REVIEW BY DEBBIE - Lord of Ravens (Inheritance #3) by Amelia Faulkner
Lord of Ravens (Inheritance Book 3) - Amelia Faulkner

Lover. Predator. Killer.

Laurence Riley’s inheritance comes with a price - one he's not at all sure he can pay. When his urge to hunt grows out of control, he sends a desperate prayer to his ancestor for guidance. But he never expected that Herne the Hunter would answer.

Scion. Target. Victim.

There are horrors lurking in Quentin d’Arcy’s past, but they won’t hide there forever. Something ancient is coming to take him home: a creature of nightmare who feasts on the flesh of children. When the choice is between his own life and the lives of innocents, there is no choice at all.

Honesty is the worst policy.

A legendary horror comes to San Diego, but it’s merely an emissary. Laurence has seen the real monster, and it’s a darkness which will destroy everything he loves – especially if Quentin ever finds out what it did to him as a child.

It’s down to Laurence to prepare for war against a force which far outmatches him. The enemy has the most powerful weapon of all at his disposal, and if they’re to stand a chance, Laurence must master the same power.

He must learn magic.

Lord of Ravens is the third book in the Rainbow Award winning Inheritance series and contains mature themes and events which may be distressing to some readers. It has a moderate heat rating and an HFN ending.

oh my freaking word!!!
Lord of Ravens (Inheritance Book 3) - Amelia Faulkner
I'm not gonna write a blurby bit, just gonna jump straight in with this one!
 
You really REALLY should read Jack of Thorns, book one and Knight of Flames before this one. You WILL need it. I wrote in my review for book two, Knight of Flames that Quentin had much to tell about his upbringing. I quote from that review "I think Quentin has buried it deep, and it will take some time for Faulkner to dig it out of him. When we finally get it all, its gonna be bad, I know it is. Real bad. We have little hints, reactions, comments, here that make you think. But I'm not thinking too hard to put it together, not yet, because I have a feel I'm gonna be so terribly wrong." And by Goddess, it is bad. I strongly suggest you brace yourself for Chapter Thirteen. I'm not going to go into detail, save this. I am certain, absolutely dead CERTAIN that there is more to come, and it will be worse, far worse.
 
In other news! Quentin and Laurence's relationship continues to grow, in all ways, physically especially. I am thoroughly enjoying watching Quentin come out of himself with Laurence. For all of Quentin's properness, he has a dirty heart!
 
I must mention AGAIN the profound differences between Quen and Laurence, and how beautifully they are portrayed here. Faulkner tells their story in THEIR words, so the differences are marked; in words, thoughts and actions. And I do so love it!!
 
Quentin's father turns up, briefly, to try to get Quentin to return to England, and he sends something to hurry him along, causing problems for the children.
 
Herne plays a greater part here too, in teaching Laurence about his gifts. And that deal Laurence made with Morgan, that three parter?? It's gonna come back to bite him on the ass, I know it is!
 
There is, again, an epilogue that leave you with questions, questions, questions. But not from Freddy this time. Someone else. Someone who, ordinarily, I wouldn't mind hearing from, but after Chapter Thirteen?? I don't wanna, no ma'am, I really don't!
 
When you stay up til 2am in the morning just to finish a book, and you have to be at work at 8am, it can only get...
 
5 stars.

another bloody great read!
Knight of Flames (Inheritance) (Volume 2) - Amelia Faulkner
Jack of Thorns (Inheritance) (Volume 1) - Amelia Faulkner
I was gifted my copy of this book direct from the author, I thank Ms Faulkner for that!
 
Quentin and Laurence are getting on with their lives after dealing with Jack, getting to know one another, dating. First, Quentin meets Kane, who wants to build a better life for psychics, and then Quentin's twin brother, Freddy, turns up. Both Quentin and Laurence's powers are growing, ever more revealing what they can do. They need to get to the bottom of what Kane and Freddy really are up to, while still developing their relationship.
 
