Preview: Prince of Ravens by Richard Baker

Having not read the previous Jack Ravenwild book, City of Ravens, I was not sure what to expect from Prince of Ravens, but being a die-hard fantasy fiction fan, I was excited to embark on a new journey with the hopes of finding a story that would connect with me as a reader – that would spark emotions, and not allow me to stop reading until I found out what happened next.

To that point, Thank You, Richard Baker, for introducing me to the world of Jack Ravenwild!

Baker does an excellent job of connecting the reader with the main characters quickly, and giving those characters a sense of humanism that is difficult for all but true masters of their craft to portray. The storyline keeps the book interesting throughout, with just the right amount of detail here and there to make you feel as though you are part of Jack’s world.

My only complaint is that the book is so easy to read, that I found myself flying through the pages, and it almost felt as though it was over before it started. Seeing that it has been 12 years since the release of the previous Jack Ravenwild book, I truly hope Baker decides to continue this storyline sooner rather than later.

Rating: ★★★★½
