Blurb- Book 2 of All for the Game; The Raven King follows The Foxhole Court
The Foxes are a fractured mess, but their latest disaster might be the miracle they’ve always needed to come together as a team. The one person standing in their way is Andrew, and the only one who can break through his personal barriers is Neil.
Except Andrew doesn’t give up anything for free and Neil is terrible at trusting anyone but himself. The two don’t have much time to come to terms with their situation before outside forces start tearing them apart. Riko is intent on destroying Neil’s fragile new life, and the Foxes have just become collateral damage.
Neil’s days are numbered, but he’s learning the hard way to go down fighting for what he believes in, and Neil believes in Andrew even if Andrew won’t believe in himself.
Review- Yep. I loved this. Same great writing, same riveting plot, same fascinating characters. The Raven King unravels things a little further, and you get to see: more about the Foxes, more about the Ravens, and quite a little more about “Neil.” You get to find more about every Fox’s back story this time (except Allison, I think), which I really enjoyed. In particular, I loved the development of Neil’s relationship with Wymack, Renee, Betsy, and, of course, of course: Andrew. This book has some very exciting moments in terms of plot, in which we really get to see Neil start to live life fully and unabashedly unafraid, but also happy. He starts to love again. It’s bittersweet, considering his bleak future. His love story is so subtle, but so real, so, in it’s own way, “sweet.”
Anyway, a great read, just like the first book. I highly recommend checking it out. Love it.
