Synopsis: Raven Crawford knows better than to venture into the seductive world of the dark fae or agree to any of their salacious promises. She plans to pay off her debts so she can get on with her life and stay far away from the denizens of the Underworld.
Unfortunately, her numbskull twin steals from the most tempting and lethal fae of them all. Now, Raven must help the Lord of Shadows get back what her idiot brother stole. Her only weapons? Just a little ingenuity and a whole lot of snark. It’s suicide for sure, but she’ll do anything to protect her twin
““The biggest problem with red flags is I’m drawn to them.” ~ Bulls and Raven Crawford”
Conspiracy of Ravens is a Paranormal/New Adult story and is the first book in the Raven Crawford series. It follows Raven Crawford, a Shifter who has the unique ability to transform into a Conspiracy of Ravens, as she tries to find out what happened to her twin brother Bear who has been missing for a couple weeks. When dangerous strangers start approaching Raven and her family she knows he must be in big trouble. As it turns her small time criminal brother has stolen a very big, important artifact from a very important person.
“She should be worried about survival right now, not clothes. Why couldn’t she focus like normal people?”
Raven finds herself teaming up with The Lord of Shadows, Cole, to help find her brother before the other Big Bads do. Although the two are working together Raven isn’t sure she can trust the Shadow Lord, but has no other choice if she wants to survive herself to find Bear. From the first time they crossed their paths, Raven finds herself drawn to Cole. Raven was a snarky and hilarious main character who you can’t help but root for the whole time. Cole was dark and mysterious and funny and the chemistry between the two was ~fire~.
I loved Raven, I loved Cole, and I loved Ravens whole family. They had such a great relationship. The plot was so intriguing and really pulls you in. This was such a humorous, fun read. I really loved it! It even had an enjoyable story line that got me excited to read the rest of the series. Although some of the twists were predictable, I still found myself going whaaaaaaaat 😂 I can’t wait to find out what Raven will do next. I’m giving this a 5 out of 5 stars.
