While my initial impression of the Shadowfell series was anticipation, the advent of a rousing adventure in a new and interesting fantasy world, my excitement has dwindled and fizzled under the slow plodding of RAVEN FLIGHT. I appreciated the technical message behind this book, the way Neryn developed her powers in particular, but very little of the actual plot was able to hold my attention.

SHADOWFELL is the long, sweet build-up of what promises to be a fantastic adventure. Though Neryn starts the book as a dependent, subject to her father’s whims, she very quickly emerges as a strong, kind-hearted heroine with a surprising capacity for saying “no”.
