Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Eternal One

At our human limits, when we've gone as far as flesh and imagination can take us, we meet the Eternal One.

His alabaster delicate features tell of his ivory goddess ancestry. Immemorially old, and inconsolable, he is there only for those who seek both revenge and love, and are willing to go all the way -- and beyond.

Turn-of-the-century Bangkok is a glittering modern city where high-tech industry and ancient mystery meet. It is a powerhouse of international finance by day ... and a playground of depravity by night. The Klong Toey shantytowns are home to shadowy erotic emporiums, where millionaire celebrities act out their darkest sexual fantasies, protected by money, influence, and American diplomacy.

Enter a young American journalist, assigned to expose the latest cover-up. Stephen is about to break the two cardinal rules of journalism: Don't fall in love. And don't get killed....

HASH(0x9e583840) out of 5 stars An enveloping journey into a place beyond our comprehension 21 Mar. 2000
By Ian Taylor - Published on
Format: Paperback
American culture often protects us from the realities that occur all over the world. We live in a cookie-cutter sitcom world and it takes a prolific and informed source to bring us out of our illusions. S.P. Somtow does just that. The Crow has never been better in this atmospheric and careening dive into the underworld of modern Bangkok. You can't help but smell the sin and feel the pain around you while S.P. Somtow takes you on a tour of humanity's scarred underbelly. Our character, an unlikely hero. Our villan, a frightening reminder that evil lives inside man as part of us, his madness convincing and as far removed from the earlier, more contrived Crow villians as can be. Without giving anything away, this story is original, true to the Crow legacy, but a masterpiece all it's own and in it's own right. A must read, not for the faint of heart, or the closed minded. Somtow knows the subject matter and presents it beautifully.

HASH(0x9e654d20) out of 5 stars What Was I Thinking? 27 Mar. 2004
By Diane Kuyper - Published on
Format: Paperback
What was I on with my last review for this book? Anyways, being the 4th book so far in the series, it did manage to add some different elements, like past lives and supernatural forces. I liked the fact that Stephen Lelliot could call upon crows to help him in his journey. What I didn't like though was that the action didn't start until 3/4 of the story. That and the end battle was very confusing and what I could understand, there wasn't enough happening. Also, the villian,"Dirk Temple" seemed like a cousin to the bad guy,"Joseph Lethe" in Lazarus Heart. Too many times for that type of character in my honest opinion. Out of all these books so far, Clash By Night is the best one(in my honest opinion).

HASH(0x9efa9e04) out of 5 stars Crow 101 Understanding the Basics 14 Jan. 2002
By Rick Russell - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The original comics that started the Crow franchise were well done, an excellent work even if it was cathartic in nature. The first movie was a wonderful adaptation, but every thing that has come out since is garbage. With one exception. Temple of Night actually succeeds where every other "sequel" has failed. It touches your soul. The entire point of the Crow is not about getting revenge, it's about moving beyond the fetters that your anger forces upon you, that chain you to your past life. Somtow takes his familiarity of Egyptian, Native American and Thai mythologies/religions and turns them all inside out while still pointing out the similarities. This book is a perfect example of how and why creativity can overcome the stigma of the usual sequel; and while this is not Somtow's strongest work, it is still pure Somtow.

HASH(0x9e55c504) out of 5 stars Sparked an interest in reading again 1 Jun. 2006
By John Gonya - Published on
Format: Paperback
Being a die hard "Crow" fan I may be biased . However, after reading this book I intend to find and read all of "The Crow " books I can find . This book in particular reaches out and sucks you in . It goes back to that angst avenged that the original had so masterfully put out . It does have certain points ( super powers? ) that may turn off fans of the first movie . But if you can separate the first Crow story from the rest I assure you you will love this book and others in the Crow series.
HASH(0x9e62a750) out of 5 stars A very hard read.... 13 July 2016
By Mikeydjs - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have read the entire series of The Crow, and this was not as enjoyable as the rest. Insightful on Thai culture, and eye opening in terms of how governments interact and the realities about the sex industry. However, I felt this was written for someone better familiarized with Thai culture and would have been enjoyed and understood better by someone who knows the culture better. Otherwise it was very hard to relate to or envision, imagine. Perhaps someone familiar with the Buddhist religion could have followed this better. Either way it was an interesting take on The Crow mythos.
