This book was definitely not what I expected. The story started a bit slow for me but once it picked up I was unable to put it down. In a nutshell, Oskar is a witch (not to be confused with a wizard) set on a path to reverse a curse caused by his uncle wrong-doings. While on his mission, he meets Mylla, a shy, quiet maid that seems to know more than what she lets on.
I really liked the world the author created. Oskar is part of a coven of witches but because of his family history he’s not

He knows exactly when and how he will die, but Oskar Quigley thinks he knows how to defeat his great uncle, the witch gone bad who caused the death curse, there just one problem he never accounted for… another victim. She has been his servant for as long as she can remember and Mylla’s memories can be trusted but she needs to warn Oskar that of the bad things that happen only she can’t talk to him.

The first book in the ‘Coven of the Raven’ series is a stunning, original story that is full of

I just loved this book. It was so well-written that it captured my mind and I was dragged along for the ride. Once I started reading I could not put it down until I read the last page.

Deceptively good. Not what I expected at all

I think the backcover blurb was really confusing and might have been offputting to paranormal romance readers such as myself. But it was an interesting read.

Loved the mystery and the tension. I felt so bad for the Mylla. To live for almost a century as worse than a slave, a doll with no control over even your own thoughts or memories is about the worst thing I could think of. I'm happy she was rescued by Oskar (in a very unique way).

Quick and easy read

This book was so great. Oskar's family had been cursed. He wasn't ready to go just yet. He wanted to break the curse. Mylla was trapped by magic. Once Oskar stepped foot into the cursed mansion, she was finally able to see what was going on. Together they fought against dark magic and won. This was so great I could not put it down.

Another quietly brilliant book. A nice pace of delivery with enough background to make the story rounded without dragging on and on.
The characters are believable, the bad guy could maybe have had his background fleshed out a bit more but it didn't detract from anything. I didn't like him but he didn't make me want to punch him like others I've read lol.
Really enjoyed it.

Oskar and Mylla both complete each other. Oskar has only lived his life knowing that he would die to a curse. Mylla know something is wrong but she can never grasp it due to an evil keeping her bound. These two will work together to do anything they can to free each other from darkness.

The first book in the Coven of the Raven series and I know I want to read the next book, what a story it kept me turning pages. Oskar Quigley and Mylla have a lot to overcome to get their happy ending especially the black death magic of Thomas'.

I liked this a lot... cursed hero, ensorcelled heroine, creepy bad guy, a goddess and magic. Not sure were this is going as a series since the hero is off on his own 'quest' with no back up, but I will be checking out the next.

Enjoyable

Love this author’s distinct style. She manages to stay fresh and magical at the same time. Good and bad witches and a little bit of love to save the day made this an easy read.
