Falling in love shouldn’t be dangerous…

Sixteen year old Ravyn Creed has always known she was different. But even she doesn’t know the secrets of her birth… secrets that should have remained hidden. Secrets that could kill her.

On a night meant for fun—for music and dancing and boys—darkness enters her world and nothing will be the same again. With both Heaven and Hell after her, will the mysterious Zeke Lancaster be the one to save her? Or will she find the strength to save herself…

Zeke Lancaster. Demon. Head of his clan. And the only one who can right a wrong done to his family, a wrong that tears at him night and day. Chance brings him to the small town of Kings Crossing but will it be fate that let's him leave? As the one person at the center of a firestorm fights to survive, he'll have to decide which side of the fence he will sit. Will he do as he must or do as he wants...

Ravyn's Fall is one of those stories where it's a bit predictable, and nothing quite WOW about it, but will keep you so glued to the pages you won't be able to put it down.

The minute I began reading Ravyn’s Fall it was like Boom! Boom! Boom! One thing after another and the story does not slow down once. I loved this! Even though I sort of knew where the story was going, and how things would play out, I found myself very entertained and did not want to stop reading. Julie Blackstone had my full attention until the very end.

My biggest issue with this book though, was that I could not seem to connect with Zeke and Ravyn’s relationship. I did not feel any type of connection between the two and when I did it was very short lived. I would have liked a lot more emotion and development between the two. Also, I am not a big fan of the main female character putting herself in danger just about every chapter. Other than this, Blackstone has put together a good story. I hope there is a sequel because I would like to read it and continue following the characters, and the world Ravyn has gotten sucked into.

I enjoyed reading this book. 

3.5 out of 5 Stars!
