Publisher's Summary

Lady Selene is the heir to the Great House of Ravenwood and the secret family gift of dreamwalking. As a dreamwalker, she can enter a person's dreams and manipulate their greatest fears or desires. For the last hundred years, the Ravenwood women have used their gift of dreaming for hire to gather information or to assassinate.

As she discovers her family's dark secret, Selene is torn between upholding her family's legacy - a legacy that supports her people - or seeking the true reason behind her family's gift.

Her dilemma comes to a head when she is tasked with assassinating the one man who can bring peace to the nations, but who will also bring about the downfall of her own house.

One path holds glory and power and will solidify her position as Lady of Ravenwood. The other path holds shame and execution. Which will she choose? And is she willing to pay the price for the path chosen?

So glad this is on audiobook!

This book is amazing! Of course, I knew it would be since I've adored every single novel this author has ever written! I was so excited that one of her books is finally on audiobook!

This one started off slow. But the sort of slow where the plot and worldbuilding are unfolding like a flower, one petal at a time. Just at the moment when I wasn't sure where this was going, stuff started happening, deceptions upon deceptions and betrayals and plots and planned assassinations, and everything just got tense and crazy.

This is a great start to this new series, and now I am even more eager for book two!

Also, I read most of this book via audiobook, and the audiobook version is well done. The narrator does a really good job! There was a couple parts where the voices weren't as distinct as they could have been, but for the most part the narrator speaks clearly and in a pleasant tone that moves along at a balanced clip without dragging the story down. I hope the next books in the series have the same narrator since she did such a good job!

Epic

I read this book a year ago and was pleased to find it on audio book. I feel like the narrator got the voices right, especially Lady Ragna's. Perfect job. Now to go and get the next one.

Goosebumps

Wow! Well done, Morgan Busse. And well done, Jaimee Draper. I forgot I was listening to one person. Mark of the Raven is a riveting fantasy that gave me chills at multiple points through the story. I’ve already made my advanced purchase of the next book.

All build up but little action

This is a book that I kept considering a "return" on. It is never ending chatter and poorly written description of the characters and events. Not a lot of depth to the characters. It is also pretty predictable. As I entered one chapter...it was a complete description of a 4 year old child...a whole chapter! I know she has a role in the story line but it's just a partially descriptive chapter and just too darned long for my attention span. It goes on and on. Not a lot of tie-in to the rest of the book. Not mentioned again. Just goes on to another descriptive chapter about another character in the book. Eventually they tie together but way too much writing and not enough connecting on the story line.

YA Romance

The idea is intriguing. The writing style is solid. The heroine’s spiritual turmoil is too repetitive and doesn’t evolve much until right at the end. All of the romance and beauty descriptions and inner longings made me want to scream. I’m going to try the second book in hopes that we get to more of the adventure and wielding of gifts.

Creative!

This was such a creative start to the series! Such a unique perspective on fear and light! I was very impacted by it and would definitely listen to again! Now on to book 2!

The narrator needs to be replaced

The narrator is very breathy and made the story really difficult to listen to. I haven’t finished the book yet but her reading is very distracting.
