REVIEW BY MERISSA - Conspiracy of Ravens (Raven Crawford #1) by J.C. McKenzie

Conspiracy of Ravens (Raven Crawford #1) - J. C. McKenzie

@JC_McKenzie, @TRRtweet, #Paranormal, #Romance, #Urban #Fantasy, 4 out of 5 (very good)


CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS is the first book in the Raven Crawford series, and we meet Raven who is half-Fae and half-shifter. She is living on a knife's edge financially due to her ex-boyfriend and is too proud to ask for help. Instead, she gives up on her dreams and works at a dead-end job.

Her life changes when her twin disappears and two dark Fae Lords enter her life. Her mother has always warned her away from the Underworld, although she doesn't really know why. This means she has a woeful lack of knowledge where this is concerned, which doesn't help when she figures out her brother's disappearance and the appearance of those two are linked.

This was a great fantasy book with plenty of detail given. I will admit to finding the first half of the book a bit slower than the second half. Some parts of it seem to be repeated, but so long as you don't mind that, it's all good. The attraction between Cole and Raven is intense and instantaneous, but Raven doesn't trust it. This book concludes nicely for this part, but also leaves it wide open for the next book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more. Most definitely recommended by me.
