Book Description

After the inexplicable disappearance of Lilly Taylor's parents, she has no choice but to move to Canada where she unravels some frightening yet intriguing family secrets...
Her whole life had been based on a lie. Lilly had grown up in a loveless home with a father who she had barely ever seen and a mother who was... well, not very motherly.
After they mysteriously disappear without a trace, Lilly is sent to Canada where she finds a whole new way of life. A life filled with love and people who care for her. But that's not all she discovers, Lilly also finds out that she isn't who, or what, she thinks she is.
Lilly has a very special ability and it's just a matter of time before her true self starts to shine. And when it does, her life will never be the same again.
Raven is a fantasy novel for children and young adults set in the beautiful province of British Columbia.

3.0 out of 5 stars ok story February 17, 2012
By Jacinta
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
these two books are an ok story that is a good read but a few things really took away from my enjoyment.

firstly, the main character is 13, she has just come out of childhood and she gets involved with a 17 year old boy, nearly a grown man. this decision by the author just put me off of those two characters and the way they interact. not to mention the relationship progressed to 'love' very quickly. maybe I'm too old to buy into that idea.

the other issue that I had the most trouble getting over was the inaccurate mythological terms. In the book shape shifters are called changelings, changelings are something completely different. halflings, traditionally are things such as hobbits, dwarves and gnomes, here are actually not small creatures, it is used to describe half animal half human beings such as satyrs, centaurs etc. every time inaccurate terms were used I would be ripped out of my immersion in the story, a shame really as it could have been much more enjoyable for me.

lastly, I often noticed question marks placed at the end of a statement, completely throwing my inner reading voice as then I would phrase it like a question instead of a statement.

the story is quite interesting and engaging, be it a bit predictable and convenient in parts, and my complaints aside I did read both books and follow the story not to mention it was a bargain. great for a new author but I hope she can improve in some ways and get even better.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Unusual Paranormal Mystery June 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have said, this is a real page-turner and if you like paranormal mysteries, this one is for you. While Lilly, the protagonist, is just 13 years old, it is a book for all ages, adults included. It takes you away to beautiful British Columbia and presents you with the mystery of this teenager who lost her parents in London and has to start a new life with her bizarre Canadian family. You soon discover she was born with a supernatural ability, but in the beginning the author cleverly keeps from you (and her protagonist) what this ability is all about...and you can't wait to find out and you keep turning the pages...No, I am not going to tell you what it is here, that wouldn't be fair. Read the book, it's a real surprise!

When you do find out, you are presented with the fantastic world that Suzy Turner has cleverly crafted, filled with evil witches, vampires, changelings - the whole range of wild supernatural beasts and beings. The plot thickens, you worry for Lilly's well-being, and can't stop reading till the last page. It's a good thing this is the first installment of a series and that more is coming!

1.0 out of 5 stars Yuck September 8, 2011
By H. rudd
Format:Kindle Edition
This book had a great premise (and that is the only positive I can spit out for this one) but I only made it half-way through. I am sorry, but a 13 year old girl canoodling with a 17 year old boy is quite disgusting. In addition, it was poorly edited and there was NO showing only telling. I hate books that have pages upon pages of expository prose. So...on many levels YUCK! I'd give it a zero if I could.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Work on a Number of Topics January 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Raven Saga Part I: Raven, by Suzy Turner, is a good effort at starting an intriguing and shadowy storyline about a thirteen year-old girl named Lilly and her family. I wanted to give Ms. Turner's work a chance, despite the fact that I normally don't read books on mystical subjects. Ms. Turner sites J.K. Rowling as one of her inspirations and not once, but twice, are the Harry Potter series referenced in this book, a series I haven't read. Nonetheless, I am glad I read Raven because I found the whole otherworldly theme to be more a vehicle to deliver a story about other significant topics.

First, this is a tale about self-discovery. If one were to remove entirely the supernatural elements, what you'd be left with is the story of a young girl on the verge of growing up, who, after escaping terrible circumstances, discovers her roots, real family, and ultimately herself. And it all happens very quickly from where the story starts. This kind of topic can ride on the back of just about any foundation and be successful, if done well. It intrigues us all, the idea of going from a dysfunctional family, social awkwardness and rejection, to everything positive-love, family, and acceptance. But now let's add the mystical underpinnings. In addition to everything else, our main character discovers unimaginable things about herself and family, things most people would not accept or believe. It's a ride from one extreme to the next that most adolescents could not handle.

Secondly, this is a story about family issues. Our main character, Lilly, is raised by an unloving mother and estranged father. The father, we later find out, had been manipulated and almost killed by an evil I will leave unnamed here.

Wow Wow Wow, I don't even know where to begin with this review, so let me start here. Usually I am very skeptical when it comes to reading books with a paranormal aspect and I think that it's because they are so far-fetched in regards to reality that I have a hard time connecting with the characters, but this book changed that for me for sure. In fact, i'm going as far as to say that THIS IS the BEST paranormal YA book that i've ever read.

Lilly is stuck in England with an unloving mother and a barely there father, so when both of her parents disappear, Lilly gets uprooted and moved to her grandfather who she's never met halfway across the world in British Columbia, Canada. Lilly is in for a lot of suprises though, when everything and I mean everything she thought she knew about her life gets turned upside down!

This story honestly gripped me from the first page and held on tight until the last page. My only complaint about this book was that it wasn't long enough, I got to the last sentance and was devastated that the story was over, but thrilled to learn that this is the first in a series. Book 2 is due out this September, and you better believe i'll be counting down the days until I can get my hands on this book. I honestly could sing my praises for this book for days, but instead i'm going to give you a word of advice and tell you to go pick up this book and read it, I promise you will not want to miss out on this series!
