    • Excellent continuation of Nettie (and) Rhett's journey. After the doozie of the cliffhanger from the previous installment, I, like many readers, was unsure how these new events would play out. Through the course of the first book, it was becoming clear that Nettie Rhett was the Shadow. What the Shadow is is still a work in progress, as are the powers that come along with being such an entity. Nettie Rhett is still working out all the kinks of being the Shadow, and while many questions have been [...]

    • 2.5 stars. It was okay with elements of good. My problem with this was Rhett/ Nettie. Her whole 'I'm a man and I'm in love with some and hate the rest' attitude.

    • As you may know from my review, I *LOVED* Wake of Vultures, book one in this series about the Shadow. This installment, Conspiracy of Ravens, hit me in a lot of the same feels, but this time, it felt a little less polished. The plot took longer to spool up to where the action would really start -- the first 50-60% of the book was strictly traveling to the location where the main plot would actually begin to create the real action. This book had a lot more setup, creating some new threads for fut [...]

    • I would like to start this review off by saying that this was written by one of my most favorite authors and despite the following review, I still feel that way.This book was written well. It has a good general story going on and a great description/feel of the book. 99% of the characters and interesting and complex. My mind is completely, 100% in 1800's Texas when reading and I love it.But I strongly dislike the main character. There may be slight spoilers going forward.I really liked Nettie. S [...]

    • Gender and sexual awakenings in a fantasy version of the old west as we continue the story of Nettie Lonesome, now Rhett Hennessey and the Shadow.Nettie comes back to herself after discovering she can shift into a huge vulture-like bird to find that she has a new mission. And a new identity, as she finally realizes that Rhett isn't just a disguise, but the identity that she wishes going forward. If nothing else, Rhett is a stubborn man. After reuniting with old friends he heads out of his part o [...]

    • Full Review at Tenacious Reader: tenaciousreader/2016/12.5/5 starsDISCLAIMER: I normally write spoiler free reviews. In this case I really wanted to talk about some of the diversity features of Conspiracy of Ravens. There may be spoilers in regard to that aspect of the book.Unfortunately, Conspiracy of Ravens just did not work as well for me as Wake of Vultures (which was an unexpected hit for me last year). I felt the over all pace of the story was slower. In the first book, I loved getting to [...]

    • Every book from Lila Bowen (Delilah Dawson) is a gift. Each is full of flawed, raw, beautiful characters and lots of glorious violence. Conspiracy of Ravens is the second book to feature Rhett's continued adventures as the Shadow, and this was one hell of a ride. The thing I love most about Rhett is that he's stubborn, decisive when he ought to be a little more thoughtful, hot-headed, amd he refuses to live his life by anyone's terms but his own. He's not your typical hero, and that makes him mi [...]

    • Received an ARC copy for review.Holy heck this pretty damn good. A great sequel for sure. The western writing was still about difficult and annoying to read at times. The lingo just bores me, but the overall story was just phenomenal. Paranormal beings, alchemists, humans, magic, sexism, racismjust full of so much that builds this story up.Nettie is still working hard as a Ranger, but she has finally embraced being the Shadow. She know goes by a new name -- Rhett Hennessy Walker. She is still st [...]

    • It was nice to Rhett finally discovering himself. I don't like the guy half the time, because he's an ass, but that could be just me.I still love Winifred so much, tho.

    • So happy I FINALLY got my hands on this book!!! I had been waiting for it to appear in my local library for ages. It was worth the wait, eeeeven though I think I liked the first book moreAgain, that is not to say I didn't like the second installment!! It's just I think because the first book was so different to anything I've read before, and so fun and engaging that I just had hoped that the second would leave me feeling the same way. But since I've 'been' to this world before, I obviously didn' [...]

    • Esta segunda parte no me ha llamado tanto la atención como el primero.Me ha faltado acción y el malo malísimo me ha dejado indiferente.Y en vez de cazar monstruos se ha centrado más en la vida amorosa o parecido. De repente le salen rollos nocturnos de la nada.=_=Seguiré leyendo pero espero que cambie la dinámica.

    • As always this review can also be found on my blog: thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress4.5 stars.I received a free copy of this book courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Conspiracy of Ravens starts directly after the events at the end of Wake of Vultures. Continuing Nettie/Rhett’s story. And, you can find my review for the first book !!HERE!!As I mentioned in my review of the previous book, along with the story being told it was also about Nettie/Rhett’s journey and the endin [...]

    • I liked this even more than the prequel.Such a diverse cast of characters with basic human motivations and weaknesses. Fantastical and historical (in its way) all at once. Smart.I can't wait for the sequel.

