Raven | Book by Allison van Diepen | Official Publisher Page | Simon & Schuster

The who Jiang Shi story just sort dieepn fizzled out. I liked the subtle romance between the main characters, Nicole and Zin. RAVEN is a gripping story filled with lessons of friendship, love, and family. Zin doesn’t like that she wants to change, so he shows her his souls, which is dark and has the angry souls of the people die;en sucked the souls from. There is something about him that pulls her deeper and deeper into his soul.


Allispn there was barely any touching for most of the novel, the reader could still feel how intense their attraction for each other was and how close their relationship became.

The book was less then pages, big type and big line spacing. Turns out Zin is one of a group of immortals, lead by Carlo. Nic is a senior in high school.

That’s not exactly depth to their relationship. Zin believes in Nicole.

Maybe that was why it literally took me one morning to finish the entire book. Most encounters in the book didn’t last more than pages and these pages were pretty short too. I wonder if there’s a sequel because I felt like there was a cliffhanger. Her family is dysfunctional.

After being attacked on her way home from work late one night, Nic discovers a frightening secret about Zin. She wants to help the immortals there she says she can turn them mortalby sucking all the souls from them.

So she finds out that everyone from work is also immortal. Still, RAVEN remains an engaging read regardless of this inconsistency in plot construction, mostly due to the captivating voice that narrates the book. More books from this author: Price may vary by retailer. This book is different from the past three book that i read that were also all from the same author.


This disconnects the common reader from the story that either is targeted to a specialized audience or is a misstep on the part of the author.

Break dancing makes me think of going to see the movie Breakin’ when I was a smallish kid. Then the doctors tell them that he’s gone and has to be disconnected. Just goes to show me that I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, even though we all do.

In this case, I couldn’t connect with anything. And the immortals are Jiang Shi. When she gets a job in the nightclub where Zin works, she will learn that there is a dark secret that binds the other employees together.
