Title: Chronicles of Steele: Raven: The Complete Story
Author: Pauline Creeden  
Genre: Steampunk Fantasy

Hosted by: Dowie's Place

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.


Review


This is my first time reading steampunk and let me say I am thoroughly impressed. As always Pauline Creeden has done an outstanding job. I was swept right in and wanted to stay awhile. Pauline writes with such emotion that it jumps right into my soul. It is like I could feel everything right along with her characters.  I love how the characters are challenged to reassess their views. Not all things are as simple as black and white.  

Chronicles of Steele: Raven was initially written in 4 episodes and now they are all together in this book. The episodes fit together perfectly and tell the complete story. This is a standalone so when you finish you will find pretty much all the questions are answered, but a little is left to our imaginations.


Raven is a reaper who wants to hang up her crossbow and start a real life, but her world is turned upside down when she is given a job like no other she has ever had. She finds unlikely allies and travel companions and also some foes along the way. With lives hanging in the balance their journey takes them to unexpected places. Will she be able to save the one she swore to protect or will all be lost? Will she ever get the life she longs for?
