    The raven trilogy is a great book to read. It intrigued me from chapter 1. I was really amazed how a thin book has entailled more than just adventures...As it further encompasses the aspects of love, romance, loss and battles. I really am looking forward in reading the part 2 of the novel!!!

    Ah the days of carrying the title, debut author or debut novel. I remember it well. It was a total catastrophe, but I had the love and support of all my friends. It was the greatest inspiration and journey, but one I had to learn from. I am happy to be participating with Melka Stansah on her first journey with her debut series, book one The Raven Trilogy: The First Journey. I hope she enjoys her experience as much as I did, but with enormous success. I was gifted with a copy The First Journey d Ah the days of carrying the title, debut author or debut novel.

I hope she enjoys her experience as much as I did, but with enormous success. I was gifted with a copy The First Journey during a busy time, but managed to read, take notes and offer up an pretty cool review on her book. This tale is similar to many in that a young human is set on a mission, long before he's truly ready. His fate was out of his control and his only clues came in the form of two very different colored irises and something called ... (original banner from http://theraventrilogy.com) It begins on a cold, winter night, when a warrior keeps his word and takes a baby boy as his own. It ends with that baby boy, now a young man, running away to unselfishly save others from an approaching war. Raven has had a rough life. He was isolated, didn't eat or drink and barely knew how to fight, but he was unexpectedly given a mission: Revenge. Barely a man or a fighter, he goes out into a world that hated him to kill the man who's manipulated so much of Raven's fate. He's ostracized, by man and beast, because of his bloodline and his eyes; he is callous and arrogant and he's in need of a friend. What he doesn't realize is, when he manages to find a friend, Isabel, the arrogance and the intimidation doesn't matter anymore. There is a cost... *For the full review: http://bit.ly/2cAZpQ0 **Book was provided by author, Melka Stansah, for an honest review.

    The story was good, and I can see further potential in the series. In truth, it often felt more like reading an overview than the actual novel. It was quite short, and there were places where more dialogue would have made it feel more immediate. The editing was also weak, which made it difficult to get through at times. With a little more attention to detail, I believe this imaginative story filled with unique characters, could be more successful.

    "You have both your father's and mother's eyes. Your topaz eye meants you have something that I don't" "Which is what?" "Power." Nicholas replied. "You have enormous power inside you, Raven That power belonged to your father, power that is even greater than mine." First things first, Melka Stansah is a huge Adam Lambert fan! Probably the biggest Lambert fan I have ever seen! I knew this about her as soon as I saw her social media pages, and thought it was super awesome. I too, really enjoy Adam La "You have both your father's and mother's eyes. Your topaz eye meants you have something that I don't" "Which is what?" "Power." Nicholas replied. "You have enormous power inside you, Raven That power belonged to your father, power that is even greater than mine." First things first, Melka Stansah is a huge Adam Lambert fan! Probably the biggest Lambert fan I have ever seen! I knew this about her as soon as I saw her social media pages, and thought it was super awesome. I too, really enjoy Adam Lambert's music. When I first opened the book, I was not surprised to see that this book was inspired by, and dedicated to, the one and only ADAM LAMBERT! Oh, and after talking with the author, I found out that she was actually able to give Adam a copy!! How cool is that?!! Now that my little rant is over, we can start talking about the book! The First Journey by Melka Stansah was a very exciting story full of secrets, battles, magic, love, friendship, heartbreak, corpixes, and most of all.. REVENGE. Raven goes on a long hard journey in hopes of seeking revenge. To find out what kind of revenge, and on who, you will have to pick up a copy of this book and read it for yourself! Stansah paints such a magical, crazy world in her readers minds! It was easy to see that Lambert inspired this book. Lambert is very colorful, vivid, and unique.. just like this book! The people, the places, the items, and the words, are all so beautifully described and perfectly used. Stansah picked the perfect words to use while writing this book. It is as if she carefully thought out each word, one by oe, to make sure that each is worthy to be in such a lovely story. This book would make the perfect movie and it is safe to say, that Stansah has a brilliant mind! The First Journey stood out to me as soon as I began reading the first page. Raven's journey is definitely not an easy one, but he slowly begins finding himself and the truth about his family. I really enjoyed watching Raven grow and deal with his history and, what could be, the start of his new life. Stansah gives Raven a lot of background history and unique characteristics. Stansah's reasoning behind giving the boy 2 totally different eyes is pretty crazy. It is his eyes that makes him special though. It makes him who he is, and more specifically.. what he is. Raven also begins falling for a random woman, who he did not mean to save, let alone, meet. "Who can stop love? Once it fills one's heart, it overflows with unstoppable dreams and relentless hope." I really recommend this series! I was drowning in this book until I reached the very last page. It was only until the very last word that I was able to come out of the book for air. I can't wait for the second book!!

