The second of three I knocked out last weekend.
A YA Fantasy! One of the first ones I've actually not DNF'd in maybe a year or more? I think the caste system really sold me, and the world felt fairly tangible and real for a YA. The romance also took quite some time to set up, which I appreciated. It took a definite back seat for most the novel, a huge win.

After restarting this and taking a slow pace with reading,the Caste System finally started making sense. Overall the plot is intriguing and the caste system is actually really fascinating. Part 1 and 3 are what gives this a pick rating for me, while part 2 was bogged down with the instalove. But I do like all the characters! I look forward to book 2.

Much like this blurry picture, it‘s kind of a shame too, because there was a lot going on here, all of it intriguing! By the end of the book, I can only remember bits and bobs none of which I could spin into a basic book summary. I do plan to continue with the series, but with hesitation.

That unfortunate situation where this was both an incredible and terrible read all at the same time. Beautifully designed, I felt like the author‘s pen was a little to heavy - mastering large story scapes but without those pesky narrative explanations vital to building fragmented thoughts into memorable plot lines.

I am so beyond confused with this book. The caste system seems so cool but I am just so confused. And my mind is having issues really focusing on what is being written. I keep re-reading sentences and paragraphs and Im still not understanding. It‘s making it frustrating to read. I want to like this, I like the caste system idea but I don‘t get why it‘s not making any sense to me.

GrilledCheeseSamurai It's a sweet ass cover. This has piqued my curiosity but maybe I'll just wait on it until your final judgement... 4mo

This book has been publicized pretty widely on social media, and I had some high expectations. The story was interesting in parts, but my mind would wander in many other areas which is a red flag that a book isn‘t holding me captive. The relationship between Jasimir and Tavin is endearing but for the most part the book is predictable, but still ok.

Really ended up enjoying this. Was a little confused by the different castes at first, but it really was a great book in the end. I wanted to punch people so many times 😅

Excellent YA fantasy were all, magic user or not, belong to a bird caste system from the royal phoenix to the plague undertaker crows. We follow the prince feeling the evil queen with his hawk bodyguard double hidden among a band of crows.

‪TOMORROW! This beautiful @bookbrag Henry Holt #YA book finally hits stores!‬
‪AND if you are in #Seattle come to Third Place Books (Lake Forest Park) and hear the rad Kendare Blake put Margaret Owen on the spot and quiz her about murderous birds, her monstrous cats, and Barf.‬
I can‘t wait.

SFF challenge for #24in48, I'm hoping to finish my arc of this upcoming YA fantasy this weekend! I've been really enjoying it, 12 bird-named castes each have a type of power (peacock and swan are two, no Crow emoji to match the title), and the Crow witches use teeth to access power. A fantasy take on systemic discrimination, the different responses of the Prince and his guard about being confronted with it deliver an interesting contrast. @24in48

I don't know exactly what to say, it was okay, i think. I liked the plot and the characters but i don't know... i felt like nothing was happening through almost all the book. I loved the battles and the writing, and Fie is an amazing girl, but i guess i would like to have seen more. I still want to read the next book, i need to know if Fie finally gets what she wants.

I don't know if it's a pick but it's not a “so-so“. It's just a normal book???

After nearly losing my purse & getting trampled to get this #arc at #bookcon, I jokingly said “This book better be one of the best I‘ve read in a long time...”

It was.

•More ambitious than a lot of YA
•Gripping plot
•3D & realistic chars
•Inventive Magic system
•Topical (w/o pandering)
•Balance of drama & humor
•A cat named Barf , who I‘d die for ♥️

5/5. Add to your TBR. Comes out July 30th.

As if this glorious ARC couldn‘t get any more wonderful, how the character deals with her period & contraceptive is addressed! (Also bonus for mentioning that women use birth control for reasons other that contraceptive). The protag in this uses it for both. We need more of this in fantasy & ESPECIALLY YA fantasy. Props to Margaret Owen!

Tagged “The Merciful Crow” because I nearly lost my purse and got trampled due to the crappy line organization awaiting it. Either way, my #BookCon #bookhaul. Three are ARCs. I would have gotten more ARCs, but after the mess that was “The Merciful Crow” line, I had reached my limit for cons. Still, I only ended up spending about $20 as a whole. Not bad!

Fascinating world building and character development, and the book tackles hard subjects thoughtfully (though sometimes a bit too obviously), without fantasizing about an easy way out. I look forward to reading more by Margaret Owen!

Looks intriguing, but it's been a long time since I've been other than disappointed with a new name in YA fiction. I'm so on the fence with picking up this one.
