Raven’s Call (Crimson #0.5) by Amos Cassidy – Bout of Books 14 Review

RavensCallHe came from darkness, lifted from the bowels of despair, saved by hope, but who will save him now?
Raven is a survivor, a fighter, but not a lot of people know that. He keeps his past hidden, even from himself. His dirty little secret, the only secret, or so he believes…
When Raven and his friends are summoned to The Culling, it seems like a dream come true. Hosted by the Alpha at his famous Retreat, The Culling, an event to select the werewolves that will take on the role of Active Pack and protect the civilian wolves, is a gruelling test of skill. As Raven, Roman, Damon and Kris make the journey to Wales, the days ahead seem filled with possibility. But the stakes are much higher than any of them could have imagined. A shadow stalks The Retreat, a dark assassin with an unholy mission, a mission that will put Raven and his friends directly in the line of fire.
As the truth of his inceptions puts Raven on a supernatural hit list, a choice must be made, one that could change Raven’s life forever.
When the time comes, will Raven make the right call?

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1Oh Raven… yes, at the expense of feeling the wrath of others who have claimed him as their own, I am totally in love with this guy. I liked him before, but getting his back story… especially the beginning… totally made me team Raven all the way.

As for Amos Cassidy? They have the irritating talent of making their books impossible to review. They throw so many twists and turns in their stories that I don’t know where to start, much less continue, without giving something away. And don’t even get me started on the cliff hanger. *glares at evil authors*

Raven wasn’t the only character that got a POV in Raven’s Call. Even though the focus was Raven, readers were also given time with Roman, Damon and Kris. I loved getting to know them all better, but Raven is the one who broke me.

This was my second reading of Raven’s Call. It’s short so reading it twice wasn’t a huge deal, but worth mentioning because it was necessary and I’ll probably be reading it again. Short or not, there is a lot packed within those pages. There’s a lot of history, but there’s also a lot of foreshadowing. Some of it I remembered, but some of it I had forgotten and some of it I didn’t realize was as important as it was until… See… they’re EVIL!

If you haven’t read the Crimson series yet, Raven’s Call would be a good place to start. It’s short, and gives you just a hint of the torment that this talented duo is capable of. Plus, the final book in the series, Crimson Chaos is coming soon.
