Series: Rabenschwärze 1/2
Blurb: Elsa, a young girl from Istland, is always an outsider because her black eyes seem to be bottomless pits no one wants to get lost in, not even she herself. While hiking out in the hills and woods around her home like always, she suddenly gets abduced. But not only the men that captured her are strange, the world she's in as well. Elsa switched worlds without realizing it because she is a Raven, a shape- and worldshifter, an immortal soul that has lived time and time again for thousands of years. However, Elsa doesn't remember, and she doesn't know how to use her abilities either, yet she's sentenced to death - because Ravens disrupt the worlds trying to find a way back to their own world, a natural instinct, which leads to destruction and war for all other worlds. Can Elsa somehow escape her fate and find out who she really is?
Definitvely not the most terrifc read, quite plain actually, but it compliments the easy, unhurried flow of the plot. There's neither too much nor too less detail, but it's actually quite an amount of plot with many unnecessary, almost boring parts. It's nothing that chains you down, it rather takes some overcoming to pick it up, so it takes some time to get on and finish. The characters are interesting, but by not getting to know too much about them, the read loses depth. The idea of the plot, of the world and its rules, are good enough.
