Title: Raven's Dawn (The Raven Crown Series Book 1)


A dying king, a favoured daughter and a secret hidden in the shadows.

The Raven Queen of Rocfeld is expected to be chosen by the gods from amongst the three princesses. One is favoured by the people, one is favoured by the Silent Sisters and one is favoured by her father, but who will be favoured by the gods?

The gods will mark their choice with raven hair, but as the days turn into weeks without a new queen, speculation and suspicion grows. The youngest daughter, Meg raised to put her duty first, has determined the gods will make the right decision.

But Rocfeld is not what it was. The harder Meg tries to help her kingdom, the more dangerous her world becomes. Her eldest sister makes decisions as though she is already queen. Enemies hide in the shadows whispering of magic and death, and her allies may not be as they appear.

Raven’s Dawn is an exciting start to the Raven Crown Series. If you like a little bit of political intrigue, a dash of magic and a temple full of gods, then you will love Georgina Makalani’s series.

--Abigail's Targeted Tip:


Always double check your blurbs for instances of “Let’s eat Grandma,” or areas of ambiguity. The confused mind says no!