Book two, and you NEED to read book one, Jack of Thorns, before you embark on this one. It will not only give you a better understanding of what these two men went through, but also because I SAID SO! And its a five star read, so read book one.
 
Quentin has been teaching himself how to control his powers, using methods taught by Laurence. But he is keeping something from Laurence, and it is revealed spectacularly here. OH! We know, of course we do, but Laurence doesn't, and the others involved don't. And I loved that its kept from everyone til that point. We get more of Quentin and his background, his upbringing, but still, I don't think we have it all. I think there is much MUCH more to come. I think Quentin has buried it deep, and it will take some time for Faulkner to dig it out of him. When we finally get it all, its gonna be bad, I know it is. Real bad. We have little hints, reactions, comments, here that make you think. But I'm not thinking too hard to put it together, not yet, because I have a feel I'm gonna be so terribly wrong.
 
Quen and Laurence's relationship, both emotional and physical, continues to grow. Slowly, steadily, but still growing. Still fairly low on the steam range, but its growing, getting hotter, along with Quentin's powers. Its so beautifully written, how they are growing into their relationship, so very beautifully put across from both man's point of view.
 
It doesn't quite carry the cliff hanger that book one does, but it does carry a very intriguing epilogue told from Freddy's point of view. Makes you ask questions, questions and more questions. Can't wait to find out just what he is up to, and just what it is he can do!
 
Little bit sexier, but so much more deadlier than book one, I thought. Still, it gets...
 
5 stars

bloody freaking amazin!
Jack of Thorns (Inheritance) (Volume 1) - Amelia Faulkner
I was gifted my copy of this book, direct from the author, and I so thank Ms Faulkner for that gift!!
 
SO!
 
I sat down to read a couple of chapters of this book, before I had to do the boring stuff that gets in the way of reading, you know the stuff, chores, laundry, the bloody dayjob. I sat down at 9am.....
 
AND
DID
NOT
MOVE
....til 12.20pm, book finished, my throwing a strop because I also have book two to read and that bloody dayjob had a time stamp I needed to meet!! I literally lost myself in Faulkner's world, in the world of Laurence and Quentin.
 
I freaking loved this book!!
 
Laurence knows what he is, a drug addict, and he is trying, he really is. He works with his mum, and uses his power to grow the plants and flowers they sell. His mother has power too, she sees flashes of the future.
 
Quentin is, quite possibly, the most unique character I have EVER come across. He is just , OH!! He's just Quentin. We don't get his full story right away, and I'm sure there is much more to come that is much more painful to read, than we have already. I look forward to getting more into Quentin's mind, and what makes him tick. He is such a joy to read, even if a little...quirky!
 
What I was particularly impressed with was the totally and utterly brilliant way Faulkner defined each character. They have, quite obviously, been brought up in different cultures, worlds, classes and teachings. And those differences come across, not only in their speech, but their narration, their thinking, and their parts to this story. Extremely well done.
 
I can't go too much into the plot line, because that will give too much away, and I do so hate spoilers in reviews! Just read it, you'll love it.
 
Drug abuse is described in some detail, Laurence is fighting his addicting all the way through. (This is my only reason for filing it on the over 18 shelf) And it does get a little messy when Jack and his plant are being dealt with. It is very low on steam. But I'm wondering if that might increase in future books. Quentin has much to learn about the art of dating, and all that entails, I just hope he can keep....oh, no, can't go there! Sorry!! Spoilers! *he he he*
 
I loved that you don't get the whole picture straight away. The world Laurence and Quentin live in, their stories and history. You get just enough to keep you going, plotting and planning, and then something else gets thrown at you, and you start again, plotting and planning, AND THEN SOMETHING ELSE... and you get the picture.
 
I will also say this. I am, at heart, a speed reader. I skim a lot. When a book makes me slow down and HAVE to read every word, that is always ALWAYS a good thing.
 
I read Laurence and Quentin's story in 3 and a half hours. pages in one single sitting, with out moving a inch. And because I did, it can only get...
 
5 full stars
