Happy book birthday to The Crow Rider by Kalyn Josephson! Ahhhh, way to remind me that I still need to read the first book! I just love the idea behind this series and I’m a huge fan of the covers for these books. I already own the first one, but clearly I need to pick it up and actually read it so I can feel justified in buying this one.
Princess Thia, her allies, and her crow, Res, are planning a rebellion to defeat Queen Razel and Illucia once and for all. Thia must convince the neighboring kingdoms to come to her aid, and Res’s show of strength is the only thing that can help her. But so many obstacles stand in her way. Res excels at his training, until he loses control of his magic, harming Thia in the process. She is also pursued by Prince Ericen, heir to the Illucian throne and the one person she can’t trust but can’t seem to stay away from. As the rebel group prepares for war, Res’s magic grows more unstable. Thia has to decide if she can rely on herself and their bond enough to lead the rebellion and become the crow rider she was meant to be.
