First Thought when Finished: Raven Cursed by Faith Hunter was kick ass with characters I love. If the romance wasn’t there it would be darn near perfect (I am not a fan of any of the love interests in this series).
Story Thoughts: I felt for Jane the whole book. Both her and Beast love Molly’s kids something fierce and for them to end up in the middle of something is just not good. Also with the things going on with Molly’s sister (Evie—hate her) things are just not at the best for these two besties. That is why I love this series: it reads real. Hard to explain that but things don’t always work out perfectly. There are strains, hardships, tough decisions,and mistakes. Faith Hunter is not afraid to go down a rabbit hole and come up gopher hole. Jane rolls with the punches but carries a lot of guilt. Some she should and other bits I wish she would get rid of. However, she wouldn’t be Jane without it! There is a whole lot of story going on in Raven Cursed and both storylines come together in a rather unusual way that will keep you on your toes.
Character Thoughts: They all rock! <—is that enough? It is going to have to be because my only other thought is: she can ditch all the boys because to me they both suck. They aren’t worthy of Jane. Now I have no problem with Beast having fun with them but Jane deserves better 🙂
Narrated By Khristine Hvam / Length: 15 hrs and 8 mins
Khristine Hvam is one of the best in the business. She pulls of Faith and Beast perfectly. Everyone should try this series in audio!
Final Thoughts: I am trying to pace myself because I am almost caught up. Then I would have to wait. That would slay me.
