It is twenty-three years since a Macht army fought its way home from the heart of the Asurian Empire. The man who came to lead that army, Rictus, is now a hard-bitten mercenary captain, middle-aged and tired. He wants nothing more than to lay down his spear and become the farmer that his father was. But fate has different ideas. A young war-leader has risen to challenge the order of things in the very heartlands of the Macht. A soldier of genius, he takes city after city, and reigns over them asking. What is more, he has heard of the legendary leader of the Ten Thousand. His name is Corvus, and the rumours say that he is not even fully human. He means to make himself absolute ruler of all the Macht. And he wants Rictus to help him.

One spring, many years ago, Esther Woolfson's daughter rescued a fledgling rook. That rook, named Chicken, quickly established herself as part of the family, and other birds, including an irascible cockatiel and a depressive parrot, soon followed. But it was the corvids - members of the crow family - who amazed Woolfson with their personality and their capacity for affection. This classic blend of memoir and natural history combines the author's fascination with all things avian, from the mechanics of flight to the science of birdsong, with her funny, tender stories of life among the birds.

A witch and a son of Corvus must combine their powers to defeat the witch goddess and save the souls of the Merulas trapped inside the Shadowlands. As host of the newscast, The Scoop At Five: Live!, Catriona Remington prefers to show the world a brave face. Inside she's barely keeping it together, worrying over the fates of Sarina and Jonathan Lance. After they managed to locate the twins' missing father in Blackwater Hills, Sarina stayed behind by choice. Jonathan, however, is being held prisoner in the castle dungeon for the crime of homicide. When she receives disturbing news from the senior Medicus of Blackwater castle, Catriona enlists J. Lance Sr.'s help to infiltrate the dimension of the children of Corvus and aid her friends. But an irresistible attraction to Samuel Singleton, the newly crowned leader of the tribe, awakens a power she's been suppressing since leaving the coven. Also complicating matters, is Sarina's mystifying and debilitating illness. When Catriona follows Samuel into the Shadowlands to rescue his father, she finds herself at the mercy of the witch goddess and her demons. In order to save his father's spirit and protect his mate, Samuel must learn to embrace his power and his duty to his tribe as the Merula. He must also learn to accept Bestiae--the god-like part of himself he can't control without the help of wolfsbane potion. Can Catriona be the bridge that ends the centuries' long feud between the sons of Corvus and the daughters of Venefica? Or will the mere fact that she was born a witch irreparably damage the Balance in Blackwater Hills, and provoke the wrath of the Raven of Otherworld? CORVUS is book three in the compelling contemporary fantasy trilogy about a tribe of shapeshifters, deep within the inhospitable forest of northern Maine USA, in an alternate dimension known as Blackwater Hills.

The people of Ledford cherish the mysterious island of blue-eyed crows and ravens in the midst of the big river that cuts their city in two. The island-uninhabited since the days of the old hermit for whom it was named-beckons outcast Jesuit scholar and ornithologist Alfredo Manzi to its dark forest. He meets Charlie, a blue-eyed crow who seems to be expecting him. The crow tells Manzi he is one of the last of the Patua', a Homo sapien subspecies with a strange ability to verbally communicate with the corvids, a group of highly intelligent birds that includes ravens and crows. Manzi learns to his growing amazement that he is not the first of his kind to visit Wilder Island, and that it holds many secrets of his ancient, vanishing race. The corvids put all hope upon him to bring the Patua' back from the edge of oblivion and save the Earth from the ravages of human technology. But the island itself is in grave danger of a takeover from a land developer whose plans will most certainly destroy the unique corvid population forever, as well the legacy of the Patua'. Manzi begins fulfilling his mission to save the enchanted wilderness, enlisting help from the corvids, another Patua', and a colleague and his wife, who is about to uncover her own secrets. In this fantasy tale, corvids and humans must band together to save their beloved island from destruction-before it is too late.
