The Ravens is a fantasy novel that follows two girls and their first year in an exclusive sorority of witches. The fights between the main characters seemed a little petty and a little confusing with Scarlet treating Vivi as her worst enemy for most of the story yet for a brief period of time they seemed like best friends. Maybe this is realistic but it was just a little strange for me. There was a nice bit of slice of life in the story, however, some parts felt a bit unnecessary to the story and felt a bit extraneous. It’s quite fast-paced which generally is good but for this story, I feel that having a slower pace and focusing more on the sorority would be more interesting. I’m still a bit confused by the synopsis as the antagonist never really wanted to see the Ravens burn. I would rate this book a ⅗.

Kass Morgan’s “The Ravens” underlines the significance of benevolence and companionship in a community, specifically in a sisterhood, through an ominous, cunning story.

It was astonishing to see the growth of Scarlett Winter and Vivi Devereaux, the main protagonists, throughout the story sequence. As Scarlett’s eyes were heavily focused on the slot for Kappa Rho Nu’s future president, I loved seeing the courage and drive she possessed as she overcame several adversities thrown at her from different angles. To add on, being an introverted individual myself allowed me to resonate with Vivi’s compassionate character more efficiently.

I was rather skeptical beforehand because I never read a story dealing with witchcraft knowledge. However, I was easily captivated by the plotline. The use of a fake sorority persona to cover up their witch identity paved creative pathways for a vast amount of ways to go about the story, and Morgan executed it well.

Overall, the writing, character development, and storyline were superb. I highly recommend this riveting novel to readers ages 14+ due to scenes mentioning gruesome topics. This book will challenge you, push you out of your comfort zone, and show you what is most important in your life.
