It's artsy and very pleasing to the eye. As well as being a good representation of the story. Both in the visual representation as well as the overall mood it gives off.
So where in the world do I begin with this review? Why have I never read anything by this author before? This is a serious oversight that I will be correcting in the very near future.
This book was HEARTBREAKING. This book was COMPLEX. This book was VIOLENT. This book made me CRY. This book made me ANGRY. This book RIPPED ME T ...more

I'm very conflicted on Four Crows on one hand I liked even loved certain parts of it and on the other hand there were parts of it that I didn't necessarily care for or enjoy and no it's not the dark parts.

Elliott is supposed to be a tortured hero but it felt to me like more unnecessary angst than anything. Where Maggie is concerned I did not like the choices she made, I felt the ...more

Elliott is a broken shell of a m ...more
