In this sequel to Gabriel Finley & the Raven's Riddle (2014), Gabriel, his father having beenfound, now must embark on a perilous journey to find his mother. Once again, he has small group of friendsâSomes, Abby, Pamela, and his familiar, the raven Paladinâto assist in overcoming the numerous, dangerous roadblocks to bringing her home. Hagen takes an opening chapter to explain the origin stories so central to the previous book, especially the permutations of Corax, once Gabriel's human uncle, then a raven, now a Voldemort-like evil essence trying to return to physicality. Hagen draws on common fantasy tropes, especially those of the Harry Potter series, but there is enough that is fresh here as well. Of most interest may well be the backstories of other characters, and the interplay of relationships between them. Fans of the first book will enjoy learning the rest of the story, and new readers will catch up quickly. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
