Vengeance. Passion. Magic. Power. In order to be crowned King of Jenel, Lord Auglar must first convince the Conclave of Lords to choose him over his rival, the cruel Lord Fellrant. Against his better judgment, Yozerf joins Suchen and the Sworn in their mission to protect Auglar. Betrayed by the other lords, the companions soon find themselves fleeing for their lives into Segg's decaying ghettoes. Trapped in the city with enemies on every side, their only ally seems to be mysterious assassin known as the Crow Queen. Yozerf has a hidden weapon which may prove their salvation; the magic gifted to him by the ghost of his ancestor Telmonra. But as Telmonra's presence grows ever stronger in his mind, Yozerf begins to wonder if the price of his power will be everything he holds dear.

Londah had been nicknamed the Crow Queen, because the carrion birds of Segg had surely grown fat on all the corpses she left in her wake. She was the best assassin to be hired. None were as silent or swift as she. To be a bodyguard went against all she knew, but she had her own reasons for agreeing.
Jenel could not afford to remain leaderless, without a monarch, for much longer. To be crowned King of Jenel, Lord Auglar must convince the Council of Lords that he is worthy. Yozerf, a wolfkin, joined his love, a human named Suchen, and the Sworn for the journey to the deadly city known as Nava Ner in Segg. Yozerf had grown up in the city and knew the horrors within. Suchen is Lord Auglar's Steward. Yozerf would never have returned to the vile place on his own. But to protect Suchen, Yozerf would do anything.
Betrayed by other lords, they soon find themselves on the run, trapped in the city with enemies everywhere. It is up to the Crow Queen and Yozerf to get them out alive.
***** Book 1 is titled "Wolfkin". You do not HAVE to read the first book to understand this one. Yet if you wish the full effect, I strongly suggest that you do so. If you enjoy Fantasy books with wizards, the undead, or shape-shifters, then rejoice! This book has all three and so much more besides.
From the beginning until the end this story goes at full speed. No one seems to be as they claim and everyone seems to have secrets, Yozerf more than others. There will be a third book to round out the tale, but this story ties up most the strings. Nothing major will leave you hanging in a lurch, but there are a few loose ends. Excellent tale and recommended to all fans of Fantasy! *****

To be anointed ruler of Jenel, Auglar must assure the Council of Lords that he is worthy of the honor. Auglar is accompanied by his steward Suchen, Yozerf the Wolfkin and the Sworn on the trek. While Lord Fellrant makes a claim for the throne, Augur and his party are trapped inside dangerous Nava Ner in Segg. Yozerf knows his birth city detesting having to return but willing to die for Suchen. Only Londah and Yozerf can get Auglar and his party out of the city alive, but even with them the odds are insurmountable.
The sequel to the WOLFKIN is a terrific supersonic speed fantasy tale that keeps the readers on edge pondering what will happen next. The key characters are fully developed and the city seems very real to the audience who will wonder how we ended up there. Readers will enjoy the trek through the "urban" cesspool as each distrusts their companions especially when secrets are revealed but need one another because danger and death lurks around every corner. THE CROW QUEEN is a fabulous Lord of Wind and Fire tale that can be read as a solo entry, but the audience will understand the cast even better by reading the previous exciting saga.
Lord Fellrant is also making a claim for the throne. But when the other lords betray them, Auglar and Fellrant are forced into an untrusting alliance, hoping Suchen and the Sworn, aided by a mysterious assassin known as the Crow Queen, can get them out of the rotten ghettoes of Segg alive.
Yozerf has a secret power that could possibly save everyone, but he's afraid to let anyone know about it lest he lose the closes thing to friends he's had since Ginny. Telmonra, the ghost of his ancestor, haunts his mind, tormenting him with his past failures and urging him to take revenge against those who have hurt him in the past. Yozerf begins to wonder if the price of his power will cause him to lose those who have become so dear to him.
Ms. Corvidae has mastered the art of storytelling. With her in-depth characterization, interesting plotlines, and vivid descriptions of her fantasy world, you're guaranteed a fantastic read. THE CROW QUEEN kept me enthralled from page one right up to the ending. I urge you NOT to pass this author up. Elaine Corvidae is one of the best. I most definitely will get in line for DRAGON'S SON as soon as it's released!
Exciting twists and turns around fantasy worlds is what daydreams are made of. I couldn't put this book down.
Each book in the series stands alone, according to the author, but try to read them all, if you can. You will be in for some fantastic adventures with some awesome characters you will either hate or love.
