I was a fan of the author's Valducan urban fantasy books, so I thought I would give this a shot. i'm really glad I did. The stories revolve around a thief named Ahren, who ends up joining The Tyenee, the secret thieves guild, after he is betrayed on a job. He is branded the Black Raven because of the betrayal, and is convinced by a Tyenee leader that it is a good nickname. In fact, he leaves black raven feathers at the scenes of his crimes as a calling card. He has a series of adventures, with successes and failures, all the while fighting against an enemy that has the power of a demon to assist them. The characters are compelling, especially Ahren, and he has more than his share of failures to go along with the triumphs, including losing someone very close to him. The villains are well thought out, with the actions scenes being exciting an believable. The villains are not over the top Bond villains, but realistically written. I am really excited to see where he takes the character in future books. Any fan of Alex Bledsoe's Eddie LaCrosse books or Brent Week's Night Angel books should really enjoy this book.

Every story was excellent and captivating. I was always satisfied by the conclusion of one story straight into the middle of the next.

Ahren was by far my favorite; his character development was fantastic and I really fell in love with him.
What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
As always, perfect reader.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes! I found myself sitting in my car after work trying to finish a chapter before heading inside.
