5/5 stars- A moving, beautiful story that will stay with you long after you've finished the book January 7, 2018 Every now and then, you come across a book that finds its way into your heart, and stays there, earning a place on your bookshelf among “favorites”. Neal’s “Rooks of the Raven” is one of those books. While I agree with some reviewers that the book could have benefited from some tighter editing, this is but a minor distraction that is quickly forgotten as you delve further into the chapters. The story of Abel is beautiful, gut-wrenching, sensitive, and horrifying, all at the same time. It stays with you long after the book has ended. I found myself putting the book down at times, needing to take little breaks from it, overcome with emotions as Neal takes us on this incredible journey of human suffering, sacrifice, unconditional love, strength, courage and despite it all, HOPE. The characters take on a life of their own and fill the pages, chapter after chapter, propelling the reader forward. When the book ends, you wish there were more pages to turn….. Neal’s ability to capture the raw emotions of his characters as he takes you through their lives, deserves praise. You will find yourself celebrating their victories just as much as you’ll cry through their pain, and agonize when life appears to defeat them. Despite all the messages of human suffering, pain, grief, and cruelty, Neal manages to beautifully balance these out with strength, courage, perseverance, hope and love. A fantastic debut. Respect, brother! Can’t wait to read your next book. -Sylvia Ellis
5/5 stars This was an amazing story told with exciting plot twist that could have you in tears. This is currently one of my favorite reads of the year so far. 5 stars!-Maurice
3/5 stars I found this book hard to read. I'm not sure if it was because of an extreme editing failure or the weird cadence of the narration and dialog. Even if it was written the way Abel would talk, a little punctuation would have been helpful. The story it told was horrific; the brutality and hatred made it difficult to read, sad and depressing. I read books for enjoyment and I did not find this book enjoyable.-Robyn M
4/5 stars The plot and the story line were really good. I actually almost starting crying reading it, and I really don't get too emotional when reading. I gave it four stars because of the editing and grammar issues which to me, distracted from the overall work and was hard to get into at first. I wasn't sure if it was written that way to evoke the sense of Abel, the slave, writing this as her story, or if it just needed a professional edit. I also am not the biggest fan of books written in the present tense, but the story made up for it.-LLM

5/5 starsThis Author paints a vivid detailed story! The descriptions pull you in and you feel like you are there! I look forward to reading other books as this was a very exciting read.... suspenseful, thought provoking and an all around good read.-Kelly Hines
5/5 stars Franklin Neal has a way with words. He conveys,the terror of a forming seeing person who goes blind in an accident. The character of Syble takes it as it comes everyday. Her mother’s involvement with a complicated case puts Syble in danger. I don’t want to give away too much to the plot except to say that it is suspenseful. Take the time to read Franklin Neal’s Second Book.-Toni Crow
5/5 stars I am in awe with this story. Smitten by both Syble and her mother and the plot. I love how the author captures each moment with engrossing prose. A quick easy read, highly recommended.-Dove
