A set of magical triplets, two warring dynasties, and a broken crown waiting for its rightful owner…

Deep within an enchanted forest lies a castle where a set of triplets and their sorceress mother have lived for years — safe from the decades-long war for the Raven Throne that rages in the kingdom beyond. Cordelia, one of the triplets, has the power to become any animal with just a thought, and she yearns to discover more about the world outside her castle.

But one day, the world comes to her, when the eldest of the triplets becomes the newest heir to the throne. Knowing that being named heir means certain death, Cordelia’s mother hid the truth about which child is the eldest when she hid them in the forest. When her family is captured, it’s up to Cordelia to use her powers to keep her siblings hidden and discover the truth about the Raven Heir — before it’s too late.

A thrilling new fantasy full of magic, adventure, and the power of family.


The triplets; Cordelia, Rosalind and Giles has been lived in a tower since they were child and it was protected by their mother's magic. Cordelia has always been curious the outside life. Each of them has amazing power and I really like Cordelia's power where she can shape-shifting into any form she wants to be which for me that would be easier to go away from anyone or someone. What about the other two power? erm, I don't want to spoil that much cause where the fun to know would be, right?

 Magical fantasy always been my favourite novel that I'm looking forward to read and The Raven Heir is absolutely magically wonderful. I enjoy the whole story especially on the first half that make me curious to why they were hide away from other people. Why can't they go out and meet anyone? The triplets are quite humorous especially Giles. Giles is a cute character, I must say. I love all the characters so I can't say which is which is my favourite because each of them has a unique character and personality.

I love the family focus in this book. it shows that no matter what happened, family always comes first. I may not be the target audience however I still love this book. It has a great plot, beautiful world building, the character progression is amazing. They may not been trained that well but they get through it all eventually. 

You can't sit still right from the first chapter, the action has already started. You hardly want to put the book down because your curiosity will grow as pages after pages goes. The Raven Heir is an enthralling, fun. heartwarming, humorous read and a secret for you to uncover it. I can't recommend you enough but please take this book to your house now and enjoy your read with siblings/children together!
