What a start!,

This review is from: Dawnthief: Chronicles of the Raven 1 (Paperback)
I'd placed my order for this novel before I read the review by buckelwal so you might understand my anxiety about having potentially wasting a few of my hard earned pounds. After a few pages, I knew I shouldn't have worried.
Fair enough, some of the writing is a little rough at times but this book is a great read. For me, the cliches were deliberately played and used to perfection, leaving the reader comfortable with the world and able to enjoy a truly exciting story.
The characters' banter is wonderful at times, really evoking old friends talking, the action is stunning and the plot, while it's not the most original, just drags you in because it's so tightly run.
And The Raven? I know they're described as mercenaries but they are more like a special forces unit, going into places, sorting things out and getting the hell out again.
If anything, this has taught me not to pay any attention to any reviews. If I had, I might have missed this. So I must give that advice to everyone. And that means ignore this review. So why did I write it? errr... Oh, just read the book and make your own mind up!
