Blurb: (caw caw!)

Counting down until release day tomorrow! Caws for excitement. Tapping at his window, perching atop his daughter’s grave, why will the crow not let Patrick mourn in peace? According to superstition, a single crow is an omen of bad things to come, so why does Patrick feel compelled to leave his already broken life behind and follow his stubborn uninvited guest into the deep woods. And what delights await?

My thoughts: (Caw)

Yes, a second novella by Mark Towse in one month, and I have no regrets… none at all! Because, bloody hell…

Well, crows is about… commitment, repentance, friendship, harassment, love and family… all this packaged in a horror novella about crows!

The black birds play a central role, of course! And I will never look at those birds the same way now.

From the moment you lay your eyes on this beautiful cover, you see there’s something sinister going on. Well, get reading! Because it’s good! I know I’m vague but I don’t want to spoil anything!

I do need to stress a trigger warning in this novel: certain scenes are not for the faint of heart!

A mixture of Hitchcock’s The Birds with the claustrophobic feeling of Wrong Turn and the folky bits of Children of the Corn!

Want to take a walk in the deep woods?

I’m looking forward to the next Towse!
