Gift of the Raven - Catriona Troth Sometimes less is more. When a novella is well-written it can tell a deep, meaningful tale that is full and comprehensive. Gift of the Raven is such a book. Although it could have been a full length novel, I feel it would have lost a lot of its focus. It is a quick read but definitely not a light one. It is rich with feeling and intensity. At times it broke my heart but, ultimately, it was uplifting.

Terry immediately captured my heart. His strength of spirit is evident from the beginning. His resilience is admirable. He is a fantastically drawn character on a compelling journey.

I would absolutely recommend this novella. It is an outstanding debut for an author who appears to have immense talent. I will be keeping my eyes open for future works.
