What were your favorite and least favorite aspect(s) of Raven's Peak? How could your least favorite part(s) improve in order for you to have enjoyed the story even more?


I wanted to know more of Arthur's back story. I enjoyed the beginning of the book very much but was frustrated with questions about why Arthur was in jail and why he castigated himself so terribly. Also, it is mentioned several times how Abigail had something to do with Arthur's incarceration. Is there another book out there in which this part of the story is found? It seems like this was mentioned in another thread?

I enjoy the openning of each book because Lincoln uses powerful sayings. I also enjoyed the prologues because each prologue gives another twist to the story.

I liked this response and agree.

Haha, yeah sometimes Haatim was a little frustrating.

Least Favorite: I thought that Abigail and Haatim were pretty flat characters overall. I just couldn't find much about them that seemed really believable. Yeah, they did all the surface-level things that made sense, but it didn't feel like it went any deeper than that.

I agree with everything that CarrieMe said. Also, the parts where the demon was taking over the town (especially with the little boy) were really well done. Those scenes were legitimately creepy.


Indeed! The scene with the boy was really well done. It gave me the chills as well.


I'm glad that at least a few others felt the same way I did! And I definitely agree about the boy being well done. I always feel like kids and dolls are the most surefire ways to creep me out.

I think that the prologue was my least favorite part. Don't get me wrong, it drew me in once Arthur got to the field, but before that I was losing interest. After that I was hooked. I didn't mind that it took a while to get to Raven's Peak. Anticipation makes you want to get there, but the journey makes the destination worthwhile. I definitely want to read the next book. I liked Haatim, but Abigail's reluctance to talk about anything made her difficult to like, and Frieda just rubbed me the wrong way (kudos for character development there).

My favorite part was the introduction to Raven's Peak. My least favorite was some parts of the plot and the ending to book one.

So far my favourite parts were the beginning prologue with Arthur, and the creepy scenes such as the woods and the cabin and the town of Raven's peak. My least favourite would maybe be struggling to connect with the characters til over halfway through the book, some more back story or "fleshing out" earlier on might have helped.

I agree about using kids and dolls are easiest ways to creep me out, too. Chuckie? I can't...I tried and it's just way too creepy. I'm getting the shivers just thinking about this. :shock:

I enjoyed the old town of Ravens Peak. I wish the author had drawn that out more. Developed the scene and had more actin taking place there. So that was my most and least favorite art the same time.
I agree! Raven's Peak old town can be made more terrifying and this should have been made part of the prologue with Arthur who is the most interesting part of the story.

In the story, I loved all the action scenes and the element of mystery.

My favorite aspect of the book was Arthur and wondering if Abigail was going to get Arthur back.

I liked the setting, I think the Author did really well in the terms of explaining things. I liked Arthur's character, it was intriguing. I'm not sure is this is a problem only I faced, but the story line seemed quite predictable in some places. I like a story that keeps me guessing.

I agree. There were some parts that I kind of knew what was going to happen. It was still entertaining though.

I am interested in Arthur (Reverend) character and I would like to know more about him. I really apreciate scenes where the demon possessed the small boy and where he influenced others by few words or only by a sight. It was creepy. I read them at night and I was very scared.

But I don´t like action scenes in this book and predictability of the plot. I also don´t like author´s urge to explain everything. When I started to be afraid of something, he explained it and my fear faded. I think that the fear of unknown and hopelessness would be better and there could be still space for good managed action.
