    One thought on “The Curse of the Raven”

    1. What a great story With new characters adding even layers to the grand city of Vasyllia The Curse of the Raven is as gripping as its prequel, The Song of the Sirin I especially appreciated the depiction of the artisan s struggle to create beauty over commodity, even when it could cost his life It is a good thing that the next book in this series will be published this fall Otherwise, I would be all to anxious to read how all of the wonderful sub stories began in these two books weave themselves [...]

    2. It was such a thrill to return to Vasyllia in the Curse of the Raven It s a short read, with a different set of main characters, who I really enjoyed getting to know This novella has all the wonderful things I loved from The Song of the Sirin, and is a great read I loved the depth of the characters and ideas I think it s a testament to the strength of Nicholas Kotar s world building that this novella seems to be simultaneously both independent of and closely tied to the first novel Highly recomm [...]

    3. Nicholas Kotar set the bar high with his first book The Song of the Sirin Book two The Cruse of the Raven does not disappoint The tale begins with imagery which is pure mind candy conceptually, linguistically This opening image sets the tone for the entire novella and sets up the reader to not only read about, but experience the major theme of the story Kotar unveils this theme not only through the story, but through his own writing style in such a way that the message and the medium are married [...]

    4. Violent and greedy hunt for power and eternal life that does not stop before any obstacle.Llun is possibly the last true artist in Vasyllia, wchich might be strange considering he is a smith, but his creation possess beauty and artistry beyond expectations Even the smallest things coming from his hands are pieces of art Unfortunately, Aspidian and his companions took interest in the smith, not only because of his craft, but for the name connection to a mad prophet, and blood relations to the Son [...]

    5. The Curse of the Raven is a well written book by Nicholas Kotar First of, I haven t read the first book in this series Since this book is on the shorter side it made it a little difficult to get into it in the beginning, since the author didn t have a lot of time explaining things that may have been clearer if i would have read the first book of this series So the start for me was definitely a little difficult but once I was past that I enjoyed the book The concept of it is intriguing and the pl [...]

    6. A Worthy Sequel to The Song of the SirinLlun the artisan is commissioned by the evil force now ruling Vasyllia to create a simple item which, as it happens, is crucial to the hopes of those who labor to see their beloved city cleansed and restored The Raven s deception has taken on a new form, and the people are oppressed by those fellow humans who have been tortured to new depths of depravity.There is only one problem with this most enjoyable second entry in the Raven Son series it is TOO SHORT [...]

    7. This novella is a great follow up to Raven Son 1 the story tells what happens after the Raven takes over Vasyllia It reads like the perfect occupation novel except this time the occupation is by Evil himself The characters perfectly reflect the conflicts and confusion of persons who must live in an evil dominated society, yet remain true to themselves The Raven series combines the best of fantasy, epic stories and fairy tales, hero characters, and the battle between good and evil You will feel t [...]

    8. Unlikely heroes enter the fight in occupied VasylliaThe gorgeous, almost dreamy imagery and lyrical prose present in Song of the Sirin continue as events in Vasyllia take a decidedly darker turn Heroes slowly grown into heroism through a series of choices and trying adversities while villains are undeniably villainous, but also multifaceted might that tiny spark in the darkness mean a glimmer of hope for a brighter future and possible redemption for Vasyllia s denizens

    9. SurprisedThis second book in Kotar s series surprised me It picked up the story of the first book but not the characters They were present but only minimally The new people I met were just as fascinating and their tale moved me through the pages quickly My only regret is that when it was over I wanted .

    10. Received this Book for Free ARC Read am voluntarily reviewing Beautifully written terrific flow, intriguing story Leaves You anticipating the continuation of the Story Highly recommend

    11. I loved getting to know about what happened to Vasyllia next after the first book song of the siren ended This book is intriguing and really is an amazing read I especially love how strong Mirodara and Llun the smith is throughout the book.

    12. The struggle and triumph of suffering art during the Stalinist purges of Kievan Rus under the Mongols as it were An excellent book.

    13. Absolutely loved returning to Vasyllia The writing is lyrical and flows beautifully Llun the Smith is a fantastic character and I really enjoyed getting to know him and what part he has to play in the rebirth of Vasyllia He is really maybe one of the last true Vasylli I enjoyed finding out what our characters from Song of the Siren had been up to as well The only thing I was disappointed on was it was so short I hate taking off one star but gosh dang it, I just wanted
