Title: The Raven Tower
Author: Emma Miles
Author Bio: I presently live in the stunning county of Dorset where I’m a cat slave to Wolfe and Piglitt I spend as much time as I can outside in nature and love exploring and learning about new cultures and languages. I’ve visited Greece, Serbia, Transylvania, Sicily and Norway as well as making several road trips around our beautiful United Kingdom. I paint, sculpt, dabble in photography and do a little archery but most of all – whenever I get a chance – I write.
My writing started from a very young age when I often found myself being the one taking charge of and entertaining all my younger cousins. They loved to hear my stories and although they mostly called for ghost stories it was fantasy I fell in love with when I read The Lord of the Rings when I was ten. I went on to write stories and short ‘books’ for my friends through school and college; then one evening whilst I was waiting for my aunt and uncle to visit an image came to my mind of a boy sitting beneath a bridge. I didn’t know who he was or why he was there, but from exploring those questions ‘The Wind’s Children’ trilogy blossomed and grew with roots going back into his far history as well as stretching out to his future. The boy’s name was Tobias.
I have since left Tobias’s world of ‘Naris’ to explore the Valley with Feather in the ‘Hall of Pillars’ which is now available through Amazon. I am now presently finding my way through Elden, the beautiful Fulmer islands, the ravaged Borrows and haunted Chem with Kesta Silene; a shamaness of sorts with a big journey ahead of her. I hope you come along to share her story and join her adventure; she needs you and you won’t regret it.
Synopsis: What price will Kesta and the fire-walkers have to pay to keep their people from enslavement? The raids were more ferocious, more desperate and much earlier in the year. When Kesta sees in the flame who is really behind the attacks the Independent islands of the Fulmers seem doomed to fall. Their only hope is to cross the sea to seek the help of the King of Elden and his sorcerer, the Dark Man.

Review: I am not sure where to begin with this review. I have just finished reading The Raven Tower and I absolutely loved it! The worldbuilding is incredible, from page one I was so immersed in the world that I didn’t want to leave it and put the book down.
The main character, Kesta, is truly wonderful, she is dynamic and brave but also so likeable. She is thrown in to a world that is not her own and yet she manages to deal with it with grace, most of the time. She is always thinking of others, and how she can help them. It’s clear to see that she has been raised to be a good ruler by her parents.
There are a whole cast of characters that it is a pleasure to read about and get to know them. I love that the narrative switched between characters and countries. It really helped to keep the action flowing and the pacing of the plot throughout the book was perfect.
I cannot recommend this book enough. There is a whole cast of vivid and amazing characters, the world building in The Raven Tower is absolutely incredible, and the system of magic is so unique.
