Review

"A magical, empowering gem of a book . . . I believe this book should be celebrated." --New York Journal of Books

""Part Alice in Wonderland and part Chronicles of Narnia, Jane and the Raven King is a magical, empowering gem of a book that opens up an entire genre to female readers...
Had this type of book been around when I was a young teen I might have grown into a great fan of the genre. Luckily I am to be able to share this with my daughters. I believe this book should be celebrated. We look forward to a sequel." - The New York Journal of Books" - The New York Journal of Books

I've been reading this to my kids this week and they love it. Chambers creates a rich, whimsical world full of excitement and adventure that seems to hook the young ones and keeps me entertained as well. Jane is a likable character and the story moves a good pace with some subtle positive messages throughout. I'd agree with the comparisons to Spiderwick or Potter. Let's hope Mr. Chambers can continue with this intriguing tale.

I bought this book as a gift and ended up glancing at the first couple of pages. I was immediately drawn in and ended up reading the whole thing. Chambers crafts a wonderful story full of imagination that is sure to strike a chord with young readers (and even not so young ones, apparently.) If your child has already ravaged the Harry Potter series and is looking for something new to move on to, this is a good choice.

We loved this book! My five-year-old daughter is not yet an expert reader, but she asked me to read Jane and the Raven King after a friend read it, loved it, and passed it on to us. I agreed to read it to her, but I was worried that the book might be over her head as she is only five years old.

I was pleasantly surprised to find that we were both equally engaged with the book! Even though I promised to read only a few chapters each night, we wound up reading almost half of the book in one sitting! This is coming from someone who usually falls asleep during story time, so I certainly enjoyed the book every bit as much as my daughter did! It was a very fun read.

I'm an adult, but I occaisonally enjoy looking at children's books, and this one caught my eye.
Overall, it's a great book.

The story is intersting and well paced and manages to surprise by not always adhering to the expected conventions of the genre. The book is extremely well written and while it is targeted at children, the language and the content do not feel "dumbed down" in any way. It had no difficulty keeping my interest as an adult reader, so I'm sure parents reading the book with their children will be interested and amused.

My only criticism - which is the reason that I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5 - is that I felt that it was a little overdoing it with the "anti-technology" message. Judging by Chambers's up-to-date website I'm not sure that he actually intended his book to come out this way, but it sometimes reads a bit like a luddite rant against the evils of television, computers, cell phones and technology in general.
Of course I think that the message that we don't always need to be attached to technology is a good one - but the book sometimes makes it feel as though this technology is the root of all that is bad in society, when of course it also has many postives.

This being said, however, that particular aspect of the book only takes a very small part of it. I think in general it is really an excellent book and I highly recommend it.
