The Raven Tower by Ann Leckie · Book review

⇠ View all reviews

The Raven Tower tells the story of a god who lives in a rock. These small gods take the forms of forests, animals and other entities and are sustained by the prayers and offerings from people.

This particular god narrates its own story, as well as the story of Eolo, who visits the town of Vastai, where the Raven god lives. It's an interesting concept but also a bit tiring to read because the rock god narrates it as though it is talking to Eolo with a lot of "you did this, you did that".

While it is quite unique, for that reason I will give it a 4/5 since it did make it feel like it was dragging a bit at times.
