Book Review

Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy

RT Rating

Smith-Ready has outdone herself with the second book in the Aspect of Crow trilogy. Events unfold quickly but with enough backstory for new readers to grasp what's happening. The characterization is impressive. Book one focused primarily on the heroine; now we see the action through other characters as well. Readers will relate to these sympathetic people as they face heartbreaking challenges.

People of Asermos possess
animal magic. Rhia is a crow, which means she has the ability to guide
the spirits of the dead. Her husband, Marek, is a wolf.

Their village is attacked by
the Descendants, those who have
forsaken the spirits. Asermos is
victorious, but the Descendants
retaliate by attacking neighboring Kalindo, killing their elders and
taking survivors to be sold as slaves. Rhia's newborn son and husband
are kidnapped as well, and it
seems the war is just beginning.
