Title: Raven’s Glen
Author: Nancy E. Polin
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Skylar Donaghue has no memory of the night her parents died. When the perfect career opportunity arises, she ignores her brother’s superstitious warnings, choosing to leave the Choctaw reservation where she grew up and return to the place of her birth. Widowed and caring for his young daughter, relationships are the last thing on Jack Langham’s mind. A chance encounter finds him intrigued, then captivated by a beautiful, but mysterious, violet-eyed woman and before he realizes it, he’s falling faster than fate may ever allow. Stephen Donaghue holds the key to that long ago night, but never speaks of it. Now that Skylar is being pulled into the past, he fears its ghosts will darken their future and claim his sister forever…
A paranormal romance that carries both genres equally like a ball carrier who switches from right to left hand over the course of the football field. The romance between Skylar and Jack is brilliantly written and there was more than enough in that story to fill a fantastic romance book.
The paranormal story is presented in an extremely mysterious fashion. There are some aspects to the story that didn't even become clear to this reader upon finishing the book. The evil ‘being’ in the book is well presented in a way that leaves the hackles up on a reader. Certainly, this Big Bad is equal to the kind of evil found in something like The Amityville Horror.
You are left truly wondering what really happened in the past that precipitated the paranormal present. The character of Avery was a treat. The characters of Benny and Chloe are left a bit undefined and that is too bad. There seems to have been enough of a story in the tale of Skylar and Stephen and their 'family' to fill a whole book.
If you are a fan of the Omen or The Amityville Horror, then this book is for you. A book that will keep you on the edge right to the end.
