WOW!!! I LOVED RAVEN AND WAS SURPRISED, IMPRESSED AND STAR STRUCK WITH MY FIRST SCARLETT FINN STORY! IT WAS SO MUCH BETTER THAN I ANTICIPATED!!!
May Contain Some Spoilers;
The publisher's summary doesn't give a lot of information. This audio has an intriguing steady paced plot with a cloak and dagger feel. There were a few intense moments, but the plot wasn't too dark. It's filled with suspense, danger, terrorist, a mysterious, and dangerous organization lead by a even more mysterious alpha who's almost like an anti-hero, but one you'll fall in love with. Zara gets sucked into their world when Raven mysteriously appears in her room one night wanting to earn her trust. She works for a company who's secretly developing technology that could be used to harm millions. At first she doesn't want to believe, but after conducting her own research she can't deny the facts. The main characters are great, and there are secondary characters that play significant roles, and you get to learn more about them. Things really heat up between Raven and Zara, as he starts earning her trust, and protecting her which leads to some hot, steamy erotic sex scenes. I was pulled in from the first chapter, but the more I listened, the more I became entranced with the characters, plot and romance.
The only reasons I didn't give this story five stars; 1) it's kinda long, and only told from Zara's POV, and due to just hearing her POV there were a few times throughout the story I was ready to get out of her head, and back into the action. 2) I really wanted to hear Raven's POV, and see things from his perspective. Not sure if any future stories will be told from dual POV's, but if they are, dual narration would be perfect...as long as it's the right male narrator.
Tieran Wilder did a great job with the narration. The male characters voices were good, but the lead female character could sound high pitch at times.
Months ago, I saw this audio offered through audioboom, but didn't request it due to the lack of reviews on amazon, and the length, but did keep it in my wishlist. When I requested and received the second book to listen and review, I knew I wanted to go back and listen to the first book before starting the second. I'm so glad I did, because Raven was a great book. It's worth a credit, but if your caution about starting the series, it's an awesome KU/whispersync deal! I have over 800 audios, and this one's in my favorite four/five star pile.

Tieran Wilder does a wonderful job portraying all the different characters and was absolutely wonderful at showcasing the edgy darkness of this story. I loved all the intrigue and shady dealing and the mystery of everything going on. Throughout the entire story I couldn't decide if I loved or hated Raven (still can't too). There were times that he was adorable and so sweet and other times where I wanted to smack the crap out of him. This entire story of layer upon layer of whats going to happen next or WTF??? just happened and it was so awesome!!
