    One thought on “What the Raven Brings

    1. Jon Dodsley

      I received a free edition in exchange for an honest review and I must say initially that it is always difficult to review a second book in a trilogy when you haven't read the first - but I took this away for a holiday read and demolished it in very short order, so even without the first part this is an easily readable book with a great storyline, very strong characters which continue to develop throughout the book and a good basing in a historical era that I am particularly familiar with.Not onl [...]

      These books are fantastic. The second book, which takes place after the Blitz and sees Anna and Timothy Squires trying to do their bit for the war effort, is thrilling, what with dangers lurking around every corner, in the sky, and in miscommunication that threatens to keep them apart. The characters are three-dimensional and lovable in their flaws. One of the best historical YAs I've ever read. Can't wait fir part 3!

      I really enjoyed the second book. It maintained the momentum from the end of These Dark Wings. The plot is very entertaining and expands to include great new characters Cecil and Joy. I think it helps that the characters are older and experiencing life outside of the Tower. Really looking forward to Book 3!

      Anna's back! This riveting new instalment is sure to become a treasured classic. The writing is sharp and pulls you right into Anna's world. I can't wait for the third book-- I'd recommend this to anyone who loves to get involved in a great story.

      This book was sent to me free of charge in exchange for an honest and fair review:n this sequel to These Dark Wings, Anna is now 15, her Uncle Henry has passed on and she is not allowed to become Ravenmaster as her Uncle wished. So she leaves the tower and her Guardian Yeoman Oakes and becomes a female pilot in the ATA.The mystery of Anna’s father, who she believed drowned when she was 5, and the death of her Mother are resolved, and she struggles to come to terms with it. She also struggles a [...]

      You can also find this review at The Reader and the Chef . Huge thanks to the author for the review copy!I love the second book of the Ravenmaster Trilogy. What the Raven Brings was such an entertaining read and I found it inspiring. Anna Cooper is still the main character in this series but in this installment you see her turning into a young woman. A lot of things change in Anna's life and you can feel her world expanding as you read more of her story.What I Liked:My favorite part of this book [...]

      Okay, so I read the whole book on the day it came out (and it's not a short book!)These Dark Wings was one of my favourite books from 2016, and I had high hopes for What the Raven Brings - and it really is even better! Way better, in fact. It's so exciting (especially once Anna joins the air force), and she becomes so inspiring. I love all the new characters (Joy!), and the addition of Timothy Squire's POV really adds a whole new dimension to their relationship and to the world of the series. Th [...]

      These Dark Wings (Book 1 of the Ravenmaster Trilogy) ended in September 1941. The blitz had been over for a while, but daily life was still hard. Anna Cooper, whose mother was supposedly killed in an air raid, was still living in the Tower of London with her Uncle Henry. Uncle Henry was on the mend after a serious illness. The mystery of the disappearing ravens had been solved, Anna and Timothy Squire became friends, though she can’t forget his forages into bombed homes to see what he could fi [...]
