The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen
When is it released: July 30th [yes I know it will be out in the world before I post this review, but I really want it and I am only a day or two out haha]
What is it about?: A future chieftain
Fie abides by one rule: look after your own. Her Crow caste of undertakers and mercy-killers takes more abuse than coin, but when they’re called to collect royal dead, she’s hoping they’ll find the payout of a lifetime.
A fugitive prince
When Crown Prince Jasimir turns out to have faked his death, Fie’s ready to cut her losses—and perhaps his throat. But he offers a wager that she can’t refuse: protect him from a ruthless queen, and he’ll protect the Crows when he reigns.
A too-cunning bodyguard
Hawk warrior Tavin has always put Jas’s life before his, magically assuming the prince’s appearance and shadowing his every step. But what happens when Tavin begins to want something to call his own?
Why am I waiting for it: I think it just sounds like a really cool book, and I’ve wanted a copy ever since I missed out on a proof at Bookcon. The three different characters idea intrigues me, and usually I like seeing how these kinds of plot pan out, like how the characters relate to each other and how their stories intersect and stuff. Also, those crows sound vicious and amazing and I am here for some dark and edgy YA.
