First line: Ravens Love Riddles.

This is a good book. It has ravens. How cool are ravens? There's a reason Poe's The Raven is a poem everyone knows and most people love.

This book has riddles. Good ones. The dedication is a series of riddles. The answers spell out the name of the person the author honors.

This book has maps. We love maps. Too few books have them. 

The story is engaging and we liked it.
