Raven has an unusual gift, or is it a curse: a nose that can smell almost anything. In magical medieval Ausland, she must defeat a dragon, an army of giants, and evil wizards. When their magic is destroyed, Raven must come to terms with her mistakes, and make amends for them. Raven’s Gift is a complex story that is told frankly and simply. It may deserve an “R” rating, for being earthy.
