Release Date: July 9th 2019
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything.
That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. Her sister Caliza is busy running the kingdom after their mother’s death, but all Thia can do is think of all she has lost.
But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them.
When I read the synopsis for The Storm Crow I was intrigued. I really loved the writing! I thought the characters were well written. I think the giant crows was a very unique idea. I enjoyed this book but I do wish there was a little more world building. I was very excited about the crows but they kinda got pushed aside. I’m hoping book 2 will have more about them. Overall, this was a quick, interesting read.
My Favorite Quotes
“Be careful. You’re dangerously close to sounding like this girl I used to know. Tongue as sharp as a crow’s talons, menace to authorities everywhere, about this tall.”
I’d pushed unwaveringly, and when I had met a wall. I’d shattered it.
They were like wolves looking for a weak spot, their postures rigid in preparation to strike and scramble up the ranks.
His eyes, normally bright as the sun on the ocean, looked dull. Like something was missing.
Kalyn Josephson is a Technical Writer in Silicon Valley, which leaves room for too many bad puns about technically being a writer. She grew up in San Luis Obispo, CA, but now lives in the Bay Area with four awesome friends (because it’s the Bay and she’d like to be able to retire one day) and two black cats (who are more like a tiny dragon and an even tinier owl). When not writing YA Fantasy, she loves baking, reading, playing sports, and watching too many movies.
