I just loved "Blackbird Falling" by Em Shotwell. What is it about this story that I just love so much... I can't find the words. It's such a different story... not fitting into one perfect genre. It's so unique - so mystical, so beautifully written that I'm always excited to hear that another book related to this "series" is coming out.
If you are a fan of the "mystical" than you need to pick up all the books written by this author. You won't be disappointed and will most likely become instantly

Recommends it for: alternative fantasy fans
Recommended to Molly by: Booksprout
the love of a mother is one of the most powerful things on earth.

even in this dystopian future world, the love of a mother is mighty, even, and perhaps especially, for a mom who has been broken apart by loves, losses, and betrayals

can her heart and her skills help her to save what and who matter most to her?

can she survive if she is unable to do so?

tragic and conflicting adventures

19-year-old Delia is strong-willed, difficult, and relatable broken. She has had the burdens and punishments associated with being female in today’s world thrust upon her, from the best to the very worst.

But throw her daughter in the mix, and the buck stops here.

I adore this (anti)heroine for her attitude, daring, and willingness to do the ugly thing others won’t to protect those she loves.

She had been abandoned by the man she loved and almost destroyed by a monster. Now he is back trying to win her back but she will not be so easy persuaded. Her child has a rare power. How will she deal with it all? Will she let him back into her life? See what will happen next

The book is a good read. The book is a good follow up to Blackbird Summer. The story is well written read. The characters are good. The story first part of the book is light and sweet but takes a dark turn when Gen is kidnapped.

I loved it! Blackbird Falling is a wonderful follow up to Blackbird Summer. The first part of the book is light and sweet but takes a dark turn when Gen is kidnapped. I loved the way Shotwell wove together the story and the world. A must read if you enjoy urban fantasy.
