Crooked Raven was but the beginning. Carrion Crow scales new heights beneath the staggering storm of prophecy that could cleave apart the Island’s future either resurrecting it or damning it forever. The line between hero and villain blurs in a dizzying dance as the Verdandi siblings face down a Crown not yet through haunting the dead. Winner takes all, but when the blood is washed away will there be anyone left standing to claim it?

An epic finale that will have you more curious than ever to read book three, a bridge tying together the ending with the once upon a time…

Carrion crow is a fantastic book and a fantastic way to continue this adventurous story, the character development is strong and you fall even more in love with your favorite characters. You will learn that not every story or person isn't as simple as they seem, you are reminded how messy life is and what made your beloved characters the people they are. The ending is so wonderful and I can't wait to read about the backstory to this whole series, this author will not let your favorite characters down!

Oh my goodness! I loved this book almost more than the first one out of this series! There is so many plot twists that I didn’t see coming but that kept me on the edge of my seat, and wanting to find out more! If you are looking for another series, I highly recommend this one!

Carrion Crow by Talis Jones is a continuation of the adventure from Crooked
Raven. I would divide the plot into three parts. The first is espionage and intrigue. The second is the gathering of forces for battle. The third is an all-out battle for control of Oneiroi. The story reached a crescendo as the plot wound through these each part, becoming totally gripping as opposing forces charged into battle.
The author’s description of the characters made a very vivid picture in my mind. I am still thinking about some of them. Jones was especially adept at recounting the thoughts of the characters, and revealing the motivations behind these thoughts.
Several themes were brought out in Carrion Crow. We learn personal vengeance can be dangerous and destructive even to the avenger. Abilities are rightly portrayed as gifts, as in the line describing those gifted with magic (paraphrased), “. . . their power is but a gift, something given, not taken or made . . . .“ When the battles have been fought to the end, Adrianna illustrates a theme of enduring friendship and forgiveness, even to former enemies. Though not a highly developed theme, a brief revelation of what might be meant by the obscure phrase “By the blood” also piqued my interest.
Overall, my impression of Carrion Crow is very positive. Sentences were easier to read than those in Crooked Raven, and written in a beautiful style. The first part of the book seemed to drag a little. It seemed to take the avengers an inordinately long time to get it together and start avenging. You should read Crooked Raven before Carrion Crow. The characters and the struggles each has will make much more sense if you do. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
