I am Nightfall.

I am your worst nightmare and your best friend.

I am the keeper of secrets and the teller of lies.

I thought revenge was my only motive.

I was wrong.
House of Ravens continues Scarlett's story as she begins to really embrace her role as Nighfall.  She discovers just how difficult it is to have a secret identity - it's really hard to be a "superhero" and you don't get a lot of sleep.  No glamorization here.

She begins to make new friends in training and there's even a bit of a love interest, but Nighfall once again gets in the way.  This book had a lot of loss in it.  From the idealism that Scarlett has about the world and people in general, to friends, and discovering those hidden agendas that seem to multiply around her.

Her crusade to help Zeniths continues to meet with some very extreme resistance, and she finds that some of her enemies are soooo much closer than she first believed.  There are also some unlikely allies.  The royal family makes for some great side characters and gives the reader a chance to see the other side of life and how other parts of the world are managed.

I'm still blown away by how detailed and exciting the lore behind this series is.  Everything ties together so well and each scene, no matter how small, somehow plays a part in pushing the story forward - so pay attention to all the amazing details.  I can't wait to see what may happen in book three.
