It kept me hooked from page one. While aimed at a teen/young adult audience, it makes an incredible read for any fantasy-lover, regardless of age. Eerie, thrilling and mind-bending [...] spectacular! * Fallen Star Stories Blog *
The storyline is amazing, I really loved how all the characters are so different from each other, but without all of them the story would not be as good as it is. -- Reader, Age 12 * Toppsta *
I really loved The Good Hawk, and I think (with the addition of Sigrid) I love The Broken Raven even more! The plot was so gripping, and I love the way that each chapter is unique to the character whose POV it is from. [...] I can't recommend it enough! -- Reader, Age 13 * Toppsta *
The story is exciting and full of adventure and journeys which all link up. There's personal battles, actual battles and good against evil. I'd recommend it for ages 11/12 up - I can't wait for the next one! -- Reader, Age 11 * Toppsta *
