Black Bird of the Gallows (Black Birds of the Gallows, #1)

Beautifully written, Black Bird of the Gallows is a love story filled with curses and people who have seen far to much in their lives that you won't be able to put down. Meg Kassel develops a unique mythology with harbingers of death, beekeepers, and other ancient brings that are mysterious and infinitely more terrifying...maybe because we know so little about them. (Perhaps in another book?!?) I can't wait for the ebook novella, Cleaner of Bones, and the companion, The Beekeeper. Highly recommended for fans of Maggie Stiefvater, Brenna Yovanoff, and readers / critics of the female gothic tradition.
