Raven’s Peak by Lincoln Cole is a C/T/M/H novel that grasps the reader’s attention as soon as the first page is turned. The multiple award-winning author whose writing esteem was lit at a young age, takes the reader through a brilliantly weaved narrative that concludes as the town of Raven’s Peak is salvaged. In this action packed page-turner, Abigail Dressler finds herself in the Council’s watch list after losing their trust and confidence. As it is, the Council can’t trust Abigail with anything important because they believe she was involved in Arthur’s disappearance. The story takes a new turn when Abigail meets Haatim, a fresh theological graduate in his mid-twenties whom she discovers is also connected to the Council.

While Abigail is scrutinizing the activities of a secret society called the ninth circle, George,(An agent of the society) meets Haatim and gives him a job offer to spy on her. Haatim subsequently finds himself running for his dear life, as a demon chases him after George’s plan backfires. Abigail turns out to be his savior and drags him along to the backwater town of Raven’s Peak where cynical events have been reported. Working from the background is Frieda, who hasn’t given up on Abigail and believes she is the cone through which to save Raven’s Peak. Will the two succeed in bringing the town to normalcy?

The narrative is quite captivating, with a brilliant plot and character development. The good vs evil themes are also clearly portrayed from the start to the end of this fast-paced novel. I like how the author invests on character a buildup that leaves the reader fully engrossed as the protagonists team up to make the demons’ life excruciating. Even in terrifying situations, Cole depicts Abigail as a whiz-kid and the heroin who puts her life in an uncalled-for circumstances to protect the lives of many who may not be aware that she exists.

This novel is woven over different plot sequences, with each plot equipped to infiltrate the reader’s thoughts allowing little breathing space as the call to curtail evil accelerates. The story is so intriguing that I had to finish it in less than a day and was left yearning for more.

This book is the first in the World on Fire series and ends on a cliff-hanger which to me, is a signal to enter into the next book. However, I encountered some misplaced words all through the book, which were somewhat a threat to my reading speed. I could have given this book 3.5 stars if it were possible, but I have to award it 3 out of 4 stars. I recommend this book to readers who love supernatural thrillers. However, the presence of ghastly scenes and the use of strong language won’t permit my recommendation to young readers or any person who finds this to be disturbing.

I think the storyline of Raven’s Peak by Lincoln Cole is very interesting. I also think the character of Haatim is oddly remarkable.
