The stunning conclusion to the award-winning ASPECT OF CROW trilogy

The Reawakened

At one time the Spirits united the land and its people.

Then came the dark days.

She is Rhia, bound to the Spirit of Crow and gifted with vision. In a world besieged by escalating conflict, fate has marked her to deliver the Reawakened from oppression.

Now, with a mighty army of Descendants threatening to crush what’s left of her people’s magic, she must trust an ancient prophecy and accept the power that is her birthright—the power of life and death itself.

For while the storm of revolution rages, the legacy of the Reawakened is about to be rewritten...in her family’s blood.

The Reawakened had twists and turns that kept me guessing till the end...The world is magical, mystical and fantastic but also so realistic...Aspect of Crow Trilogy has really blown me away. I feel like any other book I read now will never make up for this experience. I am going to treasure all three books and I will definitely be reading them again and again.

C2KS Kwips & Kritiques, Recommended Read October 2008

The Reawakened concludes the Aspect of Crow trilogy, and fulfills the expectations raised in Eyes of Crow and Voice of Crow. I read and enjoy a lot of books, and series of books, and when I'm done, I can move along. Sometimes, though, there are stories that are special enough to touch me, and I will go back to them again and again. This is one of those. Aspect of Crow is more than just enjoyable; it is memorable.
