If you have not read the first two books, vamoose and go read them, then read this one.
It's difficult to review this without spoilers. But as a big fan of Jack Of Thorns and Knight Of Flames, I LOVED this book and devoured it in a single marathon sitting.
It answers many questions brought up in the first two books and poses new ones. We also have some decent character growth. Laurence and Quentin are stronger and better than they were when they first met. And readers of the first two books should be happy that in Lord Of Ravens, Quentin finally makes a big breakthrough in the sex department. Finally finally finally.
My only regret is that I've got who knows how many months until the next book comes along. However, I can't wait until I get my hands on it. I am very excited for the next book.
Part of it is that so much of the work Laurence and Quentin did, on themselves and their relationship is starting to pay off. They're getting better at talking to each other , better at having sex. Not perfect, oh no, that would be too easy, but progress. Quentin can still be so much in the dark that he flips out, and poor Laurence has new secrets to carry.
Their skills are growing too: both of them find new ways to use their power, ways to save each other and the young people they acquired in the second book. Watching them find new skills is a delicious story arc. Some of this is likely to create havoc in future books, something I am very much looking forward to.
The tension is extreme: both new-found allies and newly realized enemies ramp up the stakes. It's a masterful stroke to twist the reader's guts. Everything is accelerating, even the relationship. Neil Storm turns up again to make everyone think new thoughts, even if he thinks he's just giving people a hard time.
With very book in this series I find myself begging for more: the adrenaline is there.
I need Book 4.
Although... once Laurence looked back to see what had been done to Quentin... ugh, that man's father should be severely punished. No wonder Quentin goes into one of his "episodes" when someone even hints at sex. Grr... I cannot wait until they finally get revenge on that man.
In this story, Laurence and Quentin develop more gifts, and Laurence starts to learn magic. This turns Quentin off, because of... well, his father, but Laurence seems to be learning well, and I'm interested to see his talents grow in the rest of the books.
Well, now onto book #4! :)
We get to see their relationship blossom and grow, as well, as they open up to each other. However, Laurence also learns truths about Quentin's past that Quentin himself has no memory of. Amelia Faulkner jokingly suggested a 'Chapter 13 Recovery Group' and I actually kind of needed it. This series never shies away from dealing with the issues the characters have, be it drug abuse or terrifying blackouts, but witnessing the root of Quentin's deep-seated terror is gut-wrenching.
Still, an amazing book and I am absolutely looking forward to the fourth installment!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
