Crows by Grace Harney, I assumed when I started reading, was a Young Adult novel, but it turns out that is not actually the case. Yes, it’s teenage characters, but so is Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, and I don’t consider either of those YA.
For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out what was happening in the first few chapters. And as Crows’ story progressed, I was super impressed with everything that unfolded before me. There are several twists that were shocking and frightening, keeping me interested with every turn of the page.
If you’re looking for an unexpected story with believable characters, then you need to read Crows. I give it 5 out of 5 Stars.
About Crows by Grace Harney
Annie Murphy can sometimes tell the future. It’s the past she has trouble with.
When her brother’s witch-girlfriend goes missing days after an invocation ritual, Annie has every reason to suspect him. But he says he didn’t do it, and Annie isn’t about to send another innocent man in her family to jail.
When a confrontation with her brother Johnny turns violent, Annie flees into the worst blizzard to hit the area in years. Led by her Sight, she arrives at a rundown inn where she meets Crow. Another powerful psychic—and a witch that can control her namesake birds—Crow seems to be hated, feared, respected and loved, all at the same time. Soon Annie begins to wonder about things. Like why Crow appears to be connected to every suspicious disappearance over the past fifty years in the small town of Raven City. Why Johnny’s missing girlfriend might be one of them. Why Crow has walked free every single time. And if Annie doesn’t stop her, why she might again.
