Summary

New York Times best-selling author Carrie Ann Ryan continues her magical paranormal series where a town keeps its secrets, but an aging curse might just be their downfall.

The Christopher curse is one of legend - so old that every new generation knows they will be touched by it. With every spell muttered, every magical pull needed to save her town, Laurel Christopher knows she’s one step closer to burning to ash and leaving those she loves behind. She’ll fight with all she has to protect her people - and the man she loves - but she might not have enough strength left to save herself.

Jaxton Dark lost his best friend to the necromancer attacking Ravenwood but refuses to lose his mate to a curse that could take them both. He’s well aware of the loss calling them, but before he can stand up for those he loves, a betrayal cuts him to the core.

Sacrifice was always an inevitability when it comes to the curse that threatens their fate. Yet it’s only when the darkness makes a subtle and surprising move that star-crossed lovers Laurel and Jaxton will truly find out the meaning of who they could be and what they must give up to survive.

Laurel and her mate…

Laurel has been cursed. Her ancestors were cursed and now she her magic might kill her. Jaxton knows she is his mate but that might kill him and meanwhile the town is still being attacked. They must come together (witches, shifters and all) against that new threat. Lots of action, suspense, fights, and a traitor in the midst to come to a happily ever after… very exciting! Plus those voices 😍

Fantastic series

Book 2 in Ravenwood Coven series by Carrie Ann Ryan
Laurel is a witch and knows Jaxton is her mate but with the curse and issues with her powers they haven’t admitted there feelings and mated.
Jaxton is shifter, Wing Leader and struggled with his feeling towards Laurel but when things get series he knows they can’t keep hiding.
Absolutely love this series and love the mixture of witches, shifters, necromancer, mermaids etc in the town of Ravenwood looking forward to more in series
Absolutely fantastic narration, Carrie Ann Ryan knows quality and only hires the best. Definitely check out other audiobooks by Carrie Ann Ryan.

What an amazing book

This was an amazing book so full of excitement and entertaining characters. There is so much that happens in this book and it is certainly worth a credit. I have always been such a fan of Carrie Anns paranormal books and this one does not disappoint if anything it is my favourite so far.

The narration has given it so much more depth it really does transport you into the story.

wow to the story and wow to these narrators

I was swept away on the glorious tones of these narrators, I didn't stop the audiobook for one second. it's early in the morning and I've just finished the second book in the Ravenwood Coven. All I can say is WOW. I've cried, I've cheered, I've sobbed, I've screamed encouragement and I've gasped. I cannot tell you how Laurel and Jaxtons story panned out because that would give you spoilers. But I can say that I love that Hawk and fire witch x
This series is getting better and better if that were possible.
Yes our side have lost a few people but we gave as good as we got and we showed them that the Coven will not sit back and wait for the battle....we will win the war - hopefully.
I am very excited to finally find out what Ash and Rowens history is never mind their story. Bring it Ms Ryan, I have my box of trusty tissues.....replenished after every Coven story cos I sure do need them

Dusk Unveiled

Laurel may be ready to give up and let the Christopher family curse take her, but Jaxton is not. He is ready and willing to fight for her life even if it could mean losing his. After losing their best friend Jaxton is determined to fight this to the end no matter what the outcome is. As the fight for the town continues Jaxton and Laurel must make some hard choices and those choices will not only affect them but those that they are trying to protect as well. Their story is full of emotion and will pull on your heart at times. I liked Jaxton from the first book and was glad to see him and Laurel get their story told. Their book moves at a good pace and moves this series forward as well as giving you a nice romance. Narrators Aiden Snow and Victoria Mei do a good job of bringing these characters and their world to life and had me quickly immersed in the story.

