She is Unbreakable Glass.
She is Stronger than they know.
She has a plan.
She is Ravena.
In the land of lost magic and scarred souls, a land ruled by a cruel Queen with love for no one, Ravena was born. Her life did not start, in truth, until the day her best friend helped her kill the vicious mate forced upon her.
Surrounded by three tattered mates, she must find a way to bring them together and form some semblance of a family or face the Queen’s wrath and removal from the devil she knows. There are horrors in Talamh na Sithe that would kill for one of The Eight and she cannot allow that to happen.
She’s paid her dues.
Ravena knows there is a way through the storm of loss, betrayal, and pain for all of them, she just needs to find it because storms can’t last forever and if flowers can bloom in this blood-soaked land, so can love.
***Ravena is a stand-alone, Dark Romance/ Reverse Harem with various elements that some readers may find triggering. Although there is a HEA, there is no end that does not bring with it some amount of darkness. 18 and over.***
*I received this book free from the author.*
Book one in the Eight series was Airmed and I would suggest reading it first. In it you learn a little about each of the eight girls and it brings a side to them you wouldn’t get otherwise.
Ravena wasn’t one of the lucky girls. She got sent to live with four brothers. The eldest wasn’t nice at all and that’s putting it mildly. He dominated the house with an iron fist and no one who lived within those walls escaped his wrath, not even his brothers, so when he dies of a ‘heart condition’ no one shed a tear.
Finn, Lochlann, and Rory had many years more than Ravena did of the pain that house held, but if she could put it behind her then so could they. One by one they realize the true meaning of love and family.
“I know she hates me. She is the first woman I ever slept with and she hates my guts. I can’t help but love her.”
Ravena is another intriguing book from Sharilyn Skye. It’s does have some intense sexual scenes, the ones from their memories regarding Rowan are not always consensual. But the ones that are….are a mixture of hot and sweet. There’s also betrayal, murder, and conspiracy. I cannot wait to see whose book is next.
Honestly, I’m torn between wanting to know about the eight and reading each of their books and seeing how they tie together with the Healer series. All I do know is that it’s going to be one hell of journey.
