Hype Post – The Merciful Crow by Margaret Owen

Title The Merciful Crow (The Merciful Crow #1)

Author Margaret Owen

Description from Amazon

One way or another, we always feed the crows. 

A future chieftain 

Fie abides by one rule: look after your own. Her Crow caste of undertakers and mercy-killers takes more abuse than coin, but when they’re called to collect royal dead, she’s hoping they’ll find the payout of a lifetime.

A fugitive prince 

When Crown Prince Jasimir turns out to have faked his death, Fie’s ready to cut her losses―and perhaps his throat. But he offers a wager that she can’t refuse: protect him from a ruthless queen, and he’ll protect the Crows when he reigns. 

A too-cunning bodyguard

Hawk warrior Tavin has always put Jas’s life before his, magically assuming the prince’s appearance and shadowing his every step. But what happens when Tavin begins to want something to call his own?

Notes About the Description

I like the idea of a caste system and I think the world sounds super interesting. I also really want to see multiple POVs. We have three main characters and I want to see through each of their eyes.

I am also getting all kinds of Wicked Saints vibes from this book. Not that I think they will be super similar, but the set up sound familiar. I enjoyed that book so I hope I will also like this one.

Reading Plans

I have a few reviews for books that I want to read first, but I definitely want to read this one in the next few weeks. It was a highly anticipated release of July 2019 and unfortunately was not one of the ARCs I scored at Book Con 2019. I have a ton of FOMO for this book so I want to read it as soon as I can.

Stay tuned for my review!
