    Really hoping to see this genre bending debut nominated for all the prizes Buxton catapults readers through the apocolpyse in a horrific yet hilarious tale narrated by an unapologically crass crow Anyone would be hard pressed to list a comperable title for this book An off the wall gem.

    This is cleverly funny with a good message, but I couldn t wait to be done with it I loved the first 50 pages but it dragged from that point on The message and the plot were repetitive with a somewhat simplistic view of nature I often zone out when reading battle preparations and scenes and there were numerous fights and conflicts going on here The main character is a precocious crow that uses his human training to unite with nature and animals to save the human race If you have a romantici This is cleverly funny with a good message, but I couldn t wait to be done with it I loved the first 50 pages but it dragged from that point on The message and the plot were repetitive with a somewhat simplistic view of nature I often zone out when reading battle preparations and scenes and there were numerous fights and confli...
