Publisher's Summary

A quiet little mountain town is hiding a big problem. When the townsfolk of Raven's Peak start acting crazy, Abigail Dressler is called upon to find out what is happening. She uncovers a demonic threat unlike any she's ever faced and finds herself in a fight just to stay alive.

She rescues Haatim Arison from a terrifying fate and discovers that he has a family legacy in the supernatural that he knows nothing about. Now she's forced to protect him, which is easy, and also trust him if she wants to save the townsfolk of Raven's Peak. Trust, however, is considerably more difficult for someone who grew up living on the knife's edge of danger. Can they discover the cause of the town's insanity and put a stop to it before it is too late?

    "Excellent horror!"

    I finished this in 2 days, obviously its engaging. The main character is a bit of a wuss, but he played well off the other strong female lead. I had thought this was more of a horror murder mystery but it was pretty much a horror good vs evil demon in current days story. I loved it. I now must download the second in the series to see what happens next! The narrator was great and was easy to follow! I received a free review copy of this book at my request in exchange for an honest review!

    "Loved it, thought the book and narrator were great"
    If you could sum up Raven's Peak in three words, what would they be?

    Fast fun exciting


    What other book might you compare Raven's Peak to and why?

    Anything by Jim Butcher with the Dresden Files


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene with the kid in the forest. Chilling.


    Who was the most memorable character of Raven's Peak and why?

    I loved Haatim and Abigail and felt like they were unique and different in the genre which is so white male dominated. It made it feel fresh.

    Story
    "Rough Start but well worth sticking with."

    The beginning of the story was a little confusing because it just drops into the middle of something we know nothing about. As the story progresses, the beginning gets explained and becomes much clearer. I know this technique is used quite often, but this story opening expects you to know something about where it is going.
    Beyond this (about the first half hour or so), the story is really good. Well written from that point out and thoroughly enjoyable. The concept was interesting and the story progression was fast paced.
    The Narrator was great. Struggled a little in the beginning, but I think that was more the story than the narrator, but after that, she did a fine job.

    I received a free copy of this audiobook and I am leaving a voluntary review.

    "A fast paced engaging thriller"

    Raven's Peak is a fast paced, engaging thriller and the hours that I listened to it totally flew by - there was never a dull moment! I particularly liked the reader Stephanie Dillard's style with regard to her portrayal of the character Abigail. She used a voice that was often nearly devoid of affect (except when Abigail was really stirred up) which did a nice job of conveying that we were not dealing with a normal girl. Abigail had a very rough upbringing, to say the least, and her talents in her field of pursuit were almost savant-like. In fact, Dillard's portrayal of Abigail in Raven's Peak hearkened back to Simon Vance's portrayal of Lisbeth Salander in the Millenium Series which, for me, was a joy to re-visit. I love characters like Lisbeth Salander and Raven's Abigail Dressler because they're so mysterious and leave you wanting to know more and more and more. Raven's other characters were interesting as well and the character development, though a bit sparse at times for my taste, had its desired impact in that I wanted to pick up the next book in the World on Fire series to learn more. Each of the central characters has a dark past but is trying to do right (very Batman; complicated hero/reluctant hero) which made the novel all the more compelling. The interactions between characters were fresh and quick witted and the descriptions of scenes as they played out were spot on/satisfying...particularly the truly wacky scenes in that poor mountain village (man, I felt bad for those people!). Overall, I would recommend Raven's Peak to anyone seeking a good fast read in the thriller/scifi genre. Thank you very much to Lincoln Cole, Stephanie Dillard, and Audiobook Boom...it was my pleasure to provide my unbiased review for Raven's Peak.

    Story
    "Great start to a new series of Demon Hunting"

    Abigail Dressler is a demon hunter. While chasing down a lead, she saves the life of a man who had been hired to spy on her. Haatim had unknowingly accepted the assignment from a Demon possessing a man. It seemed like an easy thing to do until he got involved they tried to kill him. He tags along with Abigail, initially to her dismay, because if he stays behind, his life will be in danger. Abigail is sent to a small town called Raven's Peak, for what she is really told. But once there, there is something about a church in the woods that seems oddly familiar to Abigail. Could she have been there before and her memory erased? Then a young boy goes missing, people in the town start acting strangely and an ancient evil is on the verge of being unleashed.

    This was a pretty exciting book/listen. Stephanie Dillard did a great job of bringing the story and the tension to life. Lincoln Cole has written a paranormal thriller that keeps twisting and turning, sometimes leaving you confused, but then the next twist brings more things to light and things start making sense. It's like you are there with Abigail and Haatim. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    "Good, creepy start"

    I enjoyed it a lot, it was just a shade gorier than I like. Interesting premise though, and I don't remember the last time I read a book with a black heroine. It was different, but in a good way. I liked Hakim more than Abigail I think, and I hope they get closer in the next book because they made a really good team in this one. Can't wait to see what happens next in the series!

    "Raven's Peak"

    ** I received this audiobook in exchange for a honest review**

    The narrator did a great job. She has a very nice voice. The production was great, no problems there.
    The story. Well... i didn't think it matched up to the description. Abby goes to Raven's Peak first then everyone goes crazy. The characters were fine but I didn't really click with any of them. Abby belongs to an order that helps protect the world against the supernatural.She's a solider that has lost the trust of most of the order. So demon hunting ensues. The story was ok, just not what I was expecting. One thing that kept standing out to me over & over- we, in the U.S., don't use meters. It was kinda aggravating. If this is a series, I don't think I'll read the next book.

    "Great Paranormal Series!"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This was a great paranormal book. It was classified as horror, but I'm not sure I agreed with the classification. There was some horrificness (if that's even a word) but it felt more like a Jim Butcher (Harry Dresden series) or John G. Hartness book (Quincy Harker series). The story was great and the characters were interesting. I also thought the narrator did a great job. She didn't struggle with voicing male characters as I've experienced with other female narrators. She did what a good narrator is supposed to, she brought the characters to life. I'll definitely look for more in this series.
