Jane Harper started out as an undercover whistleblower among a group of radical activists butting bulkheads with whaling ships in the Arctic Ocean.

She ended up shipwrecked off the coast of Greenland and teamed with a pair of father-and-son whalers to destroy their own six-hundred-year-old Viking ancestors — resurrected as zombies by an insidious race of intelligent parasites. Quite a lot for even a tough-talking, two-fisted, former military brat like Jane to handle. But winning their battle against the undead Vikings was just the beginning of the war against the parasitic Draugr now that the relentless creatures have escaped their island prison…and seek to turn the earth into a planet of the living dead. With a sturdy vessel under her feet, a do-or-die crew at her side, and weapons of mass monster-destruction in both hands, Jane takes to the hellish high seas to face down zombie whales and an armada of seafaring ghouls.

    Jane Harper sets sail with a crew for the North Atlantic. Something is happening to the whales there. The crew is going to find out what is happening and get a sample. Only the crew gets shipwrecked on an island in the Arctic. They are not alone. The draugr roam the island. The draugr are walking zombies. I got really excited about reading this book even though I have never read the first one, The Sentinel. This book was a let down for me. It was slow going and not a lot of action.

I was expecting to be kept on the edge of my seat with action. This did not happen. There was just a lot of dialect. Makes me think of the country song by Toby Keith “A Little Less Talk and a Lot More Action”. For this type of book I want just that…more action, horror, and for the characters to kick some major ass. If this does not happen than I don’t stick around for the end.

    It seems like every time I read a Jeremy Bishop book, I'm left slightly stunned and utterly amazed at his psychotic genius! I mean really...zombie whales, but strangely it works. How does Bishop come up with this stuff? This book was one messed up Moby Dick meets Alien meets Titanic all rolled up into a big mess of parasitic worm infested, horror ridden goodness. The best part is the feisty Jane returns, although reluctantly to take on the Queen, once more cracking me up along the way.

From the moment The Raven sets sail, it's all out gore and gruesomeness....I think I serious turned green a few times. Overall, a seriously original 2nd book in this horror series. I can't wait for the next book. I'm going to miss Jane until she returns.

    Bishop writes like a sarcastic woman, and we have his wife to thank for it according to the dedication! Thank you mrs. Bishop. Jane Harper might sometimes be TOO sarcastic and hot tempered, but that's how some people actually are. The writing is decent, the short chapters makes the book fly by, and to whomever said that the book didn't have action: did we even read the same book?

Definitely picking up book number three in the series! Bravo Bishop.

    Sequel to the Sentinel, and you should read that book before this one. The Raven is just as enjoyable, although a little less suspenseful and more lighthearted. Plus you get zombie whales. Any book that incorporates zombie whales into the plot deserves to be read. Fun, enjoyable, short, and a page turner. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    I absolutely loved returning to a Jane Harper adventure. She grows stronger with each book and I can't wait to see where she goes next. The story was action packed and hard to put down. The creatures were relentless and fun to read about and the characters felt like family.

    The Raven was even better than the first book The Sentinel. Bishop takes us even deeper into the insanity of this parasitic threat and leaves us at the edge of our seat grinding our teeth wanting more. Excellent read, highly recommended.

    I had little hope for the sequel but it was just as page turning. They’re in the open ocean which is scary without added horror. Whales sometimes sink ships without provocation. Vampire whale!!! Holy shit!!! I’ll think about this book every time I go out in a boat. It was a very original monster. Can these be continued somehow or made into a movie?

    Mini-Review: Great follow up to the first book. Lots of action, snarky humor and zombie whales. Zombies isn't an accurate description of the baddies in this series but it's good enough to catch a reader's interest. If you want a fun, quick story to pass the time, this will work just fine.

    It was fast and entertaining Sci fi all the way. Unbelievable monsters, nightmares are in the making. Ships, whales, zombies, neverending pace, that doesn't let you go. A must read.

    Holy hell! Just a lot of fun. That's all. Exploding harpoons. Katana swords. Vikings. Viking zombies. Whale zombies. Sentient worm bidy snatchers. An island made of ships??? It's nuts! But a lot of fun. It even has a good bar fight ...

When starting this book (Thank you GoodReads First Reads!) I was at a slight disadvantage as I had not read the first one, although I will be fixing that soon. Jane Harper, the snarky punch-you-in-the-face (literally) protagonist is a joy to read. She has typical girl problems, like a left over love/grudge of an over-bearing late father's rules, boy issues, and whether that giant zombie whale wants to eat her or turn her, but she doesn't dwell on things in a manner that bogs down the reader and makes them want to drown the heroine. Jane is smart, sharp, quick tempered, but caring. She has a clear sense of honor and right/wrong, but a delicious sense of humor too. Her viking cohorts are typical viking descendants aka awesome, and are very easy to get attached to despite not being a primary focus. The zombies are both typical and not. You can become infected through a bite, but only if the parasite within transfers over to you. Many 'zombies' or Draugr in this case, are not necessarily dead. A part of the host can still reside alive, like a prisoner in their own mind. Parasites only need skin contact to infect, and oh, parastic zombie wormy things are just plain terrifying on their own. Bishop spins a fun(ny) and terrifying tale that had me just a little cranky whenever I was forced to put it down. Short of age discretion and levels of literary gore tolerance, I would recommend this to just about every one. In fact, I'm going to hunt for the first and then reread this.

