An Unkindness of Ravens #2 Assessment
Excessive Faculty Drama
Ravens #2 picks up proper the place the debut difficulty left off. After assembly with the Ravens, Wilma heads house. She falls right into a heavy sleep stricken by a wierd dream (which the Ravens could also be answerable for).
When Wilma returns to highschool the subsequent day, she’s instantly confronted together with her resolution to satisfy the Ravens as a substitute of the favored clique the day earlier than. Queen Bee Scarlett Dansforth gained’t take no for a solution. Wilma’s new buddy Ansel encourages her to remain on Scarlett’s good aspect, so they comply with meet up within the library. Within the ensuing dialog, Scarlett tries to persuade Wilma they’re truly fairly related. (The entire thing has a really “Draco Malfoy initially making an attempt to befriend Harry Potter for standing in The Sorcerer’s Stone” vibe.)
Oh, and the man Wilma’s taken an curiosity in is seemingly Scarlett’s brother. Ah, highschool drama.
A Massive Reply and New Mysteries
Then issues get witchy once more when Wilma runs into the Ravens. They reveal a secret line tattooed on every of their palms – then mark Wilma in the identical manner. One in every of us certainly. (The varsity principal additionally has the mark, however covers it up with make-up. That’s gonna be necessary later for positive.)
We additionally study Wilma’s connection to the lacking Waverly. (Though Wilma herself doesn’t discover out.) I’m unsure but how I really feel about this reveal taking place within the second difficulty. On one hand, it appeared the obvious clarification, so I’m glad the story didn’t draw it out for a very long time. Revealing too late would have been anti-climactic. However was it too quickly to disclose such a giant a part of the puzzle? I’m unsure. I assume so long as this reveal occurred in order that Waverly’s disappearance stays the higher thriller, I’m advantageous with it.
I’ll admit I didn’t benefit from the second difficulty of Ravens fairly as a lot as the primary. It was undoubtedly nonetheless good, but it surely was one other exposition-heavy chapter. Nevertheless, the setup work wasn’t fairly as properly balanced as within the first difficulty. Nonetheless, I like the best way Ravens weaves collectively its thriller with simply sufficient magic to maintain issues attention-grabbing. After I’m accomplished studying, I’m already wishing for the subsequent difficulty. It’s onerous to ask for greater than that in a great comedian.
