Title: Raven’s Children

Author: Sabrina Chase

Genre: Science Fiction

Publisher: Worlds Away Press

Publish Date: Sometime in July 2012

Available at: Not yet available

I received an ARC courtesy of the author.

Summary: (This review may contain spoilers for both readers who haven’t read book one and for readers for book two.)

Moire and the crew of the Raven continue to evade Toren. They continue to salvage ships in the hopes of accumulating enough money to build enough defenses for Sequoyah against the attack they know will happen when Toren discovers Sequoyah. Meanwhile, they launch an offensive against Toren to stop the manufacturing of the Created.

Review:

So much happens in this book I couldn’t quite summarize it. The action was non-stop. It was one long rollercoaster of movement. I was left breathless and I loved every minute of it.

Ennis and Moire meet up again on equal footing and passions ignite. It was a little corny at times, but it wasn’t overwhelmingly so. I thought it was appropriate.

Moire and Alan’s relationship deepened and it was touching. You could see her struggling with her feelings as a new mother and it was heart-warming. They have an odd situation so it was sometimes humorous. I loved the quirkiness of that.

The introduction of the alien was fascinating and exciting. It was a little like Close Encounters of the Third Kind only the advantage was all on the humans side. There was enough of foreshadowing with the alien that left me wondering what’s in store for the next book between the it and Moire.

The only exceptions I have to make is in one action scene they seem to have gotten away a little too easily. They impersonated Toren personnel and I can’t help but wonder if that was just too easy. Also when Lorai was looking for Harrington, he just happened to be the one man she rescued. In a perfect world that might happen, but I don’t expect it in the real world. It was a little too predictable, but for the sake of fiction I can suspend belief and make believe.

Other then that I have no exceptions to make with this book. It was extremely well done and I can’t wait for the third installment. I only wish Sabrina Chase could write faster.

That sounds radical! It’s a good thing when you wish an author would write faster – plus this sounds pretty high energy stuff.

Looking forward to hearing what you think of the Koontz book… 😀

It is high energy. Perfect way to describe it.

It might take me awhile to get to the Koontz book. I only read it on my phone when I’m without my Kindle.

Oh my word – you must have excellent eyesight! Can’t imagine peering at my phone to read, no matter how good the book was. Kudos to you, that’s dedication!
