I really liked Avery in this one, I really liked how she took a chance just by being in the same area as the rest of the crew and more how she took a chance when first saw Weston again. With their past you would have thought she would have done everything she could to avoid him. After learning what really happened it was hard to not feel sorry for both Avery and Weston, both lost much when they lost their friend. I loved how working together Avery and Weston were able to face horrible things in ...more

Talk about a web of misunderstandings, miscommunications, bretrayls and in between all that a love story.

For this was definetly on the more angsty emotion side. However I still really enjoyed this story and it gave us an understanding of why Weston can sometimes be a right dick. I also really enjoyed Averys character too. While being very withdrawn (understandably) she was a very dynamic character .. All is not what it seems with her so don't be fooled because what may seem week at the start is

Out of the park. I loved it!!!! I was happy to find out that Weston wasn’t so cold as he came across at times. I knew he had more to him but to see it.... Ave was awesome how she grew from all that she went through. So many great things. 5 stars

Novak Raven (Harper's Mountains Book 4)

The love story of Weston and Avery. The raven shifters have a close society and there has been only one person who left it and the raven council want her son back. They plan to use Avery to trap Weston. Will Avery trap Weston or will he free her? Great story.

There are those extra special times when a reader simply connects with a book, a series or a group of series that all connect and create this alternative universe that is simply amazing… and so real. I believe we all have those characters that we simply “get” and look upon as virtual friends, the ones that we could see ourselves hanging out with, taking part in their lives. For me, that universe contains all of the series that make up the over-arching connecting series

Omg so good!!!

Just when you think your favorite author has already written the best book ever.... She does it again. Omg this book was fantastic!! So many easter eggs, so freaking good. I absolutely LOVED Beaston. Well Wes is battling that spot in my heart. I can't wait to read about Kane! Alpha I don't know how you do it, you give us a better story each and every time. I love these entire group.
I highly recommend to ANYONE to check out this series and T S Joyce!! She is one of my most beloved

I feel like I'd been waiting to read the story of the Novak Raven for a long time. TS manages to create a world so different from our own but filled with the possibility of the unexpected. Harper's Mountains is the next generation. The detail to the characters and their upbringing is unlike anything I've had the pleasure of reading before. The thought and heart put into the world she has created is captivating. I don't want to post any spoilers but I will say this story like her others will make ...more

I LOVED THIS!!! I loved reading about the children of the old character, but Wes stole my heart. I loved the Novak family from Beaston book and his son didn't disappoint.

Dear T.S. Joyce can you please think of writing books for all the other character children of your previous series?!

Novak Raven is the fourth book in the Harper’s Mountains Series and is Weston’s and Avery’s story. Weston is Aviana and Beaston’s raven boy from the Gray Back Series and Avery is a raven from the same group of ravens that Aviana escaped from. Weston and Avery were pen pals as children until a misunderstanding and betrayal ended their friendship. Truths are revealed and love is reunited in this book.

One of my favorites things about this author’s books is that the characters fall in love first an

I didn’t think I would care for this one as much as the others. They all seem bigger than life but Weston isn’t like that. In here we get to see another side of him. He is serious but smiles more and then in previous books.
Avery doesn’t know her up from her down when this books starts. She is running scared and just trying to figure out how to get by every day. She has girlish idealism’s of The Novak Raven. But soon learns there is no reality in them. So she needs to basically “man-up” and see

So worth reading...

I don't leave many reviews cause I'm lazy basically and that's just honest. This series though has really touched my heart. I love shifter ROMANCES! The trend on explicide sex scenes make me literally blush though I'm not a prude just in general not looking for that in a story. It's the absolute love, devotion of the soul mate bond shifters have that draws me in. I've been utterly blessed in life to have found my souls other half. We were only 13 when we met and we KNEW but he

I was pulled into the story right from the get go, that's were I stayed until I had read every single word written, all the while watching the story play out in my head, my own personal mini movie.

I have to say this was a very enjoyable read.
Weston and Avery deserved each other but I did dislike the other woman scenario.
Avery was an immensely interesting character, fragile, weak, yet so amazingly strong to allow herself to go through what she did to get evidence.
Unfortunately the two worst villains get off too easily but I am happy for how they ended up.
I hated the ravens for everything they have done and am not sure if they deserve any help but I suppose that is what a dictatorship/cult
Oh my god!

Really good read.

I loved this book out of this series, this felt actually good.

Avery was sweet, perfect name. Perfect. I thought her character was good, a little telling rather than showing shes dominant. I don't think we've seen dominant females since the tiger shifter in graybacks(I think it was Graybacks?) but she was still cool.

I have wanted to read Weston's since he was introduced. Weston is such an interesting character to me. I find psychic interesting. Not very sure I believe

Raven vs Raven

A beautiful raven shifter romance. Weston and Avery are fated to be together, no matter the obstacles in there way. No matter how much Weston fights it. But when the truth comes out. The fierceness that these two fall in love with solidifies their bond. The growth and strength of these characters are hard to not feel it. They make you laugh out load, cry, smile and keep you on the edge. Highly recommended. To fully enjoy these books please read the complete series but this book may

Where the last book in this series was all laugh and joy, this one was darker. Weston is tortured and Avery is broken and them getting together seems almost surreal. I found parts of it really hard to read, because the emotions are so raw it's like poking at an open wound.
Still and amazing story and a hard bumpy ride through this world, but with the amazingly sigh worthy heart warming ending I absolutely am addicted to.

Weston and Aviana

Wao! What a fantastic read. Just like his father's story this one is a keeper. Aviana is a crow shifter on the run from her people and the only place she can be truly safe is alongside Weston Novak. Weston is a also a crow shifter raced by predators. He, like his dad, has visions of the future. However he didn't see her coming and changing his life forever. Amazing read, packed with action, adventure and red hot romance. Highly recommended
