Book Review: Raven's Peak by Lincoln Cole

Raven's Peak
By Lincoln Cole
Genre: Horror, Paranormal, Thriller

A quiet little mountain town is hiding a big problem. When the townsfolk of Raven's Peak start acting crazy, Abigail Dressler is called upon to find out what is happening. She uncovers a demonic threat unlike any she's ever faced and finds herself in a fight just to stay alive. 

She rescues Haatim Arison from a terrifying fate and discovers that he has a family legacy in the supernatural that he knows nothing about. Now she's forced to protect him, which is easy, and also trust him if she wants to save the townsfolk of Raven's Peak. Trust, however, is considerably more difficult for someone who grew up living on the knife's edge of danger. 

Can they discover the cause of the town's insanity and put a stop to it before it is too late?

My Review

Intense! I was shocked after reading the prologue; it was so good! I really enjoyed the fact that the two main characters are people of color. It's tiresome to read the same type of main characters in novels over and over again. Diverse characters are crucial to a well-balanced story.

The plot was very interesting. I like the paranormal angle of Raven's Peak, the demon hunting, and fighting. Abigail is tough! And in some weird way, Haatim makes an awesome partner for her. The back story of how Haatim fit into the story is a total surprise. The demons in this book are so tricky and manipulative - as they should be. 

I read Raven's Peak in one sitting. It has an excellent blend of the supernatural, family drama, and loyalty. Add this one to your summer reading list!
