Review: Black Dove, White Raven

White Dove, Black Raven - John Symonds

I received a copy from Netgalley.


I was very excited when I got the Netgalley approval for this title. I read Code Name Verity by the same author and absolutely loved it, but unfortunately, for me this book is a DNF. It was a struggle to get to the first 100 pages and I'm struggling to get past more.


I'm just not connecting with the characters, and the plot is very very slow. Beautifully descriptive, I like the friendships between the characters but I'm just got getting much out of it other than its just okay. It's not gripping my attention and I'm just not into the story. It's not a bad book by any means, I think this one may just be too complex for me at the moment. I have purchased a paperback copy and may pick it up again in the future.


Thank you to Netgalley and Egmont for approving my request to view the title.
