Raven by Stacey Rourke
(The Legends Saga #2)
Publication date: May 26th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal
An infamous love, destined nevermore,
For death could not claim, the enchanting Lenore.
Cursed by the malevolent spirit of the Headless Horseman, Ireland Crane ventures to Manhattan in search of a way to break her soul crushing bond. Instead, she discovers the lines between fact and fiction are blurring once more. Croaking ravens. Telltale hearts. Could the works of Poe be coming to pass with handsome Wall Street Midas Ridley Peolte as their unwilling target?
She walks the Earth, a plague on mankind,
searching for he, her rotted heart doth pine.
Together, the two unknowingly release a dark force death itself could not tame. Surrounded by the unrelenting violence and mayhem they’ve unleashed, Ireland feels her control over the Horseman slipping. Before the beast within consumes her, she and her crew must follow the clues of the dead to right a centuries’ old wrong. Will it be enough to sate the Horseman’s appetite?
Hell hath no fury like a ghoul scorned.

SO WE HAD A CHANCE TO PICK STACEY’S BRAIN
We asked for her 10 influential novels that made/shaped how she felt about writing… here is her top 10 list… in no particular order…
10.) The Monster at the End of the Book-the very first book I ever fell in love with!
9.) Any of Stephen King’s standalone books from the 90s. I have always been a reader, but around the age of twelve I discovered the horrifying wonder that is King’s work. I couldn’t get enough! If it had his name on it, I read it!
8.) Anything by Christopher Pike. During my preteen years I spent hour after hour, day after day absorbed in the YA worlds created by Mr. Pike.
7.) The Casteel Series by V.C. Andrews. Troy, oh Troy, the haunted romanticism of his character still makes my heart ache. The forbidden love, his years watching her from affair—but in a sweet and nonstalkery fashion. To this day I still rank him as my #1 Book Boyfriend.
6.) Twilight, I hadn’t written in years and it was this series that made me want to delve into my own creativity once more. Stephenie Meyer rekindled my passion for writing and I thank her for that!
5.) Divergent. Why? Four. Need I say more?
4.) Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. Holy crap this book grabbed me from the start and refused to let go. It was impossible to put down and I finished it in two days flat. Amazing!
3.) Any of the books by my family at Anchor Group Publishing, I am surrounded by amazing talent there!
2.) Warm Bodies, a zombie in love? That’s my kind of love story! Plus the action/humor blend is a recipe I utilize myself and I appreciate it in other works!
1.) The Hunger Games Series, want to see me go full out fan-girl crazy? It will be over this series. And for the record—Team Peeta all the way!
