Book Review: Raven Rise

Raven Rise
Raven Rise by D.J. MacHale

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book tore me into tiny pieces, stomped on my heart, and threw me into this imaginative and wild fantasy world. I can never figure out if the genre is sci-fi or fantasy or time travel. This series is its own thing!

Bobby Pendragon and his friends are desperately fighting a losing war against the evil Saint Dane, and when Saint Dane’s plans are revealed, there is nothing they can do to stop the violence that is unleashed throughout the universe of Halla. The 10 territories are on a collision course called the Convergence, and Saint Dane is pulling those puppet strings in ways Bobby can’t comprehend.

There’s mystery and drama throughout the story. Suspense and action and mind-blowing plot twists! Characters are pushed to their limits, and I was so in awe of all these characters story arcs. They feel like real people!

I can’t help but adore Bobby. He’s such a hilarious, loyal, sweet, strong, and inspiring person. I just love seeing him take action and pull down barriers. He’s the perfect main character to push the story forward.

The writing is excellent! It pulls you into the story, and I read 200 pages without realizing it.
