I have always found Brian's writing to be of a different flow from that of others. With every read, I have found his narration to be mesmerising. Ravensong did not disappoint me one bit and I wish I could wipe my memory and read this again and again. The writing is beautiful, the story has a beautiful flow to it and I read the story without a strain. It was such a good reading experience for me and I hope Brian keeps on writing for a long long time.

It was lovely how rhythmically the story went on. It was captivating, interesting, poetic; it was everything perfect. I loved the songs the most. I fell in love with Gromli, little by little and was fascinated by Elena's powerful character.
The author has a nice poetic writing style, a distinctive trait, as not everyone is able to keep up a good pace like that. Definitely, looking forward to reading the sequel.
