As she let her gaze drift around her, she saw that there were more birds. Perhaps a dozen or so, perched among the trees that stood on the edge of the clearing. And yet more were arriving, swooping down through the gap overhead and landing on branches that overlooked them. The birds weren’t threatening, yet the sight of them all coming together in this dark and isolated spot was unnerving. Tanya reached a hand out towards Martin, and was relieved to feel him take it. She felt him move in behind her. After the uncertainty she’d experienced with him in a similar position only a few moments ago, she recognised the irony of her reaction. His closeness offered security.
“You know what they are, don’t you?”

A stranger’s arrival in a small village coincides with a tragic accident. For the Gates family, in particular, it’s more than a coincidence, but unease increases following a brutal attack. As tensions rise, a dark past returns to haunt them and others, while newcomers to the village are drawn into a mystery with terrifying consequences.

And only a select few know why the ravens are gathering.


My Review:

This is a highly engaging and extremely well written mystery novel. We are introduced to a myriad of characters that all dwell within Raven’s Gathering, a small “village” in the UK where the population is small and the closeness among the people begins to get downright awkward.

An estranged ex-village member, Martin Gates, returns to Raven’s Gathering and things start to get weird. People are unruly attacking one another with harsh comments, animals and people are coming up hurt or killed, and there’s even a stolen military bomb to top off all the excitement.

Martin is an interesting and provocative character that has you sucked in from the very beginning. He sweeps into town like a long-lost ghost, and is treating as such by his own family who just want him to leave. He comes back with a plan in mind, but until it’s revealed you have no idea what you’re involved in. With his family having disowned him and nowhere to stay while he is in town “visiting”, he sets himself up in the home of Tanya and Ian McLean. They are not your average village dwellers and moved there only a few years ago from the city.

They are as captivated by Martin’s unique appeal as the villagers are appalled by it. As the mystery continues to develop, disturbing twists and surprising turns will keep you turning page after page.

The Raven’s are certainly gathering … but what for? Just wait and find out!
