It had a great idea and a great myth behind it but unfortunately the author chose to deal with a High School Students infatuation with an immortal boy instead of the interesting myths intertwined in this story.

Raven by Allison Van Diepen
Raven is one of those books that you don’t quite know what to expect, but it will leave you breathless. She is in love with zeki but the only ciepen is that she is a mortal and he is immortal.
