✻✻ What she doesn’t remember, might be what kills her. ✻✻
Six months ago Coralyne James was found beaten and clinging to life alongside a desolate country road. Left with a rare form of amnesia, she now struggles through debilitating migraines, and nightmarish visions of a life she can’t recall.
During a routine exam, Coralyne meets Dr. Maxwell Hough who is taking the medical world by storm with his breakthrough neurological treatments. Fascinated by Coralyne’s maladies, Dr. Hough invites her to be a part of a medical trial held at his lab in Valdez, Alaska. Praying three months trapped in the deep snow surrounding Ravyn Manor will hold the key to easing her pain, Coralyne agrees.
For reasons she can’t explain, walking the halls of the manor seems to cause ghostly recollections to claw at the edges of her mind. It’s as if they are leading her to… something. Following their haunting trail, she stumbles onto a series of recordings that reveal a horrifying truth about the respected doctor.
As her blocked memories finally break free, Coralyne is crippled by the fear she’ll never escape the horrors of the Ravyn’s nest.

Caging my head, I bend inward to block each striking blow to my ribs from the darkened toe of a brown boot. The metallic odor of blood clogs my nose and liquid drips down my brow burning my irises before flushing away with the river pouring down my cheeks. A deep muffled voice yells but the words jumble and my eyes only see blurred figures. The person kicking towers above with wide shoulders while a narrower framed person watches from behind. Something swings hard and fast at my face. “No,” I beg, recoiling in protection.
My eyes fly open and muted pain sears through every muscle and tendon before rocketing through my nervous system. Sweat slicks my skin and the bright light scorches my eyeballs.
“She’s awake. Get Doctor Bowman, STAT.”
I shift my head to see who she is but the slight move pulls the tube sticking out of my mouth and my throat burns like someone poured bleach down my esophagus. A garble groan shakes my body amplifying the hurt.
A handsome, young doctor appears in my line of sight. “It’s okay, Coralyne. You’re safe. We’re going to remove the breathing tube. Blink if you understand.”
I analyze his kind eyes and smooth face before allowing my lids to flutter in acquiescence. Anxious to be able to speak because I want to know who in the hell Coralyne is. Come to think of it, who the hell am I?
This is the first time I have read any book by Billie Dale and this will not be my last. I do not know how I had never heard of this author but after reading Rayvn I have no become a fan.
I had no expectations when I first started to read this book but once I started reading I was drawn in from the start and was taken on a mind blowing ride. I must say that right before you get sucked in there is a pause in the story where I had trouble trying to stay involved with the story but once it came back on track OMG it was like a roller coaster.
This psychological ride was done so well that I could actually see it in my mind as if I was watching it on big screen.
The main character in the book is Carolyn is suffering from amnesia after being severally attacked and only can remember the last six months of her life. After being attacked she is debilitated by horrible migraines. At this time she meets Dr. Maxwell Hough a renowned expert in the neurology field. He invites Carolyn to stay at his home in Alaska to be under his care.
This is where the story jumps out of the book and you will be at the edge of your seat!! You will love this ride and you will be totally surprised about what was really happening because you will not see what is coming.
I can not go into more since I feel like if I do I will not stop writing and I will tell the whole story and I can not spoil anything for you.
I was given this ARC for my honest opinion and my volunteer review.
Thank you Billie Dale for this intense read!!!
