After reading Mortal Ghost by the same author, which brought me great entertainment, I was in a hurry to download and read“Corvus”. I like the concept of the supernatural aspect of the story and again, the author had woven her story line with many different facets ranging from sexual abuse, rape, verbal and mental abuse, secret organizations, racism and very intelligent and gifted characters. It could have been a very interesting reading but the attention spent on the “virtual wilderness therapy ...more

Ioan Hefin’s voice and tone is perfect for this uniquely original and bizarre story. Even though at times he reads it without punctuation, at widely varying speeds, and sometimes with heavy sighs as if he is bored. However, I really loved the matrix-like sound in the background on some of the podcasts. Great job! ‘Corvus’ kept me with the sense of being lost, (perhaps that’s part of the creator’s intention. I’m not sure.), but I find myself listening harder than normal, concentrating and attempt ...more

Another hard book to review. I found how much I liked it changing drastically as I read it, and I suspect I will have to re-read this again to totally make sense of it.

I think my main problem with it really was there wasn't a clear and coherent explanation what the simus are: Mutants? (perhaps, but then apparently engineered ones, but then it's made clear that they appear randomly too. This plot thread is a bit tatty!)? Aliens? The next stage of humanity? Some are telepaths, but what are the oth

Promising start where the author depicts 2 parallel worlds. Gripping and keeps me curious because I thought that somehow when I read on, I will be able to make sense of whether one world was in the past, the future or concurrent. But as one keeps on reading, the answers were not forthcoming. Confusing and yet mysterious, without a very satisfying answer at the end.

This book is too abstract for me to appreciate it. But I enjoyed the style of writing and the realistic emotions portrayed.