    Much better written than book 1, though the author shamelessly references his own works (spotted a copy of Pulse stuffed into his pocket, REALLY?) The vomiting fat lady was a shameless nod to Left 4 Dead's boomer as well, but well written, nonetheless. A fun read.

I'm giving this zombified fun fest 4.5 stars, highly recommended! A great way to spend a day!

Me: I KNOW, RIGHT? ...and that was it, but it really does sum up how much I enjoyed this story. Only thoughts to add after reading the last third would be that the ending was wild and creepy and non-stop. Willem remains my favorite character. And Helena was a great addition. And be warned, it's not over yet.

    I wasn't too sure what I'd think of zombie whales. To my surprise Jeremy Bishop pulled it off flawlessly. 'The Raven' is a creepy, disgusting & sometimes humorous second novel featuring Jane & her battle against the Drauger. Drauger are parasites that take over their hosts essentially creating Zombies that act as a hive mind. Jane & her Viking crew take to the high seas in a whaling ship determined to stop the Drauger & find the missing ships.

    Loved book 2 in this series. I would suggest that you read book one (the Sentinel) before you pick up book 2. Jane Harper is a bad ass lady that is really hard core thanks to her upbringing. She is likeable because she cares about her friends. Willem is a viking that is just as bad ass and likeable. they are fighting zombies, both above the ground and in the ocean. Warm blooded creatures are being infected by the parasite that causes the zombie movements. I don't want to give anything away to a pot Loved book 2 in this series.

    The Raven is a great, action filled sequel to The Sentinel. The Raven had a lot more parasitic zombie action to a large scale. I enjoyed the main characters and liked how Jeremy "Robinson" Bishop continued on the story from The Sentinel. I really enjoyed this read and definitely am looking forward to the next book (if/whenever he gets around to writing it).

    What an absolute thrill ride!!! I couldn't get through it fast enough to find out what happens. The dialogue is snappy, the action fast paced, and the horror suitably gruesome. I love that the book is written from Jane's point of view, so that we get an insight into her funny, slightly warped mind. Found myself snorting with humour frequently at the things Jane thought and said. Can't wait to read the sequel!!!

    I won a free copy of "The Raven" and read it immediately upon its arrival in the mail. I have to admit I was not very impressed with this writer. I think the book would have been better if there had been more character development. I didn't feel any connection to the main character (or any characters for that matter), and the author was not successful in writing from a female, first-person perspective.

    Jane Harper, What a kick ass, smart ass, cute ass heroine. Zombie whales and queen Viking zombies are populating this horror adventure, add to that the father and son Viking team and a few courageous supporting characters. The ending promises a third adventure is forthcoming and I can't wait to see Jane and her friends back in action. Please finish this amazing action-packed trilogy, Mr. Bishop.

    Great horror movie in book form with a truly well-written female protagonist. Jane Harper aka Raven is of course the centerpiece of this worthy second installment. She is hard as nails, yet believably human and her POV is very entertaining. I've always had a weak spot for present tense narrative and, as I've stated in another review, I do like those badass girls! Waiting for the finale!

    I read this book in 2 days. It was very good. I would definitely recommend it. It's the second in a series but you don't necessarily need to read the first one (The Sentinel). I didn't but I'm going to go back and read it now. I'm really looking forward to the next one in the series. Definitely read this. Bishop is a great author and I plan on checking out his other titles.

    This was an interesting read, great action. I really enjoyed the characters especially Jane, she kicks butt and is somebody you would want on your side when fighting parasitic zombies. Some parts are a little descriptively gross, lol, but thats cool. If you like zombies, and action it may be worth checking out. I for one may check out other Jeremy Bishop novels in the future.

    Jane Harper is back and as kick-ass as ever. I listened to this in a day and thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters and action are well written, it is a thrill ride that doesn't stop and makes you long for the next in the series.

    I'm sorry. I HAVE TO give 5 Stars to an author who can make Zombie Whales work in a story. Yes. Whales that are zombies. Simply brill when you combine them with a smart-mouthed chick who can kick butt. We are all waiting for BOOK #3, Jeremy Bishop!

    There was so much going on in this book that I sometimes I had trouble keeping up. Basically non-stop action. But I'm not complaining (okay, maybe just a bit). Is it fantasy is it science fiction? I don't even know and I don't really care either, just bring on the next book already!

    The main character gets no more likeable. There are more fat jokes/shaming/mocking. You'd think with a damn zombie apocalypse on her hands, she'd have more important things to worry about. The zombie whales at least featured more heavily in this one.
