Ravens Fall (World On Fire Series #2) - Lincoln Cole



Abigail was arrested by the Council, and now she's awaiting trial for the decisions she made leading up to and culminating in the events of Raven's Peak. She is restless while she waits for answers and knows that there is a real threat outside their walls plotting to bring them down.

Meanwhile, Haatim is getting a crash course in this world he knew nothing about and finding out that nothing is as it seems.

There are dark clouds on the horizon and it is coming whether they are prepared or not. Will they be able to weather this storm?


Lincoln provided me with a copy of the second book and I was truly thrilled and super excited to see what was going to unravel in this instalment.

We begin with the epilogue which really pulls ypu in making you wonder what has haooebed to get to that point and altimately what hapoens after. But the story itself begins months after Abigail is arrested, Frieda is letting Haatim travel with her whilst educating him about the world he was kept out of for so long. Once at the location where Abigail is being held for her trail, he is taught by a wonderful Dominick how to defend himself.

The book keeps touching on the feud between Haatim and his Father Aram who has kept this world from him for so long and now seeks punishment for the girl who saved Haatim in Ravens Peak and Haatim doesn't stand down when it comes to defending her name in the presence of his Father.

Coming up to Abigails trial we get to meet a few of the council members all who have a say on what happens to Abi but Aram brings up evidence against Abigail that could seal her fate at the lest second which leaves us all wondering how this is all going to unfold. 

The book splits between Haatim, Abigail, a little of Frieda and at parts,other hunters although that seems like a lot it's easy to keep track of the story they are part of.

Hunters begin to go out on missions that aren't a proved by Frieda and this puts them in danger. Whilst hunters are out things begin to hapoens which adds up against a single person.  Once it all unrolls it creates a sort of domino effect. I don't really want to give away what happens too much but basically things begin to happen in relation to the mysterious person back at Ravens Peak and more lives hang in the balance.

The book again is very much action packed and has so many unforeseen plot twists I had to take a moment to absorb what I had just read and experienced. I really loved getting to see more of the council as they serve a very large purpose in the world of the book and I thought it really ideal to get to know more of it.

As I got to see more of not only Haatim and even more of Abigail, I've only grown more fond and protective of their characters and I've even become connected to Frieda and Dominick who are to me kind of essential foundations to this plot line.

Its clear than not only has Haatim become physically stronger and able, he has also further developed mentally, leading him to stand up for what he believes in and knows are facts rather thank backing down when conflicted. As for Abigail she begins to show how human she really is, becoming worried the trial will go the wrong way rather than being optimistic, she then shows us a side of her we've never seen before providing us with not only a shock but also a thrill. I can't wait to see more of Dominick so that we can actually get to know even more about him and his past. I hope that we also get to know more about Frieda and her past as we only know a small amount about her.

At parts I got in a good laugh and that was often with scenes involving Haatim and Dominick which only makes me want to see them more. They're such a great pair.

The book was action packed and had many plot twists, I was fully immersed and can't even fault Lincoln in his writing. He has created a wonderful read that's thrilling throughout. With all that has happened up until now I really can not wait to see what else is in store.

Its a clear 5/5 from me and I'd also like to thank Lincoln for allowing me to read his work so far, I feel truly blessed to be able to read and write about his work.
