Apollo’s Raven transports you to a world where kingdoms are clashing and on the brink of war. Tensions are running high when negotiations are struck to keep hostages. Marcellus is being held with the Celtics when a warrior princess is charged to be his escort. A forbidden love blossoms causing a landslide of traitors and evil plots to run their course. Catrin and Marcellus have to work together to stop a glooming war between their homelands.
Linnea Tanner has weaved an enchanting story of war, magic, and forbidden love. This book is hard to stop reading with its never-ending action. It keeps you hanging on to every word. The research that Linnea Tanner puts into her work shines through in her words. It is easy to imagine the world in which she describes. The historical facts that are included into the story make a delightful edition as well.
I give this book a rating of 4 out of 4 stars. This is the kind of book I feel as if I could just keep endlessly reading because it is so well written. I never wanted to put the book down. The only thing that I was left wanting was, more. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fiction, romance, or action books.
My favorite thing about Apollo’s Raven is the plots continuous twists and turns. You cannot begin to guess which way Linnea Tanner will go with the book. Just when you think you have the book all figured out, you are sure to be wrong. Not being able to figure out the ending to this book is part of what keeps you so entranced and left wanting for more. I also love how deeply you get to know the characters. Linnea Tanner takes you into the characters back stories. You feel as if you have personally known these characters all your life and would fight side by side with them.
My least favorite part of this book is that the ending came to soon. I wish this book were longer, like I had previously mentioned I could have continued reading this book indefinitely. Which I will continue to do as the series develops. There are a couple of chapters included to the sequel following the conclusion of the book. There are very few errors that can be found in this book, some could even be considered nit picking. The book flows by so smoothly it is hard to notice the minimal errors.
