters, witches, vampires and, of course, magic.  

This book made me laugh as well as shed a few tears. I really got involved with Lilly and all of the supporting characters. I liked that some of the story’s mysteries were solved by the end of this book with some happy endings while letting others mysteries remain elusive.

I’m duly impressed and look forward to reading book 2 “December Moon” and Book 3 “The Lost Soul”.

Keep reading to find out more about this trilogy and its author.

I'm in my late forties, my interests are varied but since menopause hit a few years ago, I find myself becoming a "grumpy old woman" all too frequently - where has my infinite patience gone!?! Lol!
I bought a Kindle in the summer of 2013 and haven't stopped reading since. If you want to know more about me, check out my blog -
