An infamous love, destined nevermore,
For death could not claim, the enchanting Lenore.

Cursed by the malevolent spirit of the Headless Horseman, Ireland Crane ventures to Manhattan in search of a way to break her soul crushing bond. Instead, she discovers the lines between fact and fiction are blurring once more. Croaking ravens. Telltale hearts. Could the works of Poe be coming to pass with handsome Wall Street Midas Ridley Peolte as their unwilling target?

She walks the Earth, a plague on mankind,
searching for he, her rotted heart doth pine.

Together, the two unknowingly release a dark force death itself could not tame. Surrounded by the unrelenting violence and mayhem they’ve unleashed, Ireland feels her control over the Horseman slipping. Before the beast within consumes her, she and her crew must follow the clues of the dead to right a centuries’ old wrong. Will it be enough to sate the Horseman’s appetite?

Hell hath no fury like a ghoul scorned.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Much like like previous book Crane, Raven bounces back and forth between the present day and the past weaving a complex storyline that spans the ages with a wonderful blending of humor and macabre.

“If you fall asleep here you will wake up with a dolphin tramp stamp. I promise you that.”

The playful banter between characters even at the grimmest of times as always was a fun way to keep things from getting too disturbing with this dark of a storyline, which they certainly could have!

“I’m going to get the innocent bystanders out of the way so your inner monster can slap the stupid out of his inner monster and get him off the ledge. Sound like a plan? Good. Go Team Horseman.”

My only complaints such as they are about Raven are the same as they were for Crane. I want more! I can only hope we get some more answers in the next book because I have too many questions that demand an answer!

The following two tabs change content below.
A simple man with complex tastes. He's able to leap genres in a single bound, enjoying a wide variety of books. A lover of multiple fandoms he's always willing to Boldy Go hunting Horcruxes as long as The Force is with him. And for some reason decided that doing this bio in the third person sounded better. But in all seriousness, I promote books and authors that interest me. I love covers and blurbs that catch my eye. And love to get lost in a forest of words.
