REVIEW: Raven Song

Raven Song
Author: I.A. Ashcroft

After civilization is destroyed by nuclear war, the planet is poisoned by radiation. Survivors live inside a barrier protecting the remains of New York City. For more than 100 years, The Coalition has controlled their dark existence. Jackson is a smuggler who has strange visions, but keeps it to himself so others don't assume he's crazy. Then he meets Anna, a woman who has somehow flashed 100 years forward in time. She remembers the world before the war. Together, they discover they have strange powers and that they are both missing memories about their past. The Coalition knows about their visions and abilities, but so do other sinister forces hiding in the shadows of the ruined city. Jackson and Anna fight to regain their lost memories, to discover who and what they are. The truth will be much more shocking than they ever imagined.

I enjoyed Raven's Song. The story is interesting and the characters engaging. The villains in the story were just amazingly cool. It was a bit hard to dislike the bad guys -- they were beautifully horrific. I thought the first half of the book moved a little slowly, but the plot got more exciting mid-way through. For the last half of the book, I couldn't put it down! I had to know what happened next.

Raven's Song is the first book in the Inoki's Game series. The second book, Eclipse of the Sun, will be coming out soon. For more information on author I.A. Ashcroft and the world of Inoki's Game check out his website here
