Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog! How are you all doing? I hope that you’re all safe out there.
Today is my stop in the FFBC Blog tour and I have a review for you guys. Thanks to the author for sending me an electronic review copy of this fantastic book!
And now without further ado, let’s start with the post.
Four fates collide in this avian-inspired, epic fantasy retelling of Tristan and Isolde perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, Sabaa Tahir, and Leigh Bardugo!
A princess longing to be free…
On the dawn of her courtship trials, Princess Lyana Aethionus knows she should be focused on winning her perfect mate, yet her thoughts wander to the open sky waiting at the edge of her floating kingdom. One final adventure calls. Upon fleeing the palace, the last thing she expects to find is a raven prince locked in a death match with a dragon.
A bastard aching to belong…
Reviled son of a dead king, Rafe would do anything for his beloved half-brother, Prince Lysander Taetanus, including posing as him in the upcoming courtship trials. When a dragon interrupts their secret exchange, he orders his studious sibling to run. After suffering a fatal blow, Rafe is saved by a beautiful dove who possesses forbidden magic, just like him.
Fate brought them together, now destiny will tear them apart…
Unknown to the world above, on the foggy sea ten thousand feet below, a young king fights a forgotten war. He believes Lyana is the queen prophesied to save the world, and with the help of his favored spy, hidden deep in the highest ranks of the dove royal house, he will stop at nothing to have her.
Three shocking betrayals. Two star-crossed lovers. One unforgettable journey. If you like fierce heroines, brooding heroes, forbidden romance, and action-packed magical adventures with twists you’ll never see coming, don’t miss The Raven and the Dove!Add the book to your Goodreads to-read shelf!

So first of all, I will start with something I always do: the writing style. The Raven and the Dove was beautifully written. I immediately had the whole thing in my head. How the world looks like, how the wings of the main characters looked like and so on. It kind of felt like watching a tv show. I honestly can’t complain about that. Now I need a TV show of the book but hey maybe somebody will produce The Raven and the Dove. A girl can always dream, right?
This book is also written in a 3rd person point of view. Which is actually very helpful to the reader as we get to know more about our characters. At the beginning of every chapter, the name of the person is also written down. I, personally, like the third point of view writing in fantasy books. It’s a great way to discover more about the world-building, the people and so on.
Like I already mentioned in the beginning when I wrote about the writing style I also loved the world-building. It was something unique, something that reminded me a lot of ACOTAR and Throne of Glass which are my favourite series ever.
This is an amazing start to a new series and I can’t wait to read more of the series.
