Raven Thrall

Loved it! 😍

A shapeshifter stuck between forms must choose between doing what’s right or remaining safely hidden.

Mariah is Ceo San, touched by the gods and gifted with the ability to shape-shift into a hawk. It’s supposed to be a blessing, but for Mariah, it feels more like a curse. Stuck somewhere between Human and animal form, Mariah must hide the wings that betray her identity or else be conscripted into the king’s army, enslaved to live as nothing more than a weapon.


Betrayed by someone close to her, Mariah is forced to flee her home. She manages to create a life of safety, even if it means being alone, until she meets Xae, a raven shifter whose family has been captured. Mariah must choose between her life of relative safety or helping Xae rescue his family. In the process, she learns more about herself than she ever thought possible and receives a calling on her life that could change the fate of the Ceo San forever.


Raven Thrall is an epic fantasy novel that examines the impact one person can make. Mariah’s conflicts do not influence her world on a grand scale, but they represent the common battles each of us face on a regular basis. Mariah’s growth throughout the story is organic and realistic and speaks to the way each person’s life can make a difference. This book will be especially appealing to readers who like strong female characters with strengths that lie outside the realm of mastery in weapons.
