NYT best-selling Author Carrie Ann Ryan begins a new witchy paranormal series where a magical town keeps its secrets, but those in it must find a way to keep themselves safe.
The moment Sage Reed makes her way to Ravenwood, she knows the small town lives up to its mystical lore - even if she doesn’t believe that she’s a witch. After losing her husband, she’s ready for change, and her aunt’s bookstore affords the perfect opportunity.
Rome Baker has secrets of his own - even some that he’s kept from the town he calls home. But when a striking and intriguing stranger saves his life the moment she steps into his path, his inner bear knows that she’s the one for him. However, with the town under fire, he worries he might run out of time before he can show her what they can have together.
A new enemy is on the horizon, one who hides in the shadows, whose history is steeped in lies. And if Sage and Rome aren’t careful, Sage’s new powers won’t be the only thing that spirals into flame.
Leaving you wanting more
Wow, what an ending. Now I can't wait to listen to the next book to find out what happens. How could you do that to us Ms Ryan?
This is an interesting start to a new series in Ms Ryan's paranormal worlds. Although there is no crossover between her previous paranormal series and this one, it still feels like you are coming home. It has been years since we have had a new paranormal book from her, and she knock it out of the park with this one.
Aiden Snow is such a perfect narrator for a growly bear shifter. I love the gruff and growliness of his voice. It will always be my favorite. Victoria Mei is a new narrator for me and I found her voice mesmerizing.
Wow, the start of another great paranormal series by Carrie Ann.
Ravenwood is a town full of witches, shifters, fae and other paranormal creatures. There is danger ahead for this small town. This story will take you on a journey of love, loss, good versus evil and keep you guessing. The chemistry between Sage and Rome is off the charts you can’t help but fall in love with these characters. Can’t wait for the next book in the series. Aiden Snow and Victoria Mei do an excellent job narrating Carrie Ann’s first book of her new paranormal series, Ravenwood Coven.
New shifter series-meet Rome & sage
“Dawn Unearthed” is a good book laying the foundation for a completely separate series from Carrie Ann’s other works. I really enjoyed this book, but did have to remind myself a few times for continuity this is completely separate from the other shifters/witches we have met in the other book series.
Sage has learned she is a witch and discovers this under less than desirable circumstances, including, when she first meets her mate, Rome and shocks him back to life.
This book has a lot of sadness and loss, but also has strong characters and lots of hope.
