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.
