Title: Chronicles of Steele: Raven: The Complete Story
Author: Pauline Creeden
Genre: Steampunk Fantasy
My review: I just finished this series and I have to say it is worth five chirp's or stars! Loved it! The characters are well developed and it was easy to connect with the lead protagonist Raven. I loved the concept and having a strong female lead who not only can hold her own with men but is better than the men is wonderful. Raven is a Reaper a job most often associated with men not only is she a reaper she is perhaps the best reaper, only one other may have been better than her and that would be her father. This book jumps right into the action and just keeps going which is another reason I love it. The setting of the book is very creative and unique. This is the complete series in one book so no buying three other books just to finish the story because it is all here. Grab this one if you love action and fantasy. I will be picking up other books from this author. Excellent book!!!
This is the complete Steampunk Fantasy novel - all four parts of the serial in one volume!
Human life has value.
The poor living in the gutter are as valuable as the rich living in a manor.
The scoundrel is no less valuable than the saint.
Because of this, every life a reaper takes must be redeemed.
Raven has lived by this first tenet since she was trained by her father to become a reaper. But since his death, she’s been spending years redeeming the lives she’s taken. By her count, she’s even and it’s time for that life to end. If she settles down and becomes a wife, she might just feel human again. But on the way to the life she thinks she wants, the baron of New Haven asks her to complete a task which she cannot ignore… Just when Raven decides to give up on her life as an assassin, she’s pulled right back in.
