In the name of the Pizza Lord. Charge!
Never got around to it due to so many people saying the series goes way downhill later on. If you liked all of it I might just move it to the top of my pile.
The second book changed in a better way imo. We got more POVs and it veered more into proper epic fantasy instead of 'boy with the sword' that it was.
The last book was the worst of all, but that doesn't mean bad. It just means that the story's conclusion wasn't as good as it could have been.
The series as a whole is still worth it imo, because in the end it's a really solid and unique story.
I loved the first two books of Ravens Shadow. Third book a big disappointment. I’ve yet to find a trilogy on Goodreads where the final book drops in value so much from the first two. It goes from 4.44 to 4.17 to 3.67.
Blood Song 9/10
Tower Lord 9/10
Queen of Fire 8.5/10
The drop in the second book is largely because Vaelyn was the only POV in book one and they went to four in the next book and some hated that change.
