Review: Eyes of Crow
Eyes of Crow
By: Jeri Smith-Ready
Review by: Lauren
Where Rhia is from, and the towns that surround it, the people are bound to a spirit who they must serve during their lifetime. From a young age, the leaders in the town believe Rhia's spirit to be Crow, who handles the aspect of death. For a long time, however, Rhia trys to push it away and refuses to go for her Bestowing. After a family death, Rhia realizes she should never have waited and goes off to recieve her gift. While training in the next town, she finds the meaning of love and death, and how to live life without letting the anguish overcome you.
Eyes of Crow is the first novel in the Aspect of Crow trilogy. For a rather long novel, it moves pretty swiftly. This is a novel that catches your attention and rarely refuses to let go. A unique novel with very universal themes. I would definitely recommend this to all who are interested and I can't wait to read the next two in the series as soon as I can.
I thank Jeri for being kind enough to send me copies. Thank you very much!
Also, if Jeri Smith-Ready rings a bell and you aren't sure why...she also wrote the vampire novel Wicked Game, which I LOVED.
