Review: Midnight Raven by Becca Boucher

Book Blurb

Kat Brennan was a loner. Trust no one, and don’t let anyone in, was the mantra she lived her life by. The few times she had, it ended badly. Now alone and bitter she’s facing the consequences of her actions. Until one night a chance encounter with a raven sets into motion a range of events, and desires, she thought she had buried long ago. 

Cace Matthews was a successful doctor to the outside world. He seemingly had it all, good looks, a fast paced career, and a prestigious new job. But no one knew the real Cace. The shifter who searched for the truth, the end to the curse that had been placed on his family. 

When the two cross paths it leads to discovery and passion. 

Can Kat accept her true lineage and the magic that surrounds her? More importantly, can she let go of decades old resentments and let herself find true love? Can Cace bridge the gap between family commitments, and the desire to be himself, all while navigating his true feelings for Kat? And will they both live to see midnight?

My Review
I felt sorry for Kat right away. You can just tell when someone is depressed and on the edge and that's the way she felt to me. Kat seems to have shut her self off from others and isn't looking for a relationship but that doesn't stop Cace from trying after they meet. 

After meeting Cace and finding out he's a shifter and that she has a special gift, she also finds out they are in danger. Cace is a wonderful character. He's a raven shifter and I totally loved that he is able to fly and we get a sense of what it's like to fly through him. Case and his sister are looking into the death of their grandfather, so there's also that mystery story line going on as well. 

With everything that happens and all the different things going on, this story should have felt bogged down with too many things happening at once but the author did a wonderful job of keeping everything flowing and keeping me engaged. 

I have to say that I'm still reeling from the ending of this book. I never saw that coming. There's a twist in this story that totally changes everything and everyone involved and I was completely shocked when it happened. 

While this is book 2 in the Moon series, you can read this as a stand alone book with no problem at all. If you like fairies, shifters, paranormal beings and family curses then you'd probably like this book.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
