Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too good to go unread! The Tower of Ravens by Kate Forsyth is an enjoyable read for older teens and above. Filled with mystery, romance, and suspense this book will make you want to skip classes or work just so you can grab a coffee and a warm blanket and read. The development of this unnamed girl brought up in a herd of wild half-humans to a gorgeous woman "Rhiannon" was one of the few beautiful character developments along with Lewen discovering what he really wanted in life. The Celtic dialogue brought the characters to life and almost every character introduced was in a way dynamic. All in all, this book is an excellent way to waste your time. READ IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning! This book is full of the things that make fantasy interesting: magic, ghosts, mythic creatures, intense characters. Not a single character can match Rhiannon is her sheer passion for what she has, for what belongs to her. Watch a wild girl grow into civilization and love. You should definitely read this book!
