Publisher's Summary

Aven walks a cursed path, and the white raven follows - ever quiet, ever lurking, never coming near. Is it the reason for her curse? Or does it hold the key to her redemption? 

In modern-day Salem, Aven is enjoying her 13th life. She has a thriving shop, true friends, and maybe even a man brave enough to stay. But the reality of Aven’s existence haunts her. A dark secret buried in the distant past, locked away by magick, promises to shatter all she holds dear. When the truth of her connection to the white raven is discovered, it is more horrifying than she could have imagined. 

Perhaps some curses should remain unbroken. 

Emotional and gripping, this captivating debut novel is filled with vivid imagery that will carry you on a roller coaster journey of suspense, tears, anger, and laughter.

Enjoyable story

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review

I enjoyed this story. I enjoyed the flow of the story and found some of the problems the characters faced very intriguing. Occasionally I would feel like a character was behaving in a way that didn't fit with their overarching behavior. I really enjoyed the different voices Wade used to differentiate between characters. They were distinct which really helps me when I listen to a book.

Definitely worth checking out

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

This was an interesting tale of witches and reincarnation. I found I was drawn in fairly quickly and that I cared about what happens to Aven. I thought the premis was intriguing and the narration was engaiging. All in all, worth checking out.

Cute Witch Novel

The White Raven drew me in almost instantly. I listened to it while traveling and ended up completing the Audible version within 4 days of starting. The character of Aven is very no nonsense and likable. She is currently living her 13th life in today’s time after many persecuted lives in the past. She finally finds love from friends to go along with the animals and fairies that are attracted to her presence. Many other novels about witches have a period of self-discovery but Aven knows exactly who she is (if not her complete past) along with her values and power from the beginning of the book. The characters are likable though not deep. If you come to this book looking for development like Discovery of Witches you will be disappointed however if you want a sweet story with a fast pace this is for you.

A cursed reincarnating witch

This author is a new one to me, but I enjoyed this tale she crafted of a witch who has been cursed to reincarnate time after time, this time round seems to have found a home where she can be happy with the life she has built and the friends around her, but unfortunately her past has a way of catching up with her.

Along with Aven and the titular white raven, Ren with whom she has a mysterious connection, there is an entertaining mix of allies and enemies that contribute to an entertaining story that could very easily lead into a series if the author chooses to return to these characters in the future.

The narrator of this book enhances the story with suitably distinctive voices for the main characters when the perspective switched to them, even the raven got a good voice for example and the book was stronger for it.
