2023 Book Review: The Black Crow Flies

Black Crow Flies by LB Perdan

YA Fantasy, 2023 by LB Perdan, 378 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • Some of the book felt a bit preachy. I’m sure it was intentional as one of our characters is a religious person, but if you’re a reader who is sensitive to being preached at, consider it a content warning. 
  • Some typographical errors in my ARC that will likely get caught/fixed in pub. 
  • Some of the imagery feels borrowed from some other high fantasy. It’s not overdone, but it’s there.

What I Did Like:

  • The dual POV focusing on two people with two very different philosophies was a good way to see both sides of this world. It’s well done and interesting.
  • Great ending to spark interest in book 2. You got enough answers to be satisfied but you want more from these characters! 
  • Characters! They’re deep, flawed, and realistic. I love them all and I want the best for them, even if they aren’t always on the same sides.

Who Should Read This One:

  • Fantasy fans, this one is a beautiful dual POV story with excellent world building.

My Rating: 4 Stars
