I read the book but I was really disappointed with its ending.I just hope that the author will take this into account and rectify it

Overall, I rate Raven's Peak 4 out of 4 stars.
The writer always surprises you with the events. The story can be classified perfectly as suspense. I couldn't find any grammatical or spelling mistakes.

I have also reviewed it, and gave it a 3 out of 4 stars. It is, for as most of you have already said, action packed and a fast paced book. Unfortunately the multitude of plot twists and intertwining of sub-characters tended to pull me out of the story where I had trouble connecting to one or two characters specifically as I normally do in a novel. Certain decisions, or lack here of, made by the protagonists definitely hindered the overall outcome of the novel. In whole, the novel was a good pleasure read but I feel there were some issues that the author could have addressed further to make it even more successful.

I agree, I thought the ending could have been more satisfying. Hopefully the next books will fill in what was missing!

I loved it, it was well written and Arthur is a mysterious character, can't wait to hear more about him. It has a strong female character which I also applaud. I gave it 4 out of 4 stars.

I gave it a 3 out of 4 stars because as much as it was fast paced and action packed the world building wasn't that great. It was bits and pieces of information here and there instead of a clear explanations. Abigail's explanations often left me with more questions than answers just like Haatim.

I gave it a 4 out 4 because I really enjoyed reading it. I found the ending very well written, furnishing me with some answers but maintaining a level of anticipation for the following book. I liked that I could not predict the turns that were going to occur. I found it a great read.

I would give it a 3 out of 4 stars. I was an interesting read. I did not really like the ending of the book 1 but, after reading all three books it all adds up.
The overall characters of Abigail and Haatim were good. But I really loved Arthur's character. He had a mystery to it....

I rated it a 3 out of 4 stars. I thought the plot was interesting and would continue reading the series, once I'm done with other books. The prologue sucked me right into the story and I read it really fast, I couldn't put it down. But I would have liked more of a backstory for Haatim and Abigail. We get those snippets, but I would have related to the characters more if I had known more about them.

I rated the book 4 out of 4. I loved everything about it starting with the amazing prologue. I wanted to know more about the characters which has prompted me to read the full series and I haven't been disappointed. Great storyline - I particularly liked the fact that it was easy to read and follow the plot - and I congratulate the author for an amazing series

It is true that it was a enjoyable and thrilling reading the Raven's Peak. It is just that there are plot holes that takes away my pleasure in reading it.

I don't know why there's almost no people that noticed it.

Anyways, I would give it a 3 out of 4 stars since the prologue is one of the best that I've read recently.

I gave it 2 stars out of 4. I thought the writing relied a bit too much on telling rather than showing, and could be quite repetitive. Also, I wasn't a big fan of the way the horror elements were constructed in that I didn't see a lot of tension and didn't get a sense of terror. I liked the characters and the story, though.

Overall it was an enjoyable read. I liked Abigail the most but as you said I found it hard to connect with any character. The demons were too chatty and that made me lose my interest a bit. I gave it 3 out of 4 stars and I would love to read the entire trilogy^^.

I wasn't so sure when I started reading the book. I don't really like reading about demons and other dark things but I ended up enjoying the book. I rate it 4 out of 4. Please read my review and tell me what you think.
No idea is a bad idea.
