Timy reviews The Bone Ship's Wake, the third book in RJ Barker's Nautical Fantasy trilogy, The Tide Child. She previously reviewed The Bone Ships and Call of the Bone Ships. The Bone Ship's Wake is to be published on August 30, 2021, by Orbit.
Then There Were Crows is a fast paced, enjoyable read - if you have a certain kind of humor and don't mind some violence here and there. This is a rather dark, horroresque urban fantasy with unique characterisation and promising ideas. With some improvements here and there (editing, writing - see my complaints above) this series can grow into something good and worthy of attention all fans of horror, dark fantasy, urban fantasy and everyone in between who like their story with a good measure of snark and violence.
