The Raven and the Dove
If you close your eyes and listen to the pages, you'll begin to feel the inevitable pull of fate and freedom that calls you skyward.
Wings brush lightly against your cheek as they whisper to you a story of forbidden love, the pureness of a dove, and the fierceness of a raven who together, form a connection that will change their worlds as they know it.
If they can rival the opposing tides of their destiny.
Told through the perspective of an enchanting imagination, author Kaitlyn Davis takes to to a world above the clouds that is layered with a rich history that I loved voyaging through. I also commend Davis's themes that empowered those with disabilities and encouraged character to revel in their independent. I thoroughly anticipate the sequel to The Raven and the Dove with the hopes of being able to read more about Xander and his feelings of unworthiness because of his missing arm and emotional past. He has a truly royal heart of gold in my book.
The main protagonists, Lyana (the dove of the House of Peace) and Rafe (the bastard son of the House of Whispers) beautifully contrast through Lyana's sense of freedom and innocence and Rafe's dark warrior heart. They had an insta-love in The Raven and the Dove that gave off the vibe of old souls meeting again in another life like Tristan and Isolde. That being said, I also look forward to seeing their relationship develop with a sparkling form of affection towards each other.
I was certainly not anticipating the ending that sends you towards a spiraling plummet from the sky to to the ground. All in all, The Raven and the Dove by Kaitlyn Davis was such a touching book for readers who wish to read about a love that resonates through time.
"The king had never known the warm kiss of the sun....Those golden rays were the stuff of songs."
"She stared at the stars until they became so bright, so all-encompassing, that she could see nothing else."
"But fate was fickle, and the gods were cruel just as they were kind."
"Love is when you find a piece of yourself in someone else, a piece you never know was missing, but without which you'd be broken."
