First, I must say that paranormal is one of my favorite genres. I love shifter books but sometimes things get a little redundant when they are all similar. Call of the Raven is so much more. There is a lot of world building and the author does a fantastic job. And some of the characters, well, they are a little intense but soooo relateable. Definitely not your normal shifter story.
Asher is the Keeper and is destined to die an early death once he falls in love. Grant is his predecessor and tried to set things in motion to break the curse. To try and avoid this fate Asher has closed himself off and vowed not to love or fall in love. With this he has neglected his family and society. 10 long years have passed and secrets are unfolding. Asher and his group of proteges are trying to find Grant's daughter (that no one knew about) and Asher finds the woman who he has only seen in his dreams.
Things then get real sticky and the angle is not clear on who and what is really happening. The story keeps you guessing, constantly trying to figure it out. You will be as confused as the characters (in the best way possible) as you feel like you are right in the middle of the story. The hierarchy of the shifters and their society is completely different than what I have read in the past. This is truly a great start to what I expect to be a great series. I am looking forward to the 2nd book and more from this author!
Sadly, this is the part when all my love for the book ends. The story is wonderful, characters are fleshed out, scenes are described well and visually. Then, my Kindle version goes off the rails. Multiple typographical errors, formatting flubs, missing spaces between words, added spaces, punctuation, the list goes on. Every time I stumbled on one of these it took me out of the story and I spent a minute re-reading the section to get around the glaring error and back into the scene. I, personally, would love it if the author took the Kindle version to a proofreader and cleaned up the text. It may just be me, but, when you publish the written word to the masses, there should be a bit of care taken to ensure there are as few problems as can be. Final Answer : Great story, but errors run thru it.
This story is about the Lake family lead by Asher Lake who is a wolf. He is the leader or "keeper" of shape-shifters called the Union. He is not well liked by some and hated by others. He was thrust into this position by the "keeper" before him early in his life due to a curse over that position. Needless to say, he has not done a very good job, but things are about to change.
Along with his brothers, Ari and Nixon, and some other shifters you will meet along the way, he sets out so solve the curse hanging over his life.
I highly recommend this book!
