Ok, I think I’ve simmered on my thoughts for The Ravenhood Duet by Kate Stewart for long enough… These reads just left me at a total loss for words!
~ The Ravenhood Duet by Kate Stewart ~
Release Date ~ July 31, 2020
Can you keep a secret?
I grew up sick.
Let me clarify.
I grew up believing that real love stories include a martyr or demand great sacrifice to be worthy.
Because of that, I believed it, because I made myself believe it, and I bred the most masochistic of romantic hearts, which resulted in my illness.
When I lived this story, my own twisted fairy tale, it was unbeknownst to me at the time because I was young and naïve. I gave into temptation and fed the beating beast, which grew thirstier with every slash, every strike, every blow.
Triple Falls wasn’t at all what it seemed, nor were the men that swept me under their wing. But in order to keep them, I had to be in on their secrets.
Secrets that cost us everything to keep.
That’s the novelty of fiction versus reality. You can’t re-live your own love story, because by the time you’ve realized you’re living it, it’s over. At least that was the case for me and the men I trusted my foolish heart to.
Looking back, I’m convinced I willed my story into existence due to my illness.
And all were punished.
Ok, I think I’ve simmered on this long enough- actually too long probably, but both Flock and Exodus just left me at a total loss for words. My review will be for both books in the Ravenhood Duet, and I don’t want to give much away, so I’ll start with what a well-crafted story and what a story!!
Expect the unexpected…
Just when you think you know what’s going on, you will abruptly be snagged up and headed into a completely different rabbit hole. I couldn’t put this completely consuming duet down, and the cliffhanger at the end of Flock will have you jumping right into Exodus, so go ahead and get them both!
Prepare to hate characters that you’ve fallen in love with and find heart in characters that you despise…
Although I definitely wanted to wop Cecelia on the head numerous times for her decisions, I also enjoyed how much she matured throughout. The duet spans across 6 years, and she did own up to her mistakes, find her footing and confidence, and really redeemed herself to me in the end. And the men… Oh my heart, I have no words!
And the sizzle…
Wowza, Kate Stewart can certainly write some of the most steamy and passionate scenes!
Prepare to go through so many emotions while reading this duet…
Flock and Exodus took me on a journey that gave me the full gamut of emotions. There were happy moments, really sad and touching moments, and times when the storyline even had me in fits of anger. I seriously had such a ball of angst in my stomach while reading both books, and in true Kate Stewart style, she kept me on the edge of my seat and all wrapped up in the feels. While it was very long (814 pages), it was totally worth it, and I still didn’t want to let go of the characters in the end.
Do I recommend this duet? Yes! If you are looking for an escape and completely emotional ride that dances on the edge of your comfort zone, then you should definitely grab this right up!
