In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything.

That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. Her sister Caliza is busy running the kingdom after their mother’s death, but all Thia can do is think of all she has lost.

But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them.

I was really surprised. I thought this book was going to blow me away.

The Storm Crow was more about how Anthia, Thia, was dealing with the terrible night that had thrown her into the depression.

I let his words sink in. She did it to hurt me. Because my pain hurt him. Because he cared , more than I wanted to admit

Which was great. I really loved the manner in which Thia surpassed that. The darkness of the depression was strong with this book. But Thia was stronger and I thought that was a great example to show.

Her friendships were amazing. The relationships were greatly developed. The characters were very well thought out. I thoroughly enjoyed the book but I didn’t love it.

She could level kingdoms and massacre families, but she cared for her people. Either that or she was very good at pretending. Considering she was Illucian, I figured the latter.

I can’t really tell you, my fellow readers, why. I just couldn’t get into it.

It’s a hit or miss with fantasy genre. And this one wasn’t either. It wasn’t amazing. But it wasn’t terrible.

Kiva’s warning echoed. “First, Shearen has a boyfriend . Second, he deserved it.”“No doubt. But that’s what I have Kiva for.” One overprotective friend was enough.

I honestly was very blase about it. It was greatly written, greatly developed, greatly everything. I just couldn’t get into it that much.
