The Merciful Crow Reviews

    A complex system of magic, a fascinating cast of characters, and an entrancing romance make The Merciful Crow a can't-miss debut. Sabor is a kingdom built on injustice, and Fie and her Crows suffer the worst of it as the lowest caste, dedicated to mercy killings of a plague that affect...

    I don?t know how to start this review except to start with this book is amazing!!!! And if this is not on your to-read shelf you are missing out. The only problem with this book is I read it too early and have to wait to have the actual copy in my hands and waiting for the sequel. ...

    I was incredibly excited for this book, and it was one of my most anticipated reads for 2019, so I was ecstatic when I received an e-arc of this book allowing me to read it early. Unfortunately, it was not quite what I expected. Overall, this is a great book. The world building is ...

    I had the privilege of reading this one early. This is a big book, my friends. This book is really special. Fie is one of my favorite heroines ever, the system of magic uses TEETH, the world building is SO BRILLIANT, the boys are ADORABLE RASCALS, the Crows are so cool, and there's ...

    *I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review* I was rather impressed by this book! I thought that the magical world was extremely well-developed and I felt connected to the characters. At times, the world was a little too complicated for me to follow, t...

    This book felt so different - the way it read, the characters, the world. It was so unique and whilst there was so much to the world building I loved how more and more was revealed as I went along. Fie is a firecracker, I love her. ...

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review - thank you! This book was AMAZING. I feel like I?ve said that about quite a few books lately, and I want to assure you all that I am a harsh critic! But I loved the characters in this novel, and ? surprisingly for a fantasy n...

    Crows have long suffered under the reputation of being *bad* but I?m so glad they?re finally getting the representation they deserve. Somewhere, in Ketterdam, Kaz Brekker is nodding approvingly although it might be because he just plucked out someone?s eyeballs ...

    Oh my friends. This book is breathtaking. My only regret in reading it so early is that it's not published yet, so I can't buy about 50 copies for all the writers and YA fantasy lovers in my life. (Next holiday season, hopefully). Let's start with worldbuilding: from the first page...

    2.5 I had a lot of mixed feelings for this novel upon finishing it. I think for one overhype played a key role in my disappointment. It seems to be effecting a lot of my recent reviews/ 2019 reads, and it leaves me with this empty feeling. There's a wonderful world surrounding TMC, ...

    *This arc was provided to me by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* 3.5 Stars. Boy howdy does Fie want to slap this Hawk boy and I'm living for it. She's so perfectly angry at the injustice of this world and the Caste system and I loved cheering her on. She doesn't want to ...

    This book is exceptionally ambitious. Owen is a talent. This isn?t in doubt. The storyline is compelling, the worldbuilding is generally strong, and the social justice plots feel terribly real (more on that in a bit). Fie is a strong-willed, difficult, wonderful, sexually-lib...

    Wait, I seriously get to rate and review my own book? Rad. So my completely unbiased review is that it made me laugh, cry, and single-handedly put Ben & Jerry's grandchildren through med school. And that was just from writing the dang thing. Anyway, I hope y'all like it! I made ...

    I had been in a slump with YA fantasy before I got a review copy of THE MERCIFUL CROW and I am very glad I gave it a shot instead of putting it off! I don't want to spoil anything by talking about the plot, which has a lot of twists and turns right off the bat, but I do want to high...
