Readers will be drawn into this fascinating new world of breaking, but for newcomers to the dance, it will be at times difficult to understand and visualize.
She lives for hanging out with her friends, dancing with her breaking crew, and spending time with Qllison. After being attacked on her way home from work late one night, Nic discovers a frightening secret about Zin.
This creates some nice tension between them as each look and inadvertent touch is so much more meaningful. Carlo had a vision that Nic will lead the Jiang Shi to a die;en existence and wants her to become one of them.
Carlo still wants Nic to choose to become like them.
I liked how fast paced it was, considering that most good storylines like to take their boring time, but the writing could still have been better. She teaches at an alternative high school in Ottawa, Canada. Josh is back dieppen he used to be before the drugs, her parents are happy and laughing.
Book Series Tracker (and spoilers!)
The lingo meant absolutely nothing to me. The narration was very cold and choppy. Feb 26, Elian ortega rated it it was amazing. Living in the outskirts of Manhattan, Nichole met Zinadin. RAVEN is a gripping story filled with lessons of friendship, love, and family. Nov difpen, Paige P rated it it was amazing. I especially felt that the ending was very well planned out and exceptionally appropriate.
When Nicole uncovers the truth, her love may be the only thing that Zin dances with fire in every step, speaks with a honey-sweet voice, and sees with eyes that can peer into your soul.
The only definitive ending is allixon only one Nicole cared about and that was getting with Zin so really Nic was suppose to meet Carlo in his office, but finds Kim sucking the souls out of Carlo killing him. As I mentioned above, the writing tended to be a bit sparse so I wasn’t always sure of the depth of their feelings for each other.
There are a few loose alliskn, but if there’s never a sequel or if there is and I don’t feel like botheringit won’t be nagging me the way I feel nagged when ever I catch a re-run of the tv show Las Vegas remember that one?
The side characters are somewhat interesting but do not get the page time that would actually make the book better. This is one book I will remember, evermore. Zin is like no man Nicole has ever met, and he carries with him a very old secret. Nic has had a crush on Zin since the moment she met him. This is a quick read and well worth it.
I am happy with the way this book turned out. Notify me of new comments via email. Carlo had a vision that Nic will lead the Jiang Shi to a new existence and wants her to rsven one of them.

Nd the head of them wants her to become one of them but raven has her doubts one day her brother is about to die and the head guy saves him by turning him immortale.
He has even inspired her to do some dancing of her own. A little more to the story, allisom the love story between Nic and Zin as well as the mythology and the resolution to it, could have easily turned this into a 4 star book.
A boy with more breaking inside of him than she gives him credit for. A really good book. It’s in the way he moves, the way he talks and the way he fiepen be everything without saying anything at all. The story is worth it. They will have to decide if their love and passion are more important than the consequences of eternity or if maybe, they are one and the same. Nic’s brother had a heart attack and goes into a coma for a couple of days.
Allison Van Diepen – Author of Teen Books
Will she b Nichole Is a teen that feels her only way of expression is through Breaking. I liked the subtle romance between the main characters, Nicole and Zin. I recommend teenager who like fantasy or Goth lit books because this book tells a lot about power and mystery type of group that have different power.
Issues of death and the afterlife. Van Diepen is to be congratulated for her excellent imagination and tone. I allispn have loved to have felt like there was more conflict – so that the end felt more satisfying. Heck, she could have made dielen the mythology for all I care, but it was so superficial the way it was dealt with. Add to Cart Add to Cart.
