After reading Episode 2 of the Chronicles of Steele: Raven series, I’ve decided it is one of my favorite serials.
We continue to follow Raven Steele on her journey to protect young Darius. I love all of Pauline’s characters. Darius’s personality is beginning to emerge as he learns to trust Raven, and I feel just as protective of him as Raven does. During Captain Jack Grant’s initial encounter with Raven, I detected a thread of admiration for Raven, and it will be interesting to see if he will follow that thread and help protect her and Darius or remain loyal to the guard.
I admire Pauline’s ability to blend steampunk and fantasy so flawlessly. The world she created feels real. It speaks to her abilities and creativeness, and I will no doubt be a lifelong fan of Pauline Creeden.
I’m already looking forward to Episode 3.
