The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson is a YA Fantasy story set in a unique world!
“In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything.
That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. Her sister Caliza is busy running the kingdom after their mother’s death, but all Thia can do is think of all she has lost.
But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them.”
I really enjoyed the magical system. The idea between all the crows had me intrigued from the very beginning.
As for the plot itself, I felt like there were a few moments that were a bit bland causing me to really try to make it through some of the history and world building, but eventually I made it through.
There are secrets and danger around every corner in this multiple POV story.
I gave this one 4 out of 5 stars and would recommend it for YA Fantasy readers who want a different type of magic to read from.
