”If you want spooky, eerie prose, this is the book to read. I like to read a trilogy or a series one book after the other so I waited until Mary Ann Poll wrote the third book in the trilogy before I started reading Ravens Cove. This is, in essence, a Christian series and although I'm not Christian I thoroughly enjoyed the story of good vs. evil. I became engrossed in the story and couldn't wait for the end so that I could start reading "Ingress", the second book. I'm in the middle of that one now, and it's just as malevolent in structure as the first one. I'm loving it!!” L.F. Geth
Geth's review comes from spooky, eerie scenes in the book, like this one:
Iconoclast stood with his back against the slimy, pea-green wall on the north side of the ravine. His most trusted fighters surrounded him in a semicircle, the growing number of demons stood in larger semicircles around them, spanning the ravine to the slimed walls on the south side. He grinned. Just like all good vultures, they could smell blood and had come from around this puny world to feast on those that had taken it upon themselves to live here.
He spoke to his captains—Gambogian, Caitiff, Venenose, Bruit, Trepaner, and Prevaricator. Atramentous and Profligacy, were absent by his orders. Guarding Plotno and his assembly
was their top priority. These eight had been with him in defeat in Josiah Williams’ horrid small town and in near-victory over the village in China. One man of God stood between him and complete conquest at that battle.
“Tomorrow we will feast,” he rumbled, the strength of souls taken carrying that growl high and far. Those twins had been a surprise and increased his power threefold. They were considered as one, coming from the same egg, so he was able to take two at one time and still not break the laws of the game.
