Review of The Merciful Crow
Review (4.25 Stars): The Merciful Crow kept me on the edge of my seat with its well-written story and a strong heroine that you will instantly be rooting for. Fie was part of a group called The Crows, whose job it was to come and take the bodies that succumbed from the deadly plague. Even though The Crows perform the duty that no one else wants, they are treated horribly by their fellow citizens. When Fie’s father makes a deal to protect the prince, everything changes and puts everyone she cares about in jeopardy.
This was a great start to a brand new series and I can’t wait to see what happens for Fie in the next book. She had already lost so much at the beginning of this story and by protecting the prince and his body double, she puts her own life in jeopardy. This story was well-written, suspenseful and I couldn’t keep turning the pages fast enough. I still have to process everything that happened and I know that Fie will always do what is expected of her.