    • I loved almost everything about Wake of Vultures, the first book in The Shadow series by Lila Bowen. I loved the protagonist, the world it was set in, and the side characters. With the cliffhanger ending I knew I needed to read the next one as quickly as possible. When I got an early copy of Conspiracy of Ravens, the second book of the series, I was initially ecstatic. So why, then did it sit at a measly 7% read on my kindle for months and months on end?Because Conspiracy of Ravens in no way hol [...]

    • This book gives me mixed feelings. So I'm going to break down my likes and dislikes and try to formulate something coherent along the way. Lila Bowen does an excellent job creating the world in which these characters exist and it's precisely this reason that when I encounter things I'm not a huge fan of I can move past them. Because I understand the world, I get a strong sense of why the characters act the way they do.So the world, it's a crazy tangle of wild west, meets, vampires, and culture b [...]

    • So, another Shadow. My thesis for the review is that I'm committed to reading the third one when it comes out.What works for this entry is the contnued journey in this wild, vast, imaginitive setting. As with the first book, the author gives a voice to marginalized voices, and empowers the characters, and I am in full support of these people finding their humanity, and, simultaneously, supernatural abilities. Ooh, paradox! More please. The suspense and flow at the denoument were very satisfying. [...]

    • This sequel to Wake of Vultures starts where the cliffhanger of book 1 ended. Nettie/Rhett is an unusual hero- a half black/half American Indian teenage orphan, who ran away from abuse and found a home among the Rangers- a group defending people from supernatural predators. Nettie found herself more comfortable in men's clothing, working with and acting like a man (Rhett), and she/he continues as such in this book, acknowledged as a man except by a few who know his/her secret. He experiences a s [...]

    • *Source* Library*Genre* YA, Western, Paranormal*Rating* 3.5*My ThoughtsConspiracy of Ravens is the second installment in author Lila Bowen née Delilah S. Dawson's The Shadow series. The story picks up right where Wake of Vultures left off. Rhett Hennessy née Nettie Lonesome, had just launched himself off a cliff in order to embrace his two-natured self. Rhett discovers that he can become a giant bird. After losing himself as a fearless bird who is the predator, and not the prey for what appear [...]

    • I love these books so much! One of my favorite protagonists of all time! Fantasy western is my new favorite genre.

    • I started this and to halt. My friend and sister want to read the series together and I have to wait for them to catch up! Coming back very soon, precious. Very. Soon.

    • This series keeps ending each book cliffhangers! Its weird uniqueness is kinda captivating but so strange. Truly weird West at its weirdest and also its queerest. Look for an increase in gay, lesbian, and bisexual characters. Better than the first book . 4 out of 5 stars for being so weird and a slow middle.

    • Ahoy there me mateys! This novel is the second in The Shadow series, which is an awesome western fantasy. If ye haven’t read the first book, wake of vultures, then ye might want to skip this post, grab yer horses, and ride out to the nearest dry goods store to get yerself a copy. Worth the read. If ye keep reading this log then ye have been forewarned and continue at yer own peril.Well, Lila Bowen has done it again. This book was a wonderful continuation of the story of Nettie/Rhett. The first [...]

    • Conspiracy of Ravens starts off right where Wake of Vultures ended and change is the name of the game for Nettie/Rhett in more ways than one. She has accomplished her quest and defeated the Cannibal Owl, but is now more than what she once was and has to come to terms with her new reality and identity as she finds herself on a whole new quest.Watching Nettie transition to Rhett and finally become more or less comfortable in his own skin was an interesting process. The confidence he gained by maki [...]

    • I think this is more like three stars for plotting, but extra star for unique setting and focus on diversity.I rather wanted to slap Rhett quite a few times in this book for getting wrapped up in his pride. He admits to being ornery toward the end of this book, but he seriously takes that trait to new levels. Perhaps it's that I identify too much with his unwillingness to try anything that he hasn't decided on or come up with himself, LOL. The relationships in this second book start to get reall [...]

    • Since the first book had so much to do with the protagonist's realization of their gender identity, or lack there of, I was hoping that this book would be a further exploration of that turmoil. After all, the beauty of having a transgender (and biracial and bisexual) protagonist is that we get to explore these themes. But instead there was just a lot of complaining about the weakness of the female body, and the weakness of women in general. To be fair, this character lives in a world where for t [...]

    • Now that Nettie has transformed into Rhett, he wants nothing more than to get back to the Rangers and his friends and keep on fighting monsters with them. But the Shadow has other ideas. Knowing that he has to follow his destiny, Rhett and his friends embark on a new adventure to rid the world of evil. Will he survive this time? Hard to say, since he doesn't even know what he's up against. Another fun book! I liked the new characters introduced, and can't wait for the next one.

    • This book is amazing. Fun, super diverse, urban fantasy set in the historical American West (with a twist). Heartfelt and suspenseful. Incredibly unique and creative. Rhett is a wonderful character that I have truly come to love.
