When George Hagen introduces you to anyone in his book Gabriel Finley And The Ravens Riddle, within a two sentence paragraph, you will know who they are. The two main characters are Paladin (Raven) and Gabriel(Boy). Then there are some second main characters who accompany Gabriel on his trip under/Aviopolis, those people are Abby, Pamelia, Somes and Septimus. But then there are people who introduce you to all of the big characters, which are in ⅓ of the book, Endora (Raven Mother), Aunt Jazz and Trudy. You can’t forget Corax or his Valravens. The setting takes place in two places, Brooklyn, and the underground palace of Aviopolis. The main problem is that he needs to rescue his father and stop corax from getting the tork who will let corax and his Valravens take over the world. With some help from friends and “bullies”. You will see just how far he gets.
There are many things that changed this story from a regular story about a boy and a Raven. For example Gabriel and Paladin can talk in each others heads and they can merge and fly together. Then Gabriel has to capture a writing desk that runs and has a mind of its own. When they capture the desk it has nothing. If you read on you’ll see it has a kind of magic to open it. I will give you a hint (quote) “where is my father.” Well Gabriel makes a very big decision and that is to go rescue his father from Aviopolis and kill Corax, or at least stop him the problem gabriel runs into is like a 3 month process and if it gets resolved thats for you to find out.I loved this book it was one of the best I have read. Here’s why. It is a long book and that means that you can enjoy it for longer and you won’t have to write as many book reviews. It is also a very descriptive book because you feel like you are sitting around a fire listening to Gabriel tell it. Also it makes you dream about it. A person who would like this book is someone who likes any theme mystery,fiction, nonfiction, animals or scary things, this book surprisingly, has it. I would rate this book 5*****(stars) out of five stars.
