Product description


One of the most exciting, exceptionally crafted fantasy debuts I've ever read. I did not want to leave this world! Absolutely breathtaking.--Claire Legrand, New York Times-bestselling author of Furyborn

The Merciful Crow is an intense, romantic adventure with unforgettable magic and a ferocious heroine I'd gladly follow down a long, dark road.--Tessa Gratton, author of The Queens of Innis Lear

The Merciful Crow series will appeal to fans of Leigh Bardugo, Kristin Cashore, Sabaa Tahir and Christelle Dabos (the Mirror Visitor Quartet). --Publishers Weekly

A passionate blend of adventure and intrigue wrapped around strong worldbuilding... Memorable and filled with diverse characters with fluid sexualities and identities.--Publishers Weekly, starred review

Rich, harrowing, and unafraid to tackle discrimination--perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Tomi Adeyemi.--Kirkus, starred review

Elevated by a fresh dialect-tinged voice and creative world-building that calls to mind issues of today.--Booklist
An excellent next read for fans of Leigh Bardugo, Kristin Cashore, and Moira Young.--School Library Journal


A young chieftain from a lowly caste of mercy-killers must rely on her wits and bone magic to smuggle the crown prince to safety in this YA fantasy debut.
