Booklist - 08/01/2021 Cordelia knows the story well: twelve years ago, her mother (a sorceress) fled to the forest castle where she gave birth to triplets. Ever since, she has kept them safely hidden away. While their older stepbrother, Conall, is diligently learning magic to help protect his siblings, Giles sings ballads, Rosalind practices knightly combat, and Cordelia uses her shapeshifting abilities for pleasure and for eavesdropping. Their mother has renounced her children’s claim to the Raven Throne, yet soon after the king’s death, warring factions, intent on using the heir in their game of power, track the triplets through the forest and into the mountains. Mysteriously compelled to mend the Raven crown, Cordelia leads her siblings on a perilous quest. In this, the first volume of the Raven Heir series, Burgis introduces the characters and their foibles, identifies the power struggle motivating the triplets’ adversaries, and entertains readers with scenes featuring magical powers, adventures, and conflicts. But at the heart of this eventful, enjoyable adventure story, Cordelia is exploring her personal identity and her place in the family. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
