I'm really, really proud of all the work that went into this book, and I can't wait to share it with you all. Thia's journey has meant a lot to me, and hearing what it's meant to others has been incredible. I hope you're all ready for a lot more magic, action, and cute little crows (or rather big crows, I suppose).

The Storm Crown was by far one of my favourite reads of last year, it completely blew me away, so I am very excited for the next instalment, to the point I was searching for the UK publisher to try and get an ARC (somehow), one day I will find out how ahahaha!

I am happy this is just a duology, I don't think my heart can take anymore.

I was always on the edge of my seat with this one. There was betrayals, battles, political espionage, the list goes on. I don't think there was ever a slow moment.

I really loved the unity of the characters. They may disagree and banter but they always found ways to help one another. I think with Thia's depression that will be really helpful. All the characters were complex too, not

I am a huge fan of The Storm Crow and told everyone I know to read it and kept on talking about how brilliant it is. I was over the moon to receive an arc copy of The Crow Rider and so excited to read it and see how this story ends.

I was not let down. Kalyn Josephson is an incredible writer. She made me feel so many emotions and had me clinging to the edge of my seat. I rarely knew what was going to happen next and completely enjoyed the ride (pun intended!).

I love ALL the characters in

I was lucky enough to read an early copy of this and HOLY CROW. I couldnt put it down, I was so desperate to see what happens to Thia and Co. I wasnt disappointed! THE CROW RIDER is gorgeously written, and its the perfect conclusion to THE STORM CROW. I cant wait to see it out in the world!

*Spoiler free, but spoilers for The Storm Crow*

I adored The Storm Crow so much. It had incredible depression rep, amazing characters, and an amazing world. Thia was stepping onto the path to war at the end of The Storm Crow and I couldn't wait to see what happened next. Trigger warnings: depression, gore, PTSD

I am happy to report that I adored this one just as much as The Storm Crow. It surprised me in a lot of ways, but it was still the same world, with the same characters, fighting the same

I gave the first book in this series three stars. I enjoyed it, but didnt love it. However, I was very excited to see where the second book would take us in the world. I thought that it had all the potential in the world to be an amazing book. I was right. This book was absolutely stunning from beginning to end. I absolutely enjoyed it. So much more than the first one. I know this is a duology, but I am so not ready to leave these characters behind yet.

The Writing
I love Josephsons writing.

You cant scare it with a little rain and wind. Eventually, you and that crow are going to have to spill blood.

WOW. This was AMAZING. Its gonna be a struggle to accurately express my emotions about this book without spoilers, but Im gonna do my best!

Ill admit that I was a bit underwhelmed by The Storm Crow, but I was interested enough in the world and the characters that I knew I wanted to read this sequel. And WOW, it was SO MUCH BETTER than
