#onelinewednesday: Mark of the Raven

Wonder if you could walk into people’s dreams? What would you do? Bring out their greatest fears or inspire them to do greater things?

Selene from Morgan L. Busse’s latest release, Mark of the Raven, knows all about this struggle.

And she’s not the only one.

Though Damien (one of my favorite characters) doesn’t have the gift of dreamwalking he has his own struggles.

Ones that made me almost cry because I could so deeply relate.

His dedication and his heart for others was something that popped right off the page. (I’m not the only one who noticed. Looking at you Selene.) He simply knew how to pull all my heart strings something fierce.

One of those “strings” was definitely pulled in a conversation he had about the gifts each of the Great Houses were given. Though I won’t go into detail about what was said, this book quote below was such a good reminder that the gifts we have been given are not for our own benefit.

We were made to help one another and encourage.

May we both go boldly and use our gifts for something greater.

    Hallo, Hallo, Laura!

    I’m participating in the #FantasyForChristmas blog tour through Prism Book Tours – which is how I came to discover this author and the Ravenwood Saga – whilst following the author on Twitter, I spied your quote from the novel. It cuts into the heart of what I felt was the novel’s best strength – the moral and ethical choices everyone has to make for themselves. It is like you stated – what is the better use of a gift? For selfish motivations or for something greater than what has previously been allowed? I am excited knowing this is a new series and that the sequel is upcoming in the Spring. I am going to be seeking the novel through my local library and am thankful you wrote about this as it helped me realise my initial thoughts on what I might find inside the story are tracking well with the author’s own vision of her story!

    I’ll have to keep an eye out for Damien!

      Hi Jorie!

      Thank you SO much for stopping by and sharing! I’m truly thankful that I’m not the only one who was touched by the message of how to use our gifts. I think Flight of the Raven is going be just as good and nervously excited to see what happens next. Also, I hope you’re local library will get book one! I sadly am unable to do request our library and always get excited when others can. 🙂 Truly, so thankful you shared, Jorie! God is good! 😀
