On Ravyn’s Wing is a work of romantic fiction in the paranormal and time travel genres, and was penned by author Mary-Lynn Cordero. Forming the opening novel in the Sidesteps Through Time series, this first story focuses on history professor Farrel McQuaid, a mild-mannered man with a passion for reading about days gone by. But when Farrel finds himself slung backward into 1813, the cutthroat life of piracy is far from his home comforts. Here he meets Ravyn Flynt, a fierce woman pirate who’s fought harder than most for her captaincy. Though the unlikely pair begin to bond, they both have their own quests to fulfill, which may eventually tear them apart for good.
Written for adults due to its explicit sexual situations, this is a deceptively wholesome romance set amid some of the most violent times in world history on the high seas. Farrel is a gentle soul with modern sensibilities, and it was really interesting to see such a great role reversal with Ravyn taking the powerful and violent alpha role with gusto. Both characters are exceedingly well-drawn, their motivations and emotions expertly put forward through dialogue and narration. Author Mary-Lynn Cordero also takes time to fully develop the other plotlines around the relationship, making a fully realized story with tales of vengeance, acceptance, secrets, and of course romance. Overall, On Ravyn’s Wing offers something quite unique in the romance reading experience, and comes highly recommended for fans of historical crossovers, strong female heroines and thrilling revenge stories.
