I'm a dystopian/ post-apocalyptic books addict, so it was really easy to know I could enjoy Black Feathers, just looking at the cover. The title doesn't give clues about the post-apocalyptique setting, but the cover definitively has some good ones! (lucky me, the blurb is appealing)

It is the Black Dawn, a time of environmental apocalypse, the earth wracked and dying.
It is the Bright Day, a time long generations hence, when a peace has descended across the world.
In each era, a child shall be chosen. Their task is to find a dark messiah known only as the Crowman. But is he our saviour – or the final incarnation of evil?

At 25%. So far, it's perfect. There are 2 sides in the story, from a pre-apocalyptic point of view and from a post one. There's a prophecity which adds an interesting atmosphere, and the pre-events feel really realistic (I want to go buy some canned foods).
For the moment, it's the better apocalyptic story I read, I'm interested in the characters and there are some perfect sentences! I hope it will continue like this all along the book :)
