We know you’ve been waiting for Lila Bowen’s MALICE OF CROWS ever since CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS (US | UK | AUS) left you on the edge of your seats. Get ready for another death-defying mission armed with nothing more than two wings and a gun.
Rhett has just shut down a terrible enterprise running on the blood of magical folk, but failed to catch the dark alchemist behind it. Now, he must make the ultimate transformation if he has any hope of stopping the alchemist or fulfilling his destiny; he must become the leader of a new Rangers outpost—the Vagabond Monster Posse.
To save his friends, and the lives of countless others, he’ll first have to lead them on a mission more dangerous than anything they’ve ever faced.
“Bowen’s Wake of Vultures overflows with imagination and voice, channeling shades of Stephen King’s Gunslinger and Western classics like Unforgiven. Nettie Lonesome is sure to become one of the iconic characters of this generation. This book puts you under its spell and will not let you go!”— Jason M. Hough