Good second book in the series

I enjoyed the second book in the Ravenwood coven series but not as much as the first one. I loved Jaxton but did not connect as well to Laurel. Aiden Snow and Victoria Mei were once again great narrators though there was an adjustment for me at first because they’re the same narrators from the first book but voicing for different characters. Similar to the first book, this one includes non-stop action with some side moments of romance. Jaxton is the alpha hawk shifter and one of the the cleaner/fixers in the paranormal friendly town of Ravenwood. Laurel is a fire witch who is cursed and as a result, her fire is killing her. Jaxton and Laurel are fated mates but Laurel has been resisting the bond because of the curse and her fear of killing Jaxton when the curse takes her. The book has the same main characters from the first book with some new characters added into the mix. The book includes what you’d expect from this genre - fighting, dangerous situations, paranormal creatures, evil masterminds, henchmen, loyal friends and family, tragic back stories, mystical coincidences, secrets, betrayal, snark, laughs, and love. While this is a standalone, there is an overarching storyline so it is important to read the series in order. I will definitely keep reading the series.

Thrilling new story in the Ravenwood Coven series!

Very enjoyable friends-to-lovers romance, high on emotion and suspenseful plot twists. I really liked discovering more about the Christopher curse and the worldbuilding in this new series. Laurel is a strong heroine, bravely facing what seems like certain heartbreak and an excruciating death. Jaxton is an amazing hero. I love how patient and caring he is, and how he values Laurel, happy to be the wind beneath her wings. I loved Laure land Jaxton together. They seem so inevitable but at the same time quite impossible. I loved seeing how it all worked out in the end, even though they were several heart-stopping bumps on the road. The secondary characters are complex and intriguing, both the good guys and the bad. Can’t wait to see what will happen next!

Narration: Sublime! Aiden Snow and Victoria Mei have an excellent grasp of their characters. I loved the emotion they brought to their performance. Took the story to a new level.

Great wo

I have enjoyed listening to Carrie Ann's paranormal romances, and the Ravenwood Coven is a new favorite. The story is intriguing and grabbed my attention from the beginning. She did a great job of crafting the characters and the world they live in, and I can't wait to get to the next installment. Aiden Snow and Victoria Mei did a fantastic job conveying the chemistry and emotion throughout the story.

Dusk Unveiled

Laurel is cursed. For every spell she does she burns from the inside out. Jaxton is the leader of the wing and a hawk shifter. Boy, does Fate though curve balls at these too. While this on didn’t make me cry like the first Ravenwood Coven book did, there were several heart stopping moments. I adore Jaxton and Laurel was a badass. I really hope that we get to visit Ravenwood again after the last book, because I love these characters so much.

Once again the narration by Aiden Snow and Victoria Mei brought this story to another level. They really know how to bring the characters to life.

Could not stop listening! A great listen!

4.5-stars!

I recently listened to Dusk Unveiled by Carrie Ann Ryan and Loved it. This is book 2 in the Ravenwood Coven series. I would recommend reading book 1, Dusk Unearthed, before reading this book as the story continues with interconnecting couples. Narrated by Aiden Snow and Victoria Mie, they trutly brought Laurel and Jaxton's story to life for me.

Laurel is determined to help those that matter to her, even at a high cost to herself. She is determined, strong and loyal. Because of the curse, she is determined to keep everyone at arm’s length, even her mate. But Jaxton will not let her. She is his and he will do whatever it takes to protect them both and the town they love. He was protective and caring and I loved that about him. Their journey was full of an angst, suspense, and so captivating. I loved it and am so excited for the next book.

Happy listening!

Loved Laurel and Jaxton

These two have such great character chemistry. From the first book you could tell they had something. Laurel is fighting it because of the curse on her family that she believes they cannot break and in the end will burn her. Jaxton can’t let her face that future alone no matter what might happen to him. He will fight for her and with her to see that they can get a future together. There was a plot twist for the overall trilogy that I didn’t see coming towards the end and so I can’t wait for the final book and couple. These can be read as stand alone but there is more understanding of they are all read in order especially for the overall story of Ravenwood. I also loved these narrators they did a great job

LOVE THIS STORY ♥️♥️♥️

I found a new growly narrator that I love. Aiden Snow was pure perfection as Jaxton. This is such a great story. My heart was breaking for Laurel and Jaxton and then it got put back together. Thank you. Talk about girl power! So much action--Oriel is not playing games. However, the Coven together just keeps getting stronger an stronger. And who doesn't love a take charge Alpha and his woman who is his equal in every way. I'm on the edge of my couch just waiting for the final book. I can only imagine what's in store for Rowan and Ash. Loving this trilogy. Carrie Ann Ryan can write any genre and it will be a solid and captivating story.
