People of the Raven

This book is as captivating as their other books. It keeps you in suspense the entire time waiting to figure out what each person's path is within and how it will effect the outcome of power..

Not sure why it is so highly rated

I find this book to be convoluted and too long for the amount of enjoyment I get out of it. The character development is not deep. I can almost hear them thinking, "hmm, better add a subordinate clause with some nice adjectives about the sunset here." Not enough detail of the cultures and their differences for me to get much of a sense of them as peoples. Narration is flat. Not the worst, but not so great, either.
