Raven's Peak by Lincoln Cole

Hey everyone. I hope you are having a great Monday! With Canada over and the 4th of July past it is time to get back to work. I am lucky to have a whole week off to do my reading so I am using it to catch up on my books. This week I finished Raven's Peak, a book that was sent to me by the very generous author to do a review for before it is published. By the way, the publishing date is TOMORROW!
The first impression I got from this book was that it was very well written. The dialogue was smooth, the descriptions were short and to the point, and the characters were introduced with enough mystery to grab your attention. I had the idea that the story would be dark and scary throughout from the cover but instead there was a perfect amount of mystery, action, and thriller rather than horror.
Let me tell you a bit about it:

In our world humans go about their lives unaware that demons walk in the skin of our friends. One Order moves to manage these demons and stop the cults that allow them into the worlds from doing harm to others. These people go unseen in the crowds as they hunt down the demons and cast them out of the bodies using any means necessary.
Abigail is a member of the Order even if she is being held on a very short leash. After her mentor sacrifices himself to hell to save her from a powerful demon she spends all of her free time disobeying the Order in order to try to find him. Even though she knows her life is in danger in doing so, both with the demons who she shares a secret past and the Order who are keeping an eye on her, she is determined to use any means necessary to get him back.
Haatim has family issues. After a tragedy strikes his family he leaves home after losing his faith to find his own way in life. Unbeknownst to him he is being hunted by both the Order, who he shares a secret connection to, and the demons who want to use him against the Order. On the run Haatim looks to find the truth to everything while trying to stay alive.
These two unlikely friends team up to stay alive, stop the demons, and find the truth about their families. Abigail will drag Haatim with her despite the fact that he is untrained, unskilled, and has been blinded to the truths of the world his entire life.

The author did a great job at maintaining character structure and using attitude in the characters to tell their story. The story was told smoothly in a way that never let you get bored with a situation. Much like the characters the story is always on the move from one location to another.