    This book is pretty skinny but that doesn't mean it's boring. The truth is, it gets better and better. I rarely read this kind of genre but it really catches my attention, I really did enjoy the book and I love the story, The world-building and the characters. it is really a good book. THE RAVEN TRILOGY (the first journey) is fastpaced in a way that the author has the ability to tell the story fast and make you love her characters in one snap! the author has really the VOICE!

"she found her voice"..... this book is kinda masculine and i didnt saw a mark of feminity of it since the author is female, and it's GREAT! job well done. and i love how it is direct to the point. The only thing that confuses me on this book is the naming of the place (i have a problem of names) but i did manage it and read until the end. OHOHOHOHOH I LOVE RAVEN The 1st two chapters is pretty dramatic and i almost cried! The middle chapters is more on cutie patotie romance that makes you roll in your bed and makes you stand and said wait wait wait! What the fudge! It's getting too fast and i can't breath and OMIGAD! And the action pack makes you really read till the end! kinda breathtaking somehow! I'm a lil sad because yeahh, it's skinny and it makes me hungry for more of the story!!! But i am happy to read the story. And i promise you'll never be get disappointed.

'The First Journey is a fantasy story for YA readers. To be honest, I don't usually read much fantasy and prefer contemporary literature. 'The First Journey' introduces readers to outcast and orphan, Raven, who sets off on a quest to avenge his father's death. The story follows Raven's journey to Raholzen with his travelling companion Isabel. Along the journey, Raven fights numerous battles and has adventures. There are many battle scenes and Stansah has developed a highly imaginative world. I enjoyed Stansah's simple writing style, particularly so in the beginning which reads like a folktale. Unfortunately, I am not one for battle scenes in any genre. A few modern words used in the story were distracting and took the reader out of the story. 'The First Journey' is easy to read with clean romance. This will suit readers who enjoy YA fantasy. My copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review.

    The Raven Trilogy: The First Journey has an interesting basis. I enjoyed Raven and his lone wolf attitude; however, I was confused by the mix of present and past tense that Melka Stansah switched between. In the beginning of the book the writing was written in standard past tense style, but later on it switched to present tense which made the writing read a bit awkward. For example: "Chavet looks at his troops in dismay, whatever happened is beyond his comprehension." By writing the story in this The Raven Trilogy: The First Journey has an interesting basis.

By writing the story in this manner, Stansah seemed to keep the reader outside of her story instead of letting them completely in. But that being said, if the tone of the story were fixed, this story would be highly enjoyable. Stansah molds together a word of mythology and dystopia all in one. She brings to surface elements of the old world, while making it clear that her story and setting are thrust into the future. Watching the characters in this novel unfold was enjoyable, and I found myself growing attached to Raven by the end. He was a true warrior, and seeing his strength grow despite the setbacks of his past made me feel hope for the future of us all. Raven is a true role model for readers of all ages, and I think that young adults would benefit the most from this novel. It is a great mix of fantasy and real life lessons within an original storyline.

    I actually re read The Raven Trilogy because I felt the first time I didn't give it enough attention. Although short it provides a quick and interesting literary punch that's very satisfying. I enjoyed the fact that there were characters, myth and story that I was unfamiliar with. The pace was quick and clean Sometimes less is more because it allows the readers imagination to soar .

    Love this book so much I finished reading it in just a few hours! The story line is simple, yet intriguing. The characters are stubborn, yet loveable. There is a great mix of adventure, gloom, romance and joy. Looking forward to reading the second (and third!) book in the series.

    This isn't generally the genre of book I would read but I picked it up this morning and wasn't able to put it down! I can't wait for part 2 to find out if Raven and Isabel see each other again! A fun easy to read fantasy with a romantic twist. Great book! This isn't generally the genre of book I would read but I picked it up this morning and wasn't able to put it down!

    This book is action-packed and during those action scenes, I couldn't help but think that it's like a lighter version of Game of Thrones. Melka's writing is so good, I swear! I also love the plot and how the story was shown. I did not expect it to be a coming-of-age story and I loved it. I thought it was just a middle-grade book, but naaaah. IT'S A VERY GOOD COMING-OF-AGE BOOK AND YOU'LL LOVE IT IF YOU READ IT!!! Trust me on this one. ;) This book is action-packed and during those action scenes, I couldn't help but think that it's like a lighter version of Game of Thrones. Melka's writing is so good, I swear!

    I received this book for free, inexchange for an honest review ***My Review** This book was a short read, possibly way to young adult, for this adult. But I believe it will be well received with young readers. It was a creative story, and I thought it was neat she dedicated the book to Adam Lambert.
