Lee and Victoria weren’t the only ones to love The Raven Heir by Stephanie Burgis… Here is what the QBD crew thought:
If you’ve been searching for a magical junior fiction fantasy story, “The Raven Heir” by Stephanie Burgis is all that you need.
In this story, Cordelia and her triplet siblings, Rosalind and Giles, have lived safely in a castle all their lives. Located in the centre of a forest, they are protected by the spells their mother has woven. The only time that Cordelia feels truly free is when she transforms into a dragonfly or a blackbird and can fly beyond the great stone walls. But then one day, the outside world comes to them when two rival dukes and their soldiers come for the triplets. They are there for one reason and one reason only, to find the eldest triplet – the heir to their throne.
This is a wonderful title for any child who adores stories about magic, adventure, family dynamics, and animals. This exciting world is bound to spark their imagination and make them want to explore the land themselves! With the underlying message that it can be better to work with others and trust their talents rather than doing everything alone – this is the perfect book.
