Here's the review (and a link for subscribers--it'll be up for everyone in two months):
You don't want to miss the powerful conclusion to the Aspect of Crow trilogy. Smith-Ready tells the story effortlessly and from shifting perspectives. The tension increases and never lets up. Unforgettable characters portray every emotion in a heart-wrenching, hopeful tale. Multiple storylines and escalating conflict reach an uplifting conclusion.
Summary: In Rhia's world, everyone has magic bestowed by their animal spirits. Her gift, the spirit of the crow, shows her a vision of a future that fills her with terror. Her world is threatened by The Descendants, those who disregarded their Guardian spirits to embrace technology. The nonbelievers are determined to conquer Rhia's people and suppress their magic, and Rhia's crow spirit demands sacrifices that will change her life forever. (LUNA, Nov., 480 pp., $14.95)
I was thrilled to read this, because a) did I mention 3 for 3? and b) as I mentioned in my post yesterday, I went for broke with this book, so I wasn't sure how it was going to go over with current fans. Since this reviewer loved the previous two installments (and was partly responsible for Eyes of Crow winning the Reviewers Choice Award for Best Fantasy Novel of 2006), I was anxious to see what she thought.
The November issue of RT should be on newsstands on October 1. No doubt my issue will arrive in the mail much later.
