Enjoy and don't forget to add NEVERMORE - the second book in the Raven Crawford series by J.C. McKenzie to your shelves!

With failure and disappointment honed to painful perfection, Raven’s life is riddled with complications, including her troublesome attraction to the lethal Lord of Shadows. When her latest case leads to a group hell-bent on destruction, she must decide who to trust. Will she choose wisely, or will she fail once again and become the next casualty in a war between the Mortal Realm and the Underworld?

 

 

 

She’s a rundown waitress, part-time investigator and half-fae shifter who always gets the opposite of what she wants. Raven Crawford is working two jobs but can’t pay the bills, her confrontation with Queen Lloth has some unexpected and unfortunate consequences and her latest case is leading to a group of hell-bent on destruction and could make her another casualty in a war between the Mortal Realm and the Underworld.

 

Readers are hooked from the very first page of this highly suspenseful and exciting read. The second book in the ‘Raven Crawford’ trilogy has Raven’s life taking some stunning turns that push her more into the Underworld than she wants and her troublesome attraction to the lethal Lord of Shadows is getting harder to fight. This story starts off with some unsettling news, two new cases for the investigation business and just keeps building more and more suspense with every twists and turn of every exciting page. The plot has a steady to fast pace and is filled with lots of excitement to be found throughout as well as all the emotional turmoil that Raven faces as her life is turned upside down and maybe even inside out. 

 

Readers can’t help but become enthralled by Raven’s life as they follow the case and bite their nails in anticipation of what will come next for Raven, especially regarding the outrageous consequences of her confrontation with Queen Lloth. This trilogy is so very fascinating and full of wonderfully unique and surprising elements and a snarky heroine that really reaches out and grabs readers by their imaginations.

Over the Hills and Far Away: Book Review of Janalyn Voigt's "Hills of Nevermore"
Hills of Nevermore (Montana Gold #1) - Janalyn Voigt

Opening with a wagon train journey, Janalyn Voigt’s “Hills of Nevermore” offers plenty of action along with romance and faith. I have always loved tales set in the nineteenth century, but I have not read many from the Western genre, a dearth that I am trying to remedy. The tropes that I have seen thus far are fairly universal, focusing on the well-known “Wild West” moniker and the telltale lawlessness of the western territories. This provides a prime opportunity for Christian fiction set during this time period. Indeed, as a Christian historical romance, this first book in the Montana Gold series follows a familiar formula while simultaneously infusing fresh elements.

In the vein of such authors as Miralee Ferrell and Janette Oke, Janalyn Voigt crafts a compelling novel that challenges not only her characters but also her readers. One issue “Hills of Nevermore” raises is the conflict between the settlers and the Indians (Native Americans). I would have enjoyed seeing this explored further, particularly after the opening scene, but I appreciated that it was brought up, and America’s experience with it. While the vulnerability of women is not a new topic, Voigt approaches it in a distinctive manner through America and Addie, two young widows now traveling together. Addie’s situation is interesting for 1863 because she does not want to forfeit her independence and wants to buy her own business accommodations with wages she has earned herself. The plight of women, particularly single women in the mining towns, speaks to the immorality and the Sodom and Gomorrah existence characteristic of so many of the early Western settlements. This sets the stage for the Gospel message, and this is the best part of Voigt’s novel.

“The greater the sin, the more love is needed to cover it, and God is love.” This beautiful Biblical truth encapsulates the message of “Hills of Nevermore”. Each of the characters struggles with letting go of the past and moving forward, striving to overcome traumas, loss, and shame. Especially through Shane, the circuit riding preacher, sharing one’s faith is a prominent theme. The difficulty of doing so in a very hostile environment seems insurmountable until the bishop tells Shane that “No one can do the Almighty’s work for Him. All God expects you to do is speak for Him when you should, bend your knees as often as possible, and move out of the way when necessary.” Such sage advice remains pertinent today, reminding us that only God Himself saves people; we are called to obey and plant the seed of God’s Word in people’s hearts.

A sweet yet action-filled story, I would recommend “Hills of Nevermore” to readers who enjoy Christian fiction, historical romance, and Westerns. There are discussion questions at the end for further study. I did have a few criticisms. The shifting viewpoint between several of the characters was disconcerting at times, particularly between America and Addie. Also, I valued the connection between the title and America’s Gramma and wish that it had been directly linked to heaven in America’s mind instead of inferred. As a character, America fell a bit flat for me. Did she truly grow spiritually throughout the novel? I had hoped for more in this regard and felt disappointed in her character overall. Nevertheless, I did enjoy this story and plan to read the sequel.

Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe
Manga Classics: The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe - Stacy King,Edgar Allan Poe

ARC received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

An excellent way to introduce new readers to the tales of a classic horror writer.

This collection adapts the main works of Poe faithfully with excellent storytelling and competent narrative skills. Although the art, in general, was stunning, the shift in art styles between some of the stories was jarring for the reader which is what drops this from a 5-star book for me personally.
