M. H. Woodscourtabout this book: When his beloved older brother becomes fatally ill, 14-year-old Gwynter chooses to break the Crow King's law against magic and seeks a cure from the wild fae who dwell in the deadly True Wood. His journey will take him to the very steps of the mythical Swan Castle in its ruinous splendor as he flees the king's crows and other fell things who wish to harm him. Joining Gwynter in his quest is bold and quirky Lady Nathaera, the wise unicorn Aluem, and Kive, a fallen fae Gwyn is sworn to kill - but can he bring himself to do so?
Written in the tradition of The Last Unicorn and the Chronicles of Prydain, The Crow King explores the themes of family devotion, loyalty to one's country, and the consequences of disregarding oaths and laws to do what is right. The book is loosely inspired by the life of George Washington, and Gwyn borrows some traits from that great man.
Readers are calling The Crow King "A must read," and "a fast-paced adventure."
