She saw The Raven in her dreams. Now her life’s a nightmare.

No matter how hard she tries, Rebekah just doesn’t fit in at her prestigious private school. The cruel, privileged students ridicule and bully her every day. And instead of standing up for herself, Rebekah retreats into a dark, unsettling world of nightmarish visions . . .

In her dreams, a cloaked figure she calls The Raven gives her a chance to turn the tables on her tormentors, and exact bloody revenge. At first, she secretly relishes the power, but then Rebekah discovers her dreams have terrifying consequences in her waking world: The Raven’s brutal justice is real . . . and somehow Rebekah must
find a way to stop it.

Echoing the gothic horror of Edgar Allan Poe, The Raven unlocks deep truths about bullying, self-worth, and the price of revenge.

"Edgar Allan Poe's poem, 'The Raven,' is used in such a creative manner . . . adds to the mystery."Screencraft

"Lovers of horror novels underpinned with a touch of romance and blended with a gripping tale of high school life . . . nightmares, vengeance, love, and evil will love The Raven by Dani Lamia and Gwendolyn Kress. The urban storyline coupled with the colorful descriptions of the events made the plot appear to be a contemporary Hollywood horror movie." Keith Mbuya, Reader's Favorite
