The Raven Thief Book Review

The Raven Thief is the debut novel of Ashley Oliver and the first book in the series.


One sword with the power to decide fates.

Known as the Raven, Enya has a reputation for getting things done no matter the cost. Which is exactly why brothers Rowan, Beacon, and Niall hire her to help them retrieve a legendary sword. To Enya, this job means avoiding the noose and giving her crew the lives they deserve.

Unfortunately, there is far more to this quest than meets the eye.

A threatening rebellion. Fights for the throne. Sinister assassination attempts. Tyrannical rulers. With every corner turned, the hunt for the sword becomes far more deadly.

But the worst is yet to come.

An ancient evil is rising, hell-bent on reclaiming its army and power. Can Enya become the salvation mankind needs? Or will secrets kept by so-called allies allow the world to be plunged into darkness and despair?


I truely enjoyed this debut novel by Ashley Oliver and the main character of Enya.

From the beginning of the book I was drawn into Enya’s monologue and the world Oliver created. This novel is full of action, angst, drama, humour and romance. Enya is a very strong character and a good leader of her group.

The meeting between the princes and Enya was really well written. Even though she doesn’t like the king, she does like the princes.

The Raven Thief was a perfect mixture of magic, fae, humans and other mythical creatures along with old and new weapons. I was hooked into this world full of magic and mystery that the cliff hanger has me wanting the next book already.

The Raven Thief is definitely one for you if you loved Throne of Glass, Folk of the Air and Crescent City.

4/5 stars
