“A winter’s day has become a winter’s nightmare…”
Teenage Magda Krol is living in her quiet, Polish village until strange men arrive. She hides in her cellar, and upon emerging realises that they were not thieves, but people evacuating the village because of the harsh weather! She ventures across the frozen wasteland to the next village, in the hope of getting on the next evacuation truck, when she encounters Ukrainian boy Ivan. Together th

I brought home 'After the Snow' and 'One Crow Alone' from the library and decided to read the prequel first. I am so glad I did.

They are totally different books and I disliked 'After the Snow' so much I couldn't read all of it.

'One Crow Alone' has its own distinct style that reminds me of poetry, folk lore, wise-woman knowledge, and an adventure book all rolled into one. Even though it is supposed to be in the future it could very well have been set in the past. They live out in the country whe

In one crow alone by S.D Crockett,the storyline is somewhat complex.Basically the main protagnist named Magda who is left stranded in the village she lived in she meets someone else named Ivan she accompanies him to find her mother and find family.She has to overcome many obstacles that she encounters.I never read the first book(After the snow).But my theory of the theme is that.Although life may get difficult there is always a way out you must stay strong.As to prove this theory of the theme is ...more

Really looking forward to how this series progresses. It was a real rollercoaster ride reading After the Snow.

I was sent this from the publisher in exchange for a honest review.

When I was sent this book I thought it looked really interesting. It wasn't something that I would normally read but I was looking forward to it.

'One Crow Alone' is about a girl called Magda a Polish girl who discovers that her village has been abandoned, with the country in a state of emergency because of the weather and no family left, she decides to make the journey to London to find her mother who is working there. Along th

I feel as if some people get dispirited by a good book which does not posses a fairy-tale ending (like me a little bit) and because of that we completely ignore the greatness of its content.

Just for the people who are doing that.

I really liked the whole concept of this book but i needed to get hooked which at times i didn't.
I recommend it to see your reactions

One Crow Alone is an incredible story about a girl who must overcome the impossible. Magda’s narration is so different from the typical YA post-apocalyptic story. She is facing certain death every day of her life, all by herself, but she is so strong. Magda is practical and focused. She does what she must to survive, to keep living, despite the threat of freezing to death, of never finding her mother, or losing her grandmother. I have so much respect for Magda, and her strength in the face of in ...more

Definitely one to read after reading 'After the Snow' but so good! Great to learn more about Magda, and I enjoyed how the main story was interspersed with the Crow story, and Mary giving the Tell. Made me do a weep!
Gina
3.5 stars. There's something about this book that I really loved. Other parts were very confusing and could have been developed a lot more. Overall, this was a quick and enjoyable read.
Paige Libbert
Not my favorite. For some Tunis would be a lovely read, I'm sure but I found it choppy and personally wasn't a fan of the ending. Cool concept though and an interesting topic.
Carol
This was just as good as After the Snow.
Nicole
"If you have no answer, then make no decision. Sleep on it. When everything stops making sense, then sense is all that's left. It is better, Magda, that you suffer for doing what is right, than for doing what is wrong."

I came to like Magda more later on, but I really had a hard time suspending my belief that she was a 16 year old girl - her thoughts and behaviors were more like that of an 11 or 12 year old.

I have not read After the Snow, so I had no expectations for One Crow Alone. This is the story of Magda, a Polish girl who is working her way to London to find her mother after the snows come and her village is abandoned. Along her journey she meets a boy (of course) named Ivan who vows to help her get to London. A complex story about hope and loss.

This is a prequel to the fantastic After the Snow. I liked this and was engaged with Magda’s story, but I liked After the Snow better. One Crow alone didn’t have the same experimental language of After the Snow and felt more like a traditional dystopian novel. That said, I really do like this author and will keep reading the series.
Alison
Perhaps I would've liked this dystopian prequel better if I'd read "After the Snow" first, which got good reviews from YA lit types.
Brad
A great post-apocalyptic read! I'll definitely be picking up After the Snow.

Look for my full review soon!
