Raven Book Review

Raven Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Apr 05, 2009
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

In Allison Van Diepen’s newest book, Raven, Nicole discovers that the love of her life is immortal.

Author: Allison Van Diepen

When her brother Josh turned to drugs and left home, Nicole’s family fell apart. Josh phones regularly asking for more money, leaving her family broke and brokenhearted. Nicole knows that if her parents keep feeding his habit with easy money, he’ll never come home.


Evermore

To relieve the tension of her home life, Nicole works as an underage server at a bar called Evermore. It’s Manhattan’s top breaker battleground, and Nicole is no stranger to the dance floor. At Evermore, she and her breaker group, the Toprocks, let loose and battle their toughest competition, the Spinheads. But Evermore offers more than just a dance floor. It gives her the chance to work alongside the one person she loves—Zin.


Untouchable Love

Nicole fell in love with Zin the moment she saw him dance. Since then they’ve become close, so close you’d think they were dating. But they’re not. There’s something mysterious about Zin, something that forces him to deny their connection. Nicole wants to know why Zin acts to strange. But can she handle the shocking truth?


The Shocking Truth

One night after work, Nicole is attacked by a junkie. She would’ve died if Zin hadn’t stepped in to help. While pulling the junkie off her, she sees a light transfer from the attacker’s body to Zin’s. Nicole confronts Zin and learns the truth: he and the other full-time staff at Evermore are immortal. They’ve survived hundreds of years by feeding on the souls of those about to die.


A Devastating Choice

But living forever isn’t always sugar and spice—immortals can’t get married or have children. And they move around every ten years to hide their agelessness from the Heng Te, a group of hunters are determined to eliminate the immortals. When Nicole’s brother winds up on his deathbed, she must make a devastating choice: let him die, or let her immortal friends make him one of them.


The Bottom Line

Twilight fans will love the addictive, forbidden love of Raven. Nicole must choose between eternal life and mortality in order to save her brother and her relationship with Zin. If you like reading about love, break dancing and immortality, then you’ll love Raven.
