Selene Ravenwood, once the heir to House Ravenwood, is now an exile. On the run and free of her family's destiny, Selene hopes to find the real reason her family was given the gift of dreamwalking. But first, she must adapt to her new role as wife to Lord Damien Maris, the man she was originally assigned to kill.
While adjusting to her marriage and her home in the north, her power over dreams begins to grow. As the strongest dreamwalker to exist in ages, her expanding power attracts not only nightmares but the attention of the Dark Lady herself.
With a war looming on the horizon and a wicked being after her gift, Selene is faced with a choice: accept the Dark Lady's offer or search out the one who gave her the gift of dreamwalking. One path offers power, the other freedom. But time is running out, and if she doesn't choose soon, her decision will be made for her.
WOW. Rarely does a second novel live up to the expectations of an amazing debut novel, but I have to say, Flight of the Raven is a smashing success! Following on the heels of Mark of the Raven, where Lady Selene made a shocking decision to align herself with Lord Damien, this sequel follows Lady Selene as she enters into a new phase of her life as wife to Lord Damien, whose kingdom is perceived an enemy to House Ravenwood. Lady Selene is still uncertain why his kingdom is such a threat and how it all ties into her family's gift of dreamwalking. She still cannot reason the purpose behind the dreamwalking gift. Her immediate ancestors, even her mother, had been utilizing the gift in a cruel and evil way - was it possible the gift can be used for good?
As Lady Selene tries to dig deeper into the history of her gift, it is clear that the origins of it have been keep shrouded in mystery. Ancient tomes of knowledge shed hardly any light on the matter, and she begins having horrid nightmares of being chased by the Dark Lady. She can't help but wonder: Will the darkness be something she can escape? Or is it her destiny? And what of Lord Damien? Will he yet still be harmed by her and her gift? Will the affection that begins to grow between them be quickly extinguished?
The saddest thing about this book was that it had to come to an end...I literally devoured each and every page. I will be counting down the days to when the third book comes out in February 2020. Until then, I will most likely be re-reading the first two novels once or twice...
