Wow this is hard to rate. Bloodraven is so long naturally I could give many parts different ratings. The first chapter like many other reviews have said, is really hard to take. I felt like I need to read something super fluffy and sickeningly sweet now. That being said Bloodraven still managed to get a 4 star rating out of me because the progression of the characters was interesting to read. I can't personally ever feel in any similar situation that Yahlen's feelings towards Bloodraven at the end are anything more than stockholm but it's a book I can pretend whatever I want.
