I really like Abigail's character. She is a strong female, not afraid to go for whatever she wants. Although Arthur seems like an interesting character, he is a very typical male lead in a story. A strong lead male who fights to save his family, and puts a hurting on anyone who is trying to hurt him or his family. That type of role I admire, but I always find it refreshing to have a story told from a different lead role.

I love Abigail. She is a character of strength and perseverance. She keeps trying to find her adoptive father, Arthur, even though the Council doesn't want her too. She has survived a bad childhood but didn't let it turn bad.

I find something interesting on every main characters of the book. Was Arthur possessed by demon (or angel?)? What supernatural abilities are hiding deep inside Haatim (due to his duel with demon possessed boy) and Abigail (due to the demon and then Hunters choose her)? If I could choose I would like to read something from the past of the characters instead of their future.

The most interesting is probably Arthur for me. But I don´t want to play his role in the story and I don´t even know someone like him in reality.

Raven's Peak is full of interesting and memorable characters. I really love Abigail, she' an amazing strong woman, determined and confident in making decisions. But I'm most interested with Arthur and Haatim's father. Both were mysterious and I'm curious about them, this is also one of the reasons that excites me to read the next book.

I like Arthur's character but Abigail was definitely my favorite. It's rare to find a female protagonist who is truly fearless and faces the world head-on.

I find Mary interesting. She's strong, bold. A queen to be followed.

Did you finish the book yet? I am curious if you still maintain your favorite character or did you find another interesting character in the story?

I thought Arthur was an interesting character. I am curious to know what happens to him. He had an intriguing past and was a strong character that makes me want to know more about him. I didn't love Haatim though. He seemed really helpless which was frustrating. He got his degree in theology, he should be a little more understanding about what he's up against.

Abigail would be the character of choice for me. I don't want to be her, but she is like many of the characters I have previously written. Abigail reminds me of myself and how I would deal with things if that world were real. I don't think I could adhere to laws that prohibit me from being who I truly was. I would die to try to save the person that mattered most to me. Abigail resonates with women because she is strong willed and a very strong personality. She is what a lot of women cannot be and she gives them hope.

I thought Haatim was a good character. He was a refreshing splash of normal thrown in the middle of chaos. I felt like he could have been a lot angrier having had his life threatened so many times, but he had obviously checked out which was believable.

I likes each and every one. I was well pleased with the development of characters. Each had a distinct personality and story.

Like many have already written, the Reverend was my favorite character. He is so deep and mysterious, and the readers don't really know what he has done in his past to deserve his future, but we are very well guaranteed that it was something fantastic. I hope we will be able to see him more in further novels.

I liked Haatim. At first he was so useless but at the end he was sticking it to his father, standing up to demons and realizing that he was just mad at himself over his sisters death. He matured and it will be interesting to see how his character is in the next novel.

Definitely The Reverend...very mysterious! I hope the future books give us more of a background on all of the characters! That was the one thing I think the book lacked, I like more depth in my characters!
